Wellness is not limited to physical training but that’s where my journey began. For most of my life I’ve grappled with depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. My journey included multiple suicide attempts, repeated hospitalizations, and many failed attempts to treat my illness with various medications. I consistently self-medicated with drugs and alcohol and secretly lived a miserable existence.
I truly believed I was too broken to fix. My love for working out and wellness started in college. During a particularly low point, a friend, a savior, convinced me to join him at the gym. It felt good! Then he convinced me to go again….and again. As physical training became a consistent part of my schedule, I started to feel something that I hadn’t felt much in mylife…happiness.
From there, my voyage has evolved into a love for overall wellness: mental, physical, and spiritual. On this path I stumbled upon a heartfelt passion to help others living with mental illness, low self-esteem, or just a bleak outlook on life. I encourage natural and healthy avenues to help others find true peace and happiness within themselves. I’m a certified personal trainer and a nutrition advisor and promise you I do NOT have all the answers. But I will help you find the support you need.
I created Mind Muscle Pro with that desire in mind. MMP is not a ‘program’ or a ‘magical fix’. Rather, it’s a platform for finding solutions. It’s place to share encouragement, personal stories of triumph, and resources. Now, others can join the MMP family. We are not just about mental health awareness. MMP is about finding solutions for people who are struggling. We’re in this together.
