The greatest gift you can give yourself is the gift of health
My cousin was, at the time, just starting to compete in fitness competitions and asked me if I would be interested in doing one with her. I thought this is it, I need a goal so I gave myself 1 year. I signed up for the personal training course and wanted to know everything I could about fitness and the body. The “WHY” behind what I was doing.
A year to that day I stepped on stage and placed 6th in my first figure competition. To be honest I already won before I stepped on the stage, I had finished what I wanted to do — I had found myself again.
I realized that doing something for myself made me a better mom, wife and friend. I am not going to tell you it was easy at times, but I will tell you it was worth it!!!
I have been honoured to continue learning from that day on and have achieved 20 certifications in fitness and nutrition, and am currently taking my kinesiology degree.
If I can be some small part of helping a woman, a mom, or a wife feel amazing, proud of themselves, to find themselves again, I AM IN. Nothing brings me more happiness than seeing people hit their goals and realize that success isn’t about the number on the scale but rather feeling strong, powerful and unstoppable.
