ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Owner
I ALWAYS knew I wanted to do something to inspire and motivate other people to reach for their goals! My weight has always been a struggle for me, from the time I was a little girl. Growing up overweight, I used to hear ALL the time that I’ll never be “small” or “skinny”. For most of my life, I believed and accept it as my reality and by 2016, I reached my highest weight of 275lbs, after the birth of my second son.
However, this all changed in 2017. I started 2017 off with a goal to lose, at minimum, the baby weight. But I kept falling off due to stress and lack of time from being a mom of 2 under 2, planning a wedding, and working full-time in Corporate America. Every week was a “new week to start over” the first half of that year.
It finally hit me at the beginning of June 2017! With the weight of my eldest son becoming a concern with his pediatrician, I saw the cycle repeating itself again. I knew I had to make a lifestyle change if I wanted my boys to pick up healthier habits -- so they wouldn’t have to grow up overweight. Through research + trial & error, I eventually found a regimen that worked for me!
In over a year’s time, I lost 130lbs strictly through changes in my diet and with exercise (my lowest weight was 145lbs, currently I maintain between 150-155lbs). My weight loss journey has allowed me to discover a passion for something I never thought I would become passionate about and that’s FITNESS! As a result, my personal experience and love for helping others is what drove me to launch, Glow & Grow Fitness!

What sets me apart from other fitness professionals? My level of transparency – what you see is what you get with me (which is why I also go by vickinosecrets)! I know firsthand how it feels to struggle with being overweight and trying to lose weight. However, not only do I want you to know that I can relate, but know that I want to genuinely help you to obtain the results you have always wanted to achieve!
With the research I have conducted while going through my own weight loss journey, along with the knowledge I have obtained through my studies to become an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, I will have you equipped with the proper tools to set you up for long-term success.
