YOU ARE FIERCE…make your move!

You Have NO Idea…

Birthday Ride 2015It’s MY Birthday!

Today is my 37th birthday and I feel like the Grinch. Not the crankypants one, the one at the end of the story who’s small heart grows 3 sizes! I’m overwhelmed by the love I feel today. “You have NO idea” how grateful I feel. In this age of social media when we get distracted by what’s happening online instead of being present in the moment…today I find it a blessing to connect with loved ones and all of the “blasts from the past” I’ve received messages from.

Live Your Dream

Sometimes I feel like I’m dreaming my life, it’s SO great! I was telling my friend yesterday that when I was little I would watch (and mimic) Gilad, Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons and dream of being them. His response was, “You kind of are.” I realized…I kinda am. I want to help as many people as possible to be their best. Year after year I set my bar higher and higher to be better and stronger not only for me, but as an example for others. I’m real, I know this sh!t can be challenging sometimes, but that’s what makes it awesome. When you get through the crappy, really hard parts and realize, “Damn I’m strong!” That’s what GETting FIERCE is all about.

HEARTLove Now

I can’t tell you what a great birthday weekend it’s been. Yesterday I celebrated with 4 workouts, 2 of my own and 2 I taught. After my final class I was brought a chia pudding with a candle (SWERVEfounders you know me so well) and I teared up. In that moment I realized that there’s not ONE particular special someone in my life at this moment there are LOADS of special someones. I have so much love around me I feel humbled, honored and overjoyed to serve you. My tears were me realizing just how grateful I am for what I do and for all of the wonderful people around me!

XXX

 

It is a triple x of love and kisses. I wasgoing to just write a thanks for the birthday wishes post on Facebook, but in true “Dyan Form” I have lots to say that would be too much for a single post. I want to thank everyone who has been a part of my world in the past for getting me where I need to be. Those who have encouraged me, told me no, broken my heart, picked me up, told me I could when I thought I couldn’t. All of you have helped me become who I am today.

No matter where you are in your life now, remember it’s not forever. It can all shift in a moment and it starts with a single thought. Make it BIG, make it FIERCE. Make it Happen! It’s your birthday when you choose a new beginning. I’m gifting you on my birthday to make it YOURS as well. Live YOUR DREAM!

I Wanna See You This Week!

YOU ARE FIERCE!

IT’S 2015 GAME TIME

WE’VE GOTTA GET GOALS

If you haven’t read my “story” I was 180+lbs post college. My journey has brought me to where I am now, a 36 year old fitness professional in NYC, the healthiest I’ve ever been. Now it’s time to take it to the next level. I always have excuses for why I’m not where I want to be physically, “I’m fit enough” “This is as good as it gets”.  I’ve decided that there are no more excuses. It’s time to put up and (no or, it’s not an option) shut up.

GET HUNGRY

One of the items on my “bucket list” has always been to compete in a fitness competition. It’s official I’ve signed up for a bikini fitness competition (for those who think I’m tryin’ to look like Arnold check out the photo above) on April 18th 2015. I’m totally pumped. It feels great to have a goal and get hungry for something I’m committed to, literally and figuratively. I’ve hired a nutritionist who specializes in competitions like these, a trainer (yes, I need one too) to get me there and a coach to take me through the posing, shaving, tanning all all the other crazy details that I’ll need to know for THE day. I’m in it to win it, my friends and I’m HUNGRY to win!

WHACHU WANT?

It’s your time to ask yourself, “How am I gonna GET FIERCE this year?” It doesn’t need to be your body, it can be any aspect of your life, but now’s your time to commit to something that’s uncomfortable, that’s challenging and something that you’ve always wanted. Stop waiting, make a plan and attack it.

If fitness is your goal, I gotchu covered! Below is my schedule for the week and I’m PUMPED to see you in classes. GAME ON!

YOU ARE FIERCE!

PRAISE YOU (or ME)…Like I Should!

WERQ ITSELF PIMPIN’

I don’t speak enough about myself in my life. My blog is my space to share with you what I’m thinking, feeling, as well new things I’m doing in the arena of health and fitness. I was approached by a writer for FITMAPPED to be interviewed for one of their blogs. This is after being featured in an article in Well + Good last week. I realized that I’m so unwilling to share about my successes that I don’t even have a PRESS page on my OWN WEBSITE! Hello, that says something.

IF YOU BUILD IT, IT WILL COME!

I FINALLY created my PRESS PAGE. You can see all that I’ve done. I’m a top fitness instructor in New York City and despite my education in athletic training, I’ve only been working full time in the industry for 4 years. This is my life’s passion and I know it’s what I’ve come to do. I never thought that sharing my health and weight loss story would shift so many lives and inspire others to share their stories, but it has. I get emails daily asking how I did it, what was my moment and asking for help. My clients have lost thousands of pounds and it all began when I opened up and was willing to share my own story.

YOU ARE THE EXAMPLE

I encourage you that NO MATTER WHAT you’re going through; a break up, a medical issue,   challenges in your job, weight loss to share your story. It will not only free you from the “you’re the only one” feeling to perhaps shifting you to being someone’s hero. YOU my friends have a story to share. What’s your story? I invite you to share it with me below or email it on over!
