Shout out to my homegirl Chemé! We met earlier this year when she was preparing for her first figure competition. She needed some help with her stage presence. We posed, we laughed, we connected. She is one of the strongest people that I know! I am blessed to have her in my corner. :) #FitbyTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#Strong#StrongWomen#ShesDope#Awesomeness
To know me is to know that I cannot sit still... I am so excited to get back into the gym and continue working on my weaknesses. I already knew what events I would crush yesterday and which ones I would struggle with. I am very honest with myself... some say I underestimate myself at times and that is due to my perfectionist personality. Not only do I want to execute movements, I want them to be efficient, pretty to watch and technically sound. In other words, FLAWLESS! Some say I am obsessed... my response? “My obsession is what will make me fucking great... you’ll see!” Professional athletes do post game interviews and they can list things that were done well and things they could do better. With that mindset I know I will DOMINATE whatever goal I set my sights on! #FitbyTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#IFBB#IFBBPro#FollowYourHeart#Passionate#ReadyToWork#RestDayIsBoring#SoreAF#Savage#FitSpo#IGFit#BackToWork#Focused#Determined
A few weeks ago, Brian asked me to be his partner at Battle of the Boxes. I kept it a huge secret from my CrossFit Westchester family, friends and clients. I chose to work in silence and let the results speak for themselves. I also was scared, anxious, excited, and had butterflies all day. I’m happy to say that Brian and I finished in a 3-way tie for 2nd place! I’m elated with these results as I have been training Crossfit-style for less than 2 years. It was an amazing day with members of various Crossfit communities. Thank you Brian for encouraging me and pushing me past my comfort zones. And a huge thank you to my roommate Mikey who worked with me one-on-one to prepare me for today. This was a huge personal success for me!! #FitbyTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#FollowYourHeart#Masters#CrossFit#CrossFitCompetition#Westchester#CrossFitWestchester#BOTB#BattleOfTheBoxes @bgahhhhvin @westchester_fit_mikey @limitless_fitness_coach
"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great" My brother pushing me through to the finish line. For last 300 meters, I was sprinting at a 6:50 pace time. That simply means that even though I suffered through two big hills and was crawling at certain points of the course, I still had some fight left in me to finish strong. We don't walk across finish lines, WE SPRINT THROUGH THEM!!!! #FitByTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#5K#SweatItOut#Fitness#Family#BringItOn#BrotherAndSister
If you only knew how many YEARS I worked my ass off. LITERALLY, I had to crawl out from the depths of hell on earth to get my health in order and FINALLY feel comfortable in my own skin. Yes.... it was THAT HARD... but I never gave up on myself. I was in great shape many years ago, but lost it by overtraining and undereating... all for the sake of being lean and trying to get myself to the Miss Olympia stage. I REALLY WANTED THAT OPPORTUNITY and made huge sacrifices to try to get to that level. Now, I am just so grateful to be healthy and to be able to do what I love to do... TRAIN HARD! I feel so lucky, and I'm grateful for the GRIT I earned in the process. I am UNBREAKABLE. #FitByTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#Champion#IFBB#IFBBPro#MasterTrainer#Competition#Figure#FigurePro#Bodybuilding#Almost40#Fitness#BringItOn#Unbreakable#TryMe
I spent my day with this angel... My Goddaughter Bailee. ❤️❤️ As my birthday winds down, I cannot help but reflect back on earlier days when the one thing I wanted most in life was to be a mother. I know, I still have time... but over the past few years, I've come to accept and enjoy my independence. I still have a very strong maternal instinct and children tend to gravitate towards me, perhaps because of my child-like fun-loving ways, but it really has fallen lower on my list of priorities. Instead of beating myself up over something I can't control or dwelling on what is absent in my life... I am so grateful for everyday of life and am thanking my lucky stars for my brothers, parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, coworkers and friends, and of course this little handful, all of which make up MY FAMILY! It was beautifully overwhelming that my phone was buzzing all day long from calls, texts, messages all sending me love today. THANK YOU ALL!! #FitByTiana#NeverGiveUp#Ronin#FollowYourHeart#Virgo#Bluejay#Truth#Blessed#Vulnerable#Honest#LookingForward#BirthdayGirl#Love#Amor
Where do I possibly begin with explaining how amazing this women is and how great of an impact she has had over me in such a short amount of time (20ish months to be exact)🙏🏼 She led me to the stage the second time around with the greatest physique I've ever had, she's guided me both professionally and personally, she's been that shoulder to cry on, that kick of motivation to say "ok now put your big girl pants on", that "omg stop making me laugh it hurts so hard😂😅🤣 #oscardelarenta or #oscardelahoya 🤔, the ying to my yang, the elephant to my unicorn 🐘🦄, my soul sista 👯
And on this 28th day of August, I want to wish her a very Happy Birthday 😘💜💜 @fit_by_tiana wishing I was there today to #birthdaybrunch it out with you, buttttt I'll see you one month from today to make up for it😘🙃😜 #cuddles lol
Love you to the moon and back!!!
Just in time for hump day! 🍑🍑🍑🍑🍑
Remember last week when I posted about a collaboration with my woman @Fit_By_Tiana ? And remember I mentioned that she would be doing a Part 2 where she goes over some bodybuilding moves that are beneficial to CrossFitters? (And that 2/3 of those moves really get you in the bootae?) .
Well it’s heeerreeeee !! AND she even includes some ways for you to try to incorporate it into your workout routine!
Read all about it for yourself via the link in my bio! And if you have any questions please ask!
Check out the latest blog from my Soul Sista Johnna @isquatforpancakes. LINK IS IN MY BIO ABOVE! This is part 1 of a 2 part series!! #FitByTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#NYCvsMiami#CrossFitvsBodybuilding#CrossFit#Bodybuilding#IFBB#IFBBPro#LoveWhatIDo#Collaboration#Repost @isquatforpancakes (@get_repost)
Hiiii beautiful people!
I wrote another blog post! 📝 This one is super special because it's my very FIRST collaboration with a professional in another fitness arena! .
I teamed up with @Fit_By_Tiana , an amazing energy, personal trainer and pro body builder to show her some CrossFit moves she can add to her training repertoire. And the best part? She showed me some body building moves I can add to my CrossFit'ing (stay tuned for that post by Tiana herself)! .
Ok enough chit chat- the link is in my bio. Hint hint: 1 move is none other than Satan's Chariot (AKA the @assaultairbike 😱😱😱)
I hope you enjoy and as always thank you for reading and for your support 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
It's been almost 6 months since she moved and when we see each other, it's like we don't miss a beat! Thank you Jess for taking care of me and Mikey on our last night in Miami. I love how you are so girly... all unicorns and rainbows... and your favorite tv show is The Walking Dead 😂😂😂 What a combination!! #FitByTiana#NeverGiveUp#Warrior#SheLovesUnicorns#NYtoMiami#Girlfriends#Amor
Gonna miss this beauty!! @isquatforpancakes
On Saturday night, I attended The Reebok CrossFit Miami Beach Social @reebokcfmb ... I suppose since I spent the entire week there, I have earned honorary member status. It certainly feels like home when I'm there and I was so touched by how kind and inviting the community is. Johnna has a whole lot to do with that and I am so grateful we met back in April. She shines so bright and cares so deeply for her clients. I'm looking forward to the next time, my gorgeous friend. 💜😘 #FitByTiana#NeverGiveUp#HotLadies#BlueJay#FollowYourHeart#ShineBright#SpeakTruth
