Everyone knows relationships can be hard, everyone knows fitness competitions are hard. Combine the two and well, things can get interesting. We have been through 4 competitions together 🏆and this is the first time knowing each other not in prep! Stress, mood swings, selfishness, pure dedication, 110% effort and no slip ups. It all takes a toll on the relationships around you. But those that truly love you will understand your deepest passions and goals. 💕 We are so lucky that we both share the same love for health/fitness. To push and motivate each other on those days you just don't "feel it", "too tired", "not enough time". To get through the toughest times both during and off prep. We respect each other's goals enough to not watch one fail and to not cut each other slack, holding each other in high regards. From the meal prepping, listening to fitness podcasts, training, and dying on cardio together, it really is an amazing feeling when you have a PARTNER who understands, as most people don't truly "get it". Thanks for making it all a smidge easier babe. I love crushing our goals together just about as much as I love you 😉❤️
We met 10 years ago when I lived in Germany. Our relationship was full of ups and downs but I sure don't regret it. This was us on our last roadtrip together in Italy before I moved back to the US. He is now living in Berlin with a wonderful boyfriend whom I had the pleasure meeting when they visited NYC. I am truly happy for him. As for me, well, I'm still bouncing around places.

Women really do notice that guys pay attention to the small details. If you don't do the small things, how can you be trusted with the big things?
Segundo John Gottman, a resposta para esse mito do casamento é não! Todos nós temos problemas que não somos totalmente racionais sobre. Nós chamamos de "vulnerabilidade duradoura". Elas não necessariamente interferem no casamento se você aprender a reconhecer e evitar startar um no outro. Por exemplo, Sam tem problemas de lidar com autoridade, ele odeia ter um chefe. Se ele casar com uma parceira controladora, o resultado será desastroso! Mas ao contrário, ele é feliz e casado com a Megan que trata ele de igual para igual e não tenta domina-lo, não startando essa vulnerabilidade dele. Neuroses e problemas de personalidade não tem que arruinar um relacionamento. Se você conseguir lidar com carinho, afeição e respeito o casamento pode funcionar. Problemas mentais sérios são outra questão. #mito#casamento#vidadecasada#marriedlife#relacionamentoadois#relationshipgoals#coachingparamulheres#conselheiraamorosa#elisagrabovski
“Since decades, I’ve woken up early to make tea for my wife -- she has her cuppa in bed and has such a big smile on her face...it’s been the best way to start my day. Honestly, I still can’t believe I got her to love me -- it was a task to find someone to put up with me, but she’s not only been with me for 48 years, but loved me to pieces through everything -- what a woman she is!”
“So what advice would you give a large group of people?”
“A good woman by your side will make your life. I don’t know about about these guys, but I’m here, taking a walk and exercising because it’s a rule my wife made! I crib about it, but I actually feel a lot healthier! Trust me, the best thing I can tell you is this -- keep your wife happy for the first 2 hours of the day, and the rest of the 22 will go by hassle free -- it’s not even advice, it’s science...it works every single time!”
