How did you get into the fitness industry?
Wowzers… that’s a loaded question ❤️ There was a time in my life when I needed to become empowered and to feel fulfilled. I needed to bring hope into my life and I wanted nothing more than to provide that back to others in return. Fitness saved my life in so many ways. It brings me so much joy and I am able to share that with others. Fitness has allowed me to change people’s lives physically and emotionally. I got into fitness because there are so many incredible components to it. It changed my life at the ripe young age of 19 and I now get to pay it forward every day of my life.
