Fitness Finesse

This year I am so excited to announce a new blog series where I ask amazing women about their lives, their professions and ask their advice to help make your life sweeter in every facet.   

To kick off this new series, I got the opportunity to interview fitness professional Siera Capesius about fitness, setting goals and style:Siera Capesius

How did you get into fitness?

My true passion for health started when I was 18 years old and I wanted to become more educated about nutrition and the benefits of foods. I became so fascinated that I decided to get my degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics. In 2013 I decided to take my workouts to a whole new level and I entered into a bikini fitness competition. Gaining muscle was not an easy task, and it was even more challenging at the time, because did not know how to lift properly and was scared to increase my max lifting weight. This process took a lot of PATIENCE and I had to educate myself about the proper lifting techniques. Through the process I learned about different training styles and the importance of sets, reps, and split workout routines. This did not happen in just a couple of months, it took years for me to finally see the muscle definition I wanted.

What do you listen to when you work out? 
I love listening to the Pandora stations 90's Mix or Justin Bieber.
Do you have any advice for making New Years Resolutions?
Making New Years resolutions can be difficult to follow. Tips for following through with a resolution is to set a goal, figure out how you will achieve that goal, and also set an end date. When you have a set deadline this will help keep you accountable.
How would you describe your style? 
I would describe my style as unique and artsy. I love different trends metallic fabrics, leathers, sparkles, and fad fashions. In the gym, I like to call myself the 'fitness fashionista'. I have a wide variety of gym outfits from all over the world and am always looking for something no one else owns. 
What trend do you love right now?
The trend I love right now is the over sized shirts, chokers, bomber jacket, and faux fur. This current style brings me back to the 90's when I was a child!
