Hi and thank you for taking the time to get to know me. :0)
Although fitness has been in and out of my life it has always been and remains my first love. The real story behind my life folowing my passion started in 2006.
In 2006 at the age of 44 I herniated 3 low discs and blew out my S5 L1. This was the beginning of the best worst thing to happen to me.
I had started a business in 1991 that fed my pocket book but not my sole. So I turned to skydiving, motorcycle racing, and other not so healthy distractions. After hurting myself I sat on the sofa for two years gaining almost 60 pounds in the process (this did not help my back). The day I couldn't pick a dime up off the floor was it for me. I loaded my gun drank some wine and...passed out thank you divine intervention. :0) What I'm saying here is that I had sunk so low mentally and physically that I felt there was really no way out.
I crawled into the gym and attempted to work out however what I soon discovered is that I needed help. I hired a personal trainer who not only helped me to overcome my physical limitations she unlocked that most important part of me my mental muscle. How I perceived what had happened to me and most important how to mentally push beyond my own boundries.
As you can see I looked older and miserable in the before picture. The figure competition on stage I am 49 years young (2011) and feel amazing both mentally and physically. (the hippy chick was also November 2011 me jumping for joy age 49)
What I love love love to do is help you to overcome your obstacles and reach your goals. Be it nutrition, training, or that mental block that stops you from livng the life you deserve. I've lived it...so let me share my knowledge with you and together we will reach your goal.
I am an AFFA certified personal trainer, A Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist, a NPC figure and bikini competitor, and someone who knows what it feels like to be overwhelmed. So, What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail? If you've got the desire I've got the path. Make it a great day!
