I’m from Philadelphia and now I live in Atlanta. I’m a certified life coach currently pursuing my BA in psychology and I work for Starbucks which I absolutely love!!
How did you discover FightCamp?
I discovered FightCamp through Instagram. I saw an Ad on my newsfeed.
What’s your favorite part of the FightCamp workouts?
There are a few favorites that I have, lol. I love that I literally feel like I’m right there live with the participants. It’s as if the trainer could see me through a camera connection. It’s funny because, when I slow down, the trainer says something motivating at that moment you need that extra push. That got me thinking that FightCamp should offer live classes in the future. I also love that there is the flexibility in workout length plus the music is bomb! Being able to track my progress is a motivating bonus that pushes me to beat my last record.
How would you describe how you feel after a FightCamp workout?
I feel amaaaaazing… I have more energy and I feel strong.
How/why does FightCamp fit into your schedule?
It’s literally on my phone. This means I can take my workouts with me anywhere, anytime. It does not matter if it’s 8pm, 3am or 5am. Sometimes, I have to be at work at 4am and instead of going to the gym because I’m too tired for that type of interaction, I can come home and get my workout in… a good one. Then, I’m done. No Excuses.
How is FightCamp different than any other workout?
I really feel like there is a personal and genuine touch. I can’t explain it… you just feel it. Plus, the instructional content the and Boxing-Base workouts allow me to get guidance on how to box without leaving home.
