As we wrap up the year of 2016 it always draws me towards some serious reflection of my life and it's direction that it's taken me this year. I believe the biggest lesson that I have learned is to push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of. The image and quote above couldn't say it better, in that you are only confined to the box you put yourself in. Allow those walls to come down and really reach for what you want. Only you get to decide what that means for you. For me 2016 meant pushing through what I thought was a devastating injury that allowed me to gain unnecessary weight while I struggled both mentally and physically to overcome. Not until I started teaching my Strength and Power class did I ever know what I was capable of as an athlete, trainer, friend, mom, wife and overall person. Now I am as strong physically and mentally as I have ever been! You see the power that comes from gaining physical strength will allow you to gain strength in areas of your life you never knew possible. It's time to break down those walls and watch yourself grow!! The power comes within - choose you!!
