Terri believes that healthy causes yield lifelong effects.
I've had my share of challenges with weight. From childhood through high school I was teased and taunted by my peers. But once I changed my mindset, understanding that fitness isn't just about looks but about health and wellness, my life changed.
I understand that adapting new fitness habits is difficult and often times fails. My goal is to change your view on fitness, so that it becomes a part of who you are and your lifestyle. (I can change your body if you change your mind.)
