Hi Everyone, I’m Anitra Mayweather, a vivacious fitness enthusiast with a passion for both exercise and exploration. Before embarking on the FNE Program, I dedicated myself to regular workouts, serving as a beacon of motivation for friends and family in their fitness journeys. Known affectionately as “Jane Fonda” amongst my closest friends, my commitment to exercise has been a defining aspect of my personality for many years. Since, I’ve become eager to elevate my understanding of nutrition, exercise, and decided to set my sights on becoming a certified expert. I’m committed to inspiring and educating others on the transformative power of a balanced lifestyle. My goal is to help others unlock the next level of well-being and vitality.
Before embarking on the FNE Program, I dedicated myself to regular workouts, serving as a beacon of motivation for friends and family in their fitness journeys. The main issues I faced were hormonal imbalances (hot flashes). And, they weren’t fun!I choose FIT CHICKS Academy because it came highly recommended by my sister in Christ and fellow workout buddy. As someone I trust, I knew it would be a good fit.My biggest takeways from the FNE program are: The holistic aspect to the program covering all areas of fitness: nutrition, fitness and wellness; the level of information provided in each module was very thorough; and, the amount of work required to complete the certification which actually requires you to do the work (virtually).

Embracing the “Complete in 3” principle is crucial, as it optimally stabilizes blood sugar levels, making it an excellent choice for maintaining energy and focus throughout demanding days.
