In The Clients’ Shoes
“One of my biggest obstacles is when I got pregnant 4 years ago. I was facing a lot of body image issues. I was supposed to be a fit girl, and I was trying to adapt to my body changes while coaching people. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was unable to coach because I was limited with the movements I could because of how big my belly had gotten”
I then had to adapt to motherhood, there were a lot of changes, it was difficult that I had to take some time off from my job, and I really love my job. At the same time, I wanted and tried to get back on track and give my body the fittest comeback I’ve experienced. I was in my clients’ shoes at that period of my life, whoever was struggling to lose weight, and find time to work-out, I felt their problems, I LIVED their struggle.”

“Bit by bit I started to get back on track, and I wanted to devote my job In Befit to focusing women. I started a program” EMPOWER HER”, for women, and I was especially targeting moms. it’s not just fitness, it’s also a wellness program. I wanted to create an environment where moms come to work out and chat together. It’s not just about losing weight, there’s yoga teachings, mobility, healthy nutrition, physiotherapy of mothers’ body changes, child nutrition to learn to feed their babies well, post-partum depression education, and stress management. The goal is to come out of the program feeling better, and having an overall sense of wellness in life and learning how to move forward.”
