Q: So tell me a little about yourself! 

Hi! I’m Leticia, Tish for short. I am from a small town in southwestern Pennsylvania. I am a senior at Waynesburg University, where I am majoring in Business Management with a minor in Accounting. I am a math nerd and love anything that has to do with numbers. I am also studying to take the NASM exam so that I can become a personal trainer. I started my fitness journey about three years ago and lost 100 pounds. I actually just competed (and nationally qualified) in two NPC Bikini Competitions. I have been through quite a few obstacles over the years, but health and fitness are my passions.

Q: What is your Instagram “story?” Did you create your account with the intention of it being health and fitness related, or did it start off as more personal?

When I first started my fitness journey, I used IG to browse through inspiring quotes, pictures, and accounts. I learned SO much through social media and researching online, and was inspired to start an Instagram account of my own. In the beginning, I would just post healthy meal ideas and a few things a week pertaining to fitness, but as more and more people began to follow me, my content began to grow. I love that I can inspire and motivate so many people on a daily basis. The amount of love and support that you receive from people that have never met you truly amazes me. I have formed some amazing friendships and have been blessed with so many opportunities because of social media and Instagram. I am very thankful for the audience and the ability to be able to inspire others.

Q: While we know you LOVE to workout, what’s your favorite way to relax and unwind on a “rest” day?

I do LOVE to workout; it is something that truly makes me happy and I look forward to it each and every day, but we all need to take a rest day for optimal recovery My typical rest day usually includes a good book, a warm cup of tea, and the fuzziest pajamas I own. I love reading books about self-discovery and I always trying to learn more. I am also a full time student so I always have studying/homework to do as well.

Q: What do you feel is the largest obstacle facing the nutrition/fitness world today?

I think that the biggest issue in the fitness world today is that everyone wants to be someone else. There are SO many different ways that you can better yourself and your health. There are thousands of forms of exercise and each one has its benefits. Crossfit, powerlifting, bodybuilding, yoga, pilates, running, and even dancing are all awesome forms of exercise. I want people to know that you do not have to do what everyone else is doing. Do something that you truly enjoy and something that makes you happy. Fitness and working out shouldn’t be something you feel like you have to do to burn calories, but something that you look forward to each day. tish 2

Q: What is your dream job?

I don’t necessarily have a “dream” job. I am a huge goal setter and I know what I want when it comes to my life. I want to finish up my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and pass my NASM exam by the end of 2017 so that I can begin helping others reach their health and fitness goals. I plan to one day open up my own gym where I will serve as a personal trainer and manager. My biggest goal in life is to motivate, inspire, and help others reach their goals. I want people to understand that you are able to do anything that you put your mind to, and that your body is capable of amazing things. I also want to help kids, especially in my area, learn about a healthy lifestyle.

Q: If you could have an unlimited supply of any ENLIGHTENED product, which one would you choose?

I can’t speak for the ice cream because I have never tried it, but the Sriracha crisps are my absolute fave. I add them to salads, stir fry, as a side with my veggies, and sometimes even on top of ice cream!
