That’s right. Without balance in your life, you will never find that happiness and wellness I mentioned earlier. Because balance CENTERS and GROUNDS you. It gives you a sense of CALM, a place to come back to when life gets a little (or a lot!) crazy. And I know no better way to achieve balance than through physical fitness. Better yet, through a structured, consistent, challenging and fun, fun, fun program like Fast and Fierce Fitness Made Fabulously Fun!
I know this because fitness has been there to keep me balanced my whole life. I was a gymnast growing up and even competed on scholarship in college. And I didn’t stop there.
I went on to earn my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. This is one of the most recognized designations in the fitness industry, and it enabled me to do something I absolutely love… working with collegiate and professional athletes!
But I’ve also continued to feed my competitive spirit as an IFBB Fitness Pro competitor, and I’m proud to say I’ve been very successful…
Most notably, I won the prestigious NPC Nationals in just 1 record-setting year (when most competitors take several) to earn my IFBB Fitness Pro card. I’ve also earned a top-10 ranking internationally as one of the most recognized competitors in the fitness industry.
Even through my successes and progress I, too, have fluctuated in weight and intensity over the years. Just 20lbs, give or take, depending on what I had going on in life or was focusing on physically then… gymnastics, competition, lifestyle health or just overall wellness. And while that 20lbs wasn’t nearly what many people are dealing with these days, it still felt pretty drastic to me.
