Statue Dedication 🗿

I did some sprints last night. The 1500 and 800. Okay, so technically not a sprint, but it is for me.


The 800 is my least favorite event in track. Sure, there are aspects that I love about it…like the fact that it only takes a little less than 2 and a half minutes to complete. Or the fact that as soon as you come through your first lap, you are already on your bell lap. All awesome stuff!

But then, in the middle of that bell lap, your body starts to feel hollow. Emptied out of muscles, bone, all you feel is your thoughts floating through your mind. Until suddenly, liquid cement fills the emptiness, every step forward causes that concrete to set in, harden, until you reach the final 100m and you feel as if you have turned to stone.


You push as your stone body feels like it is going to crack in half from the exertion. And then, bam! You cross that finish line and crumble over in a heap of shattered statue.


Slowly, the concrete melts and you become human again. Life returns to your body as you pull yourself off the track.


Why do you do it? If it makes you feel this way…


Because I know that if I want to reach my goals, then this is one of the building blocks to get there.


Sometimes you have to do the things you don’t want to do, in order to be who you want to be.


I’m not saying going out there and race an 800 and feel this way. But when it comes to reaching your goals, there are times when you need to do things that make you feel uncomfortable.


These moments are meant to teach us how far we are willing to go to achieve what we want. These moments teach us determination and perseverance. You get through the tough times in order to reach the success.


This could be doing the cleanse, even though it scares you or makes you feel uncomfortable.


This could be you signing up for a 5k or lifting that heavier weight.

Whatever it is, there is going to be a period of ‘suck’ to get to the finish. Those periods are building blocks that get you where you want to be.

Your Shot of Espresso ☕️

I had my first ever espresso shot the other morning. My eyes were heavy and my brain felt sluggish. I needed a pick me up, fast. I cooled it down with water and down the hatch it went. My face contorted in my “disgusting” face similar to one you would make after taking a shot of tequila.



It did the job. Almost instantaneously, the curtain lifted from my eyes and I started talking a mile a minute.


I can see why people love their coffee so much. That caffeine gives a good, strong kick! (If only it didn’t taste like burnt beans, maybe then I would enjoy it).


Regardless, sometimes we all need that kick in the butt to get us going. Maybe it’s the pre-vacation last ditch effort, or the post vacation penance from your “sins”. Maybe your jeans just don’t fit right anymore or you just turned another year older.


Whatever your kick in the butt is, your coaches are here to provide motivation, expertise, and encouragement so that “caffeine buzz” of the kick lasts long past that first workout, first week, or first year!


Remember, your coaches are always here for you, so if you need anything, don’t hesitate to reach out to them!


If you are looking to get started, now is the time! Lift the curtains from your eyes and come in for a free trial workout! >>>

I Got It From My Papa!

My dad and I are pretty similar. We are both third borns, with our 2 older siblings being the opposite gender of us. We both have inquisitive minds that are constantly running on twelve cylinders. We both run (or ran competitively). So, it’s no surprise that many of his core beliefs were passed on down to me.


Here are some of the things he taught me over the years:



1 – Ever since I was little and dreaming all my big dreams, my dad never once stopped me to say “you aren’t good enough, or talented enough, or whatever enough.”


Instead, he always told me that if I wanted something bad enough, I just had to work for it. And work for it I did (and still do).


No dream is too big if you are willing to put in the effort to get there.


2 – I used to want to be just like my dad when I grew up. Except when I would shadow him at the office, I couldn’t help but find myself pinching myself to stay awake. Being an eye doctor wasn’t for me, and that was okay.


My dad always harped on the notion that if you find something you are passionate about, you’ll never work a day in your life.


My dad LOVES being an eye doctor, his compassion and drive makes him one of the best. He used to call me in college all the time to tell me about his interesting cases, knowing I would be fascinated, but more than that, I loved hearing the excitement of what he does in his voice.


He always pushed me to pursue my passion, even in an industry that isn’t very career oriented, because he knew that’s where my passion lies (thank you Fit Tribe for the opportunity of a lifetime, where fitness IS a career!)



3 – Always send a thank you note…it’s a simple gesture that let’s someone know just how much they mean to you. In college, I used to spend hours hand crafting thank you cards and filling them with words of passion and gratefulness to those who helped in all my success.


So, take a moment to thank someone for something they did for you, you never know how much that person might just need to hear what you have to say.


These are just 3 things that my dad taught me and I share with you because of how important this wisdom has been in my life.


If there’s anything you need help with relating to fitness, health, nutrition, I would love to pass my knowledge on, or you could come on in for a free trial workout and get to know some incredible coaches and Fit Tribers >>>


Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, may your day be filled with family, love, and some relaxation! 🙂

Our Dirty Little Secrets

Today on Fit Tribe TV, we played a game that was **awesome** on so many levels…if you missed it, you can watch it here:


But here’s the gist: all the coaches sat on chairs next to each other, Mike read out a phrase that said something like “move 2 chairs to the left if you currently have unpaid parking tickets.” If the statement was true, you moved…and it didn’t matter if there was someone already sitting in the seat you were moving to, you just sat on their lap.


We just kept going like this and eventually, we ended up almost all in one seat! (I feel bad for the person on the bottom!!!)


It was hilarious!!!


But more than that, it helped us bond even more as a team. And team is very important. You can do a lot more together than you can as an individual. I’m blessed that every day I am surrounded by incredible teammates that all have my best interest in mind.


Being able to bond as coaches, aids us in building the community within Fit Tribe. The atmosphere that we are all here; together, working hard; together, reaching goals; together is what makes Fit Tribe such an incredible place.


Now, I could go on and on about why I love Fit Tribe so much, but I will spare you all the mushy-gushy details. Most of you know for yourselves firsthand anyways 😉


But for those of you who don’t and haven’t experienced Fit Tribe yet, definitely come in for a free trial workout and see what I’m talking about! >>>

Money in the Bank – Rosie’s Ramblings

I just bought a Groupon to a trampoline place near my house. *I AM SO EXCITED!* I haven’t jumped around on a trampoline since I saved up to buy one for over a year and convinced my parents why it was important that we had one.


I used every thought of reasoning I could when I was selling my parents on the idea of the trampoline…


But the biggest one of them all, was that I was going to save all my money over the next year or more in order to make the big purchase. They weren’t going to spend a dime.


And it worked. In about a year and a half, we were setting up the trampoline in the flat spot of our backyard. Our place was now a backyard all the neighborhood kids wanted to come to because, hello, TRAMPOLINE!


You might be wondering, what’s the connection? Where is Rosie going with this?


Well…it took time for an 11 year old to save up enough cash to buy what they had their eyes set on. It meant passing up on ice cream at lunch (now you KNOW I’m serious) so I could save the extra $1. It meant self control as I saw other kids buy new toys for their gameboys, but knowing that I would soon reach my goal.


And when I did, it was a blast!


It’s much like investing in your health. At first you are far away, you are just getting started. But then – you start making a dent and get closer to your goals. You might have some setbacks… but eventually you reach that goal. And it feels so good, like a kid bouncing around on a trampoline. 🙂


Wherever you are in your journey, don’t give up. You’ve put money in the bank, just keep pushing forward and soon you’ll be able to cash in and see the fruits of your hard work!
