“Genetics does NOT need to determine your destiny!” Barb's journey with health and fitness began when she started to steadily gain weight after high school. Understanding she had a strong family history of obesity, she spoke to her parents for guidance. Her father told her there was nothing she could do to fight genetics and that she would continue gaining weight no matter what she did. That conversation ignited a fire in her, and she became determined to prove that family history does not need to determine your destiny. She lost weight and has kept it off over 10 years, even after having twins. See her before/after pictures (along with before/after picture of her clients) on her website - BarbsFitForLife.com.
