Hi there! Allow me to reintroduce myself. Yes, reintroduce because this is not my first rodeo, meaning, this is not my first time blogging. My name is Detra and I’ve had a blog before, used mostly to promote my fitness classes, however, I am coming back with a different perspective. I am a certified Personal Trainer and nutrition Coach. I am not a doctor and I do not claim to know everything about health and fitness, however, I am constantly learning and expanding my knowledge on the subject of health/fitness, beauty and life. I am a Wellness Coach. I provide information, tools, tips and techniques to help others improve their quality of life.
I have been passionate about health and fitness since high school. I was a cheerleader and ran track, being an athlete I was focused on improving times, staying hydrated, improving form and technique, etc. Oh and graduating so I could move out my parents house and go to college, LOL! After high school I attended college where I also ran track and very briefly danced with the band. Once I graduated from college I continued to workout and found myself wanting to help others do the same.
My initial approach was personal training at gyms/studios and after a while that became monotonous. Then I decided to go out on my own and freelance, I had my own boot camps, fitness classes and blog. Then that is when my life changed becoming a wife and mother with new responsibilities, life has become totally different and now I can understand the challenges most of my clients had to face every day. I put my personal training and blog to the side, to focus on the change in my life.
Over the past 12 years I’ve learned a lot. Now I provide information, tools, tips and techniques to help others improve their quality of life. I would like to help someone improve or change the way they think, look and feel about their health, their life. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone or anything else. I know it sounds cliche’ – ish, but it is true.
I hope that something I share will help you Live, Love and Sweat Every day!
