💫 #transformationtuesday SHOUT OUT!! 💫
This week's shout out goes out to my sister-in-law Josee.
She decided to join me in my 80 Day Obsession challenge in January and completely rocked it! She managed to lose 15.5lbs and a whole lot of inches.
When Josée started her journey, she felt tired, sluggish and a little discouraged. Now she sleeps better, is in a much better mood and has a whole lot more energy. She says for the first time, she has found a love for working out!
She also fell in love both Shakeology for the fact that it tasted great and helped with her cravings as well as the portion control containers and timed-nutrition that kept her feeling full and not like she was depriving herself.
Josée is continuing her journey while doing the new LIIFT4 program and is already in for a second round of 80 Day Obsession in September!
First Endosleeve surgery in Lebanon was successfully done on Friday at BMG Hospital by the mentor ship of Professor Aayed Al Qahtani and BSC team; Dr. Issam Matar, Dr. Ali Khalil, and Dr. Hayssam Fawal.
Both patients were discharged in excellent shape after 5 hours.
A special thank you to the whole team who made it a success!

🇬🇧 In this life there can be no excuses. Yesterday I had an operation on my foot which left me with holes in my feet the size of bullet wounds... Do I care? Not really 😂. It’s important to keep the form, to not let your body lose the fight to a faster recovery.
It was hard, had to keep balance on one foot which made it really difficult to do certain exercises as the weight gets spread differently, which I am not used to.
After the workout I passed out for 2 hours of deep sleep because of how exhausting it was. But I’m not a quitter. There are people with much worse disabilities and health issues which do this every day, so who am I to stop because of some injury?
Never back down, don’t give up and do you always. This is the key to a healthy and long life! 💪🏽
🇷🇺 Никогда не сдаваться - вот главная жизненная мудрость. Вчера перенёс операцию на правую ступню, которая оставила меня с дырками, по глубине сравнимыми с теми от пулевого ранения. И че? А не че 🤣 - это меня не остановит! Нужно поддержать форму за которой так долго охотился, да и не давать телу проиграть в битве за быстрое восстановление.
После треньки, вырубился на два часа глубокого сна, потому что жесть как устал. Тяжело очень весь вес перенести на одну ногу... И в некоторых упражнениях - это очень сильно сбило с толку. Так что устал как собака, но добиться своего - добился!
Есть люди которые живут с серьёзными проблемами со здоровьем, а все равно не сдаются и занимаются, так что у меня нет оправданий не делать этого.
Никогда не сдавайтесь, и идите только вперёд к цели - вот смысл жизни. 💪🏽
Time to be totally real with you guys .
As soon as I was old enough, my parents put me in dance. I also played some sports growing up. I was a cheerleader in high school. I was very active my entire life .
I made the competitive dance team in college (go bees 🐝) and I knew it was going to be hard physically but I had been dancing my whole life and been highly active so how bad could it be?! .
After 5 months of Team morning workouts, practices 4-5 nights a week and performances I was struggling. It was finally at one of our morning workouts when I fell to the ground on the track during our team mile when I knew something wasn’t right .
2 weeks later I found out I had athletic induced asthma. Of all the things to be bad at, I have to bad at breathing?! 😂 .
Being on the competitive dance team and having asthma was SO hard. I was constantly reaching for my inhaler and fighting to breathe during and after routines. But I fought through it for 2 years .
That brings me to today. Years later and I still can barely get through a workout. Before starting this program, I thought my only option for cardio was running miles.
I’m thankful for this program because it doesn’t make me hate working out but I DO still struggle. The struggle was REAL this morning. But I fought through it, finished it and I know that my lungs and I are stronger for it!
Another to add to #Triceps Day. Jeff, you never cease to amaze me sir!
• • • • •
If the “drag pushdown” wasn’t enough to light up that long head of your triceps, this barbell lift away will do the trick for sure! Set up as if you’re in a bent row position but put the bar behind the knees instead. From here, lock the elbows and lift the bar up and back. Not only will you feel an intense contraction on the inner upper arm but your traps will fire up too to drive and stabilize the movement. Throw in a static hold at the top of every contraction for that one final bit of discomfort! Remember, when you want to cause change you have to challenge yourself and of course, get comfortable being uncomfortable! #hypertrophy#triceps#ripped#trythis#traps#exercisedemo#squeeeeeze#noexcuses#jeffcavaliere#athleanx#teamathlean
The Web of Pain
Here’s a quick story about pain.
A client came to me and said, “I am having major neck and upper back pain. It is so bad I’m getting headaches. Can you help me?” She said she was crabby, exhausted, and in pain all the time. She wasn’t doing things with her friends because she couldn’t.
She had tried massage, stretching, exercise, hot baths, ice you name it. Nothing worked anymore.
She needed something different, so she came to me.
After a few treatments, she no longer walked like a robot and her demeanor had changed significantly.
Are you wondering what I did?
I used a tool that helps to manipulate fascia and it is great for pain relief.
What the heck is fascia?
Fascia is a thin sheath of fibrous tissue that surrounds our muscles, nerves and organs. It is a delicate system that looks similar to a spider web.
Now imagine a few of those very delicate spider web like fibers being stuck together.
These web-like stuck together fibers tend to get dense and hard. When they get dense and hard they don’t move very well and cause pain like headaches, piriformis syndrome, low back pain, and more.
Stuck is not good.
Stuck means that things are not moving as they should. Kind of like an internal traffic jam.
We want our fascia to be open, not stuck.
When it is open and juicy it gives the muscles, nerves and bones etc. more space to do their job.
The human body is incredibly adaptive. But adapting to pain can shape how we live and have long term consequences on our lives.
Chronic pain can affect every aspect of our life including relationships, employment and our ability to participate in normal activities.
We deserve to live as comfortably as possible, without chronic aches and pains. If you feel stuck in a web of pain and would like to know more about the type of fascia therapy I provide, message me and let’s talk.
Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. @devon33gales isn’t one of those people, are you?
Here’s a clip from a session with Coach Neko Freeman AKA @hulksm4sh 🙌🏽 It’s time to stop making excuses and make change.
