ABOUT BRAVO GIRL FITNESS
Hi, my name is Janice and Bravo Girl Fitness is my vision! We are dedicated to helping women and girls achieve their health goals and enhance performance through physical fitness training and health coaching.
I am a NASM certified Personal Trainer and ACE certified Health Coach.
I’m so excited to share my health philosophy, fitness principles, information on fueling your body and how you can take charge of your health today.
I founded Bravo Girl Fitness because I wanted to create an opportunity for women and girls to start living a more healthy and physically active life, educate them on food and its effects on our body as well as how to make health and wellness a priority in their lives.
So many of us struggle with eating healthy and getting or remaining physically active. We either don’t know how or we are so overwhelmed with hectic schedules that we do not or will not make time for ourselves. I was no different.
Five years ago, I was obese. It’s still hard for me to believe, but yes, I was more than 45 pounds overweight. I was inactive and ate everything you should not - Big Macs, large pizzas, foot-long subs, Pringles, juice, Snickers bars, Twix bars, Doritos, you name it. My hair was dry and unhealthy, my skin was breaking out and my metabolism was shot!
It wasn’t until a relative told me that “I was the fattest vegetarian” he had ever seen, and my doctor confirmed that I could “lose a few pounds,” that I knew I had to make a change – a lifestyle change. I thought the answer was to become a vegetarian. The amount of processed foods and “healthy” vegetarian foods I ate sabotaged my weight loss goals. Next, I attempted the vegan diet. It was not for me. I mean, a life without cheese - real cheese - is unbearable for me. I needed to educate myself on what it really meant to eat healthy and be physically fit.
Today, I have a fervent passion for all things health. This space is my opportunity to share with you some of the healthy tips and facts I’ve learned during my fitness journey.
I hope you’re inspired to join me and make a similar lifestyle change.
Be happy, healthy and fit!
