Mistakes I’ve made with training

I have an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Acadia. Acadia is #blessed, because we actually learned how to train multiple different ways/people and actually had real life experiences. I am now a clinical exercise physiologist where I consult with physicians and am currently doing my masters in exercise oncology. What I’m trying to say is, I know my stuff. Although, just because I know my stuff on paper and have had success with my own training and programming for other

I'm excited, thank you.

I woke up on December 30th so excited and amped for the new year. It was a different feeling. It wasn’t a feeling of hope, but more so a feeling of fulfillment. I felt at ease.

So far, I have completed Season 1 with 7 amazing conversations. To kick it off, I want to talk about Chernise and Melanie… Chernise Clayton https://www.inst

More Than Genetics

Every new year I write down BIG, but very realistic goals and ideas that I want to accomplish. Very cliché, yes, but I love the thought of manifesting positive changes for my life lol. There isn’t ever a solid time frame; basically, just get it done before new year’s eve, simple. So, with all that said – I will tell you one of these BIG ideas I had. An excerpt from my journal: “This year I want to connect with more black fitness professionals and athletes, workout with them a
