I had been digging deep into the health and wellness world for about six years and practicing yoga for the better part of my life when in 2010, I decided to attend a teacher training. It was great but the thing was that I still had some personal health hangups that I had to deal with before I could be the kind of yoga instructor I wanted to be.
Long story short, I ended up in a very pivotal place at the beginning of 2011 and journeyed through a serious lifestyle and fitness transformation over the following months. I was so empowered and positively changed by the process that I set out to help others experience that awesomeness too. So I became a Personal Trainer and Loving a Fit Life was launched as a training service and fitness product shop.
What followed were two awesome years of growth and success. Loving a Fit Life blossomed and expanded because it was fueled by my own raw passion. But after a good long while, I sensed that something integral – not just important but truly integral to our good health – was missing from Loving a Fit Life’s potentiality…
I ended up spending several months exploring those intuitions and it led me into new and powerful spiritual territory. While I had always been fascinated by religious studies, it had previously been about intellectualizing and understanding humanity’s ideas of God, rather than seeking a relationship with Him of my own. Then in the beginning of 2013, all of that changed, and seeking to truly know and communicate with God became my greatest aim.
Loving a Fit Life evolved steadily alongside me for almost three years as God worked in my heart and in every part of my life; all the while preparing this organization for greater things than I ever before dreamed of. The basis of which is my certain knowledge that developing a personal relationship with the Divine is not secondary or separate to living a fit life, but a primary component.
All of this resulted in a revived, inspired, and fresh approach to what I do. Rather than focus only on fitness, my mission is to change the world one whole life at a time. One of those most valuable pieces of wisdom that I have acquired over the last few years is the understanding that every experience of our lives – joys and victories, hurts and challenges, the light parts and the dark parts, our best highlights and the corners of ourselves we keep secret – are all so valuable and so formative for our work in the world. And knowing that makes me incredibly grateful for the wild, crazy, blessed, and breathtaking life I have lived so far. It has definitely not been all sunshine and lollipops, but it is all so sacred, so important, so much a part of who I am – and it has made in me an open heart where every single bit of this work and effort is coming from.
So the greatest aim of Loving a Fit Life is to restore and renew the well-being of people and our planet by teaching and inspiring holistically healthy behaviors, and fostering ever-evolving transformations that result in a movement of world changers and wellness leaders!
