Strength and Conditioning
5 years ago Mikala was a smoker and felt unhealthy, depressed, and completely unfit. One day she looked in the mirror and didn't recognize the person staring back at her. Where had she gone?
Today, she identifies as a strong, passionate person, with more drive, confidence and love in her life then she could have ever imagined. And it all started with sweat.
Mikala believes that what we do in the gym determines what we do out of the gym. Every time she broke through a physical goal, that confidence stayed with her. She started to hold her head higher, be less closed off and began to expect more from herself and others.
Her physical strength has been a reminder that her capabilities are endless.
She will teach you how to move with ease, reduce pain, explore functionality in movement, strengthen, tone, and inspire others to do the same.
When you start to believe that you are capable of exceeding your perceived limits, of reaching your goals, you are telling yourself: I deserve this, I belong here, and I am, Worthy of Strength.
