@xtina_geri_fitness is a single mom/superhero. Her Instagram profile describes her as a self-love mentor and online fitness coach but I began following her because I LOVE watching her garage training videos showing her WITH her toddler Malakai. Every session isn’t a perfect PR setting event and she can’t always go Beast Mode (whatever that really is) because she’s got to keep her little one safe. But that’s the beauty of this messy, awesome lifestyle of ours. It creates indelible, teachable moments that build a legacy of health and strength in our family tree. It’s not the school’s job to train our kids to be healthy, not the doctor’s job to make them disease resistant. It’s ours. And that can be a burden and a blessing. I understand.
You Are Not Alone
I know that training in the garage by yourself is tough. You usually don’t have the camaraderie of other gym members to help push you. That’s why I combed the web to find videos like this one that will help motivate you to keep striving to be your best. Check out this video of Christina training with Malakai who exhibits perfect deadlift form by the way! She inspires me to make it work regardless of circumstances and Malakai inspires me to work on my mobility so my body doesn’t fight against itself when I’m trying to perform a basic human movement!
Until next week, stay motivated and keep training hard until people want to post videos of you!
