Ms. Bikini Universe Pro Paine4Gains Fitness shows us the reality and the struggle of squeezing in workouts during a busy day! Alex mentions that she finds herself working out late at night, but it's all worth it!
Alex shares, "Because when you have a 60 hr workweek, are taking classes, and are trying to run a business you sometimes have to work out late...because at 5 weeks or is time to grind!!! Getting after it tonight at the home gym! Now to finish up my teaching philosophy paper before tomorrow morning! ...success takes work!!"
2016 Model Universe Champion Bree'Anna Lucero says, "Believe in yourself and you will be UNSTOPPABLE
The confidence in believing you have no boundaries in achieving anything you want to in life is so vital.
Our minds are so powerful!
What keeps my confidence high in my journey is not knowing the exact direction I am going but knowing who is has my life already mapped out. God had my life planned out for me before I was born and I look forward to the adventure in hand. Keep your Faith focused and your imagination/dreams limitless."

2017 Model California Champion Victoria Schexnayder says, "Been out of the gym for months and taking a break from the grind but guess what I'm back at it again & I'm coming back stronger than ever despite having to make modifications due to my back injury that's not stopping me from being a pro!"
Ms. Bikini Universe Pro Kenya Cooper asks, "Are you ready for summer? Because I am! I'm more motivated than ever! I'm enjoying the process and progress. I send all my love and a huge hug to you all and encourage you to keep fighting and meet all your goals!"
Physique Pro Lauren Austin shares, "I am Lauren Austin, Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist, and I am Self-Built! I am passionate about my job and here's why....
Not all of us were born with a perfect body; what we see on a daily basis in magazines or on Instagram may make us self conscious or insecure with the way we look. But I believe if you're not born with it, then you have to build it! Build the body that you feel strong, confident and sexy in! You should never give-a-shit about what people may think of you. I love helping people build the bodies they want and help them to gain the confidence everyone needs to get through life happy and healthy! Hope you have a great day!"

I will also write on the blog, more about, what they meant to me these months, how I felt physically and physically, but especially, to share my experience, because every task has its story.
Australian Fitness Model Naomi Luck says, "LADIES LIFT YOUR WEIGHTS
Strength training, builds lean muscle that burns calories at a higher rate even while you are resting.
You might technically burn fewer calories during a 60 minute strength training routine than you do running for an hour, BUT the lean muscle that you build from heavy strength training, is going to get you a higher net energy expenditure, because of the elevated after burn that lasts up to 24-48 hours post training. Meaning your body burns fat faster at rest!!
You are not going to get massive lifting weights! That is a whole other argument. You ARE however going to reshape your body, and find it easier to stay lean because your body burns through calories faster than someone who sticks to just cardio for exercise.
This being said- you still need to push past your comfort zone and LIFT HEAVY WEIGHT! If you are un-sure ASK someone to help you or hire a Trainer like myself, here in this pic, that actually knows how to lift, just ask them what a low bar back squat is... if they don't know...walk away. If they put you on a 1000 calorie diet...run away! "
Let's wake up with morning stretches with Former Ms. Bikini Britain Champion and Fit mom Emma Louise Burrows!
For today's motivation, Emma says, "Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you. It’s what makes you individual and the imperfections you have, that is most beautiful about you. When you are surrounded by people who appreciate those things and love you for them then you know you are surrounded by true love."
