Cristina Flores , NASM Elite Trainer

Bio

Now is the time to do something about your health. Forget the number on the scale. Remember the pills you might have to take due to high blood pressure, the insulin shots due to diabetes, the stairs you can't walk up because it is to stressful.

Weight is nothing but a number but health is worth it's weight in gold.

Let this be the year that you stop taking or reduce your dependence on drugs, let this be the year that you conquer those stairs, let this be the year that you live in the sunshine and breath deep breathes.

When you focus on your health and your fitness the weight will diminish, both the physical and the mental weight. Start eating healthy and live to live. Smile and feel the electricity going through your body as you push on and through the walls that you have erected around yourself. Feel the life that is waiting inside of you to come out and play.

This is a community of fellow like minded individuals. We all have our own walls, our own stuff but we are here to overcome that.

Reach out and be reached with motivation and support and encouragment.

Find your true happiness. Stick with a program that works for you, ask for advice from the Elite Trainers because that is why we're here, to help you. We want to help all of you, all you have to do is ask.

 

"Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.” - Leon J. Suenes
