It is an amazing post work out snack.


It is full of goodies for your optimal health and fitness results.

It speeds up the recovery process and enables your body to build muscle mass.

Remember that it is extremely important to eat after your training, right after or 40 minutes tops should pass. An hour after your post work out snack you should get a full meal.


Health benefits of flax seeds:

Of all plants in the planet kingdom flax seeds have the highest level of omega 3, an essential fatty acid. Omega 3 and omega 6 are considered essential because the body cannot produce them.

Omega 3 is very important to athletes. Aside from its ability to reduce inflammation caused by movement, omega 3 plays an integral part in the metabolism of fat. A nutritional program consisting of at least 2 tbsp of flaxseeds daily will allow the body to burn body fat as fuel. This is important to anyone wanting to shed body fat, but it is of major importance to athletes who need to spare muscle glycogen. As the body becomes proficient at burning fat as fuel (by training and top quality nutrition) endurance dramatically improves.


To understand the significance of omega 3 to exercise, let’s compare two athletes, both at an equal level of fitness. One relies purely on his body’s ability to burn carbohydrates, while the other has fueled his body with high quality fats as well. The athlete who feeds his muscles only carbohydrates can store only enough muscle glycogen for about a 90 minutes workout. After that, he needs to ingest more or his performance will decline. On the other hand, the athlete who has incorporated omega 3 and omega 6 into his diet (and trained properly) will be able to draw from fat reserves. This means the athlete has a dual fuel source, lengthening the time it takes for muscle glycogen to be depleted while improving endurance – not to mention creating a leaner body.


Flax seeds are high in potassium, an integral electrolyte for active people, because it is in part responsible for smooth muscle contractions. The body loses potassium when it sweats, so this mineral must be replaced regularly to keep the body’s levels adequately stocked. Potassium also regulates fluid balance, helping the body keep hydrated.


Flax seeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber slows the release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream, helping control insulin levels and prolongs energy. Soluble fiber, when consumed, gives the body a sense of fullness, signaling its hunger mechanism to shut off. For this reason, people who are trying to lose weight should increase their consumption of soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber is important in terms of digestive system health. Insoluble fiber plays a cleansing role by insuring toxins doesn’t build up and spread into the bloodstream. Like hemp seeds, flaxseeds have anti-inflammatory properties, welcoming in any person’s life. It is a complete protein with all essential amino acids.


I suggest buying whole flax seeds, and grinding them in a coffee grinder. Because flax seeds are small with hard sells, they will pass through the system undigested if consumed whole. Grinding them exposes their oils and nutrient value so they can be effectively utilized by the body.

  • We all look and feel much better “in muscles”‼️ we are definitely built to use them 💪🏼 we literally wither away if we don’t. 
Building lean muscle mass is always the right choice: it elevates your metabolism and will burn your body fat for you.
Building lean muscle mass will make you strong and confident.
Building muscle mass will lower your biological age. Every year after 35 we actually lose muscle mass, if we don’t build it. Stress is also a big reason that we actually may lose muscle mass. Chronic and excessive cortisol elevation is the main reason for losing muscle, because it directly causes a breakdown of muscle tissue. It also slows down the muscle repair/rebuilding by inhibiting the immune system (which is the driver of muscle growth) and limits how much muscle you can carry by increasing myostatin, a protein that acts as the governor for how much muscle your body allows you to carry (more myostatin means less muscle). DM me or e-mail me at to get your meal plan and training program specifically calculated for your current state aiming straight towards your goal. The magic ingredient in any fitness/health plan is YOU, you are unique and should be treated as such

  • Do you want to build incredible glutes?
Then the benefits of Romanian deadlifts are priceless. This lift builds amazing glutes and hamstrings. It’s very beneficial for your lower back. It’s a high intensity compound exercise, which means it burns tons of calories for you too. It balances your quad and hip extractor muscle group. It creates great hip mobility. It places very little stress on your knees (excellent for athletes with knee problems). This lift is so great for glute and hamstrings, because it doesn’t involve the quads as much as all the other lifts. Most basic lifts are quad dominant, like squats, conventional deadlifts, leg press etc where as this lift goes directly into the back side of your body.

  • Build a strong physique 💯
1. Use whole body lifts. Get a hold on a bar and do Olympic lifts, power lifts, deadlifts in all variations, use your whole body. 
2. Stop doing only machines in the gym. Get to work, think of yourself as an athlete.
3. Think of the body as one piece. Most people are too much into muscle groups at the time, let’s see how they actually work together. 
4. Define your goal clearly 
5. Remember that you aim for micro trauma during training. In order to get stronger you gotta feed that process correctly by a specific designed meal plan. 
6. Growth takes place while you sleep. Healing recovery and repair is how you are able to continue to grow on top of your old growth, this only happens if you get that sleep in. 
7. Relax. Yes, your mind is a muscle too, you can train it to keep your cool focus, and you should, your results and life depends on it.

  • A little “single” dance I made this morning 🤟🏼💁‍♀️ stating that I am in an amazing relationship with myself (It is one of the most common questions I get, if I am single!).
I believe it’s paramount to create an awesome relationship with yourself. To get to know yourself. To choose you. In this way you will conquer your goals. You will fill yourself up with energy and joy, because you know what sets you on fire. You get to know what you want. You can define it and communicate it. 
Particularly as women and especially mothers, we often are there to serve others, to help our children and take a huge work load (it’s a 24/7 job to be a mom), let’s be honest. And in that we often forget ourselves, what we used to like, what we are about, our goals and passion. We even forget to take care of our health and become a version of ourselves which we hardly recognize. I have been there, hardly remembering which music I liked, hugely overweight and washed out as a personality (that was at least is it felt at times being a single mother to x 3 small kids). My point here is the better relationship you have with yourself the more you have to give. The happier you are. The better mother you will be. The more incredible partner you will be too if you find your match, if not that’s fine too. Don’t settle for less than you can be, don’t settle for dead-end relation-shits and things that just drain you. If you choose you, you might even be able to blow life right back into your old relationship again, because you come as who you truly are: your best version: on fire 🔥 #fit #fitness #onfire #ripped #shredded #leanmuscle #abs #selfcare #selflove #bestversionofyou #fitspo #goals #fitfam #personaltrainer #healthylifestyle #beyourself #chooseyou #health #fitmom
