Today I am sitting down with personal trainer, yoga teacher, and entrepreneur Tara Laferrara. Tara is a businesswoman with a passion for fitness and wellness. She’s the founder of the TL Method, co-owner of Compass Fitness in Denver, Co-Founder of Beach Movement Balance and co-host of her own podcast, the A-Cup Podcast! She’s also been featured in or has worked with a number of brands from Shape and Women’s Health Magazine to RedBull and FinishLine.
We’ll be chatting about how to find balance and regain strength, two facets of life that we seek whether we’re in the gym or battling our day-to-day work routines. Tune in now below!
Fitness and wellness is first nature to Tara. Being a teammate has grown her passion for it along the way and her inspiration to help the fitness journey of the people around her to move their body (1:30.)
Tara shares how important it is to make time for yourself each day. Carving out an hour each day for you whether it be mediation, mindfulness or movement (2:25.)
When change gets thrown in your way how can you stay the course in your own health and wellness journey? Practicing self-care to set-up yourself for success. This is especially important during the holiday season. If you take care of yourself first everything else will flow (3:50).
Tara believes that fitness is movement, eating, nutrition and mindset. Tara’s TL Method embodies this with a focus in movement. With everything from upper body workouts to challenge days, the TL Method is a curated program to make you feel comfortable in your body. Most important, the TL Method community, a motivational team of sorts from all over the world (5:15.)
Having trouble giving yourself time for fitness and wellness? Ask yourself, what’s your priority throughout the day? Tara recommends to literally add it to your busy calendar to help make time. That is YOUR time! (8:30.)
Want to get moving while sitting…right now? Okay, let’s get started. First, sit up tall and sit all the way back in your chair. Bring your shoulders up to your ears, exhale and then bring them back down. Next, use your breath and gently twist to the right and left in your chair (11:30.)
Want to continue following Tara’s story? She has her own podcast as well! Be sure to check out the A-Cup Podcast, a conversation between her and her best friend about female entrepreneurship (14:20.)
Hitting a roadblock in your own entrepreneur venture? Ask yourself, why I am I doing this? Is it for myself or my community? (16:20.)
