BIO: I grew up with dance lessons for the first 22 years of my life. Jazz, tap and ballet were my favorites. Later I also dabbled in hip hop and urban line dancing. I have always been more of a performer than a team sports athlete.
I love working out in the gym, and after having kids, I really started to watch what I ate and get my diet in check. In 2015, my husband and I started competing. On April 30, 2016, I won my NGA Masters Figure Pro card! My husband, his uncle and his cousin also compete. It is definitely a fun things to do as a family and it helps that we all understand the lifestyle. We call it the "Thomas Takeover"!!
What keeps me motivated are my kids. My husband and I have 5 children together... they are all very active and I know that they are watching and learning from us. Also my clients motivate me, I have been a health coach for 5 years at a local hospital. My clients give me built in accountability. I want to be a good example for them as well.
I lost 70 pounds and I never want to go back to how my body felt in those days. My husband and I own a gym in Toledo Ohio called CNC Lifestyle Management. Everyday and in every thing that we do, we live by the saying, "Whether you think you can or can't you are right"!! - Henry Ford
