Tina Ellis’s story
HCF: What made you decide you needed to change your life?
“I woke up one day and realized that I was very unhappy, unhealthy, and needed to make a change so that I would be able to live a longer life and be around to watch my daughter grow up.”
HCF: What steps did you take to improve your life?
“I started a couple of days a week at the gym, then it went to 3, then to 4, and now it’s 5-6. I had to rethink my diet, do a lot of research on nutrition to find out what would work best for me. I applied that knowledge to my daily life and it soon became 2nd nature to just eat clean and train.”
HCF: What motivates you to keep on this path?
“The changes I have seen and my daughter….those are my biggest motivating factors.”
HCF: What are you most proud of going through this journey?
“I am most proud of myself for having the determination, dedication, and willpower to stick to it and not let any outside influences stop me from keeping focused.”
HCF: What futures goals do you have?
“I eventually want to get to the point that I LOOK like a competitor, but I don’t want to compete. For me, it’s not about winning against someone else….it’s about winning my OWN competition with myself.”
HCF: If you could share any advice or words of encouragement what would they be?
“Never ever give up. Always look within yourself for the support and encouragement to keep going. It’s good to surround yourself with people who share your same passion and are into this life, but only YOU can make the decision to change and become what you want to be.”
HCF: Where can people get in touch with you?
