I am living proof that being fit and feeling fabulous is always ready and waiting for us—even after our fifties and sixties!

No matter what you are going through, life can suddenly take you in a surprising new direction. Passionately pursuing something such as physical fitness, can be one of the most powerful ways a sudden turn of events can shift you into total transformation.

It was for me.

Not so long ago, my thirty-year marriage was on the rocks. I had an autoimmune disease affecting the way my skin looked. I was at my heaviest weight. As if these weren’t depressing enough, I found myself in full blown menopause.

Then one day, unexpectedly, a friend talked me into doing a bikini competition with her. Until this moment I had never thought of myself as a person with “bikini body” At age fifty-four, the thought of getting up on a stage in front of hundreds of people in only a bikini terrified me.

Feeling stuck, I desperately needed something new and exciting. Since I was a personal trainer and this sort of thing was supposed to be in my wheelhouse, I summoned all of my courage and decided to take the leap. I had always wanted to put on a bikini and feel good. Why not make it happen now?

Astonishingly, when I found the strength to chase my dreams, I also found the emotional muscle necessary to be true to myself and start focusing on my wants and needs for the first time in decades.

That one simple life-changing decision led me to where I am today. I stepped out of my fear and found “me” again. My old dreams that I had “stuffed away” for years resurfaced.

I placed second in the bikini competition, left my toxic marriage, and even found the love of my life!  I was so happy I wanted this for every woman, so I started an online fitness business called Modern Bodies Fitness. 

Modern Bodies Fitness, offers common sense workouts, meal plans, and mindset coaching designed for any mid-life woman who wants to rewrite her own experience of aging and enjoy the same sort of success I have found.

Find the courage to break through your fear and chase your dreams. The dreams you have for your bodies, for your lives and for inspiration you still have inside of you to share with the world.
