SBSC Fit Tip: Vitamin B12 What Is It & Why You Need It #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps your nerves and red blood cells in a healthy state. It’s responsible for the functioning of several of your critical body processes.

B-12 deficiencies happen. Vegetarians, heavy drinkers,  smokers, pregnant and breast-feeding women,  elderly, and those suffering with pernicious anemia, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, bacteria growth in the small intestine, or a parasite, usually require vitamin B12 supplements.  A  severe vitamin B12 deficiency can also lead to deep depression, paranoia and delusions, memory loss, incontinence, loss of taste and smell, and even more.

Vitamin B-12 also helps to boost metabolism and promote fat burning in the body in several ways. It helps to transform fats and protein to energy through metabolism and it works with folic acid to produce red blood cells that carry oxygen from your lungs to all the cells in your body. Without enough vitamin B12, red blood cells would be deformed and unable to carry oxygen efficiently, causing decreased metabolism, low energy and like stated above, health problems.

Needless to say, your body needs vitamin B12 The average adult should be getting at least 2.4 micrograms a day.  B12 can’t be made by the body. Instead, it must be gotten from food or supplements. And herein lies the problem: Some people don’t consume enough vitamin B12 to meet their needs.

This problem is easily remedied by multi- vitamins such as Saturn Supplement’s VitaPlex. Saturn’s VitaPlex multivitamin is back and better than ever! Their new formula is a liquid-filled chlorophyll-based capsule and contains a 42 Fruit & Vegetable Blend as well as CoQ10, Vitamin D3, B-12, Wheat Grass, Acai, Blueberry, Grape Seed, Panax Ginseng and a host of supporting nutrients including AntiOxidants, Electrolytes and nutrients that fortify Hair, Skin & Nails. VitaPlex is perfect for both Men and Women and makes an excellent source of nutrition for everyday health.


or by just taking a B-12 supplement by itself.


Without it, your health and fitness are at risk. Protect yourself today!!!

SBSC Motivation Monday: No Slowing Down, Stay Driven! #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!!!

Time to Rise ‘N’ Grind! I am ready to smash this week! Last week was a struggle for me. I am tired, sore, and have days where I question myself. I think we all have days like that. It seems to hit me hardest in contest prep. I try to stay positive and talk myself back up, but some days I struggle with that too. These are the days I spend more time in the gym pushing myself. the gym in my happy place. I try to get it all out of my system, I train, I pray, and sometimes I even cry. Some days are hard and that is okay. I know that everyone has low days and we just have to be strong and push through them.

This week marks me at 3 weeks out from the Las Vegas Classic. I booked my hotel over the weekend and finished buying the last of my supplies like body scrub, make-up, lashes nails, and all the girly stuff that makes me shine a bit brighter on stage. This prep has been different in many aspects. I know more what to expect walking into my competitions. It helps that I did the Las Vegas Classic last year. I met a ton of amazing ladies last year that have become friends. This year is no different. I have already started talking online with several of my competitors and they are all such phenomenal souls! I love this sport and how everyone is so positive with each other and so supportive. You don’t a lot of women lifting each other up and being supportive. It’s nice to be a part of a community that for the most part does!

I had several competitors answer questions and help me with so much over the past year. I met IFBB Pro Beckie Boddie last year at the Las Vegas Classic. She was helping backstage in the tanning area. She also trained at the same gym I did. Talking on a regular basis, we became friends. I have turned several of my friends down for training, mainly because I didn’t have the money to pay them and felt bad about using their service for free. Beckie told me to think of it as a sponsorship ha ha. She has been awesome in helping me not only with my training, but my nutrition and posing.

I feel this is the best conditioning I have had yet and I am excited to not only see the end result, but to get back on that stage. Up to this point I trained myself and educated myself. I wasn’t far off, but it is nice to have someone who knows the industry, educate me on more of the in’s and out’s of competitions. She has even advised me on hair and make up choices and what exactly the judges look for. This insight is definitely something I was lacking. It will be nice to have someone teach me what to look for hour by hour on contest day and how to get my body to react in certain ways with nutrition manipulation.

It’s like I say every year, I am always learning and evolving. I will start classes up again shortly after competition. I want to study more about nutrition and fat loss, so I can help my clients be even more successful than they already are!

This week I want us to stay focused on staying positive. We are our own hardest and toughest critics. Sometimes we all need to be reminded to give yourself a break. We are training hard and doing what we are suppose to. Results will come, if we trust the process.

Today is Monday and it’s time to get our minds right! As always, let’s kick things off with some Lady Swole Monday…


Last week is just that, last week. Let’s stay positive and motivated this week. Focus on what you are working towards. I suggest making a journal or a motivation board to hang somewhere that you will see it everyday. Anything to help you stay motivated, positive, and to keep going! This week we make HUGE changes!!!

SBSC Fit Tip: L-Carnitine = Energy, Fat Loss, & Healthy Aging #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

What is L-Carnitine?


L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is synthesized by your kidneys and liver and concentrated in your body’s most metabolically active organs like the brain, heart, and muscles. Its basic primary job is to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they’re burned for energy.

The older you get, the less Carnitine your body produces. This is the main reason many people experience fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increase in body fat, mental and physical slowdown, and frailty as they age.

Carnitine also plays an important role in preventing fatty buildup, in the heart, liver, and skeletal muscles, and it helps keep blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in check. The heart actually depends on carnitine for normal heart function.

It also contributes to weight loss because it may increase your muscle mass and metabolic rate and as a result burn more calories during the day.

Carnitine’s antioxidant effect also helps with aging and overall general health. Saturn Supplement’s Carnitine Is a Hi-Powered Metabolizer that boosts athletic performance! It provides your body with a superior source of nutrition that promotes muscle energy thermogenesis, and maximizes oxygenation.

Saturn’s Pharma-Engineered Carnitine provides 500mg of pure acetyl l-carnitine free flowing muscle nutrition with zero fillers or additives. Making it one of the purest and best on the market!


To obtain therapeutic dosages of the supplement, it is necessary to use 500 to 1,000 mg of acetyl-L-carnitine daily, according to the Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute. They reported this dose is generally considered safe for healthy adults. Carnitine use is very safe but may produce some side effects. I recommend asking your doctor before using any carnitine

Carnitine is one of my top fat-burner supplements, because it is safe and has multiple benefits. I do recommend asking your doctor before using any carnitine.

SBSC Fit Tips: Quick & Easy Protein Cake #PoweredBySaturnSupplements

Top nutrition issue with my clients is lack of protein, which is imperative in burning fat.

One suggestion I give my clients is to break down your total day’s worth of protein into how much you need per meal. For example, if you are to consume 160g of protein a day and typically eat 3 meals and 2 snacks You could break it down to 40g per meal and 20g per snack. If you are still struggling to hit your protein goals, then I suggest a quality protein powder. Look for proteins that have low to no fat or carbs and are very high in protein. You see a lot of these new companies promising you the world with their products. They have to sell all these different flavors and hype their products up, for several reasons. One is that they are packed full of crap that is not going to help you, in some cases it hinders your progress. Another reason is that they are new companies that are trying to make money as fast as they can, before people realize that their products are not exactly what they promise.

This is one of the many reasons I love Saturn Supplements so much! They have been in the industry for over 25 years. Their products have stood the test of time and have proven time and time again that they ARE QUALITY! Quality trumps anything else in my book!!!

A quick and delicious way to get your protein in is by protein cakes. I love to whip them up in the microwave for a quick and easy snack! The protein I use for this is Saturn’s Pro 4100 Hydrolyzed. I am using chocolate in the photos, but all the flavors work awesome and you can make so many different flavor combinations!!! I use the Pro 4100 because it has zero fat, carbs, sugar, lactose, gluten, and is non GMO. It is basically awesomeness in powder form!!!

PRO 4100 Hydrolyzed

The two main ingredients you need for the cake are the Pro 4100 and baking powder. Yes, the cake is that simple! Put a serving (or however much protein you need one serving is 39g of protein) in the bowl. One serving of protein I typically use one teaspoon of baking powder. Mix a little water in it isn’t really thick in texture and actually gets a bit frothy.


Once mixed, just pop it in the microwave for 25-30 seconds. You don’t want it to cook all the way. When you cook it all the way, it becomes dry and not tasty. Bonus is the extra goo acts as an icing of sorts.

I sometimes like to dress them up with extra flavors, like Walden Farms zero calorie chocolate and caramel syrups, and a dash of salt, but they are phenomenal on their own!!!


What you get is a moist, delicious, protein packed, sweet treat that literally takes just a couple of minutes to make!


Check out Saturn’s Pro 4100 and their other amazing line of products! They have everything from A to Zinc!!!

SBSC Fitness Motivation Monday No More Excuses #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!!!

Whew! Last week was a doozy for the Broadbent household, but we made it through. Hubs started his new job today which I am thrilled for him!!! I have the pleasure of unpacking, cleaning, and getting the house in order. The move was certainly difficult in the sense that I am in prep and taking a different approach than I have in the past. It’s like I have said before, no prep is the same. My training is amp’d up this year. I train a lot more and my diet has been much more strict. It has also changed this year, because I am working now. I have several active clients. I am busy building my business daily, as well as still studying daily, because I am back in school. Furthering my education is all part of the process as well. And not just my education, Zoe is now in school too. That is at least 4 hours a day. With all of this going on, this mama has been busier than ever and exhausted!!!

When someone tells me they don’t have time to achieve a dream they have for their life no matter what it is, I typically just hear an excuse. If you truly want something, you will make time for it! My day’s schedule is full, but everything I do is working towards something I want. I sacrifice time on the sofa watching tv to work towards my dreams. Sometimes I get lucky lol and I can catch a show or something I like on the tv while I am doing cardio, but it’s certainly not a priority for me.

Excuses will hold you back from the things you want. Making changes can be scary, but more times than none, it is worth it! Do what you have to do to stay focused on your goals. I make a monthly goal list to keep me on track and a motivation board in my room to keep me pushing. I also have a book that I write down all my long term dreams and goals in. I write down the plan I have to reach those goals and how to break them down into smaller steps. Once you map out your journey, it becomes easier to see how to get to what you want.

This week, we again have several new faces on Team SBSC! Welcome! This is Motivation Monday. Basically a post where I update what’s going on with me, then do my best to get you ready to have a kick ass week! Let’s get motivated!!!

As always I like to get started with a little Lady Swole Monday…


Your time is now! Always take time to sit down and remember your WHY. Why did you decide to start this journey? What made an impact on you that made you feel the need to change? Start using your why as fuel to keep you fired up and pushing harder. Your intensity has to stay high! Only you can motivate you. You can read and see motivational things all day, but in the end it is YOU who makes the choice whether or not you are going to act on it! It’s Monday, what is your next step???

SBSC Fitness September Goal Recap

Okay, can we please hit a pause button here?

September flew by. I am still playing catch up and will be for at least a week ha ha ha.

Thus the reason I am posting my September goal recap on October 2nd. I am still going to post my normally scheduled posts on Monday and Tuesday, so my October Goals won’t be posted till at least Wednesday. Baby steps right ha ha ha.

Here is the recap of my September…

Goal One ~ Stay Driven, Focused, & Hungry ~ Like I said when I posted this one, contest prep has a way of breaking even the strongest people. Having to move when I am this far into prep was difficult to say the least. Not going to lie, all of the mental and physical stress almost broke me. I am so thankful to have a supportive husband who helped me keep it together. Keeping my head in the game was hard. Every time I almost threw in the towel, I sat myself down full face to face and gave myself “The Talk” Sometimes you have to remind yourself how much work you have invested and how bad you once wanted it. The feeling of defeat took me over the past two years. I am still driven, I am still focused, and I am still hungry!!! I am not broken and I am coming for everything I know that I deserve!!!

Goal Two ~ Pack Up ~ Packing up the house was actually not too bad. Every year, I make our moves the time that we clean house. I donate every box that we haven’t opened in the last year. Donate clothes and even furniture. My sweet hubs decided that we were in need of a new sofa, so he took it upon himself to update our living room. I didn’t have to move that furniture, because he had it delivered. That was pretty awesome and definitely helped with stress levels!!!  I am happy that everything is done! Now to get everything unpacked ha ha ha ha. I will say, Arizona is amazing and we love our new apartment and new gym!!!

Goal Three ~ Posing Practice ~ Y’all know that I never skip posing practice. I even practice while I am training ha ha ha ha ha. Shoot, I probably practice in my sleep ha ha. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends in this industry!!! IFBB Pro Hope “Smallwonder” Trask has been motivating me for years now. She is one of the people who got me into competing to begin with! IFBB Pro Beckie Boddie I met while living in Vegas and this woman is as beautiful inside as she is outside! She took me under her wing at the gym and has been helping me reshape, lean out, condition, and overall just make sure I am stage ready. It’s awesome to actually know people at the competition this year! My posing has improved ten fold and I can’t wait to show it off on stage this year!!!

IFBB Pro Hope “Smallwonder” Trask

IFBB Pro Beckie Boddie

Goal Four ~ Keep Zoe Going ~ I was able to get Zoe pretty far ahead in Nevada by having her do extra lessons and working on the weekends. She actually had all of last week off, so I could withdraw her from the school system in Las Vegas and get her enrolled here in Phoenix. She will still be doing online public school with Connections Academy. In Arizona the laws are different, so we will be increasing her hours. 20 hours per week vs 10. It is fine with us, because we typically were studying that long anyway. We did have a hiccup when we got here, that has delayed her enrollment. I didn’t have internet access till Friday to send the school some vital info. Luckily she will be able to just jump right in once they get it all in the system. If she is behind at all, the school here actually goes on break in a week or two and I will just have her work through it. We were able to join a new gym, but unlike our Vegas gym it is not within walking distance. It’s never a big deal for me to change up my gym schedule and it actually will work better for her schooling, because a lot of her live lessons with her class are in the mornings. Plus, Josh can join us at the gym! New gym and new class has my sweet little beast excited to say the least!!! And for those who are SO worried about Zoe’s socialization…three things 1. she goes to the gym for over 2 hours a day 7 days a week and plays with children her own age. 2. She has classmates that she talks with regularly as well as pen pals from the different friends she has made in the cities we have lived in. 3. Forced association is not socialization. As if the social skills she have been developing will just stop progressing if she doesn’t attend public school?  This is a ridiculous assumption. Most kids don’t need to be taught how to play and socialize.  We are by nature social animals and seek out connections with others. I assure you that Zoe is probably above and beyond most children her age in social skills ha ha. She is a talker and will stop anyone to make a new friend. You can keep your worries at bay. As her mother, I have done my research and I do know what is best for her 😉

I had a TON of people sign up in the last month during my sale. I am so excited to welcome you all to Team SBSC. I strive to help you achieve progress and an overall love for yourself! For those who missed the sale, sorry I am sure I will have another one in the future. Right now I am pretty booked, but always welcome those who are ready to commit to making changes. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Look in the mirror and don’t feel that the person looking back is the real you. Know that you can do and be more with the right guidance. Are looking for a program that is not cookie cutter and can adjust to your life, job, family, time, and equipment. If you think you would be a good fit with Team SBSC or have questions, feel free to CLICK HERE to find out more.

I always encourage you to set your own monthly or weekly goals. Make them realistic and small steps to help you achieve your main goals. Make a list and keep it visible to help you stay accountable. I hope y’all fared well this past month!!!


SBSC Fit Tip: Flaxseed Oil Benefits Fat Loss, Heart Health, Joint Health & More#PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

For those not in the know, flax is a plant.

The seeds are high in fiber and commonly used whole, cracked, and ground for baking. According to the Thomas Jefferson Agricultural Institute, a flax seed is about 40% oil by weight. Of this oil, 55% of it is omega-3 fatty acid.

A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids can benefit you greatly in many, many ways.

Everything from burning stored body fat, healthy heart, healthy skin, proper brain function, to joint health.  Omega-3s are an important component of almost all of your cell membranes; therefore, sufficient amounts of these fatty acids are necessary and need to be balanced to maintain good health. The “3” in Omega-3s refers to the major types of fatty acids that are consumed in foods and used by our body: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Flaxseed oil supplementation combined with sensible diet has also been found to be beneficial to people suffering from high cholesterol levels. It has been linked to a decreased risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome, since it reduces the amount of fat and glucose in the blood. People suffering from cardiovascular disease and hypertension have also found relief from their symptoms and facilitated healing through supplementation with flaxseed oil. Flaxseed oil reduces inflammation in the joints, skin and kidneys. This is especially awesome for those who suffer from inflammation associated with gout, lupus, and fibrocystic breasts. It also has phenomenal skin healing properties fr those who suffer from acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and even sunburn. The Omega-3s actually benefit not just your skin, but your hair and nails as well!


Saturn Supplement’s Flaxseed Super Omega Food is Cold-Pressed, meaning that no external heat is applied during extraction of the flaxseed seeds. Making it one of the best on the market!

I take it 3 times a day during contest prep to make sure that I am supplying my body with EFA’s and that I look and feel my best come show time!!!

SBSC Fitness Motivation Monday No More Excuses! Make This Your Week!!! #BuildWithThePowerOfTheUniverse @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!!!

My family and I are headed out tomorrow morning. In case you missed the memo, we are relocating to Phoenix, Arizona.

We are always excited for our new adventures!!! This one we get a HUGE city to play in and all the hiking one can dream of!!! We do love being surrounded by mountains ha ha. Just like last year, I am moving during contest prep. It does make things a little more difficult. I am currently carb cycling, so had to prep all my meals in baggies for the next two days to make sure I don’t miss any meals. We will be staying in a hotel tomorrow night and getting into our ne apartment on Wednesday. Luckily Tuesday is just two rounds of cardio (morning session and night session) and abs, which makes things a bit easier. Wednesday I will use the hotel gym to get my morning cardio in then use the new apartment gym in the evening for back training and more cardio. Thursday we will be joining a new gym and doing a ton of unpacking! Although it seems that we always have a lot on our plate, we lead a very productive life. We are always moving ahead!!! We are still working towards some huge goals and that will never change. We have no regrets and are excited with every new chapter!!!

This week is YOUR week for change! It is YOUR week to start anew! What is your goal? Why are you here? Let’s get you on the ladder to success and help you start seeing results in the areas you want the most!!! Just a reminder, this is the final week for the SBSC Fitness half off sale.

SBSC Fit Tip: Get Tight, Get Toned #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

The top goal most of my clients seem to have is to lose fat and get tight and toned. This is a great goal! Being lean, healthy, and toned not only is a boost to your self esteem, but also your overall health as well.

There are however, some misconceptions that I would like to clear up.

Being toned doesn’t necessarily mean weighing less. One thing I try to stress to clients is that fat loss doesn’t always equal weight loss. Especially when you are starting to grow muscle. Muscle is more dense than fat. The scale is a minor tool used to observe progress. I stress to always take weekly photos. Measurements are great too! The scale can be helpful, but it can also be detrimental. We have been preprogramed to step on the scale to see if we are getting results. I often find that the scale doesn’t show me anything but an inconsistent number. Your weight fluctuates throughout the day and things like hormones, water weight, having to poop, time of day, stress, sleep or lack there of, etc. can all affect the scale. Even though I do use it as a tool, I always celebrate non scale victories more!!!

You can not spot reduce. As much as I wish this was a thing, spot reducing just doesn’t exist. You can not do 1000 crunches a day in hopes that it will lean out your stomach, or 50 body weight squats while watching tv in hopes that it will lean out your booty. The only way to lose fat is pure and simple calorie deficit. No, I do not mean to put yourself on a starvation diet. There is a science to nutrition. each person is different and what macro-nutrients work for one person may not work for another. You still need food to fuel your body. If you aren’t healthy, you won’t get results. Fat loss happens in each individual differently. For example, my legs and glutes are always the last things to lean out. That is where I hold most of my body fat. Some people lean out from the extremities in, meaning their legs and arms will get lean before their torso. It comes down to genetics. No matter how you lean out, just keep going and it will all get there!!!

Weight training or muscles will make you bulky. This is one I battle with many of my female clients. For women, building large muscles is very difficult. Seriously, it’s actually hard for men to grow large muscles. Growing or bulking up has a lot to do with diet. To grow like most women are afraid to, it would take a huge increase in calories. Now that we are past that, muscles are important if you want the toned look. Without muscles, you are just skin and bone. If you like that look, I certainly am not bashing it. Some prefer to be just skinny. To each their own. When I talk with some of my female clients about their overall goals and I ask them what they are looking for, I have had a few actually send me photos of fitness models. They want to have toned arms and legs, lean stomachs, and perky butts. To have these things, muscles are important.

One of the biggest benefits to having muscles is increased fat loss!!! Yes, grow muscles, lose fat. For me, that is a no brainer!!! The more muscle your body has, the more calories it burns. Remember when I said, to get lean you need to be in a calorie deficit? Well the more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism runs. What does this mean? Well this means, you can eat more while in a calorie deficit. I don’t know about you, but being able to eat more AND lose fat is a pretty cool thing!!! Burning calories, just for having muscle… um Sign me up!!!

Obviously growing muscle doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, discipline, consistency, and most of all patience. I am often asked if supplements help? The answer is yes, with certain goals supplements can be important.  One supplement I love to recommend is Saturn Supplement’s Outer Limits. It is an all in one Muscle Fuel Complex. It has all your muscle building amino acids, thermo-energizers for fat loss, digestive enzymes, electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, and essential key nutrients to help boost the loss of fat and growth of lean muscle.

kimg1178Everything is pre-packaged. I LOVE that they do this! It makes it easy to grab and go. I personally lead a very active lifestyle, so being able to just throw a packet in my gym bag and run out the door is awesome! It saves me time from having to count out pills and put them in a holder.


Another thing you never have to worry about with Saturn’s products is quality. They ship your products to your door fast and they are of the BEST quality!!! I have been using Saturn’s products for over 4 years and hands down have not found any company that can hold a candle to Saturn’s quality, freshness, results, and amazing customer service. There is s reason they have been doing this for well over 25 years! They truly know their stuff! To be able to get and use products that are used by elite athletes worldwide, it’s a pretty big deal!

Be sure to check out there huge selection!

SBSC Fitness Monday Motivation! #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!!!

A lot more new faces this week! I’m very excited and honored that you chose SBSC Fitness to help guide you on your journey! Every Monday I make a motivational post, just to get us geared up for the coming week and to keep myself accountable for my own journey.

This week is a busy one. If you have been following me on here or social media, you know that my family is on the move again! We are now headed to the Phoenix, Arizona area. My husband has a senior management opportunity with a company and we just couldn’t pass it up! We have family and several friends there, so it is just a great move for all of us. We are very excited!!!

Some might be asking if I am still going to compete in the Las Vegas Classic on November 5th. The answer is ABSOLUTELY! I have been training hard for this competition. The drive is just over 4 hours, so just a short road trip away.

Seems we are moving by the end of the week, so I have a lot on my plate. My training takes 3-4 hours split between two sessions, Zoe has school with me for 2-3 hours, I have a full load of clients, and I am trying to get this house packed and cleaned. Needless to say, I am not bored ha ha ha ha.

Like I said before motivation Monday is a great way to get some positive thoughts running through your head. Mondays have a bad rap. Most people looks at it as ugh Monday is here, time to get back to work. If you change that negative to a positive, Mondays become the base of starting an awesome week! Today let’s not make it an Oh no it’s Monday day, let’s make it an Okay Monday show me what you got, kind of day!

As always, I like to kick things off with a little Lady Swole Monday…


You will want to make excuses. Trust me, there are days when I have NO interest in training or tracking my foods, but my end goal is something I want SO bad. On those days, I sit down and I think about why I started. I look back at how far I have come. These thoughts and desires fuel me. They light a fire in me that makes me want to train harder. That feeling of “man, I just don’t want to go.” or “Ugh, my body hurts so bad.” Those thoughts go away and I just go do what needs to be done. Those day I usually end up training more fierce than the days that I look forward to the gym. Never forget you WHY. Never forget why you started. And most importantly, stop looking at how far you need to go and look at how far you have already come!!!

If you are not a part of my program, then what are you waiting for!?!? The price for a certified personal trainer doesn’t get any lower than this and this price will only be available till the end of the month!!! SIGN UP TODAY

SBSC Fit Tip: Glutamine Not Just For Recovery #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the body. Known for it’s benefits in the fitness industry such as, supports muscle growth, decreased muscle waste, increased endurance, as well as growth and recovery support.

However, the benefits list for Glutamine is much greater and more valuable than most realize! Let’s take a look at the top benefits for L-Glutamine.

Arthritis & Joint Health ~ Doctors have begun adding glutamine to arthritis treatments, because of it’s ability to repair damaged cartilage tissues due to age-related joint degeneration. It can also help by providing increased energy and immunity necessary to fight the disease and perform daily functions.

Depression ~ As a depression treatment It has proven to be an innovative approach in addressing various forms of depression and mood swings without the use of drugs. According to multiple studies L-Glutamine health benefits contribute to enhanced nervous system functions, increases more positive outlook and removes toxic ammonia wastes from the brain tissues.

Diabetes ~ Glutamine effectively aids in glucose utilization keeping blood sugar levels under control. It’s health benefits also reduce the likelihood of insulin resistance in individuals consuming diets excessively high in fats.

Irritable Bowel Symptom ~ For irritable bowel syndrome, the treatment is one of the most effective natural approaches in addressing diarrhea and poor digestion.  L-Glutamine works by repairing gastrointestinal lining and promoting healthier nutrient absorption.

Brain Health ~ It has actually been dubbed “Brain Food”. Glutamine boosts brain function by increasing glutamic acid and gamma-aminobutyric acid, which are two of the most important neurotransmitters located in the brain. By increasing neurotransmission, the brain is able to complete important functions more efficiently.

Saturn Supplement’s Glutamine Body Protect is a natural fortifying source of l-glutamine. The best quality glutamine to replenish, recover, protect, and fortify.

My nutrition has been changing constantly. Last week and this week I have been reloading, which I don’t mind in the least. I do love my carbs ha ha. Next week I will be back to carb cycling. My body actually responds really well to it. The changes this year in my physique have been insane!

SBSC Fit Tips: Beauty Boosting Tips #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

When talking about making healthy improvements, I always mean overall.

Being healthy from the inside out is important. When you start to make changes in your diet and exercise routine, you not only change the shape of your body, but the shape that your hair, skin, and nails are in as well!

When I started my journey, my skin was mess and my hair not much better. My hair was so bad, I had cut it all off. Making improvements in those areas has been important to me, as I am sure it is with most aging women. In the past 6 years I have made huge strides, not only in my physique, but also with the texture of my skin, the strength of my nails, and both in regards to my hair.

My husband says I have been reverse aging and looking back on pics, I think he may be right! I do have some tried and true beauty tips that I have been following over the past few years.

One ~ Drink Tons Of Water ~ Water is essential to maintaining optimum skin moisture and delivering essential nutrients to the skin cells. It replenishes your skin tissue and increases its elasticity. Helping delay the appearance of signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. I personally drink anywhere from 1-2 gallons a day. To some that is in excess, but you must keep in mind I train for over 2 hours daily, so my body loses a ton of water through sweat.

Two ~ A Great Multi Vitamin ~ What you put into your body shows on the outside. I actually take 2 different supplements for my hair skin and nails. Both are from Saturn Supplement’s Athena Women’s Series. The first one is Saturn’s Vita-Bites Fruit Chews. They are a natural multivitamin supplement that’s designed to provide women with a source of daily nutrients that’s as delicious as it is nutritious. I add this in, to cover any missed nutrients in my diet. Each serving includes a host of vital nutrients such as Biotin, Choline, Folic Acid and Vitamin D-a complex that assists with health-optimization for heart, eye and immunity.


The Second one is Saturn’s Beauty-3. This stuff is miracle in a bottle! It has a host of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and energizing herbals provide the body with an extensive range of beauty to health optimizing benefits that range from cell-fighting age-defense protection to strong, healthy and shiny hair-skin-nails beautification. It is one of my favorite supplements, based on results!!!


Three ~ My Moisturizing Coffee Scrub ~ I love my homemade moisturizing coffee scrub! I have been using it for a little over a year now and my skin’s overall look and texture and improved 10 fold. It is a simple recipe. This amount lasts a few weeks. 3 tbsp used coffee grounds, 1 whole egg, 1 tbsp mayo w/ olive oil, 1 tbsp olive oil. Mix well rub all over your face and neck (I actually used this last year full body before my competition to slough off all dead skin and leave a soft base before my spray tan) Leave on for about 15 mins then scrub in small circles, before rinsing. You are left with bright, soft, and supple skin. You can keep it in the fridge. I use it once to twice a week.

Four ~ My Moisturizing Hair Mask ~ This one I also have been using for quite a while and it is awesome for conditioning your dry tresses. I just coat my hair in Mayo with olive oil, wrap my head in a plastic bag and let it sit for 30-45 mins before rinsing. leaves my hair silky and shiny. You only smell like potato salad while it’s in your hair 😉 Once you rinse and wash with shampoo, there is no smell.


What are some of your favorite beauty regimes or tips? I would love to know!!!
