Growing up in a spirit-filled home, Angela Davis remembers being close with her parents and with her three younger siblings. As a family, they went to church every Sunday and spent time focusing on their faith. As her athletic career evolved and Angela ran track for the USA Track and Field Team as a five-time All-American with rankings in the 100-meter, it was always her faith that helped her though to the finish line.
Faith means the confidence or trust in one person. And as you continue to go through this 21 Days of Motivation and Movement series, you must have faith in yourself to do it. "You must have faith when times aren't perfect," says Angela, "when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. That faith is what gets you ready for what's next."
What many people do not know is that Angela struggled even after achieving so much success in her athletic career. After finding love early in college, Angela married young and found herself in a toxic relationship just a few years later. Her family conducted an intervention for her, and she realized that she had to "run to her healing." Through the exploration of her faith and her commitment to God, she was able to find healing in her skills as an athlete. Once again, her faith carried her through to the other side.
So often we have a goal or a plan for ourselves and before we even take the first step we've already talked ourselves out of it. We must believe that we are capable and we must have faith to eliminate all of the negative and nagging thoughts. We must push through.
For this workout, Angela shows us how to do a BRIDGE WITH ALTERNATING LEG LIFTS. The one-minute workout begins when the clock starts.
