Is it genetics or is it insane work ethic? I get told quite frequently “you’re so lucky to have the genetics you have.” . . . Most people don’t know that when I was 14 years old I would do 4-500 crunches. EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. I did this for years........(I do not recommend this now 🤣 as an educated professional) BUUUUT it’s what I did. . . While my friends were eating Cheetos at sleepovers I declined and completed my nightly routine. . . It’s easy to get in a pattern of thinking that others have it easier, or better, but until you look deep you really don’t know what it took to get there. ❤️
There’s no faking hard work and consistency. When people ask me why I LOVE dong what I do is because it constantly challenges to me be better. It challenges me to show up and push my limits wether they be mental or physical. Molding my body to be something great is not something I could do without pushing past my own limiting beliefs. . . That’s what I love so much about health and fitness. The 13 years of running, lifting, yoga, hiking and whole nutrition can not be replaced with skinny teas, yoyo dieting or going to the gym “when I feel like it.” . . It’s failing, its tears, it's questioning your path and then getting right back to what you know to be true. . . It isn’t easy but neither is living in a body you hate. . .

Another super busy day for me. Up and early for my 2nd MRI on my hip. It looks like I have a tear in my labrum and a small bone spur which is worsening the tear. For those of you reaching out I am A-O-K. We will wait and see the results. The rest of the day has been selling furniture, packing up my room and unpacking for my new place! 😊 Anyone wanna play how many times can Natalie move in a 1 year time span?? #thelimitdoesnotexhist Lol super exhausted drinking all the coffee I can see so I can be ready for all my NK babes tonight!! 😍😍😍 #ilovemyjob . And for those wondering about the no cow bars they’re one of the few protein bars that I use on the go. Lol for times like now and for the first half of my Euro trip. Yessss I brought a box with me! 🤣🤣Being so busy I still like to get in quality nutrition. 💪🏼These are very natural tasting with no artificial crap, so if you’re used to super sweet bars be warned! ❤️My go- to’s are the peanut butter and mint chocolate!!

I had a consultation with a beautiful woman yesterday and she chose to start training with me because she was sick of not taking care of herself. She wanted to finally take charge of her health and that’s why she chose to work with me. Not just physical aspects but the mental too. .
She told me many things about her life and expressed that she HOPED this would work and motivate her to change. .
What I told her and what I’ll tell you is that hope has NOTHING to do with it. It’s about grit and discipline. It’s about wanting something SO BAD you’re not going to let every day life obstacles get in the way. Hiring a coach is great and you better believe I strive to be the best coach to my girls every day. But I’ll tell you and them If you are hoping for something, the moment shit gets tough, it’s over. No one can create change in your life other than you. You have to work for it, every. Single. Day. .
Hey, I’m human too. There are days I feel like absolute garage. I don’t have the motivation to serve myself I think how the hell am I gonna motivate all my clients? But that is MY choice, it is my choice to live in that state and it is my choice to take charge and create a new positive state. .
Believe me, I’m just like you. I have my doubts and bad days but I also lean back on my why. Your why will always serve you when you’re asking yourself how you will get through the days that seem impossible. . Lol ok, rant OVER. Did anyone even read this?? 😂 Please comment thoughts below and let me know! 🙌🏼 . . . #virginiabeach#chesapeake#norfolk#abs#girlswithabs#girlswholift#fitfam
Your relationship with working out is one where you get what you give. If you’re laser focused with consistently building NEW better habits around nutrition and exercise, you will transform. No question. If you are inconsistent with your workouts and eating foods that are not in line with your goals, you will not progress. Plain and simple. We’re ALWAYS moving in a direction, it’s you’re choice to make it a good one. 💕💪🏼 Who’s ready to make massive change? Comment one thing you’re doing today to make it PROGRESSIVE instead of regressive. . . . #virginiabeach#norfolk#chesapeake#abs#girlswholift#girlswholift#motivate#workout#girlswithabs#bestself

This morning has already been a huge eye-opening experience for me. I think A lot of times we hold ourselves back from reaching our full potential. I myself, know that’s one of my weaknesses that I’m working every day to improve upon. . . Today I was fortunate enough to hear an amazing story about a woman who had a very small business here in Virginia Beach. Last year her business partner passed away tragically. But this extreme hardship didn’t tear her down, it built her up. She is now helping more and more clients, connecting with her community and now has 5 employees working with her. #amazing. This reminder was exactly what I needed to hear today and I hope it helps you see that no matter what comes your way you can over come it. . . . I also wanted to say how AMAZING it’s been with all you girls reaching out to me through DM’s. All your stories are so beautiful and unique and I’m so happy that you all are deciding to CREATE your future! 😭❤️ #soproud So WELCOME to the girls who are meeting me this week for the first time! I’m SO EXCITED to meet you babes! 😭😭💪🏼 . . . #virginiabeach#chesapeake#fitness#noexcuses#fitspo#inspire#fitness#nkfit
