Fearless Fitness: From I.R to Personal Trainer!
I had the amazing chance to interview Sharon Cheruto Eshuchi, an amazing lady who studied I.R in university but is now a professional certified personal trainer. I love her story because it shows how your life can completely change direction from where you originally thought it was going and it is okay to study your passions. Read on to find out more about her and get a few secrets on losing weight and getting fit.You studied International Relations right? Yes, I studied IR at Liberty University in Virginia, USA.
That is super different from physical fitness, did you work in I.R at all? I have always worked in the IR field. Since college I have worked for several NGOs until 2014 when I left to pursue business.
For how long and what changed your course in life from that path to the one you are currently on?(6 years) I think over time, passions do change and in my case, that’s what happened. I still love IR and would still pursue consultancy work in it but it was time for a change then.
Why Fitness? Good question. I’m going to steal something my husband said here. 🙂 He once told me that what if God wants to use you and you’re not healthy enough to carry out the task! That hit me really hard. I actually had started working out religiously after I got married. No reason there, I just woke up one day and thought hmm, its time I changed my lifestyle and intentionally exercise.
What are your goals, vision and mission with Fearless Fitness?
Fearless Fitness is a lifestyle of holistic health. It is an in-home personal training program designed specifically for women to enhance their physical and spiritual well-being. It’s not something that you will hardly find in a gym. My programs are personalized to fit your fitness needs and your current fitness level. I call it Boutique Personal Training because no two programs are the same – since no two women are the same.
Fearless was birthed out of my own life and is the story behind how I came to better health; spiritually and physically and my desire to share that with other women so that they can grow spiritually while they also develop the discipline of physical exercise. It’s helped me build a strong relationship with God by instilling the discipline I so desperately needed. People’s desire for fitness is built on vanity, rather than health. A majority of women then avoid and resent it because we are not all built to look like supermodels. It’s not about me getting my bikini bod. That’s not realistic and our society has wrong beliefs about what fitness and health are all about.
Health, fitness, losing weight, etc are some of the biggest things people struggle with; what are some basic, valuable tips that you can give anyone out there who has been on this roller coaster ride of trying to get their body to look like a super model’s on the cover of a magazine?
