I WANT EVERY CLIENT OR ANY PERSON TO MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY KNOW THEY ARE STRONG AF
Breast Cancer has affected Joel's personal life tremendously and thats why it's so special for Awaken Fitness.
Breast Cancer took his wife (Amanda) and his other best friend his dog (Layla).
Amanda truly embodied how STRONG, CONFIDENT, SMART, DETERMINED, INDEPENDENT, COURAGEOUS, and overall how BADASS WOMEN ARE!
She was a master sergeant in the Army and was in the military for 17 years.
She was a Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Specialist.
If you know anything about the military that's a pretty BIG DEAL.
She was well on her way to getting promoted again and retire in 3 years.
Being a woman in the military is already hard enough and she opened doors for future women to come.
Not only that, but if you knew her, she never talked about the military, probably because it was classified.
She was brilliant. Always asked questions, always did her own research (even doctors looked up clinical trials she was talking about.)
She was down to earth and so humble with a smile or laugh on her face.
Fast forward a year and a half later and with the same symptoms and the same diagnosis Joel's other best friend Layla (his dog) passed away.
She got to live a happy, humble, energetic, and loving 10 years. Layla was his ear to listen to and his shoulder to cry on when Amanda passed away.
He believes that Layla felt both Amanda and his pain and wanted to help so much by actually absorbing some of the pain. He knows he sounds crazy by saying this but he truly believes this.
Both his best friends are now watching over him.
Amanda and Layla still drive and inspire him daily to better himself. On what he can do to change not only himself, but the community and the world in a positive way.
Amanda inspired how Awaken Fitness was founded.
In honor of her, and for all women, family and friends,
I bring you Strong AF.
No matter what goes on in my life or what obstacles the universe has for him, Amanda's spirit reminds him to put two feet on the ground, dust off those shoulders, put a smile on his face and move forward.
CONFIDENT, SMART, DETERMINED, INDEPENDENT, COURAGEOUS, BADASS and overall being Strong AF!
