Empower Through Strength
Strength is a word I am constantly using to describe Warrior wellness. It is an all-encompassing term and I am greedy about strength,
I want to be strong in mind, body, faith, friendships, and family. I want my external relationships and the relationship with myself to be strong and empowering.
My memoir was one of the most empowering moments in my life by giving me an outlet to discuss mental strength and resilience. Without my struggles, I would not have the experience and confidence in myself to thrive in life as I do today.
Physical strength is also important to me. I recently had my first baby boy, Magnus. My body has changed and so have my goals. Strength use to be about winning competitions, finishing first in every race, and letting the physical be a symbol of my self-worth.
With the new addition of my son, my goals have changed dramatically. Physical strength is an expression of my motherhood, ability to play, and experience life with Magnus. I do not want to be the strongest or fastest. I want to be the most present and capable to experience life to the fullest. I do not want to miss out on opportunities because my body will not allow it.
I was recently invited with Coach Anders Varner onto the Brute Strength Podcast to discuss strength training, longevity, and longevity.
