CALYSTA’S NUTRITION ADVICE
"Simple is key!! Once you find foods you enjoy keeping them consistent in your daily routine makes sticking to a plan much easier. It’s easy to overthink nutrition which is why I stick with a few basics I like.”
CALYSTA’S TRAINING ADVICE
"Listen to your body and give it the recovery it needs. What we do outside of the gym to allow our bodies to heal and muscles replenish is just as important as in the gym. During training, form trumps weight! If you’re doing things incorrectly you could easily injure yourself.”
