In early 2010, while watching an episode of the Biggest Loser with my then 5 year old son, I hit rock bottom. My little boy looked up at me and said, "Mommy, you look like those ladies and I don't want you to die." It was then that I realized what my weight gain and subsequent depression was doing to my family - and to me. I was 35 years old, 280 pounds and completely miserable. I had noticed a friend mentioning her trainer on Facebook, so I mentioned it in passing to my sweet husband. Next thing I knew, I had a meeting with Trainer Tina. Little did I know that day that I had just met the woman who would change my life. Tina would become not only my trainer, but my coach, cheerleader, nutritionist, accountability partner, dear friend, sister, spiritual mentor and prayer warrior. It's hard to find words to describe my experience with Tina other than to say it has been completely transformative! Tina has a way of pushing your body way past what you think it can do, showing you just what you are capable of - all the while lifting up your spirit and strengthening your mind. Believe it or not, Tina's gym is actually a fun place! I am always blessed by my one-on-one time with her, but I also love the camaraderie of working out with other women walking the same journey as me. Tina's gym is also a safe place. I often say it's like church for me...I always leave feeling renewed and purposed! I owe my LIFE to Tina in so many ways. Today, I am healthy, fit and strong - physically, mentally and spiritually - a far cry from the woman I used to be. Would I recommend Tina as a trainer? Absolutely, positively, 110% YES - and I have, many times! Tina is a true gift from heaven and I wish that every woman in my life could spend time with her. I can't imagine that there is anyone better to help you reach your goals. She has helped me reach mine - and encouraged me to set new ones. I am looking very forward to reaching with her by my side!
