Get to Know Victoria

I ALWAYS knew I wanted to do something to inspire and motivate other people to reach for their goals! After battling with my weight for my entire life & overcoming that battle, I was inspired to build a brand that could uplift, motivate and PUSH others to go after their dreams as well...

That is when Glow & Grow Fitness was birthed!

My Philosophy:

"Give a man a fish & he will eat for a day....Teach a man how to fish & he will eat for LIFE!"

My Story

Growing up overweight, I used to hear ALL the time that I will never be "skinny” & for many years, I accepted it as my reality. I had no idea why the weight continued to pile on until I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) & insulin resistance in 2008. By 2016, I reached my highest weight of 275lbs, after giving birth to my second son.

 

This all changed in 2017. I started the year 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” for the first half of the year.

 

However, seeing the weight of my eldest son become a concern for his pediatrician was the trigger I needed to break the cycle of obesity in my family. Through research + trial & error, I eventually found a regimen that worked for my body & my lifestyle!​ In over a year’s time, I lost 130lbs strictly through changes in my diet and with exercise.

 

My weight loss journey presented a new passion for something I never thought I would become passionate about and that is fitness. With my passion & experience, I strive to empower my clients on all levels .... mentally, spiritually & physically!
