By day, I am mommy to Quinn and an online fitness coach (Fit Mommacademy) for women who want to take their basic fitness knowledge to the next level.  I love working with moms, too!  If you are a chick that wants to be a little more badass and feel more comfortable in the gym, build some muscle, look leaner, then you’re my girl!

I really love educating women about nutrition and busting the myths of the fitness industry. (…no, you can’t spot reduce fat and yes, carbs are okay before bed, squats won’t build your butt…)

{Where it started for me}

I was a semi-fit girl who did mostly home workouts (Beachbody) and ate “clean” but never really saw the changes I wanted to see in my body.  I did a lot of cardio, wasn’t sure of how to lift, had zero understanding of macros and then as a new mom, I struggled to make myself a priority.

I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and hired a coach.  14 ways competing transformed me beyond my physique

I learned how to train and understand mind muscle connection > lifting heavy without form.  I learned about nutrition and macros.  I learned about mindset and persevering when things get uncomfortable.  I learned how to balance it all; meal prep, family, training, etc.  I also learned how to deal with a reverse diet and going from being “stage lean” to normal human as well as body dysmorphia.

I went on to compete nationally and placed in the top 10!

I surpassed what I thought I could ever do and saw unlimited potential in myself.

Through all of this, I learned how to empower women.  We DESERVE to feel confident and strong!

2 Reasons You Shouldn't Get Implants + Why I Decided They Are Right For Me #FirstLoveYourselfMy belief is that every mom deserves to make herself a priority even though it sometimes feels selfish.  Motherhood is a full time job, but a healthy and happy mom can give so much more to her family.

I want my blog to be a place that women can go to learn about fitness, healthy living tips, macro hack recipes, and self love.

I love making videos, ebooks and printables or other helpful tools that help you unleash your inner badass.  I want your life to have less stress and more success with your fitness goals.

Since starting my blog, I have loved sharing my life and special moments, connecting with other women, and being inspired by them as well!  One thing I have learned is that friendships can be made with people you haven’t met in person!  I am grateful for those of you who I have connected with and am thrilled you have found your place here on Variety by Vashti.

So tell me a little about you!
