Growing up I was never about ‘this fit life’. I had an extremely high metabolism and the only “sport” I was interested in was street fighting (if that counts lol). I was encouraged to get into fitness by my daughter’s father in 2009 and it caught fire in me at the end of 2011. I began to eat, sleep, and breathe fitness. I was naturally slim, but after I had my first child I had a serious muffin top that I couldn’t get rid of with my own knowledge. I hired a trainer, nutrition coach, and a metabolic tech and in just 60 days I have seen a huge change in my physique. That was my ‘aha’ moment! I knew right then I wanted to be a personal trainer and group fitness instructor so I could help women in particular, maximize their time in and out of the gym.

 

I wasted years in the gym doing cardio to only make a “skinny-fat” Shay! With the knowledge I received from fitness professionals, I went from 30% BF to 18% in less than six months. The most jaw-dropping part for me at that time was I weighed as much as I did when I was nine months pregnant! HOW IS THIS A THING!

 

So here I am. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to help all women experience the “WOW FACTOR”! Toss the scale, add the body fat analyzer, and let me make you say “WOW”!!! “Even the best instruments need fine tuning”
