KILLING it in 2017

It’s my B I R T H D A Y….let’s “TWERK” first 🙂

I have never been one to make new year’s resolutions. When my birthday comes around I spend a lot of time alone reflecting on the entire year. The highs and the lows. This past trip around the sun has honestly been some of the most drastic highs and lows.

The lows were some of the lowest I have ever felt. Looking back, I am really proud of myself. I allowed myself to feel every ounce of pain I was going through. Instead of trying to figure it all out I stayed very patient. This low was familiar. I had been here many times before. But, this time it felt different. It was heavier and I knew deep down it was going to last a while. I also knew that the only way through was to not fight it.

My entire existence was tired.

One thing I know how to do and have mastered is showing up. I have shown up on my hardest days. This is a skill I have been so grateful for. My career not only demands it but it is something that has turned into my biggest coaching tool. Coaching my clients on how to take TAKE ACTION, STAY ACCOUNTABLE and most of all to SHOW UP on the best and the worst days is key to longterm success with any health, fitness and lifestyle changes.

My definition of Showing Up: “bringing the best version of you to the table, even when you want to crawl into bed and not be seen. This has nothing to do with showing up “perfectly.” It’s simply showing up just as you are and learning how to own it.”

Most of all I was forgiving with myself in a way that will always be a work in progress.

It’s my BIRTH – DAY, and I am grateful to be here.

It’s been a whirlwind these last couple of months.

I am excited to share highlights of 2017, plus a little glimpse of what’s to come for It’s Your Body, It’s Your Life and the badass humans that continue to build this community with me in-person and online

1. Guest spoke at MTTI  (MotoRing Technical Training Institute )

“Tessa met with our Personal Fitness Trainer students, and after leaving a lasting impression on them we asked her to come back to meet with the medical students. All of our students have so much going on in their lives outside of school and when you combine that with a heavy workload, it can be overwhelming. Tessa talked to them about the importance of putting yourself first, using real life examples from willing students. She brought them through her Breathe.Move.Love. signature program, which left them in awe and wanting more! Tessa’s energy, truth, and drive to help others is contagious and we welcome her back anytime. We can’t thank Tessa enough for coming in and helping to better our staff and students from the inside out!”  -Ali Ring (Career Services Representative)

5. Partnered with Eric Wilson of Movement Sciences at the finish line of the Boston Marathon offering a post marathon oasis.

The best highlight from the Boston Marathon. The energy is off the hook all day from start to finish. One of my first clients ever, Michael Fitzpatrick, has been running and training since he lost a close friend to the marathon Bombings in 2013. He finished in 2:43 (6:12 pace). We sat on comm ave and cheered runners on till the sun was setting. #epicday
