A'Lisha aka Fanci has had to overcome some incredible obstacles but she hasn't let it slow her down. Read on for very motivating story :)
Fanci is a Personal Trainer, NPC Bikini Competitor, volunteer cheer coach, model, and most importantly mother of 2 beautiful girls and wife for over 13 years. She has had epilepsy since she was 10 months old which for most of her life limited her. She still takes medication to control her disorder. Since many activities were limited for her she never was active and was "chubby" for her size. She was made fun of growing up by her peers and loved ones which lead her to developing both anorexia and bulimia. For many years she struggled with her eating disorders a long with keeping her seizures under control; always striving for that "perfect" body. Then in 2011 things changed for her. She didn't want to deprive herself anymore of food, she didn't want to be limited in what she could and couldn't do she wanted to do it all so she started doing things that she thought she never could do. It started with Insanity and finishing it not once but twice, then off to running 5ks, 10k, and obstacle courses. Then she wanted to get her CPT and while taking the workshop she met some wonderful people who saw her in a way no one ever has...as a competitor. With some convincing she began to train for her first NPC bikini competition. To her surprise she won 3rd place in her first show, April 2013, then finished 3rd in her second show in August 2013. Now she is training for yet another show with a good off season to grow on.
Fanci Fitness: As a Personal Trainer my goal is to help you achieve your goals. Goal setting is very important throughout life. It helps you not only grow as a person but also lets you know by completing or meeting goals that you are capable of anything you put your mind too. The thing with goals is you need to start small and work yourself to bigger and more challenging goals. You also need to make sure you keep your goals realistic. I will help you achieve your goals by motivating you and making you realize your full potential. You will never be put down; you will always be pushed to your limits and at times past them. If you stick with me I will not let you give up and you will achieve your goals.
