Once upon a time there was a girl. She was happy being a Mom to her three boys, but something lurked within that stole some of that happiness. What was it? Well, it was the 100 extra pounds that she was carrying around. Times that were suppose to be fun, weren’t fun anymore. Like going to Busch Gardens and being afraid that she couldn’t ride a ride with her kids because of being too big to buckle up. Or not going swimming or parasailing with them at the beach because she wouldn’t wear a bathing suit. The icing on the cake? Only getting naked in the dark! It’s sad because she lost some good memories that could have been made because she sat on the sidelines and watched as life passed her by. That girl was me and one day I decided to change that, enough was enough. I wasn’t looking to be a “skinny bitch” just a healthy, more fit one.
I hold a degree in Respiratory Therapy and am a certified personal trainer as well as a certified wellness coach. As a result of my extreme weight loss, Pirate Girl Fitness Company was born. It was my desire to help more women (whether, overweight, obese, fitness-newbie, etc) to reach their fitness goals so they can live that kick-ass life they deserve! In the last 5 years, I have trained many, many ladies whether through boot camps, one-on-one or small group training. Lots of fat was lost and with that a lot of good intentions too.
My fitness philosophy is simple and I quote “there ain’t no magic pill or potion buttercup, just hard work and commitment.” It took you a while to acquire your current body, it’s going to take time and patience to change it! Am I right? But, never fear because the programs here at Pirate Girl Fitness Company work, period! Anyone can complete our programs. So, no intimidation here! We’re not out to train athletes, we’re out to train average girls who have a fair amount of weight to lose.
So, what are you waiting for? Don’t be like me and let 15 years go by before you do something. Like Will Rogers said “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” Well, what are YOU waiting for, a miracle, a magic pill, another anxiety attack over getting naked in the daylight or are you just waiting to get your a$$ run over?!
