I am a wife and mother of two that has found a love and passion for fitness and helping others. Just like everyone, I have had struggles with fitness and healthy eating in the past. In 2015, I started my fitness and weight loss journey with Crystal at Crystalized Fitness. Prior to joining the Gym I would always start working out and lose around 20lbs then get frustrated or disinterested. Repeatedly giving up on my routine would quickly lead to me gaining back any weight I had lost. I have tried everything under the sun to lose weight but could never commit to doing it the correct way with proper exercise and diet. I just wanted an easy and quick fix to my weight problems, but none of them worked for me. It was not until one night in February of 2015 when I woke up from a dead sleep crying because I was miserable in my own skin feeling like I was not worthy of a healthy and happy life.
Fast forward to today and I have lost over 40lbs and 50 inches, and have also learned how to maintain my weight. It is the process and the journey itself that I have fallen in love with and being able to give back the same joy I have found in living a healthy lifestyle. Encouraging others around me and teaching everyone that fitness and being healthy can be fun and so rewarding. Even if we have certain goals and reach them, we should set new ones that challenge us to be the best version of ourselves. I tell everyone that they should always dream big and most importantly learn to live in and love your body.
