When I started on this journey of transforming bodies & minds, little-by-little creative ideas came to me to help people in bigger and more comprehensive ways.
As a kid I was being planted curiosity & interest in the Wellness Industry by watching my mom's pursuit. She had so much love, passion & energy for this industry as she opened up her fitness studio & poured her heart & knowledge to help transform her clients. When I hit 21, I started out working as a Personal Trainer at New Lady Fitness teaching 1 fitness class. I soon moved to Bally Total Fitness in training & Sales. Both of those experiences in St.Louis MO proved to me that I didn't want people to be just a number or a sales quota. I wanted a system. A system whereby someone could work with me and learn my system & then move to a deserted island and still be able to implement the system & derive stellar body & mind results.
I was a big dreamer but that didn't happen right away lol. I opened up a Fitness Bootcamp (based on a dream I had months before) outdoors in all the elements. This was before the masses had heard of bootcamp and thought it was a place to discipline their teens bwahahahaha. When I started I became quickly known for my no-nonsense style. I ran the camps on my home as my husband was serving in the war on Iraq & didn't join me until 2 years later. Myself & my participants worked out long and hard in sun, snow, sleet, rain and all types of inclement weather and temperatures. I quickly noticed and wondered how and why some who were so committed to working out in high intensity 3, 4, or 5 days/wk still struggled with cellulite...or belly fat or low energy. Initially I put my clients on EVERY single diet that was out there & recorded their quantities & results. I had a feeling that diet must've been the missing component so I relentlessly tried each one with them and spent weekends researching food and tracking their food journals.
After Months of research and still minimal dietary improvements, I decided to research with the intent of writing my own diet book. I made myself 1 promise: I would not publish it until I did adequate case studies and could unequivocally say that my diet works on at least 95% of participants. Well that eventually happened about 4 yrs (and a freak accident) later. One of the best things that happened to me personally through the process is I found the secret to eliminating my massive sugar cravings. You guessed it: Detoxing Hence the reason that I am SOLD on the power of a detox. After I saw phenomenal results with my clients on intermittent detoxing, I made it a part of the R3 Lifestyle. Step 1 was to detox and Step 2 was to follow my lifestyle eating diet called, 'R3 Diet.' (Reverse Retrain Rebuild the Body & Mind. Now that the eating was perfected and clients were losing fat almost like magic and keeping it off, I felt myself being pulled to focus on mindset. I became obsessed with any and all self-improvement, spiritual, mental & emotional audios, books & seminars. For years I only implemented mindset into my fitness program by ending each bootcamp with a 3-minute positive affirmation & message. But fast-forward until today and I became trained as a Synergistic Kinesiologist w/muscle testing to work more intensely on mindset, limiting beliefs & emotional toxins. It has been one of the biggest breakthroughs of my Wellness Practice.
The next piece of my puzzle was when I became a Sports Nutrition Coach & became obsessed with herbal & natural supplements. I saw how supplements could fill in the gaps of anything missing in the diet and speed many of your bodily functions. I started formulating my own supplements & tonics & that felt like a really great addition to my transformation system.
The Final piece is putting together the Supercharge Your Superhuman Program & upcoming book:My 4-Part Method to ultimate human potential. Through Seminar, Retreats & online training the method and message can reach far and wide.
I feel elated. It feels like a new me. It feels right. It feels Supercharched. This journey has been well over a decade and there were insurmountable obstacles my husband & I had to go through. If I would have seen the entire journey in a crystal ball on Day 1 I would've walked...no ran away from it. But somehow when something grabs your heart & whispers to your spirit, 'GO' you just GO. You may not always be able to give logical explanations or write down a comprehensive business plan detail by detail, but you know the direction is clear and the victory is yours. This is not just a victory for me, but all those who I have impacted now and beyond. This is just the beginning.
