MJ Shaw has been a friend of ours for many years and when we heard she was opening up her very own fitness studio, Soul Fuel Fitness we could not be more ecstatic for her! Her love and passion for everything health related shone through in all she has done over the years and now she would finally own a home to call her own.

As exciting as this was, there was also a Pandemic looming around the corner that nobody could have ever imagined or predicted.

Today, MJ shares with us what it felt like to open her studio only to be shut down just shortly after opening her doors, what her and her team did to pivot quickly in this state of uncertainty and how she feels this Pandemic has shaped a new era in this industry.

This is a message of possibility and hope that MJ so graciously shares with us today and for that we are grateful. Xo
