free to be
As a busy mom of three, I am all too familiar with the demands to be superwoman and put everyone else’s needs in front of our own. I want to create a movement where women learn that putting themselves first is an absolute must in life. When we make our self-care a priority, we have more to offer everyone in our lives that we love and care about. I will be helping women take care of their physical, mental and emotional health with simple and effective fitness, sustainable nutrition, a supportive community and resources to help with our mental health. This freedom for self-care will help women all over the world be their happiest, healthiest selves allowing for others to join in the movement and creating a healthier planet overall.
What fascinates me is how women, mainly Mamas, are SO amazing at taking care of others, yet feel guilt for taking care of themselves. It is truly remarkable how women juggle through life and multiple tasks they can accomplish in a day, yet loving themselves gets bumped down the list. I have dedicated my life to helping women put their own oxygen mask
on first so that their true light shines in this world and so that they are better able to love and care for others as their own buckets are full!
When asked why she coaches, this is what Tamara shared:
As a very young child I was sexually abused and led to believe that I was unworthy of love as a result. Even though I grew up in a very loving home with parents who were always there for me and a brother I adored, I was always trying to prove my worth to everyone in my life. No matter how much my family and friends shared their love for me, it was as though my body and brain could not accept this as truth.
After the birth of my third child, I experienced severe depression and anxiety to the point that I no longer wanted to live. With the help of a social worker, psychiatrist for medication monitoring, counsellor, and family I was able to turn my life around and I fell in love with fitness.
My fitness passion quickly turned into a fitness addition until I discovered the amazing benefits of Coaching! With the help of a coach, I was able to turn my addiction into a healthy passion. Knowing the two extremes of what I lived, I now know what is possible for all of us and that self love and care is a necessity in life!
From a very early age, I craved feeling worthy of love and acceptance. Along the way, I discovered that I AM worthy of love from others as well as from myself. This ignited a passion in me to help others that has continued to shape my life. My commitment is that every woman will feel worthy and accepted by others, but most importantly by HERSELF!!!!
