When we started FIT CHICKS Academy in 2008 we both worked corporate jobs that we felt were OK but just didn’t light us up at all.

We did what we thought we were supposed to do and went to school, got our jobs and started to move up the “corporate ladder” but this left us feeling unfulfilled, bored and has us question is this really all there is to it?

That was until summer of 2008. Before we started FCA we were at an outdoor fitness class, laying under the stars doing some crunches and literally looked at each other at the same time and said “this is what we were meant to do”! So we rushed home and sat at our dining room table to try and figure out what we would call ourselves in our new fitness business we were about to create!

We came up with the name and launched our first fitness class, where we had 7 women sign up. We were super nervous but excited for what was to come. We questioned if we could do this but knew we had to try. 

After that first class, we knew we were on the right track and kept showing up, researching, planning, putting up the posters, handing out the flyers and growing our small business. 

What a lot of people do not know is that we kept our full time jobs for an entire year while we did this. We wanted to know this business could support us financially before we traded in our suits for sweats full time.

Year 1 passed and we did just that, quit the corporate life and went all in on our business and ourselves.

It doesn’t have to be an OR game, it can be an AND game. If you know fitness and coaching others  is your passion you can add this to your life instead of feeling like you have to choose one over the other.

We know it’s hard when starting a new journey. We know it takes guts to go after your dreams. But we also know that is POSSIBLE. Because we have done it…now it’s your turn!
