AMAZON STUFF: GYM EDITION
So, this is my third installment of STUFF I LOVE FROM AMAZON!!! Since most of the stuff I buy in general is FOR THE GYM, what better genre of merchandise to specialize in here ?!
I DEFINITELY HAVE TO START WITH THE LEGGINGS that set my facebook on FIRE when I posted the pix from a photoshoot ! Literally DOZENS of girls demanded to know what kind they were and where I bought them ! I have them in WINE and GREY, and they are only $17.99 !! amzn.to/2Xj71BJ
skin care from amazon....
Hi, guys!! I thought i would do a skincare specific "favorites" blog for you today! I have a TON of skin issues I am trying to deal with here !! A cleanser i ABSOLUTELY LOVE for getting rid of my blemishes and breakouts is this one ! amzn.to/2WGJ6MW with neem and tumeric ! When I discovered this stuff, I was having a really bad hormonal breakout and this stuff plus a cool masque I make using plain greek yogurt and this powder amzn.to/2XJHmzc wiped that shit right out!! Of course, I still get occasional (mostly PMS time) breakouts, but at least I have this remedy!!! ALSO , something that impacted my clogged pores and made my face much clearer and glowier was this glycolic acid peel! (definitely dilute with water and follow the directions so you don't burn your skin!!) amzn.to/2WFEvdV !
I am also a big fan of gadgets that MAY help me get some semi professional results at home, so I tried this high frequency facial device ! It has different attachments for electrocuting your zits as well as a comb-shaped one for helping to stimulate hair growth! I don't us this device as much anymore, but when i first got it, I religiously did my face and scalp DAILY for several months!!! I saw results, but it just became TOO MUCH to do every day! I'd suggest once a week to help make this workable into your normal skincare routine ! amzn.to/2WHbQp2 !
I have tried about 3978567568598090390 serums in the last few years! The one I currently use 2x a day contains vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to brighten my skin and help plump up my fine lines and wrinkles ! amzn.to/2WGKY8q !
And , finally, I just received this lovely little eye cream today, so I will have to let you know how it works in a few weeks!!! I was won over by the great reviews and the fact that it contains caffeine (which is supposed to tighten up those pesky eye bags!!! amzn.to/2WG9XZz I should also add, this came with a little paper including a website you can go to to get a free 2nd product ! ( I assume, in exchange for a good review , but I haven't looked at it yet!
SO, i am happy to announce that both of my FABULOUS LADY AMBASSADORS (jeanette and kristy) are making great progress on their fitness journeys !!!! Clothes are fitting better, booties are getting rounder, inches are being lost!!!! YAAAAAAAAAY! Most importantly, though, they are FEELING BETTER, getting stronger and healthier and are SO MOTIVATED to continue!!! Kristy sent me her fitindex stats and, along with having lost 4 inches in her measurements check up, she's lost close to 5lbs and bf% is headed down! WAHOOOOO!
Jeanette, who has only been training with me for a month now, is also seeing changes!!! Her clothes fit better and she's super committed to her hardcore training !!! Check out these booty gainzzzzzz!!!
obsessed with amazon!
I know I am not alone in my obsession of Amazon! I I am in the process of trying to figure out how to have my own FAVORITES page on Amazon, but for now, you can follow my links here so i can get some credit for all my suggestions i am always giving everyone on my youtube vlogs! Here are a few things I have been talking about for MONTHS now (without sponsorship, i may add !)
The first product is the self tanner i have been obsessively coating my body with for a few wks now! MINETAN COFFEE (super dark ) amzn.to/2MBZKJb one hour express tan with a coconut water base ! I am really loving the color on me (and i am originally SUPER WHITE!)...the one thing is, as the tan develops, so does that self tanner smell. It's tolerable, but I'd prefer it to smell a little lighter.... The mit i ordered to apply it is : amzn.to/2X3JVic
The second product I tell all my friends and clients about is my sweatbelt and sweat-inducing cream fatburner! BELT: amzn.to/31pMGK8 and the cream that goes with it : amzn.to/31kJ0JI ! I am super obsessed with this right now! I saw a huge difference in my waistline after using this even just a few times! I also got this cream/gel and it worked well too, but it went faster.... amzn.to/2WsMW7I
One supplement I alllllways use (and this specific one also includes Vitamin C, which helps amplify the effects of collagen ) is : amzn.to/2KOdQVt I add my collagen into my jug (which can be found here : amzn.to/2KAlgeK LOVE THIS JUG!!!) that also includes BCAAs (current fave is : amzn.to/2WAx6fX peach mango flavor ! Another one of my faves is : amzn.to/31oOOC0 Man sports grape bubble gum ! YUMMM!
If you guys enjoyed my fave things blog page, please comment so i know and i will keep doing them !:)
JUNE BRINGS NEW BEGNNINGS!!
Hey, guys!!! I am just going to officially announce my 2 new ambassadors here on beautifulmuscle.com !!! THANKS FOR BEING BAD ASSES, Jeanette Schneider and Kristina Ralston ! These 2 have agreed to let me take their before/after pix and let my followers join in to their fitness journey and watch their progress !! They are going to do check ins with me on social media and star in my vlogs! In exchange for all that, i am going to feature them on my socials, get them free beautifulmuscle swag, and hook them up with discounted training sessions!!!
I decided to do this little ambassador thing because i really never did BEFORE/AFTER shots of my clients before (for some unknown reason), and i have several clients that don't really want their pix taken while working out, or their stats shared with the world and i really need to have client testimonials and whatnot to help me promote my business! I figured, why not throw it out there and see who would be interested in being walking billboards for my brand and these two immediately stepped up to the plate! Both of the are extremely motivated, have goals, were athletes at one time, and they seem to actually LIKE the pix and vids I am always taking ! SO it all worked out great! This is not to say that my clients who are not "ambassadors" aren't important or unmotivated!! NOT AT ALL! I love each and every client I have the privilege of working with and i am putting the SAME amount of time and energy into helping them reach their goals!!! I have recently also started a little beautifulmuscle training group on facebook to help all my clients get to know each other and form a little community of bad asses to encourage and empower each other!!!
My next order of business that I have set into place starting June 1 is MONTHLY BILLING! New clients will now go on an auto-pay monthly plan! I SHOULD have done this LONG ago because i have spent YEARS of inconsistency with clients pushing off paying me for sessions or dropping off the face of the earth when they promised to continue training after their session packages were done. This left me in the lurch, unsure of when I'd be making money and often times made it hard for me to pay my bills and make plans to do things because I never can be 100% sure that I will be making the money I expect to be making ! This way, I can keep it consistent for me and clients can just roll it up into their monthly budget plans! I'd like to ask for a 6 month commitment to training with me (because most people's goals will take at least that long to reach), but I understand this may not be affordable to everyone for the long term! I also understand that things happen and life doesn't always go as planned, so I am making it easy to just give me a 30 day heads up when you need to stop, and I will stop your monthly billing !
LASTLY, my Bonfire campaign shirts have arrived !!! I LOVVVVE mine and i hope to see you all tagging me in photos of you rockin your beautifulmuscle skull shirts!!!!!
STAY BAD ASS, homies !!!! xo
...Usually, right after a campaign ends, a ton of people will ask me about getting a tshirt or a hoodie!! LOL Well, this most recent campaign-- which has the MOST choices (of colors and styles) of any of my previous campaigns ! AND IT ENDS BY 10 PM TONIGHT!!! SO, if you think you may want a sweet beautifulmuscle skull shirt (unisex tee, v neck, women's slimfit, or the awesome, flowy women's tank), get your order in ASAP! HERE IS THE LINK!!! LOTS OF COLORS available !!!!!:) ALSO: when you get your shirts, PLEASE tag me in your photos so i can see how RAD you look in them!!!!!
THANKS so much for your support!!!
