“Hey my names Alyssa Cortes and I began my fitness journey over 5 years ago.
I always struggled with my weight growing up and was very self conscious.
At the age of 13 I began working out regularly and eating clean. I made it a point to skip the fad diets and just focus on developing healthy habits. I also began weight lifting and by the age of 17 I became a certified personal trainer and was down 60lbs.
Today I continue to lead a healthy balanced lifestyle and have learned to love the skin I am in. If I can give any advice to someone just starting their fitness journey it would be to have patience and remember that anything that comes fast usually doesn’t last. So instead respect the process and know that slow and steady progress will lead to lasting long term results.
A strong relationship between your mind and body is one of the most important relationships you could ever build.”
