What’s this!!??
This is my old back brace. Yup. At one point I had gotten to a point I went and bought a back brace to ‘wrap my core with support’.  
 Spondylolisthesis. A mouth full! 
So at some point I caused a stress fracture in a vertebra and it led to this condition. A condition that debilitates each person suffering from it differently. For me, I would have such debilitating back pain it would leave me unable to perform my best on my competitive cheer squad or dance at the studio I worked at. At one point just WALKING was a struggle. For a few years I dealt with this. 
It got to the point of steroid injections into my spine! YUP when it came to an epidural when having my Son was all to familiar with needles into my back. 
Guess what?! 
I found this back brace while cleaning out a box in my closet. I FORGOT about it. I haven’t had injections in my back for AT LEAST 7 years. 
What happened 7 years ago!!? Dedication and commitment to strengthening my core!! I started working out regularly. I focused on my core strength. NO NOT JUST CRUNCHES…everything engages the core!! So running in place I made sure my core was engaged etc. 
I was able to WRAP my CORE with a strong INTERNAL MUSCULAR back brace vs. using this one. 
I’m not a medical professional. NOR preaching to cure anything you may be suffering with. 
I just knew that when they told me when injections would stop working, back surgery was next. I’m so happy that I am 100% more aware of my core and KNOW what’s possible with dedication, commitment, and HONORING my body!!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
