Unknown facts: “I have to listen to 70s R&B music while I do cardio. It relaxes me. I also love fried vegetables.”

Fitness goal: “My top fitness goal is to stay consistent as long as my body will allow me.”

Physical: Cardio and proper diet work together.
“I must say that my most effective fitness activity is cardio and a proper diet. I’ve learned that I don’t need a lot of cardio to reach my goals, but I do need a proper diet.
“Following the COVID-19 quarantine, I am now back in the gym. It’s been about five weeks, but thank God for muscle memory. It’s been a crazy transition and things are not even close to being back to normal, but I’m embracing the change.”
Mental: I plan my days.
“I create a schedule around my training and don’t allow anything to interfere. The gym is my peace. It’s a stress reliever for me.”
Spiritual: I am nothing without a higher power.
“I could not do and/or maintain the things I do daily without spiritual strength and guidance. I am extremely blessed, and I do not take any of this for granted.
“Also, I’m driven by the fact that God has put me in a position to inspire and help people meet their fitness goals. I love what I do.”
