“I am a boy mom of two, wife to a supportive husband, and former nurse. Over four years ago I started my own fitness journey losing 80lbs after years of struggling with issues such as PCOS and Bulimia. This is when I started seeing my passion for fitness and wellness blossom. I went on to stepping on stage as a figure competitor for the first time in the spring of 2018. Months after I noticed my body was no longer responding like it has before. I soon came to learn about hormonal imbalances and adrenal fatigue as they were my reality. This led me to dive into research. I couldn’t believe the information I was finding. This is the information the fitness industry should be boasting about. Women need to know about hormones, gut health, stress reduction, and self care just to name a few. Weight loss is not black and white, nor is it just training and meal plans. Coping with my own struggles I knew I needed to be this light for other women. Thats when I found FIT CHICKS Academy and their amazing Holistic Nutrition & Weight Loss Expert program. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Not only was I able to further educate myself, but now I am capable of empowering women to do the same so they can go on to live happier and healthier lives.You can find my personal page on Instagram as @bateslovesweights as well as my coaching page @livefreehealthcoachingOn Facebook as @LiveFreeHealthCoaching or email me at letisha@
