Community, Values & Gratitude
Abby is a strength and sustainable movement coach who’s life was turned upside down when she found out her husband, also in the fitness industry, was cheating her. She felt she didn’t have anywhere to turn but ended up building her own community. Life changed again when she had to have intensive back surgery, causing her to reevaluate her approach to women’s fitness.
When Abby felt like she’d lost everything, she realized she no longer had a fear of failure. In fact, she embraced chances like she never had before in order to create sustainable movement in her local community. By reflecting on her values, she knew that she had to build that community in order to stay true to herself.
With her new community and support system, Abby has discovered the power of asking for help. Even as a solo entrepreneur, it’s okay to take a step back and let other people help you. And you never know what other people can teach you.
As Abby healed through both her physical and emotional trauma, her view of the world and her career changed. There are other lifestyles and abilities out there, and just because they’re different to yours doesn’t mean they’re any less. This has caused an entire world shift for her and one that she’s been open with through her social media.
