My Journey…The Road Less Traveled! Final Part 3

June 12, 2017

Life as a business owner: Exhilarating, Scary, Rewarding, Busy, Blessed, Freedom, Growth, Worth.Every.Minute!!!! The many emotions describing my life over the past 3 1/2 years but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! As I began my business in January 2014, I immediately connected with everyone I knew who had ever reached out to me–those who wanted results, needed guidance with nutrition or exercise, wanted training/coaching to lose weight/tone up or needed to learn overall healthy habits. My schedule quickly filled up and I LOVED seeing clients transform and being on the journey with them!

The first year involved mainly training private clients 1-1 and nutrition coaching that included grocery tours, pantry clean-ups and meal planning. This was a fantastic and successful process for many of my clients. They learned to meal prep for the week, eat every 2-3 hours and manage their macros. However, I watched as many other clients worked out multiple times a week, yet still not getting the results they so desperately wanted and I wanted for them. Yep, can you believe 80% of your results come from NUTRITION?! I knew that and realized quickly that I needed to offer a more structured process and nutrition program that would help my clients develop better habits, get them to their goals quicker and stay motivated!

Year 2: Enter a co-worker from my finance days who introduced me to an incredible company and program, focused on optimal wellbeing {not just weight loss}, developing a balanced and healthy lifestyle and putting the healthy nutrition habits in place that lead to life-long changes. This was the magic bullet I knew would help my clients and allow me to help more people. I began offering this life-changing program to my private training clients, family, friends and everyone I knew wanting freedom from the fad diets and quick fixes. Don’t get me wrong, the program provides predictable transformations and weight loss, but there’s SO much more to it–community, accountability, support and the education that leads to behavioral changes. As a result, my business and my clients’ lives were rocked by incredible results!!! My dad was my first client and he lost close to 50 pounds in just seven months. Then others started asking me how they could do the same thing and it just starting growing and growing and growing!!!

In addition to training private clients, I wanted to be able to train more people at one time so I started teaching bootcamps.  I loved the energy of group training so when I heard Core Revolution was opening in Ballantyne in 2015, I jumped on the opportunity to teach group circuit classes and help develop the Rep&Ride class format. You can find me here (almost every day of the week) having a blast teaching classes to our awesome clients:!!

Fast forward and here we are in 2017. My business now looks very different than it did in 2014. I’m only training a few private clients a week, teaching several group fitness classes a week and helping hundreds of people get their nutrition on track and experience incredible life transformations!!! I even have a few health coaches on my team who are helping impact Charlotte & beyond and allow even more people to get healthy!!

I can’t imagine a more fulfilling and rewarding life than the one I’m blessed to be LIVING today! I wouldn’t be where I am without the support of my incredible family and friends and ALL of you who have been cheering me on since day 1!  I cannot wait to see where God takes me and my team as we help more and more people find health and freedom. The song by Lauren Alaina summarizes my journey in just a few lines:

“So don’t hold it back and just run it
Show what you got and just own it
No, they can’t tear you apart
If you trust your rebel heart, ride it into battle
Don’t be afraid, take the road less traveled
Wear out your boots and kick up the gravel
Don’t be afraid, take the road less traveled on
Oh, ooh-whoa, oh, ooh-whoa
Take the road less traveled on
Don’t follow anyone,
March to the rhythm of a different drum…”


I’ve shared my journey because I want to inspire people and prove that YOU can live out your dreams too!!!!  Want to get connected to our Healthy Charlotte Community?! Our Monthly meeting is this Saturday 6/17 at Core Revolution in Ballantyne at 12pm. Would LOVE for YOU to join us!!
