"I have always been drawn to fitness and a healthier lifestyle, but being a mom, full time student, working full time and just life in general stopped me from getting to the gym. When I met Sammi I had packed on the pounds and I wasn't happy with how I felt. I was forced to let my body go for the sake of being focused on my obligations.
I started with her Zumba classes and while these were amazing and got my mind and body back on the road to health and wellness, I felt the real change came when I started taking her Cardio Kettlebell classes. I was able to see more than ever before the physical improvements my body underwent. Zumba helped with my energy, but now I felt and actually looked stronger. I could see so much definition in my thighs and arms and most amazing to me was the definition in my back. My core strength is better than ever and I feel more comfortable wearing a two piece bathing suit.
Having trained with Sammi and just being affected by her energetic, positive and truly genuine spirit, I have done things I would have never imagined. In 2012 I entered into and competed in my first ever obstacle race challenge at Sammi's insistence that I could actually do it. I was able to prove to myself that the hard work I was putting in was paying off. Since then I have entered into six more, completed four, two are fast approaching and I intend to enter into more challenging courses in the future."
