I remember when I started my jewelry business 19 years ago. I could never find simple classic designs that were made with care & didn’t cost an arm and leg. . . . There was always cheapo trendy stuff and super high end Tiffany’s stuff. But there wasn’t jewelry that was carefully made, affordable, and designed so I could wear it for years. . So, I started designing the kind of pieces I wanted. My mission has been and continues to be, to create classic, feminine pieces that can last you for decades. . . The piece above is one of my new and simple designs that gives a nod to the inception of my business. Tap photo to get it onto your neck.
What makes me appreciate this friend @Tara.woodland, who I haven’t met in real life yet, are her sincere clean intentions. . . . She puts out a message of environmental concerns for all of us, by pointedly starting in a business of clean beauty- @BeautyCounter. She puts out messages of strength by what she does in her own fitness practice. She sends out messages of positivity showing us her cool little family and the antics the little people get into. . . She’s my idea of #strongaf inside and out. . . Tap the photo to be twinsies with this momma and get the hoodie.👆🏼
💥Looking for a great exercise to supplement your explosive development?💥 Try seated box jumps (add dumbbells once comfortable). Seated box jumps help focus on triple extension while removing the counter movement component of the hips and knees. If you add dumbbells (or a med ball), you also remove the counter movement of the arms. This really forces athletes to maximize the hip space they have to reach their target. NOTE: Remember to first become efficient at jumping and landing. When performing the exercise, you don't want to sacrifice speed for weight. The goal is to be able to move the load as fast as possible with optimal technique. Happy Hopping! . . . #coachknows#strengthandconditioning#tiptuesday#wegobeastmode#jumpday#boomgoesthedynamite#ironstrong#performancematters#findyourgrunt#fitnessfun
I put a lot of time, money, and effort into creating (finally!) the gym that my clients deserve. Better attention, atmosphere, and equipment. 💪 I can give my clients good workouts with a paper clip. That’s not the hard part. But training them to do better, lift without pain, and overcome obstacles. . . That’s what Jungle Gym is about. 📎📎 I haven’t deadlifted in 3 months (been too busy - yes, it happens) and today I hit a double for 443. Beforehand, I doubted myself. Here’s why: I trained for it. I did light back squats early in the week because I didn’t want my back hurting while I was moving gym equipment around all day. The next day, I still wanted to train legs so I used my belt squat machine allowing me to not put more pressure on my back. 👴🏻 Today, I used a @texasstrengthsystems dead-lift bar, a dead-lift jack (cause loading plates off the floor is terrible for you), and and warmed up on an Air Assault treadmill (shows more focus on form and puts you in a good landing stride for your joints). ☠️☠️ Yes, the equipment is expensive, but it’s needed. Not for a great workout, but for my client’s safety, peace of mind, and a better overall experience in training the individual and not the group. 💰 This place is filled with stuff like that and we can’t wait to utilize it. For trainers and gym owners that think it’s not needed, well, they just don’t know. Nor will they until they use it. 🏋️ We’ve got the community, the trainers, and the attention to detail to help you get to where you need to go. We’ve had that for 7 years, but now we have the equipment. ❤️ We would love to have you experience it all, whether you’re a cardio bunny or a iron loving lion. 🐰🦁 Here’s to you, clients and future clients! Can’t wait to see the growth, literally and metaphorically. #junglegym#readysetroar#ironjungle#ironstrong
