Fast forward 20 plus years later--I opened my own women’s only facility, loosely modeled after the one I attended when I was sixteen. I took everything that I fell in love with and adapted it to my own space. My goal was to make it an incredibly empowering environment where women could feel safe [...]
On my own journey to self-actualized body positivity, I’ve realized a few things about my own body that have caused me to do some reframing. First off, it doesn’t always matter how athletic you are, how thin you are or how old you are. Stretch marks can be found on any body type. [...]

I’ve been a runner, weight lifter, fitness competitor, trainer and nutrition expert for well over 20 years. In every sport I’ve competed in--with the exception of fitness competitions--which I HATE by the way-- I’ve competed with several types of people including people who were extremely fit but didn’t fit the typical mould of what [...]
I am not of the opinion that CBD is the silver bullet that many people make it out to be. I’m very aware that like most things, using CBD in concert with other natural products is what’s probably most beneficial for most folks. Recently, I switched my skin care routine to include only CBD [...]
