An Accidental Athlete

Who do you want to inspire?

I began my fitness journey 7 years ago, I wasn’t interested in being athletic, I simply wanted to gain enough weight to increase my chances at getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy. The first months were hard, they hurt, I felt awkward and insecure and I was sure that I was doing it all wrong. Then slowly I realized that I was actually starting to feel better.

I found my rhythm, gained confidence and strength and eventually fell in love. I started this journey to prepare myself for motherhood at the most basic level and I continue this journey to inspire my daughters. Now it’s my job to show them that women can lift weights, women can run fast and far, and whether you are 5 or 50 it’s never too late to live a life that makes you feel better.
