me: glitter, faeries, flowers, lovey things also me: ———————— knowing that you don’t have to categorize yourself with any specific labels / traits / whatever is the most liberating....be strong! be kind! be all of the things, baby!!!!
35 yrs ago a husband and wife asked if I would show them how to workout and said, "We'll pay you." I thought it was such a novel concept #personaltraining I had never heard of personal training and I don't think it really existed back then. There were definitely no certification organizations. # So that's where it all started. # Occasionally I'll be doing a movement and someone will come up to me and say that I'm doing it wrong. For example, I like doing the preacher curl backwards...it makes so much more sense. I usually keep my mouth shut and just smile, but today I told the 20 something year old kid that Arnold showed me that move at World's Gym in 1986. If it is good enough for him it is good enough for me. # Many years ago I made a promise to myself to not use age as an excuse. To not think like an old person. I always try to keep an open and fresh mind. I always guard my thoughts. I NEVER allow the thought, "I am too old for that". # I believe the most dangerous ones are the curmudgeon thoughts. As I age I see others my age, and older, fall into the 'grumpy old man/woman' syndrome. Maybe they have failed so many times they can't get back up, maybe they are unhappy about their lot in life. # Every day is a new day. A day I have never seen before. Who knows what door will open and change my course. Like the couple who offered to pay me to open a new world for them. By the way, they are still at it today. #ilovemyjob

Ha! I don’t do selfies but it is a rainy day and I’m bored and I’m feeling GOOD! . My n=1 experiment is to see how long I can hold onto my strength, movement, health, telomeres, without giving in to the social norm of taking drugs, hormones, facelifts... . The pressure is enormous for an aging female. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I won’t have tight skin as I age, but I’ll be damned if I lose my hard earned muscle. . Watch me age the way nature intended. It may not be pretty but I will be strong AF . #pumpnfe#100pullups#200pushups#5minutehandstandhold#11%bodyfat #oldisntdead#nodrugs#59#sarcopeniasucks#ancestralhealth#huntress
As I brave the elements to shovel snow and sling salt in order to protect my fellow Olympians from this frozen hellscape, I notice that I’m still as warm and comfortable as a summer’s breeze. The reason? My CSPT branded hoodie. Order yours today! #coreyslaglepersonaltraining 📷: @charlottearichardson

Find your stillness in the storms. ___ This is our shelter from the storms. Our place of refuse. Our santucary. Our home. Some can't seem to fully comprehend that. ___ But sometimes, even the strongest shelters fall due to the mighty storms that burden us all. ___ The silver lining? Those same storms blow forth the seeds of new growth. Change. ___ This place has protected me for 8 years of my existence, allowing me to grow into who I am today. This is the tree to my lowly acorn. But this particular acorn plans to grow more than a thousand trees. ___ After every dark storm, there's always a bright day ahead. Just keep your head up. We got this. ___ #thankyouoac
