When people ask me what the perks are to my online job the FIRST word I think of is FREEDOM...
😊FREEDOM to work/workout on my own time... even after a 9 hour drive I was able to workout and press PLAY and get a sweat sesh in. 
😊FREEDOM for me and Eddie to pick up and go to our friends wedding this last week and visit friends along the way.
😊FREEDOM we got 2 years into this business to replace both our incomes JUST by helping people become healthier.
😊FREEDOM of never having a BOSS again.
😊FREEDOM to DREAM bigger than I ever imagined possible.
😊FREEDOM to help people WITHOUT having to go back to college to get a degree in Exercise Science or Nutrition.
...
Yea those are some pretty awesome perks. And I'm SO GLAD I convinced myself to try this. 
..
If you ever thought this was too good to be true (yep, I Did too) then you are welcome to join my FB Event sneak peek TOMORROW(((((https://tinyurl.com/ycas2hwu)))))))...or my IG stories Thursday where I share more about this Online Coaching Job.

Learning from Failure

32629388_10101510941383722_4193791593221718016_n.jpg

Procrastinator. College drop out. Failed business(es) Owner.....all things you could use to describe me. But from my failures I learned what worked and learned HOW to become successful. 
..
..
What I learned from my failures...
πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰DON'T DO THIS IN YOUR OWNπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ
I needed a SUPPORT team if I was going to make THIS business work. 
..
..
So I joined a 21 day Virtual Fit Club with a TEAM of Coaches in 2014 and became a Coach and it's changed my life FOREVER. I not only learned HOW to build a successful business because because of the incredible support I also learned so much about what my body needed to become it's healthiest. As a Personal trainer and fitness instructor for 10 years Im STILL blown away by how much I learned through Online Coaching. t's been a very humbling experience and I'm the healthiest I've ever been because of it πŸ’ͺ😊
..
..
Listen if YOU are on the fence about FINALLY committing to your OWN health and helping others while you do it #winwin then what is holding you back!?!?!! I have a Facebook Event I'm hosting where I will be sharing my journey of HOW this Changed my life and the lives of others around me. And HOW to become successful If you decide to do this too. If you always wanted to become a successful entrepreneur then remember YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE. 
..
..
DON'T make my same mistakes of trying to do it by yourself. The event link is shared

Out of Control

32651605_10155392013691835_319082543578087424_n.jpg

Alot of things are out of our control but taking care of ourselves is usually something we can control. πŸ’•It's a choice to commit to a gym or Virtual Fit Club. πŸ’• It's a choice to wake up early to get it in if your day is too busy later. πŸ’•It's a choice to make reminders to drink more water. πŸ’•It's a choice to buy healthy food for you and your family.πŸ’• It's a choice to choose to take care of you ESPECIALLY on the days you don't when you dont want to. 
...
Don't wait till its too late and this choice is taken away from you. Choose healthy and happy NOW. I'm always here to help✌😘

Be Courageous

32531855_10101506967746922_1733087220253851648_n.jpg

Be courageous today. Give yourself permission to dream bigger and set higher goals. 
..
Not too long ago I realized the only person holding me back was myself and If I wanted to CREATE a better life then I needed to stand up and be courageous and say, I WANT this and I'm not letting fear of failures control my life! I'm going to trust that even if I do fail then I will be stronger and wiser on the side and over time that stronger and wiser version of me WILL SUCCEED!!!!!✊
...
Have a real talk with yourself and start treating yourself as the once 5 year old self, the person FULL of courage and belief that ANYTHING is possible. The Optimist not jaded from others discouragement. Not jaded from your own discouragement. πŸ™‚
...
The only people who really succeed and CAN change world are the ones who THINK they CAN.πŸ’šπŸŒŽπŸ’š Change your thinking and you CAN change your life. Be courageous friend.#mindsetiseverything #bethechange

Flex Friday

Freakin' Flex Friday ALMOST didn't happen. I was feeling wayyy behind in work then I went to update my Zumba playlist for tomorrow and somehow DELETED MY ZUMBA PLAYLIST FROM ITUNES!!!!!!!! What the whaaaaaaaaaa!?!??!? So yea. I spent about 4 hours finding my songs and using YouTube to remind me what songs I had.πŸ€”πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜€πŸ˜’πŸ˜­ Ok......enough complaining after 4 hours I was done. I needed a sweat sesh to get me back in the RIGHT mindset. Seriously it helps to just SHUT YOUR BRAIN OFF. Tomorrow will be amazing. Zumba will be amazing. I'm willing it to happen. I'm thankful I found some songs and it's gonna rock tomorrow ✊ Happy thoughts πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
.....
Btw.....teaching 4 master classes this month. Check out www.sarahplacencia.com for the GARRET INDIANA, LANCASTER PENNYSLYVA AND SEATTLE, WA CLASSES πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜‰ WOULD love to sweat with ya!!!!!!

Involved in Fitness

32227045_10155383314801835_5054773673819373568_n.jpg

I always loved fitness, ever since I was a kid. It started back in the day watching American Gladiators and later wanting to kick like Shelly Blanks from Tae BoπŸ’ͺ😍 So naturally I fell into the gym scene and became licensed in many different formats some of which I still teach today.
.
Zumba for almost 10 years! What!?!? It was Zumba where I met my first Real tribe of women who loved making a difference in others lives. I so love the many friendships I've made -and actually half the ladies in this pic are Zumba instructors! πŸ˜ ...
While teaching over the years so many of my students also became instructors and while I LOVED seeing them succeed there was a part of me saddened that I wouldn't see them in class because they had thier own classes now. And then there were less students in my class and I was also barely making rent at the studios I was working at. While I still loved helping people, it started to be bring me down. Until I found a solutuon...
.
I Always thought...πŸ’"Wouldn't it be awesome if when I encouraged my students to become involved in Fitness, I got some type of referral bonus!?" Yea that would be nice....not to say money is the only concern here, but to be compensated more for the hours of work behind the scenes (instructors/trainers know what I'm talking aboutπŸ˜‰). After A LOT of research I found the answer and fyi, THIS ALREADY EXISTS!!!!!!!
.
4 years ago I realized this is how Coaching works. I help others. They become successful in thier health journey and then also become Coaches and we run Virtual Fit Clubs TOGETHER.πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹ I get customer leads and also residual income and we have actually made a real income from this. 
..
Those babes in that pic are some of the Coaches on our team and we go on Coach Retreats together and build our dreams TOGETHER. This was the COMMUNITY I dreamed of all those years ago. Helping others become healthier & building a tribe of women who also benefit from working as a TEAM. πŸ’ŸπŸ˜πŸ’Ÿ Have you always thought you had to figure out this "Fitness career" alone!?!?!🀷 Well you don't have to. I'm here to help. Message me about Coaching. This might be your answer too. πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

Responsible

32191337_10155381104521835_2241872984623022080_n.jpg

Who is responsible for your happiness? 
.
πŸ‘‰YOUπŸ‘ˆ
.
Nobody else can "make" you happy.... But really, How FREEING is that!?!!!??! Sure it's not gonna be perfect, but I'm not talking about a perfect life. I'm talking about a HAPPY Life. πŸ˜› I'm talking about putting yourself FIRST. When you do that, you take care of YOU so you are better able to love YOURSELF and also have the energy to love and take care of others!!!! That ain't selfish 😘 that's you showing up and OWNING your OWN Happiness! So show up, take responsibility and live that HAPPY life! You are worth it. πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜

Spice

31961092_10101502273678872_9182324007909720064_n.jpg

Day 2 done! As I was doing my Virtual workout I realize I would NOT have decided to do another round if I was bored with it. HONESTLY. I did this program before but I realized I was still improving still lifting heavier, still pushing past my limits and I enjoyed the journey. So why the heck, stop?!?πŸ’ͺ😊 
...
You have to ask yourself, "Am I being PUSHED ENOUGH??!" If your workouts don't excite you or you don't see progress from them, then it might be time to switch it up!!!! Don't get stuck & don't get bored people!! Try something new and you will see your flexibility, balance, endurance or strebgth improve!!! Variety is the spice of life πŸ‘Œ

Sweet Drinks

31955975_10155376696481835_2734752706978643968_n.jpg

Yep, I used to love ALLLL the sweet drinks...pop, juice, lemonade freezy pops....all that. To eventually kick the habit, try adding nature's own sweetener to your water. Orange, lemon or strawberries or watermelon are a good choice πŸ˜‰ I also add an Emergen-C packet every now and then. πŸ˜‰ Stil not sweet enough!? Get over it. I never said it would be easy. But it IS worth it. πŸ˜‚ And trust me, NOW this is sweet enough for me. It didn't happen over night, but small changes over time make a HUGE impact in weeks, months and years to come πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜#youaresweetenoughalready

Back on Track

31944086_10155374911776835_2477797101560397824_n.jpg

After tacos, nachos and sangria I'm ready to be back on track tudhh-day!! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
..
What's important to me is to have a treat meal about 2x a week. The fit life should NEVER involve deprivation. It's all about finding balance and WANTING to treat your body right so it can run more efficiently.
..
Sometimes that quick fix or treat is worth it, but planning it out is what makes that treat or cheat more enjoyable. πŸ˜‰ I know some ppl plan out their healthy eating but I kinda do the opposite. I plan out my treats πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ as long as 85% of the week is clean then that %15 can be whatevs. At least that's what I have found works for me! 
Yea I'm sluggish today and I knew I would be but I'm making a conscious effort to get back to my superfoods shake and drink plenty of water and eat my veggies so that by tomorrow I can FEEL back to normal. πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‰ Lets make it a great week ppl!!!!! πŸ’•πŸ’™πŸ’•

Flex Friday

31945411_10155371187506835_4551342445178126336_n.jpg

Happy Flex Friday friends! I know a lot of you have reached out about what I eat and if I follow A meal plan and to be COMPLETELY honest with you all.πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“ πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆI SUUUUUUUUCCCKK at following rules, diets and yes even portion control is a major struggle. But what I have realized over the years is the ONLY thing that I needed to change was my RELATIONSHIP with food. I used to be an emotional eater and starve and binge myself almost daily!!!! πŸ˜­πŸ˜±
....
I had to look at food entirely different if I wanted to get past my emotional and stress eating habits. If you also have struggled or are struggling with this then I want you to know there's hope. I have a NEW group starting soon that WILL help. 
Do you relate to any or all of these?
πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
πŸ˜“I'm sick of yo-yo diets
πŸ˜“ I think about food all the time
πŸ˜“ I don''t have time to follow a meal planπŸ˜“ I work out because I HATE my body, not because I love it
πŸ˜“Sometimes I don't even workout because I know I will quit
πŸ˜“ I just don't know how to start.....
....
Seriously you guys OUR MINDSET HAS TO CHANGE BEFORE BUYING THE NEXT PILL, OR WRAP OR SURGERY!!!!!!! 
...
If you want to be held accountable and learn to πŸ’•LOVE YOURSELF FROM THE INSIDE OUTπŸ’• then send me a text or message. I KNOW that struggle and I WANT to help you get past this πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ’•

My New Office

31817355_10101497915762172_1912786989766148096_n.jpg

Welcome to my new office πŸ˜‚ seriously I'm sooo in LOVE with our bedroom now! And I still can't believe we bought this house.😍😍 Eddie repainted the bedroom and we got new furniture to go with it. Like, how is this real life!???! 
...
Ya wanna know HOW!??!!? 4 years ago I decided I wanted to start an online Fitness business. And if I wanted to make this work, I knew I needed to showed up to help others to inspire enough belief in themselves to show up also. I've helped hundreds of people now on their health journey & I run my Virtual Fit Clubs with people who also want to help others while also making an income.πŸ™‹πŸ™ŒπŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™ŒπŸ™‹That's it. βœŠThat's why I am here. Working in sweats from my bed.
..
..
Are you a dreamer AND a doer!? Curious to at least see exactly what an "Online Coach" does? If so, check out the comment section....I'll share a group you can request to join..... I will be going live later in that private group teaching you exactly HOW this works. You can also join my Virtual Fit Clubs to see if this IS actually REAL!!! πŸ˜‚ πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰Because I get it. I used to doubt and judge ANY online businessπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆBut now that this one has brought me and Eddie freedom then I want to help inspire hope for those that have none. That's why I'm here. And that's why I will be a Coach FOREVER. βœŒI'm here to help, all you need to do is askπŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ’•

Each Coach’s income depends on his or her own efforts, diligence, and skill. No office required. A bed will do πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

Just Keep Going

31914175_10155369520966835_7214224621124452352_n.jpg

I truly believe everyone CAN be successful in ANYTHING. The one RULE to live by though....
πŸ‘‰Show up even on the days you don't feel like it. πŸ‘ˆ 
...
...
If you understand that then you will know the importance of taking responsibility for your actions (or lack there of)πŸ™ˆ
... 
...
Time will pass regardless. Would you rather look back and say ...."I wish I would have taken responsibility & changed my life"....or..."I'm glad I took the responsibility to become who I am today." 
...
...
JUST.KEEP.GOING.✌

Fear

31453682_10101493835099852_5957973369368096087_n.jpg

Fear. It's what holds us back. In my experience the BIGGEST reason people stop trying to improve themselves is FEAR of being judged from others. But This judgement is most likely only coming from your perception of everyone around you. And the most important perception is the opinion of YOURSELF. 
...
We created scenarios of hate and judgement and built a wall of fear so tall that our fight or flight has kicked in. And instead of facing that fear we decided to run away from it. That leads us right back to where we started. Upset, angry and lost. Again. 
....
Now picture that WALL OF FEAR is a mirror. Walk up to it. The mirror reflects yourself 10, 20 and 30 years younger.
..
What would you tell your YOUNGER self? Would you encourage her? Give her hope and tell her that her future is full of love and happiness? Would you tell her to face her fears and be brave and to know that its OK to fail because there are lessons to be learned so she can be wiser, happier and fully love herself and fully love others?
..
Now picture your reflection is you 10,20 30 years from now. What does she look like? Happy with laugh lines & surrounded by people she loves? Is she full of adventurous stories? What wisdom would she share with you? Would she give you hope and tell you that your future is love and full of hope? Would she tell you to stop judging yourself? Would she tell you that you are brave and CAN do this? Would she thank you for chasing your dreams and living your best life? 
..
Now picture NOW. Instead go to your mirror NOW. I mean it. Get up. Walk to your bathroom and shut the door. Look at yourself with a smile and Repeat....
πŸ’•I AM BEAUTIFUL.
πŸ’•I AM BRAVE.
πŸ’•I HAVE A STORY TO TELL.
πŸ’•I HAVE SEEN HEARTACHE BUT I WILL CHOOSE TO LOVE MYSELF EACH AND EVERYDAY BECAUSE I AM ENOUGH.
πŸ’•I WILL MAKE MY PAST PROUD OF ME.
πŸ’•I WILL MAKE MY FUTURE SELF PROUD OF ME. 
πŸ’•I WILL MAKE MYSELF PROUD TODAY
πŸ’•I LOVE MYSELF.
πŸ’•I LOVE OTHERS.
πŸ’•I LOVE AND I AM LOVED BY OTHERS. 
...
I LOVE you friend βœŒπŸ’• Now let's look at any fear as a mirror from now on. Let's face it and choose love over hate. EVERYTIME.

In A Funk

31344425_10155352485266835_156599715010687098_n.jpg

Happy Wednesday friends! I am focused on the positivity today and I will spend my energy on finding solutions rather than talking about problems πŸ‘Œ 
..
Yesterday I was kinda in a funk & I was spending too much time on negative energy whereas I SHOULD be getting back to what I CAN do! If I'm going to spend my energy on anything, why decide to complain about problems rather than taking action helping myself and others in a positive way!? 
..
Sounds simple enough, but seriously I struggle time to time, like we all do. But we can't hide from our problems, we must face them (isn't that from The Sound Of Music!?πŸ€”) 
..
..
I encourage you all to face what's bothering you. YES, I know you have something or someine btinging you down. And Yea, its gonna be hard, but so worth it once you move past it. Find a solution rsther than complain ONE MORE SECOND and if there is NO solution then MOVE ON!!!! Your energy and time will be spent anyway. Might as well use it for the good and learn a new lesson. You got this!!! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

Sweaty

31250623_10155352648316835_3777439440684332907_n.jpg

Holy SWEAT! How did I get this sweaty with a 30 MINUTE workout!?!? I didn't even finish my pre-workout πŸ˜‚ oh well ready to crush the rest of the day now...... Is it your leg day workout today too!!?!? If so I challenge YOU to lift a little heavier. You WILL feel and see a difference πŸ˜‰πŸ‘Œ I KNOW you got it in you!!!!!

Make the Rest the Best

31189688_10155350690381835_9164790120516590523_n.jpg

My journey as a Coach & Fitness instructor has taught me so much about pursuing my BEST life. But in order for that to happen I had to be willing to get a little uncomfortable and show up on the days I didn't FEEL like it. Just like anything in life πŸ‘‰pursuing your passion takes time, dedication and consistency. But that's definitely NOT the hardest part of my journey......
..
.. 
Once I could teach and Coach MYSELF how to show up then it was on me to lead others to become healthier, happier and driven. I became a mentor to those that wanted this same life. That's where this journey gets hard. πŸ˜«πŸ˜―😫
..
..
While I see potential in SOOOO MANY PEOPLE there's STILL nothing I can do or say to motivate someone else to live their BEST life.... And that SUCKS. No secret spell I can learn from the Show Supernatural πŸ˜‚ ha!!! I honestly wish I could be there on their shoulders to help encourage them daily, but I can't. The only thing I can do is hope and pray that they learn to love themselves ENOUGH to pursue their OWN BEST life and show up daily to it. 
..
..
In a way I feel we are ALL Coaches, Leaders, Parents and Teachers who are mentors to others. And just because someone fails or quits does NOT mean we failed them. The ONLY way to lead is by TRUE EXAMPLE. If we do that, then we have done our job and that's the BEST we can do πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

Procrastination

31190021_10155349351336835_294255106143110155_n.jpg

I used to be a BIG procrastinator (I am only sometimes now...like dping my workout at 8pm πŸ˜‚) but REAL TALK....if I wanted to successful in my health, my business and my relationships then I needed to stop talking a BIG talk and start taking REAL ACTION.
..
I had to come face to face with my acrtons...or lack there of to recongnize the ONLY thing holding me back..was ME. Not the actions of others, not the economy, not the girl with more likes on her social media ((( I mean really, how petty am I right now!?!?...getting better, promise. I just wanna give ya the TRUTH)))
..
..
Can you relate to this at all!?!? Are you wasting time, not bettering yourself because you are living in comparison or playing the "if only " or "but I can't because" never ending song!?!?!?! Well I'm here to say stop the EXCUSES and replace THAT mindless activity with REAL RESULTS producing ACTIONS!!! Because if I can .....ummmm SO CAN YOU. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
..
..
So how bout it!? Take this as your sign to stop talking about what you wish you could do or have and GO FOR IT!!!!
Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words so don't just TELL me you wish you were happy, successful or fit, Take ACTION. Each day you say" tomorrow" pushes YOUR success away another day. Even if it's not pretty, not perfect, not even your BEST. Just DOOOOOO IIIITTTTT!!!! βœŒπŸ˜I BELIEVE IN YOU. NOW BELIEVE IN YOU.
