Yup! This happened earlier today on my way to CR in Tacoma. I met this little fireball @sarbear988 while I was about to get into #buildmemode #gym #girlswithmuscle #buildingmybestme #metabolicfitness #metabolicfitnesscoach #metabolicmakeover #itsallaboutenergy #bodybuilder #naturalbodybuilder

After 10 days of low intensity recovery and healing, I finally got an intense, sweaty AM cardio session this morning. The heart-pounding action set me up for the rest of an amazing and blessed day! What a difference 30 minutes can make. #prepmode #prepmodevideos #contestprep #buildingmybestme #cardio #cardiodone #fitfam #fitspro #bodybuilding #spin #cycling #fit #fitness #metabolicfitness @physiquesnw #physiquesnw @natural_bb #natural_bb (at www.marlinavelasco.com)

Just got done with Cody’s posing routine choreography at downtown #Seattle #VisionQuest. Must prospect precious cargo while driving to Dr. Monti’s clinic (@drdirtrider) for treatment #11weeksout #gallonjug #gallonwater #eatclean #foodisfuel #buildingmybestme #contestprep #bodybuilder #metabolicfitness @elitesportsandspine (at Vision Quest Sport and Fitness)

Take your own advice…

When I hurt my neck and RIGHT side, obviously it was not my goal to create injury symmetry, but the January 20th fender-bender in i5 rush-hour caused strains resulting in muscle adhesions opposite the 2009 set back. Dr. Monti (@drdirtrider) reassured me during my treatment session this week, that I can resume my training protocols. He said the same thing last week, but clearly my PTSD got the better of me.

So, it’s time for me to reclaim the CHAMPION MINDSET that I model and teach my metabolic fitness clients and competitive physique athletes!

FEAR (false evidence appearing real), stops us from doing what we already know to do. One of my clients today said, “I’ve been beat-up and pushed to my limits by my coaches. I know that I always get a better workout when someone is screaming at me to go harder.” I asked Dr. Monti today, to restate aloud what I already knew my spirit, mind, body, and professional experience was screaming at me to do: “YOU’RE OK! GO FOR IT! TRAIN! LIFT!” Not his exact words, but you get the idea…#chiropractic #whatshoulderinjury ##buildingmybestme #riprepairrebuild #buildingmybestme #bodybuilder #naturalbodybuilder #metabolicfitness #metabolicmakeover #itsallaboutenergy (at Elite Sports and Spine)

A Seven-Year-Champion:
Championship events, trophies, wearing medals, and Super Bowl rings in the world of athletics, are what competitors train for their entire lives. If you’re not an athlete competing on the ball field, what “events” in your life give you opportunities to win?

We’ve played our role as #12thMan in an amazing journey toward the biggest victory Seattle’s sports enthusiasts have ever experienced. 700+ thousand die-hard and even fair-weather fans (me), showed up in blue and bright green gear at a #SuperBowlVictoryParade to celebrate the big win downtown #Seattle this Wednesday. The energy at 4th and Wall could light-up a small state for a few hours. SEEAA-HAAWKS!

Plug-in to a source greater than your own power. Start a franchise, develop a solid program (ripped that from Fox News reporter who described Coach Pete Carroll’s approach), and build CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS. Partner with other champions, connect with visionaries, social change agents, unite for a cause bigger than you, educate servant-leaders, and empower those want to build generational legacy. Let’s all rally around a cause, a mission! Are you in? I’m in! All in! #MetabolicFitnessCoach #MetabolicMakeover #ItsAllAboutEnergy #MuscleIsMagic #Muscle #WholeNewBody #Competitor #Bodybuilder #BuildingMyBestMe

This week, I was blessed and honored to celebrate seven years of healing, miraculous recovery, and #metabolicfitness, and partnership with health and wellness #champions in my community. @mitchelebeaver and I lead #Tabata (HITT) during the stretch break at Friday’s #DesignYourLife #Transformation themed event. Yay us! (at www.marlinavelasco.com)

I’ve got the rest of today to pack-in #nutrientdense #macros & #micros for #buildingmybestme #stayingonprogram #stillinprepmode #contestprep #univeraxtra #metabolicmakeover #reboot #foodisfuel #foodie #naturalbodybuilder #eatcleantrainsmartdeepsleep #cleantobelean #fit #fitnlean #letsdothis AGAIN (at www.marlinavelasco.com)

Business commitments & opportunities as social change agent to make positive impact on obesity epidemic, could have been my reasons to skip it today, but lying to myself hurts my spirit more than the price of relentless pursuit of excellence so I used my 20 min before #CR #StepStudy class to #buildingmybestme & #geterdone!

Round2⃣#HITT #chestandtriceps #training: ➡Push-Offs 15, 20, 25, 20 ➡Tricep Dips 15, 20, 25, 20 ➡Flower Box Jumps 1 min x4 as active rest period between 4 super sets.

While on Round 2 cardio, zig-zag route to avoid coughing up a lung from airborne toxins, dodge cars as driver’s eyes are focused on mobile device versus speed-walkers crossing, hurdle over cute kids learning to ride a two-wheeler, and implementing evasive maneuver around star-crossed lovers…Oooh! Drum circle! #fitgirlproblems #fit #fitness #cardio #blessedbecauseican #movetobefit #buildingmybestme (at Greenlake Washington)

Dalise and I decided that starting a #tennisskirt #fashiontrend in the gym, especially while #lifting in #weightroom is a great idea, but it will take time to catch on. This is an actual #Fila #tennis purposed #pleatedskirt since I’m officially in a #mixdoubles #team #Target has cute #fitness #skorts for general use under $20 #spin #bike #fastingcardio #cardiodone #iworkoutbecauseican #buildingmybestme #physiquesnw @physiquesnw #physiquesinskirts #bodybuilding #8weeksout #bikinicompetitor (at LA Fitness)

Fasting #chestandtriceps plus #spin!!! Remember the new pre-owned #cyclingkicks? Today, I wanted to give my knees a break from high impact daily #fastingcardio #running; so headed to #LAfitness #shoreline, forgot my multitool to adjust cleat interface of #cycling shoe sole. My knees like a slightly supinated pedaling position; more so on right side. That nice mechanic fixing recumbent #bike in my #instapic, Henry, was kind enough lend his tool. I had a #lowcarb moment…Can you guess the name of the tool? #cardiodone #biking #buildingmybestme #11weeksout #contestprep #bikiniathlete #naturalbodybuilder (at LA Fitness)
