Message “Fitness is not about fad diets and following what’s on trend. It’s about making manageable, practical, life changes to help you live healthier and happier. If you’re feeling discouraged in your fitness journey, take a step back, take the pressure off, and simplify things. Don’t let fear or insecurity rob you of your potential.

Goes on to define Women Fitness in her words

“I feel like that’s a really broad area so I will define what it means to me. When I first started going to the gym I began with cardio and yoga, I think this says a lot about how I portrayed female vs male workouts and exercises. I think even today men are portrayed in the fitness industry as the ones who lift heavy or ‘real’ weights. Most recently there is a trend of seeing more women in the media lifting heavy, showing their strength, and using weights to get fit instead of focussing on just cardio. Through showing my personal journey with weights and sharing my experiences I have helped create an online community that supports a woman’s strength and ability to do whatever she sets her mind to.”
