Tell us how your fitness career has evolved? Have you always led an active lifestyle?
I’ve always been active but I’ve only been in the fitness industry for a little over a decade. I’m now taking it one step further by incorporating not only physical training into my method but also mental, emotional and spiritual training. I now know that in order to be truly “fit” you need to address the health in every aspect of your life. So, I am developing a training program that does just that.
