Check out this badass! Traci is my latest Always Growing feature & I bet you can guess… her word of the year is FEARLESS.
Traci has been a mentor & coach to my son. From day one, she stepped up and took him under her wing as a trainer & mentor (which I believe every teenager needs). She is kind, generous, driven, & just a darn good soul.
Even though my son’s sessions have ended, she still texts me to see how his sports & life are going.
Building community is very important to me, and I am so glad the Universe brought Traci into our lives.
I included a few of her answers below because….we should ALL take a lesson from Traci & be a little more fearless.
What makes you push through?
I do these particularly difficult workouts called “Hero” workouts once or twice a year. These are extremely tough workouts…grueling, in fact. They make you want to quit and give up. Sounds fun, eh?
But, we do them as a tribute to fallen first responders or military members who died while serving honorably in the line of duty. We do them to remember how lucky we are to be alive and surrounded by those that love us.
What are a couple of healthy ways you deal with stress?
I love all types of fitness, especially running Spartans, competing in Olympic Weightlifting competitions and Powerlifting competitions.
They bring me peace.
I do strength & conditioning fitness 3-4 days a week.
I started this type of training when I was 47. I am now 53, proving it is never too late.
The love of fitness led me to become a strength & conditioning coach last year for teens, master athletes, and all ages in between.
What’s the last thing you did for the first time?
I stepped far out of my comfort zone by taking an upper-level coaching course where other coaches judge your instruction abilities.
It was frightening and exhilarating all at the same time. Would I do it again? You bet.
Over the past 6 years, my mantra has been to “Do the things that utterly scare me but I have wanted to do so badly.”
I have chosen to be bold….be fearless. You should too. Do allll the things that scare you. You won’t regret it. I promise.
