Transformation occurs on the inside leading you to feel strong, healthy and confident enough to conquer any obstacle that lies ahead. Inner strength is developed when a FEARLESS MIND fights hard to conquer a Goal. I am sharing with you my story of transformation to inspire you to realize anything is possible with the right mindset and coaching.
In 2012 (me on the left) I was in my 1st year of my training career. I had hit an unexpected obstacle in my life, and found myself lost in an eating disorder. Anorexia and bulimia attempted to destroy me; it took over my life and for months I was depressed trying to figure out how to get out of the mess. I had over-trained for a Tough Mudder race. Leading up to the race, I felt healthy inside and out, feeling super energized. Little did I know, by training 2x per day and not increasing my macronutrients, I was actually depleting my muscle mass and over-training prior to the race.
This obsession of doing more each day only increased and spiraled out of control. It took me a few months to finally wake up one morning, look myself in the mirror and tell myself I would not spend another day depressed, lost or confused. Once I realized I needed guidance and a coach, I hired a trainer and nutritionist. I started to follow the plan day in and day out for several months. I know what its like to not feel satisfied with your body and the incredible strength it takes to take those first steps towards change.
It took weeks and months of consistent hard work and check-ins to finally feel like I was making progress. One thing my dad always told me during my toughest times was “You can choose happy” and “to keep smiling” that was hard to see at that point. Then I began to start thinking happy thoughts, smiling even if I had to force it. My mom always supported me; she was the one who inspired me to learn more about nutrient dense cooking and how to really feed my body the right way. I am so thankful for my family and friends’ support during that time. It was hard to admit to them I needed help; I was just blindsided by the eating disorder.
Fast forward to today (me on the right) I am the healthiest and strongest I have felt in years!! I am back to running road races, Spartan races, coaching lacrosse and playing all the sports that keep me feeling alive and excited about life.
A transformation occurs from the inside out and that is exactly what Fighter HIIT is focused on. We work on developing a strong mindset around nutrition and physical movement that it becomes a lifestyle transformation. I focus on encouragement while also holding you accountable on your goals. No more hour+ trips to the gym to wonder what you are going to do in there. You start with a customized plan. We take the workouts outside to take advantage of the huge mental benefits to training outdoors! We start with bodyweight training to focus on moving efficiently before we add weights to your program.
