Do you still look pregnant months or years after having your baby? Do you have lower back pain? . 👉🏻You might have ab separation or Diastasis recti like my client @grace.johnson1289 had. She healed her separation to a 1 finger gap which is considered normal. I am so happy for you Grace and proud of your hard work momma.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻Thank you for letting me share your journey so that it can help inspire other women to see what is possible when they are given the right tools. . . She used my 10 week ab program that is good for anyone who has had a baby even if you don’t have #diastasisrecti I have had men use my program to heal their DR. My program helps you restrengthen your core from the inside out and doesn’t not use traditional ab exercises that can make DR worse. Have questions?

People ask me from time to time why I coach on top of being a full time working mommy...and the answer for me is simple...coaching fills a part of my cup that other endeavors don’t. . What’s filling your cup?!
The truth is, I don't work upper body nearly enough as I should. I always hated my upper body so to fix the problem I went heavy on my legs to balance out my physique. I do lightweight with more reps for my upper body. Good luck and I hope this helps! #upperbodyworkout #absworkout #bicepsworkout #gymmotivation #girlswholift #gainingweightiscool #fitfam #grind #momswholift #absafterbabies #buildabody #nevergiveup #bodygoals #bodybuilding
Last day of spring break!! That went by way too fast! And my house is a wreck!! But it’s ok bc I’ll have plenty of time to clean it up when all my kids are back in school next week. Just trying to embrace the now...which is hard for me when things aren’t clean and organized😬any other mamas out there feel this way too? O and Happy #flexfriday
Sure. I've been made fun of. Could be happening right now. 🤷🏻♀️ . . The old Leah would have let that eat her up all day. Worry about what was said. Or what someone thought about my daily fitness and drive. 🤦🏻♀️ . . Today's Leah, is learning to let that go.🙌🏻 . . Someone else's opinion of me, is none of my business. 💁🏻♀️ So why let that dampen my sparkle? ✨ . . If sharing my journey and story helps ONE person every month focus on their health too; than I'll take every bit of ridicule that comes with that. 😉 I will fearlessly share because this is changing lives. I get to witness their success and watch other flourish too! 👯👯 Happy Fitness Friday Friends! 💪🏻 ❤️, LNW
You know what is frustrating??? One day I’ll clearly have abs and the next day I’ll have abs if I squint hard enough 🤣. It will take me weeks to finally get my core looking right and all of 24 hrs for it disappear 🙄. But honestly at the end of the day I know it’s all about what you eat. I can definitely tell how I am doing with my daily nutrition just by looking at my core in the mirror. You may be able to hide it everywhere else but your core will tell all your nutritional secrets!!! 🤭 || #absaremadeinthekitchen #workingoffthisbloat #wherearemyabs #ketolifestylechange
Boss Babe Tabata (High Intensity Interval Training) 💪🏻💪🏻 This type of workout will continue to BURN FAT for hours AFTER your workout. . . There is something about tire flipping that makes me feel like a bada$$🤷♀️ My gym recently installed this tire thing and it makes me happy. . . 🏃♀️How to do it: do each exercise for 20 secs then take a 10 sec rest. Repeat the series 8 times for a fat burning tabata workout that works your entire body and makes you feel like a boss babe afterwards.💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 .

The most important factor that determines if you’ll stick to a fitness routine is if you think you can. If you don’t believe you’ll succeed, why would you put yourself through all that work? That’s why it’s so important that we all define what success in a fitness program is for each one of us, and set small, specific, doable goals that’ll make us feel good about how we’re progressing & inspire us to keep going. Let me help you get started before the Summer. My 'Sweat Sisters' Beach-Ready Body Challenge starts 4-1. Msg me or sign up at the Y. 2 groups available.

New challenges stimulates and motivate me. I don't like doing easy things; they bore me. 🤷🏻♀️ Anyone else? . . Adding steps to this #riptrainer routine took it to the next level for me. It not only stimulated me physically, but mentally as well. Love it when that happens! Gonna keep working on it till it gets easier. . . . . . #trxtraining #trxriptrainer #riptrainer #fitmomlife #fitmomsofig #fitmomgoals #fitafterkids #fitafterbaby #fitafterbabies #fitmomjourney #momfluencer #socalmoms #socalmom #fitmomsinspire #fitmomgoals #stronglikemom #absafterbaby #absafterbabies

I need this daily reminder more today than I did in the beginning of my fitness/ health journey. . . Each day that passes doesn’t get easier. The reasons to not show up for yourself still show themselves. The kids need you, you didn’t sleep well, you need more time in a day, you don’t see family enough, you don’t have extra time, you aren’t seeing the scale move, you just don’t know if you can do anything extra today. . . We are moms, we are busy women, we are hurting, we are tired, we all have excuses but if we have a goal that we are striving to reach and a plan to get us there then there is no question about why we get up and do what others put off for another day. The goal is what gets you started but the plan is what makes you show up each and every day. What are your health goals? Are you allowing them to just stay a dream? I’m hosting a 21 day health and fitness virtual BOOTCAMP that will help you start making those dreams a reality. Do you want in? (Drop a comment below)
Today’s workout was one for the books. I gave it my all way later than I wanted to but I got it in and pushed to the limits. I am amazed at what I accomplished today and what my body is capable of. . . During the first round of thesis program I could barely complete this days workout. I remember pausing and stopping so many times and wanting to quit but this time around I didn’t want to quit. However I did hit pause a couple of times. 😂 but no body is perfect. . . In a week I have a new round and group of girls starting this transformation program with me. I am excited for them to start their journey and feel accomplished each day. Who knew that a 20 minute workout could be so life changing? Are you ready to believe in yourself and change your lifestyle? I have 2 spots left so message me and let’s see if this will work for you
When someone tells you you can’t do it....⠀ ⠀ Do it twice.⠀ Take pictures. ⠀ And keep that shit up! ⠀ ⠀ LOVING all the selfies the gals in my bootcamp are confidently posting! Shoot me a message if you’re ready to join us!
Who says your core won’t be the same after a c section (or 2)🤰🏼?! It’s better 😱!👇🏼 • * I work out for 30 minutes in my living room 🤸🏽♀️. * I eat a specific meal plan of balanced macronutrients that fuel my body 🥦🍎🍞🍳. * I avoid processed sugar 🚫 (that is what is killing America). * I get up before everyone else to do something good for myself, set the tone for my day and set a good example for my boys ⏰. * I have made this a sustainable lifestyle 🤗 (you have to find what works for you)! • ✖️ I do not spend hours at the gym. ✖️ I do not cut calories or restrict my body in any way. ✖️ I do not make excuses. ✖️ I do not diet. ✖️ I do not eliminate food groups (carbs or fats). And the RESULTS have been AMAZING!💃. • I sleep better 😴, I have more energy than I did before I had kids, I am less anxious, and I am more confident than I have ever been. 💁🏽♀️
❓WHAT WOULD YOU ADD TO THIS LIST❓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I was like, “man it sure feels like Monday.” Then I realized, it’s Tuesday. 🙌🏼 . One thing I try to actively practice is NOT wishing life away. I realized through some personal development that while always having goals and dreams is healthy, it’s NOT healthy to never be satisfied or happy with RIGHT NOW. . Be happy with today, WHILE working for tomorrow, because your happiness shouldn’t be dependent on reaching this or that goal, rather it is your happiness that will HELP you reach your future goals.🌈
✨EEEKKKKK! Big News✨ . . Some of you already know that we adopted two adorable #rescuekittens this weekend 🐾 BUT did you know that I am in the process of becoming a Certified Master Coach for the nutrition system that has truly CHANGED my life⁉️ . This program is SO MUCH MORE than just little portion control containers for your food (which is what what I used to think) and is designed to help you work through common pitfalls like eating out, emotional eating and sugar addiction! . Because this is a LIFESTYLE (NOT A FAD DIET), there is NO cutting foods or food groups - 🧁🍷🥡 - instead, it is an approach to help you develop sustainable, BALANCED nutrition habits that fuel your body with the right amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats (aka macronutrients) regardless of whether you want to exercise or not, lose weight or not, build muscle, etc.! You choose the right approach for your needs so that you FEEL great while pursuing your own personal health goals. . I am looking for 15 participants to JOIN ME in a PRIVATE TEST GROUP to get started with this amazing program for 30 days. Exercise is optional so if you don't want to work out, are working out at your local gym, that's okay! . PARTICIPANTS GET: ⭐️Lifetime access to the course, 35+ SHORT videos and a workbook. ⭐️A daily log book to help you stay on track and learn how YOUR BODY reacts to certain foods. ⭐️PDF copies of program materials for future use. ⭐️A set of portion control containers. ⭐️A month's supply of superfood shakes. ⭐️Hundreds of recipes are included with this program and the digital cookbook is consistenly being updated with NEW recipes! ⭐️75 Healthy Lunch Ideas for Kiddos (a digital PDF). ⭐️Access to the program and nutrition tracking tools through a FREE app on your mobile device. ⭐️1:1 coaching with ME to help support and guide you along the way! . ❗️BONUS❗️You’ll get VIP access to 2 new fitness programs being filmed in real time, starting April 1st! . . So if any of this speaks to you or sounds like something you would like to participate in, send me a direct message or drop an emoji below and I’ll be in touch ASAP!
I love what this workout is doing for my shoulders and cannot wait to show them off this summer!

Fitness/Personal Trainer post - Postpartum body update: Pic on the left was January 1st and pic on the right was yesterday - 11 weeks difference. It does take hard work, commitment, time, patience.. but for me it’s a career as well as a passion. I enjoy it and I love the process. It’s taken me many years of attempts and failures to find what works for me, and what works for me may not be the most effective routine for you. It’s always a case of trial and error and finding the system (of eating and training) that you can adhere to best long term. I eat a mostly clean diet, protein with every meal, lowered carbs late in the day and I drink lots of water. I tend not to eat between the hours of 6pm and 8am (intermittent fasting) as I find a) this stops me grazing on snacks at night and b) my digestive system seems to benefit from a break from food. I currently train between 3 and 6 days a week. Cardio: HIIT, plyometrics and steady state + weights/resistance. Looking back I can see that my biggest body changes after Sonny happened between 6 and 8 months postpartum and that certainly seems to be true again this time. I was always sitting at a size 14 in clothes (uk) however I’m now mostly a 10, sometimes a 12 on bottom, 8-10 on top. You can absolutely make huge changes to your figure and body composition at any age and certainly after children if you want to. This is me at 38 yrs old , 8 months after my second baby. #transformationtuesday . . . . #fitnessmum #personaltrainer #fitnessinspiration #weightlossjourney #postpartumjourney #postnatalexercise #postnatalfitness #certifiedpt #fitsporation #fitmums #mumoftwo #7monthspostpartum #fitlifestyle #flblog #fitmotivation #fitnesslife #weightsandcardio #hiittraining #fitnessinspo #summershreds #leangains #weightloss #yoga #fitnessprogress #fitblog #2under3 #motivation💪 #absafterbabies #strongnotskinny
Today was the first time in 3 years that I could dust of my skipping rope. 4 months post op and I’m skipping again. I can not wait to see my fitness level in 6 weeks - 6 months - years time. My heart is happy, best part is that my kids are loving the new fit - trying to get stronger version!!!

Eat to fuel your body. . . My wonderful hubby tried out the new #traegersmoker last night and we are in love. It’s just what I needed to get my meal plan back on track. Yes I’ve been on the struggle bus when it comes to nutrition but mainly because I haven’t been eating enough to fuel my body. My program comes with everything you need to learn how to fuel your body correctly from a sample menu, grocery list, measuring cups, and 1 meal a day is completely provided. Although sometimes mom life keeps me from eating all of my meals and from wanting to cook. But now that this little gem of a #traegergrills is ready to go watch out! Nothing is better than #smokedmeats when your coming out of the winter blues. Now to get my body swimsuit ready for #cruise2019
❤️ ABS 🔥🔥🔥🔥💚
It’s that daily (mostly weekend) struggle between wanting abs and also wanting burgers, popcorn & twizzlers. 🍔🍿❤️ . Not gonna sugar coat it (or maybe I am)...life without those things is not a life I’m interested in living. 😜👎🏼 . I’ve learned that as long as my good choices outweigh my shitty ones..I’m good. And if I move my body with intention each day...I can essentially have it all! Score!!! 🙌🏻🎉 . Find YOUR sweet spot. It’s gonna look a tad different for everyone..there’s no one-size-fits-all! Healthy isn’t a pant size or a silly number on a scale. It’s a mindset and a feeling. Like “hello, I’m a badass & I feel amazing!” 👊🏼🤩 . I hope you have it. But if you don’t, I’m here to help. 😘 Our upgraded nutrition fix program has officially launched. Time to regain control of what you’re eating, peeps!
Pumped to be getting the work in daily AND FINALLY focusing more on nutrition and a balanced healthy diet.🙌🏼 . I’ve been studying & following this macro nutrient focused guide for one full week now - I’m down 2 lbs and feeling energized, focused & mentally sharp. Did you know that your nutrition affects EVERYTHING about you?! Your attitude, sleep patterns, energy - it’s ALL a result of what you put into your body - your FUEL. . Your body is your vehicle through life & what you eat + drink is your fuel - makes sense, right? If you fuel your car with bad gas, does it run well or as long as it could? Nope. Same deal with your body! 🚘 . I’ve got a great crew of girls working with me and we are ALL learning SO much together, working & focusing and crushing goals! Join us today & reach yours!
Oh my heart! . . These kids are killing me with their cuteness y’all. Drake has those lady killer eyes. He is the full package. This baby is one that if you didn’t have any other children and had him then you would want more because he is the best ever. #helloblueeyes #gerberphotosearch2019 #6monthsold #growingupwithsiblings #mykidsarethebest #mommysworld #boymomma
