Hi there! My name is Detra and I am a certified Personal Trainer and nutrition counselor. 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’ve been in this field since 2002. My goal is to help people live a healthier better life.
I have been passionate about health and fitness since high school. Being an athlete in high school and college. Once I graduated from college I continued to workout and found myself wanting to help others do the same. I found that working together with a group can be very motivating on days you just don’t want to do it.
I decided to go out on my own and freelance. I created SweatBoxx Fitness, LLC to help people plan, organize and attack their goals for a healthier, better life! My life changed becoming a mother with new responsibilities, life has become totally different and now I can understand the challenges most of my clients faced every day.
Why SweatBoxx? Originally I thought about my college gym. It was an older building with no A/C, so it was deemed the Sweat Box. I couldn’t get the actual name I was looking for, so I had to be creative and add an additional “x” at the end of Box. Since 2003, the name stuck!
Over the years I’ve learned a lot and I want to provide information, tools, tips and techniques to help others improve their quality of life. My method is to organize, life so that it works for you. I would like to help someone improve or change the way they think, look and feel about their health, their life for the better. 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 Better!
