Confidence is Silent. Insecurities are Loud.

 

Hey guys!

Congrats on starting your Blogilates August Workout Calendar with a BANG!! Saw so many of you posting with your calendar selfies. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, go here.

Did you get a chance to preview your new Monday workout? It’s POP Pilates for Beginners: Slim ‘n Sculpt. I thought it was a good time to bring it back to basics. But basics doesn’t necessarily mean easier. It means PROPER FORM. So actually, you may discover why some of my moves feel “too easy” or why you “don’t feel it in the right places.” I highly encourage you to watch this video above to get a refresh on the foundation of your POP Pilates practice!

This is the punny tank I wore in the video! :D It’s literally my favorite thing right now. Do you like puns? This design was a test to see if POPsters are punny people or not. So if you like it, let me know in the comments so that I can design more tanks like this! And awesome news…all of these tanks go from Small to 2XL! Yay for fitness fashion in ALL sizes :) Check it out here.

ronda

Did you see the Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia fight? Well even if you didn’t tune in to watch, there’s no doubt that you probably caught the buzz on social media this morning! I made this image above for Instagram and it seemed to strike a chord with many people. It even started trending on Instagram under #RondaRousy with over 41,000 likes and now on Facebook, it has over 200,000 likes and 75,000 shares! Literal craziness.

So I want to share with you the caption I wrote along with the photo:

I’m not one to watch fights, but this morning I couldn’t ignore all the buzz around #RondaRousey‘s fight vs. Bethe Correia who had been trash talking her leading up to the event, making fun of her father’s suicide and implying that Ronda was mentally unstable.
It’s low to attack someone off-court. But it’s even worse to bring your opponent’s family into it! Ronda knocked her out in just 34 seconds.

What I love about Ronda is that she’s showing what it looks like to “fight like a girl.” She also represents a body type that some may criticize for being “too masculine.” But you know what? She offers soooooo much more than her looks (which btw, I think she’s gorgeous)! This is a reminder to all of you that no matter how strong, successful, rich or famous you get, there will ALWAYS be haters. Most likely there will be even more. But don’t listen to them. Keep doing your thing. Keep being you. That’s how you’ll end up on top.

Love seeing strong, powerful women! Whether that’s in business, in sports, or whatever…I love supporting other female powerhouses. It’s so inspiring to see so much positive press around women.

Who is your inspiration?
