AFAA, CPT, CPR
"Prior to joining Fitness Edge Boot Camp I reached a point in my life I needed major changes, not only physically but also mentally. I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
I was self-conscious about my weight and was uncomfortable with the way I looked in clothes wearing only dresses to hide my body. My idea of playing at the park with my children was driving them and sitting on a bench while watching them play.
I was working in a stressful work environment. I knew this was another thing needing a change. Add to all this, I was diagnosed with Cancer (stage 4). I refused to dwell on this situation and I put my focus on my family instead. In fact, I did not tell anyone I was going through treatments, I just wanted it behind me. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I joined FEBC in 2006 and what a life changing experience! The life-coaching program helped me take a leap of faith and get out of my job within a few months after joining.
I love the support of the Instructors and the people! They give me constant challenges and accountability which you simply can't get from ANY gym! Some exercises were difficult at first, but I was given modifications still getting a great workout. I started with walking and then jogging and eventually I was running a slow pace. I've had several ups and downs along the way and it wasn't easy. But, I never gave up! I started losing inches, pounds and body fat and the negative outlook!"
Fast-forward to now - I have lost 76 pounds, 53 inches, 14% body fat! I have a quote I often say: 'Reach for the moon and you'll land among the stars.' I'm willing now to push myself further and try new challenges, like running Mud Runs, Half Marathons and even multiple Full Marathons! Because of all my hard work and dedication over the years, I was asked by Commander to become an instructor. I went through her training program as well as the AFAA certification program and now I am a certified Personal Trainer and Drill Instructor at Fitness Edge Boot Camp!
I'm a mother of 6 children (including a special needs child) and a stage 4 Cancer survivor. If I can conquer these obstacles and rise above them, anyone can!"
