Fam! I’m so excited to share that I’m the Health and Fitness Expert for Savvy, a lifestyle blog on Savings.com! And my first task was to search for my Top 20 picks of at-home equipment to help you reach your goals this year! Click the link below to see my top picks for your home gym, and catch some savings!

It was such a blast to suggest items that I have as staples for all my clients, and also discover some new ones as well! These are all items that I’ve hand selected and would use myself, plus they won’t break the bank!  That’s key. Haha my Mom would be so proud of the savings …

The biggest thing about shopping for home equipment is purchasing items you would actually use, and having them be multi-purpose to keep things interesting, but also save space at home! It’s not always about the hype of the fanciest equipment. We just need to find ways to move that we genuinely enjoy!

One of my picks was the good ol’ Stepper Box! Plus, I’ve got some moves to go with them! I’m excited to share more of my picks with you, and how I use them! Let’s stay creative, and MOVE.MOVE.MOVE. I got you ! 😜 Goals coming right up in the comfort of your own home!

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how amazing you are?! It’s so easy to look at everyone’s Instagram and other social media platforms and see their highlight reel and wonder if you’re enough or even doing enough. But the fact of the matter is, no one knows what’s going on behind the scenes, what’s going on in your day to day, what goals you have planted in your heart, and what you’re regularly processing mentally. You’re the only one who does! And that’s all that matters!

This is why the Self Love Challenge is so important to me. As we navigate this month, and our day to day, we have to recognize that the only thing that is constant is change. And it’s important to remember that you can choose how you move, and at what pace. The only way you should move is in a way that feels organic to you because you’re the one who is experiencing it. So if it’s improving your health, then take a look at the overall picture of your health, and pick one habit that will add value to your life…then go knock that habit out of the park! That’s all it takes! It takes the mindset of you recognizing right off the bat that YOU’RE ENOUGH, and that you get to decide how you want to move in your day to day! When you come from a place of love to make improvements or goals, it’s an entirely different experience, than coming from a place of lack. Don’t forget to be grateful about your starting point, but excited about where you see yourself going! YOU ARE LOVE! Don’t forget it!

As I continue to find different ways to move, I’m also becoming more aware of my body…where I feel strongest, where I lack range of motion, and experience tightness…and so on. My intention with my movements is to feel like I’m flowing with my body, and have a sense of release once I’m done. Repetition, care, and practice is what will allow me to improve.

And I want to encourage you to start thinking about improving your health and fitness in regards to improving your movement, not simply performing exercises. Our bodies are made to do so much more. By focusing on movement your body can function better as a whole, it will improve your day to day functions.

Here are some combinations I put together to challenge my stability, mobility, and strength.

Movements
Active Lat Stretch to Squat & Roller Shoulder Raise
Active Lat Stretch to Bear Stance Plank Reaches
Active Lat Stretch to Roller Push-Up
