Some super-duper cool quotes:

“I struggled with anorexia... I was overtraining and under eating... and now I just truly embrace fitness to be something can be your therapy and can change your life and your body because it truly did that to me”

“You decide your future. You decide your power”

“Focusing on yourself is so much more important than what other people think of you” 

“Everyone who I looked up to was eating super clean and looked like they had everything together... I thought that I had to be absolutely perfect in my approach to fitness and this was what lead to me being restrictive in an unhealthy way”

“Mental health is something that is not discussed enough and because of this there are so many people who are not educated about it especially about disorders..... we need to evolve and have a shift towards embracing mental health”

“The problem with quick fixes is that no one ever really wants to go long term and trust the process. And this is part of the problem with not prioritizing our mental health. There is no quick fix and we need to start thinking long term how we can all better ourselves”

“We aren’t always going to feel confident in our body and that’s okay. But letting your body define how you feel about yourself is not okay...because truly there are innate qualities about ourselves that we can appreciate and further define who we are” 

“During my classes I found myself planning things for Instagram, writing coaching plans for my clients... I just wasn’t passionate about school... and so I took that one risk and... it was the best decision that I could have made”

“Sometimes I am scared of what will happen if I fail... and this has been my biggest struggle of the past year... but I am working so so hard to not let that discourage me from moving forward and achieving my goals”
