Keep your dreams alive. Remember that to achieve anything you have to have hard work, vision, determination, dedication and confidence in yourself. When you catch yourself comparing yourself to the guy/girl next to you, you start taking away from everything you've invested.
On a less #fitspo note, I wish he let me practice my camera skills more. If anyone in Orlando wants to roam around & take pics, hit me up doe 💁🏽
Get after yoooo goals fam
The past.. 45 Yaşındaki Şafak abimiz oğlu için taylanda kadar bizimle geldi. Oğluna örnek olmak için bizi kırmayıp ringe çıkıp dövüştü bu akşam... sadece 3 aylık antremanla 30 yaşındaki rakibine karşı ringe çıkıp Türk ün ne demek olduğunu Taylanda gösterdi.. dünyada taklit edilemeyen tek şey cesarettir. Sen çok yaşa abim 🙏🙏 @safakdalkilinc
That moment when your just sitting on the floor contemplating life because you can't get up quite yet. Leg day from hell early on this Saturday. 3 low carbs day in a row and torrential downpour can't stop me from killing my workout. I got the question yesterday why I don't post more gym selfies on Instagram. Specifically said that if you don't prove to other people that you work hard does it even count. Seriously?! I don't work my ass off for other people. I do it for me. If you only have external motivation for something then maybe it's time to find another passion. I crave the struggle of a tough set. I love the feeling of my muscles burning, heart racing, sweat dripping. The gym is my therapy it's where I have truly found my passion. I love this. It actually gets me emotional to think of how much this all means to me. I push as hard as possible for me. Whatever you do in life do it because you want to. Don't do something just to check it off a list. Put your heart into and kill it. When in doubt F.I.T.F.O. aka figure it the fuck out (sorry for the language). #fitness#personaltrainer#trainer#legday#preplife#bikinicompetitor#teamtongstrong#tongstrong#lean#motivation#passion#dedication#gym#workout#fitfo#success
-Oct2016: I was transitioning from a bikini competitor to figure. My second show. My diet & discipline were okay. I ate way more than I should've lol but I did extra cardio to make up for what I was eating. &'let's not forget about the sauna time. - December2016: I had very little discipline. I was going through so much in my life around that time and I barely ate or had an appetite. My stress level was on a million and I was preparing to move into a new home I wasn't prepared for. Depression kicked in and I was going to cancel the show because I wasn't feeling up to par, but I knew a lot of people looked up to me & I would feel like a quitter if I did. -The last picture is June2017: No diet lol eating whatever I see and working out whenever I have the chance. It was a long 5 months of doing absolutely nothing, but I needed the break. Thankfully my muscles didn't disappear on me. Genetics and a fast metabolism took me a long way. I can't wait to see what I will look like on stage this year. 💪🏾 #beastmode what color suit should I choose next?
I want to congratulate @johnny_deuce on several accomplishments. First today is his wedding day. 🙏🏼👍🏽. Second - your transformation is amazing but not shocking when you put your mind to it. You gained a new lifestyle, a beautiful wife and a strong mind. You lost 80lbs in 9 months. You did it the right way and understand the journey. You gained muscle, lost fat, lost visceral fat and most importantly you understand that it is your choices that affect your lifestyle. I'm so proud of you #uagfit#trainer#progression#lifestylechange#weddingtimeforjohnny#uag#northrdige
Prone Barbell Rows on a Saturday! 📸 @keishmurphy
Why prone position?
There's no momentum involved + the posterior chain is supported allowing me to fully engage + isolate my lats + upper back. Make sure to squeeze at the top of the pull and resist the drop!! 🏋🏼♀️💪🏻🙌🏽💣😁
