“Your muscles are like rubber bands.”

“As women we are not going to get bulky, we don’t have the testosterone.” 


“Just because it is a kettlebell does not mean you are strength training.” 


“Inbalance are when your muscles are not equal in strength and length.” 


“Nobody wants to be a dental hunchback.”


“If you are having pain in your back, it could be coming from your knee or neck or elsewhere in your body.” 


“Uncomfortable is different from discomfort.” 


“Once you build muscle it is just about maintaining it.” 


“There is so much noise out there in the fitness industry, the portion of what is right is very small.”
