Starting to see the light back at (almost in) the studio! We made the parking lot our playground today!! #flipyours #19libertystreet #downtownwestminstermd #fitness #wellness #getyoursweaton
A day late and 3 months of regular gym revenue short (haha...get it...but, seriously, thanks Rona!! 😝) we’re back to our Monday Badass Bright Spots postings! Make it a great day!
My version of Tico beef. MY version. Would love it if it had that delicious real lizano salsa and chayote squash. But I’ll settle for onions, peas, and a buttercup squash. 😜
It’s not an open gym but, to us, it’s the next best thing!
OPEN TODAY—5/16—FROM 9AM-1PM ❤️
You get it. A visit to Change Space always feels like a gift! 🎁 During the past two months of the physical shutdown of our space, we thank you 🙏🏼 for your continued purchases and for your dedication to our shared meditation practice. Today, we look forward to seeing you IN PERSON 😀 for both!
Good, clean retail therapy 9-1. Meditation at 12.
You can bet your bad ass that we’ve been working hard to maintain our badassery the past 6 weeks! So much so that we are soooo overdue in shouting ourselves out! So we return with our badass bright spots! Hope you’re making it a great Monday!￼
Our 19 Liberty Street location turned 2 today!
We had cake...GF, dairy-free, sugar-free cake.
Need workout gear? We would LOVE for you to shop with us! Head online to check out a variety of wellness and health items:
Our garden is growing. Faith & hope blossoms. Still.
No surprise in this statement. There shouldn’t be! I share it as a reminder. And while we’re getting closer to knowing our emancipation date here in Maryland, I encourage you to have a plan. We cannot go back. You cannot go back. I cannot go back. Perhaps we finally see that we have to act for change to happen. The last thing any one of us needs is more information. Not really. Clarification, yes. But not more. It’s not hidden in a diet. In a workout style. In a supplement. Or a piece of equipment. The answer to you finally achieving a better health status for yourself is in action. Don’t jump from diet to diet. Adhere to one. Don’t jump from fad workout to fad workout. Commit with consistent effort to strength training. Don’t ignore the need to eat vegetables. Remember what your quarantine body felt like with more sleep. Feel how a pause in our go-go-go societal pace rewarded us. So what is your plan? And, equally important, would you like our help in motivating you. Guiding you. Making sure it’s actually fun and not a grind. Flip Yours is your badass community eagerly waiting to close the social distance between us! Introduce yourself! Let’s Flip Yours!
Everything you want for yourself, for your health, everything about how you look and feel already belongs to you and is inherent in your capabilities. We need to help you just get out of your own way.
How are you staying in check while stuck at home?
Join our movement!
Abundance. Spring. Life. Faith. Hope. ...Blossoms.
So let your faith & hope be constructive! Grab construction paper. Cut out a paper flower. Write your hope, your prayer, your intent for SOMEONE ELSE on it. Fold it up, put it in an envelope, and add the stamp. Mail it to:
19 Liberty Street
Westminster, MD 21157
We will mount every flower on the huge garage door of Flip Yours Fitness & Wellness at 19 Liberty Street.
AND for the first 200 flowers we receive between April 8 and April 22, 2020, Change Space and Flip Yours Fitness & Wellness are conjoined to donate $3 to Together We Own It, a Westminster organization working to ensure every child gets to feel joy and plan on a future.
Local businesses wanting to match this pledge or piggyback on this community mindset project, reach out!
We are shining the light on positive intent and energy. Have you checked out our movement on our Change Space page?
Abundance. Spring. Life. Faith. Hope. ...Blossoms.
Let's do this!
Faith & hope blossoms.
I was applying to loans and paying business bills...and then it hit me...get back to the abundance mindset.

We are missing our people. How are you staying connected in this time?
Everything I have built here has been about community first and creating space for it, so at this time my goal is to preserve that. We will get through this. And there will be so many lessons that we will have learned when we get there.
Needing help building your new at-home routine? Structure your day around scheduled time for key foundational elements of a total wellness lifestyle. This planning tool I use with my health coaching clients may be just the thing to help you. Let me know if you have questions or would like help using it.
I had an amazing phone call with an amazing friend yesterday.
If you know me, you know that I feel things deeply—sometimes too deeply for my liking. I answered her call at a moment when I was feeling a little rough and raw. I shared my woes with my friend, then started saying all the things I knew I “should” be saying instead...all the positive talk, all the higher universal thinking.
I’m no stranger to optimism. I’m no stranger to gratitude. I’m no stranger to coaching. To being the solid touchpoint for others. I’m no stranger to even gifting the gift my friend gave me yesterday to others.
So what was it? What was the gift I received from her? What did she know I needed?
In the course of our conversation she gave me permission to just feel rough. To feel raw. To not have to explain it. Qualify it. Excuse it. Or boost it up with my optimism or my gratitude or with whatever lesson I’m to learn from this.
Her permission reminded me that it is more than OK to sit with anger as much as with ease. To express sadness as much as joy. To just feel without having to think. For truly, what is ease without discomfort. What is happiness without struggle.
Right now so many of my colleagues in this fitness and wellness space are pumping so much good stuff, good messaging, out there. It’s optimistic. It’s rich in gratitude. It’s boosting you up and hopefully giving you a touchpoint. This coaching space is incredible. And I am doing my part, too, putting my guiding effort and positive energy into our members, our team, my friends, and my family via calls and Zoom chats and texts and the like.
Perhaps you’d allow me to lay this message in the “good stuff” heap...or maybe even place that growing pile on top of the foundation of this message though...
My messy feelings and your messy feelings are allowed. Rough is allowed. Raw is allowed.
I’m not saying wallow. And I’m not encouraging only the messy stuff. I’m just saying if you’re being further emotionally challenged by reminders to breathe and be grateful and wait for the lesson, then I’m reminding you (and me!) that allowing ourselves not only the space to feel the beautiful gamut of our human emotions in the moment of feeling them, but also that allowing ourselves to practice being comfortable sharing that more vulnerable depth of ourselves is not just important to our own well-being, but also to that of those who witness our rough and raw realness.
Do I sometimes think my empathic tendency is a burden. For certain. I have cried at times and in places I would rather have not. But then I give myself permission—or sometimes need the reminder for it—to accept my emotional tendency. Accept it. No judgment. No apology. No excuse.
So, yes, breathe today. Yes, write down what you’re grateful for today. Go for a walk. Meditate. Complete a long-ago-begun project. Yes, reach out to someone who may live alone. Do all the things the posts and memes and gurus and coaches are urging us to do during this time.
We will get through this. And there will be so many lessons that we will have learned when we get there.
But give yourself permission today if you need it. Or borrow the permission that I now regift to you.
You have permission to feel the not so easily post-able feelings. To sit with the taste of your own tears. To be rough. Or raw. Or messy.
Your beautiful, complex human emotions don’t need a vaccination, prescription, or cure.
"We aren’t meant to live in isolation, we are all seeking a sense of belonging."
In this uncertain, isolating time make sure you are connecting however possible. How can we help?
Repost from Valerie Giovagnoni:
"I sure missed my community and coaching at Flip Yours Fitness & Wellness this morning, but the amazing Cari Cramer Pierce had me sweating at home this morning. Feeling great to start this Friday!
Missing our community as well!
While we have moved our studio clients trainings online for the time being, we wanted to share that today at noon, our sister store is offering meditation online.
Been wanting to sit for the first time? Kids home and need something to get into? Looking for a community to connect into during this time of "social distancing?" Come into Change Space tomorrow...or join us online via Zoom! Come online by noon. The meditation will start after a brief introduction. Then we'll have a few moments afterward for fellowship. So excited!

Are you positive?
Like...are you optimistic? I am. Certainly, I have thoughts that challenge that. Certainly, there are circumstances that make optimism a higher level to climb toward. But I'm positive. I believe in people. I believe that they are inherently good.
I believe that much of what we say and how we act is telling of deeper things within us. Including the things we struggle with, that we fear.
As this new pandemic narrative is written, I've been working to listen.
Are you listening? To what may be behind someone's need to hoard toilet paper. To hear what may be at the root of someone's angst over imposed "social distancing." To understand why apparent shortages of food is top of mind.
Most people are truly good. They may be stockpiling toilet paper because they're scared and need to control something in this time that feels out of control. They may be frustrated with home isolation because they're lonely and don't thrive without daily interaction. They may be feeling insecure about having enough food because that harkens back to childhood experience.
Even those complaining are expressing themselves more deeply behind their gripes.
The best space we can give each other in these uncertain times is so much more meaningful than 6 feet. It's the space to listen to what's behind the words. We're all navigating. We're all seeking. We're all feeling. We're doing the best we can.

In December of 2018, I had the talk that I dreaded with my doctor. When you’re overweight, you know its coming one day. It was serious, and I needed surgery. I was terrified and vowed to make some changes. Now, I’ve tried every gym and every program and nothing has seemed to work, but I was still full of hope that I could make changes. I managed to drop some weight before the surgery, but my overall physical fitness was still so bad despite “going to the gym.” Compounded to that, I had a knee injury from running that simply would not heal.
I was a mess, both mentally and physically. Then one day, I drove through downtown Westminster and saw this new gym. Flip Yours Fitness & Wellness. I thought “that is exactly what I need to do” so I reached out via Facebook. Cari invited me in for a tour and we discussed my fitness goals. She was incredibly knowledgeable and had a sense of calmness about her that was refreshing. She invited me in for an assessment and from that I knew that I need to make this a priority. Cari created a fitness plan based on my baseline and goals that also allowed me to “relearn” how to exercise. Consistent effort over time was her mantra and I was hooked!
Fast forward to now, and I feel like a completely different person. I feel strong, and I am getting stronger every day. I have lost over 100 pounds, but more importantly, I have gained confidence. I am excited to challenge myself each time I walk through those doors. I absolutely love that there isn’t a treadmill in the entire gym. I’m getting the absolute best workouts of my life and seeing results to prove it! The Flip Yours family is so genuine. Everyone is excited for your accomplishments. It truly is a family. Cari is the absolute best. She helps you look at your obstacles, whether they are physical or mental, and guides you so that you can address them. She makes you feel empowered and she truly cares about your physical and mental well-being. Joining the Flip Your Fitness Family was the best decision I have ever made. If you are on the fence about joining, come in and see us in action!
