The Development of Strong with Sivan Approach

My strength training observations and feelings along the past 14 years in a chronological order: I don't want to look like a man, but this lifting game is fun ⬇️ Wow I gained some muscle; I like it ⬇️ I kinda have an idea of what I'm doing ⬇️ Yay. More muscle mass; I can eat more ⬇️ Damn, my ass looks good; I love my broad shoulders and lats. I do not look like a dude😏 ⬇️ I feel so strong; I don't care what others say. This ‘muscular’ look is feminine to ME ⬇️ Strength training is my drug of choice ⬇️ I want others to feel what I feel ⬇️ I better educate myself ⬇️ My clients are improving; they look better ;move better; feel better ⬇️ Strength training is the foun

Progressively Overloading Your Habits

“ Just write me a workout program” is akin to “just tell me what to eat and I’ll follow your meal plan”. Both aren’t going to truly help the client, and are a matter of ‘instant gratification’ the client craves. The role of trainers/ coaches is to understand what the clients *want*, but give them what they *need*. Here’s why: 1. There are literally thousands of free programs on the internet for free. Why would you want a trainer to write you a program when you’re not proficient with the form and exercise execution? When you first learn how to strength train and perform the basic movement patterns( assuming you hired a competent coach), you realize there are lots of nuances to every exercis


"I knew I needed a trainer when I bent over to pick up my one-month old grandson and could not straighten up. Sivan was the perfect solution. I already knew that strength training was the way to go, especially for women. My work schedule was crazy, and she worked around my availability. And she made me commit to working out twice a week with her, which was absolutely necessary. We started out slow, and I began to realize how so many things that I did in my everyday life was contributing to my bad back and hip. Sivan was patient, upbeat, and encouraging at every session. Even when I started out tired, I was energized at the end of each session. Sivan knew a million ways to accomplish an exerc

Love Yourself

Love your body, regardless where you currently stand as far as aesthetics and physique goals. Loving your body doesn’t mean you’re being complacent, or accepting your body as is; it means you’re operating from a place of compassion and appreciation for your body, for all the sh*t you’ve put it through throughout the years. It means you value your body, and when you value something you invest in it. This means growth, This means getting stronger, This means getting fitter, This means wanting to be ‘more’, not ‘less’. Best of all- this means you grow as a person on the inside as you’re gaining strength on the outside. My ultimate goal as a fellow woman and a coach is to help YOU

How to Structure your Diet to Promote Adherence

I’ve been on a fat loss diet for the past 4 weeks. We all know desserts are forbidden when our goal is fat loss because the calories from the fat and sugar specifically increase fat deposits. JK. I'm just trying to test you 😉 I posted this *mouthgasm* yesterday on my IG story, and was asked how come I’m able to eat this high calorie dessert if I’m on a diet. Here’s the thing- yes, this is a caloric bomb, but I *planed* for it. We know we need to create a caloric deficit to lose fat. We also know that cycling calories is a way to sustain a deficit without eating the same amount of calories each day. So, if I need around ~1900 calories/day to create a deficit, I make sure that by the en

If You Have Fat Loss or Muscle Goals....

Listen, There is no deadline. Stop putting your body on a deadline. 'I need to lose x amount of weight in x amount of time'. 'I only lost 1 lbs this week, what am i doing wrong ?' (nothing) 'I need to change, and I need to change quickly because I want to see fast results'. You know what? Slow progress is still progress. Slow progress is more likely to stick. And good habits are what going to stick for the long term (and isn't that what you want? You want *long* term results, not *a few months* results ...) You see, habits take time to acquire because they take repetitions, just like those repetitions you put in the gym. So ,there is NO rush. Enjoy the process of improving yourself. Slow and

Strong with Sivan Approach

I’m all for self love and loving your body. However, I’m not for body acceptance. If we were to just accept our bodies as they are, we would be accepting growing weaker every year that goes by, becoming immobile and stiff, gaining weight, and subsequentially—> unhealthy and unhappy as a result. we definitely don’t want that. We want to strive for improvement. We want to strive to make our bodies better than they were ‘meant to be’. We want to get our bodies strong. We want to get our bodies fitter, healthier, more mobile. We want our bodies to reflect our values when we value HEALTH. Aesthetics benefits will come along the way too, these are just the additional perks. But the real

Automating Your Nutrition Is Key

We all have a limited amount of will power. The secret to making a diet work for you is to reduce the amount of decisions you make on a daily basis. The less you need to decide about what to eat in each meal, the more convenient the diet is for you. Thus, you’d be more likely to stick with it. This is the reason why meal plans work so well for people. There is no thinking involved, there’s just following the menu. However, 2 aspects of why following prescribed meal plans isn’t a great idea : 1. Prescribed meal plan don’t take your individuality and preferences into consideration. Meaning if a meal plan calls for 6 meals per day, or a chicken for lunch; but you definitely don’t have time to
