Today we are speaking with the Founder of Train Like A Gymnast, Wilhelmina Fitness Model, Certified Personal Trainer Danielle Gray. Danielle is a formerly competitive Junior Olympic gymnast who retired from the sport before college. After graduating from the University of Southern California in Public Relations, she worked full-time at a digital marketing agency and part-time as a gymnastics coach. Once she realized she forgot she was getting paid for coaching, she turned down a promotion at her desk job and pursued personal training and fitness modeling. She founded her own company, Train Like A Gymnast, to show people how much more capable they are. Her training style is challenging, yet approachable with a heavy focus on form, mindfulness, and intention. She is also a Wilhelmina Fitness Model, an iFit Trainer, a Ninja Warrior, an aerialist, among many other things. If you follow her on Instagram, you can see her adventures with acro, pole dance, travel, and walking her cat Zara.

In this episode we discuss:

1)  What it feels like to trust yourself, trust in your body and even trust yourself in business.  When you don’t trust yourself it can look like bailing, pausing for a long time, overthinking, afraid of failing and lots of mind chatter.  When you trust yourself it’s silent, this feeling or knowing of “I’ve got this.”

2) “Be willing to stay with the suck.” Don’t push the uncomfortable feelings away or avoid them.  Nothing will change by doing that.  Learn to feel the emotions and face the discomfort head on, knowing that everything is temporary.   Our uncomfortable moments can lead us to positive changes by removing something that isn’t working.

3) Suicidal ideations and the struggle and mental health journey that involved feelings of suicide.  Danielle was incredibly vulnerable sharing her experience as well as the avocado tattoo that she got to remind her that the light can always hold the darkness, even when the darkness doesn’t go away. Feelings are temporary and seeing, feeling and recognizing them has allowed Danielle to learn to move through her emotions as opposed to avoiding them.

4) Danielle’s words on how to learn to let go of the need to control her emotions, and this quote was so powerful, “When you try to control what is outside of your control, it ends up controlling you.”  By learning to feel her emotions as opposed to avoiding them, it has allowed her give others permission to do the same and realize that they are not alone.
