How has Solace positively affected you in your personal and professional life? Solace has opened my eyes to an amazing, supportive, caring community of people. I have met some of the most genuine people here and I hope to hold on to these friendships forever! Professionally, I’ve gotten much more into the fitness industry and I’m now very interested in pursuing a career in the fitness world.
What advice do you have for people just getting started? It’s important to stretch! Don’t over do it. Make sure your lifting safely, it’s not worth it to injure yourself. But also don’t be afraid to lift heavier as time goes on.
