I started my own fitness journey in 2013. I struggled with my weight through high school and into adulthood. As my family grew, so did my waistline. Nearing 300 pounds I knew I had to change something. I tried a number of weight loss fads, and would manage to drop weight, but once the program ended, the weight came back on...plus 5 more. I was searching for a workout that I could be excited about day in and day out. I found that in kickboxing. After being a student for 9 months, I was asked to be an instructor. I fell in love with being able to share my struggle with others in order to give them belief in themselves. I am so excited to help anyone become stronger every day.
