Don’t look back unless it’s to see how far you have come… 📷I thought I’d share some older progress photos alongside my recent updates, but with some greater context.

Lynne is killing it!

I train a wide variety of age groups, ranging from 19-63, everybody is different & everyone’s goals vary. Lynne is 62 and her goal is to defy the frailty that can come with getting older. She’s doing things she’s never done before and is always up for the challenge!  One of the many reasons I […]
