Some of you may have been questioning, "What's this Lifestyles By Choice brag all about?". Some of you may even be asking, "Why the name?". So, let's do a little intro rant!
In 2015, I enrolled in an online health coaching program called The Institute For Integrative Nutrition where the end goal was to gain a health coaching certification and to spread my new knowledge of how to become healthier, holistically, in my community. Roughly six months into the program, I was in the business portion module of the semester where we needed to come up with a business name as that is where we were going to begin getting a plan ready to start our practices in the community. I had chosen between three different names. Actually, I did a Facebook poll and my Facebook followers who voted helped me decide which name I was going to choose. Hence, Lifestyles By Choice was born.
As more time went on in the year long program, life hit and I was unsure of how to mentally continue with the program. Although I did not complete my program or receive my health coaching certification, I held onto the name because I knew it was going to be born into something so much more than just a health coaching certification and practice.
Years went on and as I was developing in my own health and fitness, I had a variety of people reach out, asking me what I was doing to get healthier. Thoughts came into my head as to what I could do with Lifestyles By Choice and since I was receiving so many messages, I decided to create a Facebook group (which has now transformed into an actual Facebook Page) to host challenges and to give the advice I had as well as to become more of a positive influence for people. Needless to say, Lifestyles By Choice has turned into something so much more than just being an influence for people. It has now become a steeple where I get to fulfill my dreams of not only being my own boss, but doing what I love, and that is helping people discover a better them, from all walks of life.
When the idea of a health and fitness studio came to be, I was a little uncertain as I've had many doubts with what I could accomplish from past goals that were never achieved, but I knew in my head that was all just negative thinking trying to brain wash me into putting my dreams off longer. I also knew the very familiar quote that what you dream, you can achieve if you just put your mind to it and work for it. I thought, if not now, when? Trying was the least I could do and although some people weren't fully on board right away, I wasn't going to let their doubts get in my head any longer because it was my dream, not theirs. There are so many people in this world who work a job that they hate with a boss they don't respect because that boss doesn't respect them, just to pay the bills. Now I don't know about you, but that sounds like a miserable way to live life!! I always told myself that someday, I WILL BE MY OWN BOSS. My dreams are to be creative for myself, to leave a legacy that no one else has, and love beyond measures because kindness and compassion is what we need most of in this world.
With all of that being said, I decided that NOW, was the time. NOW was the word I was looking for in the right scenario to just take a risk and go for it and NOW because of that, the first official Lifestyles By Choice Health & Fitness Studio is being born as we speak.
With my Lifestyles By Choice Health & Fitness Studio opening January 6th, 2020, you can expect more than your average studio space. Separating me from the majority, my specialty and focus is for the males and females who think in a way where, "I need to get in better shape before I get a gym membership" or, "I have no idea what the heck I'm doing and I don't want to be THAT person being judged for not knowing what I'm doing". There are many more things the average beginner says, but when it comes down to it, people don't feel confident when it comes to doing something they've never done. I don't either. Doing something you've never done is extremely uncomfortable! But mind you, that is normal to be uncomfortable with doing something you've never done!!
LBC Health & Fitness Studio, is a place where you can gain the fundamentals and basics of fitness, gain confidence, build relationships, train in a space where heavy machinery, and bulky dudes don't exist, & most importantly, feel welcomed no matter where you're at with your health and fitness journey! Health and fitness is a lifestyle, it's not a game where the end goal is to be completely shredded your entire life. That's not realistic! Gaining health is more than working out. It's about mental stability, feeling good inside and out, your skin looking amazing, and being kind to your body. Lifestyles By Choice wants to help you achieve that!!
Being personal and passionate about health and fitness, I will have opportunities where I will be offering FREE health and fitness evaluations to help guide you into a healthier you, to help you discover a better you, & to help you gain confidence in carrying on with your goals where it doesn't feel like a chore with a time limit.
Alongside being able to sit down one on one, I will help you set up goals and get a routine in place that is right for you! With six different group training classes available, you will be bound to get the fundamentals down in no time! The variations of classes you can expect are:

For my one-on-one clients with kids, you can enjoy the advantage of a kids corner, saving you money on childcare and the stress of finding a babysitter! Truly, Lifestyles By Choice is a non-judgmental facility and will not tolerate any means of negativity! With a mind, body, spiritual focus, you can rest assured that you will receive genuine and authentic care, accountability, quality customer service, & the freedom express who you are without feeling shameful.
