I WANT EVERY CLIENT OR ANY PERSON TO MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY KNOW THEY ARE
Breast Cancer has affected my personal life tremendously and that's why it's so special for Awaken Fitness.
Breast Cancer took my wife, Amanda and my other best friend,
my 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. Amanda 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. She was brilliant. Always asked questions, always did her own research (even doctors looked up clinical trials she was talking about.) Amanda 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 my other best friend, my dog Layla passed away.
Layla lived a happy, humble, energetic, and loving 10 years. Layla was my always there to listen, and my shoulder to cry on when Amanda passed away. I believe that Layla felt both Amanda and my pain and wanted to help so much by actually absorbing some of the pain. I know I sound crazy, but dogs are amazing creatures and I have no doubt in my mind she wanted to take my pain away.
Both of my best friends are now watching over me.
Amanda and Layla still drive and inspire me daily to better myself.
On what I can do to change not only myself, 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 me, Amanda's spirit reminds him to put two feet on the ground, dust off those shoulders, put a smile on my face and move forward.
CONFIDENT, SMART, DETERMINED, INDEPENDENT, COURAGEOUS, BADASS and overall being Strong AF!
Amanda and Layla might not be by your side physically
but have no doubt that they are cheering
you on from up above!
