Start Digging!

If you knew you had a treasure, worth enough to radically change every facet your life, buried deep in your front yard what would you do? Would you say: I just don’t have time right to do all that digging right now. It’s going to take way to much time and the work is going to […]

MASTERPIECE – Intentional Nutrition & Weight Loss Video!

The STRUGGLE at over 300 lbs was real for Angela but she realized that the REAL STRUGGLE was not making life changes and living intentionally within God’s designed boundaries, it was carrying the EXTRA WEIGHT of a FULL GROWN ADULT and all the mental and emotional baggage of the battle within!

From Pain to Improving My Body for God’s Glory

There Was Daily Pain… I have suffered with RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and fibromyalgia for over 12 years. I have also had several surgeries and a joint replacement due to the damage from RA. Pain is a part of RA and for a time, there was daily pain. There were also many days when I could […]

Age is Just a Number

I’m so proud of Brenda Wilson and the incredible progress she has made in less than a year at Fortified Fitness! She is working hard and it shows!! She is a flourishing example of how age is just a number! She talked to me over a year ago at church about wanting to implement some change in her life to […]

Perpective

When you are oriented, standing further away from a large object, like say, a mountain or the moon, it seems small. As you move toward the object it “grows” bigger and bigger.
