Get Out & Do More with Behavior Change Specialist Dominique Barnett
On Today’s episode, I speak with one of my clients I’m proud to call my friend, Dominique Barnett. Dominique recently attended our fall workshop this month and will be joining us on our Hawaiian Retreat in February 2020. This interview was originally supposed to be about her experience at our workshop, and it turned into a full blown discussion about personal development and growth. This was by far one of my most favorite episodes ever. We talk overthinking, self doubt, limiting beliefs, caring about others’ opinions, and why we care about coaching others to be their best selves. Highlights: • When you get out of your environment and what you've always known, you allow yourself to be free. • You are allowed to love yourself. • You'll never get these years back. • Sometimes when we censor our pride and happiness for fear of judgment, we end up envying others who are happy.

Knowing This Is The Secret To Life Mastery feat. Acrobat Leslie Munoz
If you’re listening to this on the day it’s released, Happy Halloween! On Today’s episode, I speak with my friend and fellow acrobat, Leslie Muñoz. We had this conversation to help you learn more about yourself.

Her incredible character and integrity shows in this short interview and we want you to finish this episode thinking about what you need to reintroduce or make sacred in your life to keep yourself performing at your highest potential.

Little Known Facts: My Conversation With Dr. Lina Cook
This week I'm turning things upside-down, and not just because our backflip workshop is just a couple weeks away! Because the brilliant and beautiful Dr. Lina Cook interviewed ME for this week's episode of the 10.0 Podcast! In the process, she uncovered a whole lot about how I got my start and why I created Train Like A Gymnast. *Spoiler Alert* there were some rocky times along the way. Tune in now to hear how you can learn from the struggles I faced in my gymnastics career and how you can cope if you ever experience something similar. I'm curious... have you encountered anything similar along your own journey with competitive athletics?

Accelerate Your Results By Asking For Help
[TRANSCRIPT] Accelerate Your Results By Asking For Help Today we’re going to discuss a topic that came up a lot from athletes on recent phone calls: asking for help. If you are a formerly-competitive athlete, you know this is not one of our fortes… "I got it, coach." "I can do it myself." "It's okay, I can figure it out."  "Don't worry, I've got it." "No, I'm good, thanks." Maybe when you were actually competitive, you were like me as a kid and didn’t need help because you let your talent carry you until you cracked. Sometimes we’re even taught that if we ask for help, it’s a sign of weakness. I decided to rally our Train Like A Gymnast coaches to discuss this topic as well as take a peek into their own personal experiences. You’ll get to hear from our operations manager, Claire and our Registered Dietician Nutritionist, Heather. Every week, the three of us have a team huddle meeting, and last night we talked about this topic after we got the business stuff sorted away. We'd love to hear what insights you have from this episode, email us at team@trainlikeagymnast.com.

Client Spotlight: Alexis Iglesias
[TRANSCRIPT] How You Know You Need To Update Your Life's Blueprint.  Today we’re going to dive into what a coaching call with me looks like with one of our VIP team members, Alexis Iglesias. You’re going to learn so much from HER call, you’re going to want one of your own! At first, on the surface, it looked like Alexis needed help with time management and finding a schedule that works for her, but after some digging, we discovered it stems from some unrealistic expectations she put on herself from an outdated blueprint. What's a blueprint you might be wondering? It's the rough plan or vision you have set for yourself. Sometimes it stays with us for years despite changes we go through in life. (Married at 24, kid at 25, making $100k by age 30, buy a house, etc) Then, when our lives don't match this blueprint, we get frustrated thinking about where we SHOULD be. But our expectations of ourselves are based on this outdated blueprint we created when we were maybe 16 or 21. There's nothing wrong with us, we simply need some updating to being fulfilled with where we are. When our blueprints are aligned with reality, we are fulfilled. Do YOU need to update your blueprint? We'd love to hear what insights you have, email us at team@trainlikeagymnast.com.
