Tell us a little bit about yourself: I’m a registered nurse and my fiancé owns a mobile pet grooming business in Socal called One Bark Avenue (shameless plug). During high school, though I was active in football and dancing, I was overweight and was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Chronic diseases tend to run in my family and seeing that I was at risk, weight loss became my goal. Once achieved and my pre-diabetes reversed, I wanted to excel and now that’s the only thing I’m obsessed about.
My fiancé, Luba, on the the other hand, has been exposed to multiple sports as a child and the sports she played called for agility rather than strength. Currently, she enjoys lifting as it helps with her body mechanics that her job physically demands.
