I wasn’t always into fitness. I played sports my whole life and was (and still am) competitive AF. I even went to college to play field hockey and still never got a grasp on the importance of fitness.
I was on a balanced diet of brown sugar Poptarts and Gatorade most of the time. It wasn’t until my first day of the police academy did I realize the shape I was in. I couldn’t do a single pull-up. The Lead Instructor called me out and made me fail in front of the entire class. Good Lord did I embarrass myself! I felt a combination of self doubt and anger, but boy did I need that.
Years of eating what I wanted, a good amount of partying, but was so damn frustrated and confused when I couldn’t dominate in PT. Why am I not the best? It was a hard pill to swallow. The academy was where I learned that food is fuel, and I now had an obligation to the community I served to be the fastest, strongest, most well-trained version of myself I could possibly be. The only thing holding me back was me. Once I made that realization…THE GAME CHANGED.
I fell in love with health and fitness, reaching personal goals, helping others reach theirs, and trying to set an example for young girls everywhere. An example that girls are tough and can absolute run the show too. If I can help or motivate even just one fellow girl or woman along the way, then I have achieved my ultimate goal.
My favorite product is Intent! I take in the mornings to kick start my day instead of coffee. It gives me the energy I need to start my 12-hour shift and feel dialed in.
