A year ago, I randomly messaged my friend, Tring, after seeing her FB post hanging from monkey bars. She invited me to train with the #dragospartans and I was hooked. After much convincing, was able to get @robafzelius to try it out too and he reluctantly joined but his first love was and still is #Crossfit . Last year, I could not lift the atlas stone, climb the rope, or flip a tractor tire. Could barely lift my own weight. Rob was also just getting back to routine workouts.
A year later, with more strength training, a few sessions of Crossfit, more running--was able to slowly flip a tire, then climb a rope, then traverse the monkey bars. It helped to have supportive DragoSpartans coaches and teammates to train with every week. These guys have been doing OCR races for years and theyre nothing short of inspiring! Never knew how much progress can be had with the right training (and support!) 💪🏼
Einen wunderschönen Sonntag Morgen gewünscht ☀️🙋🏻

An amazing weekend down in Melbourne for the @icn_victoria State Champs. Walking away with 5x top 4 podium finishes 🥇🏆 A HUGGEEE thanks goes out to @reece.freeman for being the most amazing human being in the world the entire weekend. From feeding me and dealing with all the stage day drama to pumping me up till I have veins exploding out of my arms it's all him. No matter what the outcome was for the day I knew you were 100% proud of me and I couldn't ask for more. Could not ask for a more amazing support system ❤️ Time to get back on the grind for @icnqld in 2 weeks 🙈💪🏽
Gym sessions w myyy favourite 💕
Closing off the weekend w no one but my swolemate. Thank you for always being by my sideee, through the happiness and the hangriness 😙
Honestly, without you I wouldnt be this far in my 'fitness journey' at all and would most likely still be a cardio-bunny 🐰 #cheesymoment 🧀
We don’t want to be a faceless company— when you interact with us here, you’re either talking to me (@emmyohmy) or my stellar boyfriend Josh (@imjoshrogers)! 🤗 We love connecting with all of you from around the world, making friends, and featuring your incredible adventure photos! Keep being awesome guys. 🤙🏻🤙🏻 Tag @kulanaco to be featured! 🌊🏄🏻♀️
Leg depletion training and a little bit of posing practice dddoooonnnneee 👊🏻🚷✔️
Im so grateful to have @jacobsteens doing this peak week with me and both competing in not only our first show together but our first WFF Nationals event!!
This prep has without a doubt been the hardest for me due to outside factors but has also been the most enjoyable prep by far. This guy right here has kept me motivated, focused, positive and able to rise above any hurdles put in the way. It's amazing how much you can push through with the support and belief from another person
So while I'm nervous for next weekend I also can't wait. I can't wait to be able to say to myself I did it, I pushed through everything, I did what so many people doubted I could do, I worked my butt off and I set out to qualify and compete in a National event this year and have done it to the best of my ability. This sport has always been about growth and development for me. I've never been a very competitive person which I know might seem strange, but I get so much out of this sport. It's a lifestyle, a 24/7 commitment. The only person I set out to bet is the old me and I know I've done that
And in true Bonnie fashion you best believe I'm holding out for the celebratory dinner with the WFF fam and the abundance of snackie snacks that will be consumed! Gotta love being around people that not only share the same values and work ethic...but won't judge you for feeding your face...they'll just try one up you 😂🍔🍩
I just want everyone to know that the girl in this photo is the most amazing person in the entire world! I left for Texas for work and am down here for 2 weeks and she decided to jump on a plane and fly down to surprise me! Babe I just want you to know that I'm madly in love with you! I know sometimes I may be difficult or may start shit for some stupid reason or just give you a headache because it's just me but never forget that I would die for you, that I care about you more than anything, that you make me the happiest person ever, you are so amazing in every which way and I just want you to always remember I'm here for you and love you sosososososo much! XOXO❤️ #sheisperfect#inlove#love#beautiful#babe#babes#fitness#fitcouple#dallas#texas#amazing#gorgeous#cute#funny#sexy#thatbootytho#blessed
I've come across this guy a few times since we live in the same town, but I finally had the opportunity to chat with one of the baddest mother fxckers in the business at the @mrolympiallc -
This guy has not only served and given of himself for our beautiful country, but he also continues to inspire many others including myself through his drive and ambition inside and outside of the weight room. I mean the guy holds a world record for a deadlift as an amputee. How freaking bad ass is that?!-
@that1legmonster is the epitome of saying "screw you" to excuses. He could just let his daily pain take away from his quality of life, but instead he pushes through it and betters himself while also helping others in more ways than one. That is true courage and definitely something to be respected.-
Much love to you, brother. Let's lift together soon and get some videos going! Time to train with the big dogs!-
