Here is her story:
From a young age health and fitness has been an integral part of my life as an athlete. Even though I was fit and disciplined, I struggled with body image and confidence issues due to what I now know as having low self-worth. Thinking my lifestyle had to be strict and vigorous with diet and training over time I began burning out and suffering anxiety but that was how I coped, I wanted to be in control by thinking I was healthy.
However, after going through a bad break up and developing depression at the age of 23 I knew I had to change my ways by ceasing self-sabotage patterns and sought help in order to create a balanced and a healthy lifestyle. That is when I appointed a personal trainer/wellness coach and with regular strength training, healthy eating and recovery I began to feel good as I became stronger, positive and present.
Thinking I had it all under control life again took a turn in my late 20’s as I experienced another personal trauma which triggered my depression and regular training wasn’t enough anymore. I turned to spirituality intuitively and found additional ways to manage my health and well-being, I incorporated holistic modalities such as energy healing(reiki), kinesiology, yoga and acupuncture. Not to say these methods are for everyone but I knew I didn’t want to take the clinical western route and from regular training and new holistic regime I am now able to be and operate at my best (most of the time).
My drive and motivation is now to help, support and empower others through my experience to be their best.
