First part of three

Today is March 5, and I am in a quiet place just thinking about how far I’ve come in my journey to start my own fitness studio.

It has certainly been one of the greatest gifts God has given me; don’t get me wrong, at times, I’ve wanted to throw in the towel, but because it’s my passion, and I know I was born to do this, I’ve stayed committed to helping women with this battle to live a whole, healthy life.

Weigh of Life was started at 429 Scott St. on Aug. 19, 2006. It was a little, tiny building connected to Loris Printing. Many people thought I was a crazy to start my studio there because it was so little, but that’s exactly what I wanted — For clients who didn’t want to join a gym.

I was thrilled to find that little place; it was just what I had imagined and perfect for my intentions. To my amazement the phone started ringing off the hook. I was so surprised because the place was maybe 500 square feet, and I kept hearing was that it was too small. But the phone kept ringing and the clients kept coming. In seven weeks, I had outgrown the building, and I needed to find to find another place.
