This is my son Kayden! He is a gem. He's five years old, has the vocabulary of a grown man and sooo much spunk much for his little body! He keeps me going. We love to eat sweet frog and work out together. He probably has better push up and squat form than most of the folks i see in the gym !!
In high school I was super athletic and never thought about body image until my senior year. It's as if I woke up one day and thought 'I hate myself' and that's when the downward spiral began. I ended up with anxiety and depression, I then started making myself purge after meals which then led into full blown bulimia and ending with anorexia. I suffered with this for months before the affects started taking a toll on my body which is when I sought help. Even in 2007 these "illnesses" weren't well known and weren't very talked about so I felt really alone.
Anyway...fast forward and I ended up OBSESSED with working out which became my 'saving grace' except now I was addicted to this and after a ton of injuries and fatigue I started tapering myself down and here I am. I LOVE working out. I love everything about it. I love the sweat and the stank and the gains and the pain. I love cardio and i love lifting but most of all I love the changes in my body and pushing it to its max every single time. I'm a fan of flexible dieting, I'm no bikini model, I do love to eat but I try to keep it clean 80% of the time (insert winky face emoji here) I absolutely love helping people reach their health and fitness goals. That's what this is all about. This business I'm creating is about YOU! I don't care where you came from, what your story is or whatever your goal might be-I just want to see you through the process, I want to see you crush those goals and make your dreams come true. I don't have some awesome weightloss story but I DO have a story and out there somewhere someone will be able to relate to my pain and suffering and they'll see my humbling beginning and see how far I've come and how strong I am, mind body and soul! I want to change lives. I want to help you create your story!
