Who We Are

 

Breanna has lived a unique life compared to most. She grew up as a speedskater on roller skates, inline skates and eventually ice skates. Her dream and goal was to win a gold medal at the Olympics. She moved away from home for part of her senior year in high school to train at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY. Following that, she moved to Calgary, Alberta, Canada to train at the Calgary Olympic Oval. Her whole life as a child and young adult evolved around speedskating. It was her full time job and was who she was.

 

In the end, Breanna wasn’t able to become an Olympian. She ended up with three knee surgeries, a broken heart and looking for a new dream. But it was ok. You can’t always achieve what you set out to so you find a new dream and goal. That goal ended up with Breanna wanting to start her own business.

 

Immediately following Breanna's career, she gained 65 pounds in less than a year. She went from an elite athlete who trained twice a day, 6 days a week to a plus sized person she didn't even recognize any more. The struggle continues and Breanna is still a size 22 but she is active and hoping this journey of The Fit Figure will inspire others to be active, no matter their size or shape and to also inspire herself to get back into shape and love the way she looks for the first time.

 

Won't you please join her on this journey?
