What keeps you motivated?My own progress. Seeing how far I’ve come in nine years — when I started my fitness journey — is crazy. I look back at old pictures, and pictures when I thought I was at my best, and I prove to myself that I keep getting better.
Why do you love to sweat?It’s the best feeling! It’s euphoric. You do not have to sweat to have a good workout, and I know that. But I like to keep going until I’m drenched, because it’s a whole different feeling of satisfaction — it shows you put in the work.
What words do you live by?“You got this” is my motto. I have a fitness accessory company called Fitccessory and inside of each resistance band it says “you got this!”
What makes you a kick-a$$ Oxygen Ambassador?I think outside of the box. I like to bring new ideas and showcase fitness and health in a fun and different way! There’s too much of the same information out there, so I like to add my personality and own twist on tips, new workouts, recipes, and more.
