Hello, and welcome to the HRM community! It is like none other, and I think you are going to love it here! This Autumn marks my 7th journey with HRM, and my first as an Ambassador. I am so honoured to be here, and I can’t wait to tackle our goals together!
Like so many of you, I lead a full and busy life. I work part-time as an X-Ray Technologist and Mammographer, I have a wonderful husband, and a very active five year old son....as well as a young golden retriever and three cats! Staying active is a necessity for me. It helps create the energy I need to live my best life, and provide my loved ones with the best version of me!
I am so thankful that I found out about Healthy Role Models from a friend back in 2016; at that time I had a two year old, and was suffering from anxiety. My days consisted of catastrophic thinking, stress, tears, anger, and despair. I didn’t know what was wrong with me but I lacked energy, drive, and any kind of passion. I KNEW I needed to do something to change my ways.
Enter HRM! From the moment I joined the online community, I knew I was in a special place. A group of ladies who are there for one another, building each other up, celebrating one another’s wins, conquering fears and pushing comfort zones. I actually found it hard to believe the amount of support, and genuine encouragement coming from the other women! Women supporting women?! Who knew?! When people ask me why I choose this fitness program, my answer is always the same...the community! Don’t get me wrong, the workouts are awesome. They are efficient, creative and designed to increase strength and endurance, but it’s the love within the HRM community that keeps me coming back.
Throughout my six journeys I have had highs and lows, losses and gains, but ultimately I feel so much healthier now. I feel the best that I ever have. HRM has shown me the importance of consistency, self-care, and rest! I’ve learned that my body is capable of so much more than I ever thought. Exercise creates endorphins, and man, are they fantastic! The solution-based philosophy of HRM, the workouts and the community really help me to thrive. My newest passion is hiking, and I am currently training for my first half marathon, which has been on my bucket list for years and years. HRM has given me the confidence to do all of these things.
I’m so excited to join you on this journey, and watch you crush your goals. See you on the page!
