A Look Inside the Fit For Joy Book...
In my late thirties, I became a certified personal trainer and winning fitness competitor. This was an exciting time in my life. I was healthy and in the best shape ever. I had come a long way to be where I was. Most people admired my fit body, strength, and enthusiasm for fitness. What they didn't know was that there was a secret about me...
