Safe Space Fitness-Our Mission
Welcome to your safe space! Safe Space Fitness was created from the belief that everyone deserves a safe space to better themselves both physically and mentally. This passion of inspiring and providing exercise outlets for physically disabled individuals comes from 3 personal reasons: seeing my father go from an active lifestyle to a wheelchair in a blink of an eye, my struggles with weight loss, and avoiding a potentially fatal car accident on a highway.
With some childhood memories, including seeing my father go through the change of an active lifestyle to a wheelchair, I understand first hand the pain & hardships individuals face through this adjustment period. Luckily, after many grueling years of physical therapy and spinal surgery, my dad was able to regain enough mobility in his legs to walk again. Here at Safe Space Fitness, we want to encourage you to share your story with us, your Safe Space family, to be a source of inspiration to help those going through that lifestyle transition.
When a doctor told a 15-year-old me that I was pre-diabetic at 285 pounds, I realized I needed to do something for my health. I took to the internet and watched as many Youtube videos as I could to try and learn about lifting and dieting. Fitness and dieting changed my life. In 10 years, I have lost over 80 pounds. I know first hand the importance of weight loss, but also how difficult it can be to change eating habits and to exercise daily. Here at Safe Space Fitness, we empower you with the supportive environment you need to help beat those challenges to become the best version of yourself.
In January of 2019, a slippery road caused a car with myself, my best friend, and sister to hydroplane and spin several times across four lanes. I somehow was able to maneuver my vehicle to not hit anyone or anything and ended on the shoulder of the freeway. Miraculously, everything that had to go right for me to be here went right. Being in my first near-death experience made me realize how valuable life is and how important it was to leave something to be remembered by. What I want to leave behind is Safe Space Fitness.
