welcome to my website!

Welcome to my website!

I’m very excited to share my background in the fitness industry with you and how it has brought me to where I am now, incorporating energy work and sacred prayer with fitness and nutrition. I have 19 years of experience in various wellness industry positions. I started my career at age 19 as a personal trainer, and since then I have worked in a variety of environments which have allowed me to experience many aspects (both healthy and not so healthy) of fitness, nutrition & healing. For 7 years I was immersed in the competitive body building world where I took first place in the flex bikini competition and placed top three in nationals. My ultimate goal was to use my dedication, drive, stamina, and deep devotion to make myself the best possible version of myself. Never giving up, going beyond normal, testing my limits was fun and exciting….but something was missing.

Despite how much I trained, worked out, and devoted all my energy to fitness and my image, I was unhealthy and my body was shutting down. My digestion was shot, I was experiencing some major digestion issues and I couldn’t do it anymore. I had adrenal fatigue and I was exhausted. I couldn’t deeply communicate with my body and I didn’t know how to listen to the messages my body was telling me. How do you train with no nutrition in your body? How do you train disconnected from your intuition, that voice that says “this is too much”? Despite all the knowledge I had of training, dieting and always learning the new fitness fads, it wasn’t enough. I had a deeper calling; I began searching for something missing that I hadn’t found yet. Something more.

I needed to heal myself and I started learning as much about healing as possible from everywhere I could. I have traveled the world training in Core and Cellular Healing for 11 years and I received an honorary Certification and Induction in Ancient Celtic Cellular Transformation Studies in Ireland. This form of ancient healing is nature-based and incorporates movements, sacred prayer, and ceremony to release any blockages and anything unhealthy at a cellular level. The goal is to transform anything negative into creativity, fresh new energy, health, and love. In essence: the best version of ourselves.

I am guided to merge the worlds of fitness and energy together. I feel there are so many aspects of both worlds that are important, yet somehow, they are rarely combined or considered together. For me, it is all about reading the energy and connecting to spirit and myself. Fitness and eating healthy now comes second nature and I don’t even have to think about it. There is less pressure. Everything has changed in my body because I listen to my body. This is what I offer clients, how to deeply listen to your own inner voice so you can tap into that best version of yourself and bring it forth!

I am a facilitator of sacred energy and healing transmissions. My workouts are healing sessions that incorporate fitness and I’m guided by nature, divine beings of love and of god, and spirit. These beings assist and guide me in what needs to happen in sessions. I get information about each client I work with through intuition and deep listening. I listen to each client deeply and often they will tell me exactly what they need in some way, whether verbally or non-verbally. The information about what we need to release and what we are ready to let go of is all available in the energetic field.

We are nature and everything we need to heal comes from nature or the divine which exists in each of us. I assist clients in connecting deeper with themselves and their own inner knowing. Sometimes all we need is a change, a change in location, a change in relationship, whatever it is, to get the energy flowing in the best possible way and connect to more life force energy.

One of my favorite aspects of Fitness & Healing is understanding energy and what your body is communicating with you, how to heal and overcome physical and emotional challenges. I am certified in Personal training, Yoga, Paddle boarding, Meditation, and Core and Cellular healing. I have a passion for teaching others how to access their intuition skills that will allow them to grow personally, spiritually & professionally.

When I am not coaching, teaching or facilitating I enjoy spending most of my time outdoors in nature, on the water surfing, in my garden with my plants, and traveling the world and connecting with all cultures, medicines ,and stories. I also love to travel, turn my phone off and go off grid.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me and the work I offer.

Welcome to my website and my life,

Shawn Flanigan Interview

My first Interview after exploring the beautiful land of Ireland for 3 months. Shawn Flanigan is an artist based in Cork Ireland. His designs are an exploration of shape, color and the underlying geometry of the universe.  Shawn Flanigan has spent a number of years researching and studying Sacred Geometry, Cymatics and Fractal Mathematics and all these disciplines help him in creating these colorful and intricate designs.

Teaching Yoga & Fitness with Sand Sisters – LA

It’s in giving that you receive.. I just received a thank you card from the girls who attended the Sand Sisters Event in Santa Monica, CA  this summer where I volunteered teaching yoga & fitness on the beach.  It made my day.  I strive to be a positive role model for teens, teaching them self respect and to stay true to their hearts.  I strive to promote healthy environments & groups for girls to be a part of everywhere. Check out this fun video when I was teaching yoga & fitness with Sand Sisters LA.

Triple Spiral: Rejuvenate, Sculpt, Maintain

After returning from my third trip to the beautiful Isles of Ireland and Scotland,  I have a lot to share with you about what i’ve learned. First, I want to  start with the Celtic Triple Spiral, why I love it & why you’ll see it repeatedly in my writings and fitness programs.

I personally believe that the Triple Spiral remains relevant to the rapid changes and cycles in modern society.  I love life so much that I can go 1,000 miles an hour and get off balanced. Sound familiar?  When my life lacks balance, it usually leads to a physical burnout.  That’s why I created The MT3 Fitness & Nutrition system.   After years of working with clients i realized I ‘m not the only one who burns out, gains weight and feel out of balance. Has this happened to you? If so,  my best advise is to avoid the self sabotage thoughts, stress & panic and get right back onto the rejuvenation plan & slow down.

Life is always changing.  Just like the seasons every year, your body’s want and needs are also changing. People who are not able to adjust sufficiently to the changing seasons or life get sick. While other people learn to adapt, some people are not able to and the seasons & life take its toll on their bodies and wellbeing.

The best way to adapt is to give the body the best care it needs at the current moment. This requires that you learn to listen and act on the body’s current needs.

How to lose 100 pounds

In this video  I had the chance to interview Salena Hofer. She shares how to lose 100 pounds. She did it by her self at the age of 17.  She decided to take action to feel better in her body and gain confidence.  She set a goal to lose 30 pounds and felt great. She continued her healthy lifestyle and the weight continued to melt off.  Watch the interview and learn her simple lifestyle changes  she made to successfully fit into her prom dress and changed her life. She loved being told by guy’s that she was strong.

How I Recovered From Adrenal Fatigue

I am an extremist and at times, I have been known to push myself so hard that I actually end up making myself sick!  There came a time where I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. I literally would walk to the car and I’d be exhausted, I would go to the gym and I would force myself to do things, yet I had no energy at all. I was eating healthy and yet I seemed to be gaining weight, I honestly couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. I finally went to the doctors and my doctor told me that I had Adrenal Fatigue.

Getting Motivated At The Coliseum

Hi everyone, it’s so crazy to think that just last week, I was in Italy walking the grounds of the Coliseum.  Now, I find myself back in California and thinking about the wonderful time I had while traveling abroad.

I left the US in early December to head to Sarjevo, Bosnia where I would be studying and hosting my MT3 Fitness & Nutrition Workshop. After several weeks in Bosnia I was leaving to head back home to the US. Well, there was such horrendous fog that my flight home kept getting cancelled. I finally got on a new flight that would have a connection in Rome.  At the time, it seemed like a huge inconvenience.  However, the more I thought about it, the more of a blessing it was.  I thought to myself that if I was going to have to have a layover there, I might as well spend a few days in Rome and that’s just what I did.
