Current title and occupation?
Motivational coach/fitness evangelist/co-founder of AARMY
First thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
I say thank you. I start each day in gratitude and prayer.
When did the partnership of fitness & motivational speaking become present in your life and how would you explain the way you have combined them so seamlessly?
When I first began coaching physical fitness I immediately realized the relationship between encouragement and motivation and knew there was an opportunity for me to marry sport and spirituality in a way that had never been done before.
What advice would you give to someone who is struggling to find self-confidence?
To focus on all the good qualities and attributes that make us different, special, unique. Begin to put the energy there and then allow that to follow with gratitude for what you're really dope at and then figure out a way to hold space for all of that. I figured out a way to hold space to be an encourager and that came through coaching.
What has been your proudest career moment?
Going on tour with Oprah, playing myself in a major motion picture, and opening up my own space.
Aside from fitness & motivational speaking, you also have an incredible sense of fashion and step out in statement pieces from designers like Jeremy Scott. Has this always been something you loved?
What advice would you give to your 12 year old self?
To always believe in yourself.
If someone had never heard of AARMY, how would you explain it in one sentence?
AARMY is a group of individuals fighting for and with each other for our best lives.
Do you have a personal motto or power statement?
We were all created in purpose, on purpose, for a purpose.
