Just for fun… I am only having one cup of coffee in the morning and then none the rest of the day. I want to see how my body reacts to less caffeine. Normally, i can still drink coffee at 9 p.m. and go to …

So, I have this client who comes during the 5:30 group. The conversation tonight was kind of interesting. We started talking about movement and soreness and how certain movements make certain things hurt (not in the bad way) and how other movements make things feel …
I had the opportunity this past weekend to attend the inaugural Dragon Door Health and Strength Conference in Minneapolis. It was absolutely incredible. The best of the best! Unreal! True icons in the business. I can’t even put it into words. Just incredible. Seriously, Marty Gallagher. Holy Shit!!! Jen Sinkler. Holy Shit!! Keira Newton (my mentor). Holy Shit!! I can’t even name everyone. The speakers were so great.
I got the chance to finally talk to Jen towards the end of the second day. She was absolutely beautiful in person. So approachable and so nice. If you do not know her, you should. She owns The Movement in Minneapolis and is a big deal in the fitness world.
So, like I said, we can’t deny it. We really do check each other out. I met some awesome women this weekend and I admit it, I checked them out. One of them, Shari – had the most amazing back and shoulders. Another one, Lori, was the epitome of health. Absolutely glowing. Another one, Katie, Oh Em Gee – muscles popping and so beautiful. Annie Vo, BEAUTIFUL beyond words. These women are empowering. I learned something from each and every one of them. But most of all, they were all so friendly. We all had the utmost respect for each other. There was no jealousy or envy. It was truly rooting for each other. The women of Dragon Door truly support each other. We want each other to succeed.
Back to Jen Sinkler – I was a little tentative about just walking right up and introducing myself, but hey, why not? She was amazing. Jen, as well as I, are all about empowering women, none of the- let’s be as skinny as we can bullshit. It is all about being yourself and loving yourself, no matter what you look like. So when I got home I messaged Jen and said this, “Didn’t want to plaster this on your wall, in case you didn’t agree, but you have a huge ass and it is awesome! I mean that in the most complimentary way!” She later posted a comment on FB, “Peggie Larsen RKC, you just made my day with the butt thing. So great to meet you…” She truly gets the female fitness stuff and I totally love and respect her.
In reality, she made my day by being normal and wanting to empower women. I love that!
