About Me

My name is Alexis, and I am a 30-something fitness blogger living in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. While I'm not a doctor or nutritionist, I am a Schwinn-certified indoor cycling instructor, and have certifications to coach youth in the wonderful sport of volleyball!

In the summer of 2012, I looked at myself long and hard in the mirror and decided that I needed to make a change. A former Division I volleyball player, I realized that I had really let myself go, and that I needed to stop making excuses about working too many hours and not having enough free time; instead, I worked on signing up for a new gym membership, and making healthier choices. After losing 20 pounds, and toning muscles I'd forgotten I had, I was on my way to pure bliss... until a shoulder dislocation set me back a couple of months. Now, I'm on a mission to get my healthy lifestyle back, and quit making excuses for bad habits. Allow me to share my journey to fitness and health with you!
