@charlesknowlesjr This picture brings up my first memory of training 🤦🏾‍♂️. I was convinced to play football which included lifting weights. 🤨
.
.
.
After the first team lift I was extremely sore and decided the coach would understand if I didn’t show up the next session. Two days later I return and he asks me where I was.
.
.
.
I looked up and smiled the same way I am in this picture and said “ I was sore thought it be best to wait until I wasn’t” he stared at me in disbelief paused, called the whole team over....long story short I never missed another training session because of soreness 😩😩.

@charlesknowlesjr I did not stand the students in this order 😩🤨🤣
.
.
.
Kidding aside.... thank you to the amazing staff at Thomas Elementary in South Philadelphia for inviting me. I was given an opportunity that I did not take for granted. That was to share the story of the  challenges I encountered during my childhood years after the sudden departure of my Father. 🙏🏾
.
.
.
However I made sure to EMPHASIZE this... you can take the most challenging situations life throws at you and turn them into a positive that helps others, if you keep the right mindset and focus on the blessing that comes with those tribulations 💪🏾

I did not stand the students in this order 😩🤨🤣 . . . Kidding aside.......

It has been a dream of mine to give back to the church, with the knowledge and gifts God has blessed me with. Recently that dream became a reality, when Pastor Phil asked me to be apart of the foundation and launching of The GSC fitness program. I played it cool 😎, but inside was beyond excited! 🤣

By the way check the sweat on Pastor Phil’s Shirt, he trains just as hard as he preaches! ⛪️ 💪🏾😳

@charlesknowlesjr We all have different goals when it comes to fitness. One of mine is to stay fit/lean, no matter the time of year maintaining my abs best as possible. 😫
.
.
Accomplishing this can be a process. I want to share some things that I do, that may make your process a little more enjoyable. .
.
1. I always start my workout with at least 10 minutes of cardio (I know lots of different opinions on before or after weights) .

2. Make sure to do at least 75 reps of any ab exercises every time you train (end or beginning ) . 
3. 90% of the time I don’t eat ANY bread during the week.

We all have different goals when it comes to fitness. One of mine is t...

@charlesknowlesjr 💪🏽IF you’re someone who struggles to consistently make it to the gym 5-6x per week and training the arm day/ leg day style split not getting the results you want. Read below I believe this will make a difference. 🤞🏽
.
.
.
While the bodybuilder style splits are extremely effective ways to train, if you aren’t in the gym 5-6x per week they can be extremely challenging. Try different style training “splits” for example on Monday’s do all upper body exercises 2-3 for each body part. On Tuesdays do all lower body exercises. .
.
.
Repeat this process for as many times as you are able to make it in the gym each week! Try it out and let me know how it works for you. If you are making it to the gym regularly it may just a nice change to your routine 😊

@charlesknowlesjr The tattoo on my arm says “Gone from my life not my heart ❤️ Dad” 
I began training, because of the loss of my father when I was only 7 and he just 39 due to his inactive lifestyle constantly working. It 
impacted my family tremendously and in turn has caused me to dedicate my life to help others on a healthier path so the same doesn’t happen to them or their children. 🤞🏽 .

@charlesknowlesjr Staying focused in the gym isn’t always easy as we all face distractions, however here are a few things I wanted to share with you that I’ve found helpful in keeping me locked making the most of my time while training... The last one is my favorite by the way! 🤞🏽
.
.
.
🎤Make a playlist before you walk into the gym, so you don’t have to waste time searching for music. .
.
.
🤞🏽Set up a custom message that answers your text/calls for you.
.
.
.
🤫  Commit to staying off all social media until you finish your workout
.
.
.
📕✏️Have a routine or program that you will follow before you go in don’t “wing “ it.  Having a plan is important! .
.
.
⏰ Set a timer for 45-60 minutes to go off, once it does you HAVE to leave the gym. This will force you to maintain a consistent pace throughout your workout making the most of your time!

day, leg day!😆 Website in bio ☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽

If you have a goal to improve your fitness at any level, elite or beginner this exercise should be apart of your routine! Lunges not only help shape/tone your legs and buttocks, but also help improve your core strength which relives lower back pain, improving your posture and athletic performance as well!

Still not enough of a reason to add them to your routine? Lunges will also help improve/speed up your metabolism causing you to burn excess fat! 🤞🏽🤞🏽💪🏽 Connect with me via private messaging or email me at Charles@VisionPlusFitness.com for coaching one on one, group or online!
