Monique was born in Colorado but her family got a phone call that moved them to Florida when she was just 9 months old. As a child she was diagnosed with obesity at just the age of 10. Her obesity caused her to be very shy and not have a lot of confidence to which she struggled with most of her life. Her passion for fitness didn’t blossom until her sophomore year of high school. One day she woke up and decided enough was enough, it’s time to make a change. She put away all the junk food and turned to a pescetarian lifestyle, which excludes any red meat or pork from her diet. Then she started working out in the apartment gym her and her mother were living in at the time. In the span of 9 months she lost over 60lbs and gained immense confidence she never knew she had before. Her drive and motivation to change her life transformed into wanting to help others reach their goals and gain the confidence they never knew they had. From the pain she felt growing up she knew she didn’t want others to feel the way she did due to her weight. Her goal is to uplift others and leave a positive impact on the world. Outside of the gym, she also has a huge love for music. Graduated from Hillsborough Community College with an AA Degree for Music back in 2018. Whether she’s at the gym or a music festival you will always see her dance to the beat of her own drum.
