Thanks so much for checking out my blog. In case you can’t tell, I love all things joyful, fierce and fitness related. I recently quit my long-term corporate consulting career to open my own fitness studio in Dallas, GRIT Fitness! It’s a dream come true but also a bit of a whirlwind. I’m learning SO much about being a business owner and full-time fitness instructor.
I write most of my posts after long days working at my studio or on the weekends and they help keep me accountable for living a healthy lifestyle – I have to practice what I preach. Over the years I’ve learned that pushing myself through intense physical fitness makes me better in all aspects of my life – my corporate career, relationships, spirituality and mental health. You can read more about my gritty transformation and my weight loss journey here on my blog.
As a former captain of the Cornell University Women’s NCAA Division I basketball team, I’ve always had to focus on developing my physical fitness and mental GRIT. While I’m no longer a college athlete, I do juggle the demands of entrepreneurship and keeping my body super fit to teach 10 classes per week!
As you follow my blog, I encourage you to believe that no matter your goals, your ability to achieve them completely depends on your self-confidence, optimism and mental GRIT. The human body, when pushed and nourished, is truly amazing! So no more excuses – if we want to develop and maintain a happy, healthy lifestyle we CAN do it!
Today, I challenge you to NAME it, CLAIM it and DO it #GRIT!
