Faith

Faith, from my point of view, means trusting and believing assuredly in things you can't factually prove . Faith is especially important to me because it allows me to pursue passions and dreams without being discouraged by other people's negative opinions or by distressing circumstances. One of my heroes, Martin Luther King Jr., suggests that faith is about "taking the first step even when you don't see the full staircase." Faith has played that exact role in my life. From starting my own business, to surviving cancer and even to raising a healthy and intelligent daughter as a single mother, faith has given me the inner strength to keep going in the face of stark odds.  

Fitness

Fitness is more than being able to run three or four miles easily or having an impressive max bench-press; fitness is a worldview. Fitness is the ability to meet life's demands with confidence. Whether that means being able to take your kids to Disneyland, pick up new hobbies or being able to make it to your grandson's graduation, life should never be hampered by poor health. Personally, fitness is an impetus for change. I struggled with my body image and self confidence all the way into my early-thirties. However, once I was able to challenge my body in new ways I learned how to meet life's challenges with a renewed vigor and grace! Fitness is not concerned with comparison, it is an absolute singularity; one's level of fitness is relative only to that person's unique situation and demands. Simply put, my goal is not only help people look "sexy" and become more "athletic" and "healthy", but also to help people realize their full potential!   

Fortitude

Life. Is. Challenging.  This an unavoidable consequence of simply being alive. Success therefore, is not determined by our ability to elude life's difficulties, but rather to embrace and respond positively to each new challenge. Fortitude is the virtue which enables us to strive and push forward in the face of these difficulties. My struggle with cancer taught me about fortitude. As a fitness professional, I grew accustomed to being full of vitality, energy and strength. I quickly learned that real vitality was being able to fight for my continued existence everyday. Energy is being able to perform simple tasks, tasks I would normally take for granted, while perpetually being at the brink of exhaustion. Strength is being incredibly weak, completely vulnerable, and still daring to live.

FAITH GIVES US A VISION FOR THE FUTURE. FITNESS GRANTS US THE POWER TO PURSUE LIFE. FORTITUDE IS OUR ABILITY TO PROTECT OUR FAITH AND FITNESS WHEN THEY ARE UNDER SIEGE.
