  • I Don't Give a Flux

    July 16th, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    We discussed our relationship with the scale in the last blog post (you can read that HERE if you missed it.) And today I want to explore that a bit more, as it pertains to fluctuation in the number that appears.  I can't tell you how many times women will step on the scale in my office and scream...

  • You Weigh WHAT?!

    June 28th, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    When you’re a gym owner, your clients’ relationship with the scale is a constant topic of conversation, especially with women. But lately it's been coming up even more than usual.  Maybe it's because summer is here and we’re by default wearing less and noticing our physique a little more.

  • Open Heart. Big Fence.

    March 30th, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    A couple of weeks back, I shared my experience of numbing out for almost 10 years because I thought I was “too much”.  I got flooded with responses of, “OMG, me too!” Or, “This is exactly me, I just never knew how to put it into words.”  But the biggest response I got was a question...

  • Too Much

    March 9th, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    Let me set the scene, because I have a feeling a few of you may have experienced something similar.  Growing up, on several occasions and in a myriad of ways I somehow got the message that I was "too much".  I have an amazing family...

  • Unapologetic in my Evolution

    February 23rd, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    At 5 am yesterday, I flew into Vegas to spend the weekend holed up in a house with 5 of my chosen sisters for a long weekend mastermind.  Will it be a blast?  Ummm, for sure.  But there will also be an enormous amount of work getting done.  See, these women have been instrumental in my evolution.

  • Owning Your Worth By Setting Boundaries

    February 23rd, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    I got tons of feedback from last week’s blog post and podcast replay. It turns out, several of you felt you could relate to the burn out that led to many of my health challenges. I got lots of questions around ways to stop it before it becomes a problem and how to gain the support of others around you. The answer? Boundaries.

  • Self-Care is Self Preservation

    February 2nd, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    The last week has been overwhelming, to say the least. The words “numb” and “paralyzed” have come up multiple times in conversations I’ve had. It feels like every way we look on the web or in the media, there is division, uncertainty, negativity and hate. It's easy to let those things creep in and really wreak havoc on your spirit, on your energy...

  • Checking Privilege to Embrace Empathy

    January 25th, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    My mission with Grit & Gratitude is to get women talking - all of us.  To have the tough conversations most of us avoid or feel uneasy about, and to cover the topics we struggle with in silence because of shame. By being open to each other's differences in opinions and beliefs...

  • Tears in the Target Fitting Room

    January 6th, 2017 by Rachel Graves


    I wanted to knock on the door and hug you both. I wanted to cry with you and tell you that it was alright. Maybe say the things that women say - that this is a phase we all go through and that you'd come out on the other side. I wanted to scour the store for the little girl with puffy eyes and say something, anything...
