I wanted to help people, but I didn't know I would make a career of it. Then one day while visiting my sister, she said, "You have a voice, you have the passion, people are lined up waiting, they need you and you have not fully accepted the challenge. All you have to do is accept the path God has laid out for you." Her words haunted me for days. I knew what she said to be true. Finally, I put fear and uncertainty aside and put the wheels in motion to not only be a beacon of hope, but a vessel for change for others -- I changed careers.
My new career grew and it needed a home where I could deliver in a setting that really fit me and how I wanted to deliver for my clients and 110% FIT was born. I wanted to create a small intimate place that felt like it had the gusto of a big box gym and more. The "more" part is the culture I wanted 110% FIT to have. I wanted to create a culture of belonging, a culture for change, a culture of accepting responsibility for one's outcome, a culture where clients feel they can do any darn thing they set their minds to and a culture of enrichment. These are the very tenants that fed my own personal transformation.
I am an aging woman whom has had plenty of struggles that could be viewed as setbacks, but I continued for forge forward. I get it and I operate from a different vantage point than other fitness professionals. Today, I am happy I faced my fear of uncertainty. 110 FIT is thriving and I have the privilege to change lives. This is not work for me. It is my passion.
