What is it like getting COVID-19? Stephanie lets us know how it affected her.

November 23, 2021

In this day and age, we ALL have heard a story about how COVID affects people.  Some people have no symptoms, some people get affected so severely that they aren't able to get out of bed.  Does it matter if you're fit? Does it matter if you're healthy before you contract the virus?  Does it matter if you're vaccinated?

On this episode Stephanie discusses her experience with the virus and exactly how significant the symptoms were for her.  This isn't a promotion of vaccination, anti-vaccination, simply a depiction of the effects of the virus - for someone as fit and strong as a World Fitness Champion.  Listen in here!

Beating a Brain Tumour and Forging a Strong Mindset!

Beating a Brain Tumour and Forging a Strong Mindset!

November 2, 2021

On this episode our hosts speak with the amazing lady Renee Jennison and walk through her battle with cancer.  With the extremely devastating diagnosis of a tumour the size of a mandarin in her brain, the choice to fight or to give up was an easy one for this outstanding lady.  Forging a strong mindset was the only way to fight through! Perspective is always key in life.  There are some challenges that are bigger or smaller than others, and it's how you approach beating them that counts.

 She had a mandarin sized tumor removed from the right side of her brain that has an 80 percent mortality rate.  She has done something truly amazing in surviving this brutal health condition and her mindset throughout the adversity was the epitome of strength. 

Chatting with her helps to provide us all with a great perspective check with someone who has faced real adversity in life.  This is not to say that all problems are not valid, but something we are all guilty of is making problems bigger than they are and using them as excuses to not continue pursuing our goals.  Listen in and hear about a real-life miracle!
