My Story

Ultimately, I am motivated by my vision and desire to make a grand impact on this world and to break generational curses that have impacted my family, the African American community, and specifically women.  70 percent of the people in my family have health issues that are caused by obesity and a lack of education on how to be healthy. This continues to be a challenge and problem in many black families and oftentimes the women suffer the most when trying to take care of the ones they love. As a result, their own health can be overlooked and neglected. I am passionate because I myself have always been in a constant battle with trying to manage my weight, metabolism, mental health, and others.  I realized that through movement and small changes I could actually manage it all. I started to  feel better, look better, and most importantly grow stronger mentally and physically. I knew I was not going to be an IG model or a body builder, I just wanted to be healthy, that’s it. When I looked for trainers I couldn’t find very many that were relatable and I knew there had to be other women that were just like me. So my goal became to help women like me learn to infuse healthier habits into their daily routine, make movement a priority, and teach them to give themselves permission to take time out for self-care. I want to equip them with the tools to manage their time, responsibilities, and their health overall so that they can enjoy a healthier and more confident life. In a world full of superficial theologies I want to help them achieve the best version of themselves, embrace who they are and adapt a new confidence and strength to support their families. I Just Want To Be Healthy provides support, workouts, accountability, education, and a safe space for women to relieve stress while having fun. We focus on helping every woman understand that working out is just one of the many ways you can show love to your body and your best you shows up when you are healthy and happy.
