It has been one tough road for the past 15-months. From our shutdown on March 16th, 2020, to now, there have been many tough and dark times for so many people, myself included. In today’s episode, I share a lot of things you didn’t know as I open up to some of my biggest struggles and challenges during the pandemic.


This includes:

- Why I started the “Good News Network” and was able to continue it for 91-days.

- The ups & downs of creating & running “online fitness classes” in the early days of the pandemic.

- Why I created the “GET YOKED” program for kids & families.

- Why I got knee surgery in December 2020 and how that ended up a long journey of healing my body.

- My BACK--why the flare-up in the middle of my expansion.

- How & why I brought a partner into Fitness Quest 10.

- My faith and how it carried me through the pandemic. There were some real godsends throughout the pandemic, and my faith-walk only deepened during this time.

- What’s NEXT...and why I’m super-excited for the future?


I think you’re going to enjoy today’s episode. It’s vulnerable, real, and one that I hope resonates with you and your walk. I hope the lessons shared will positively contribute to your journey and IMPACT you greatly. Either way, join in the celebration now and let’s get fired up for “opening up” the world again.
