WORK OUT | IRON SHARPENS IRON

After all the years of living a healthy lifestyle, there's nothing more rewarding than hitting your goals. I've noticed that working out with a partner helped me reach several of my goals. I've been extremely fortunate to try different work outs by attending fitness events. Surrounding yourself with those who have similar goals than you can truly be uplifting. 

I met Meagan Kong at the adidas Fitness X event a couple of months ago, and we instantly were on the same wave length. Not only is she  a natural beaut, she is a professional dancer & an up & coming fitness influencer. I could tell instantly she stays true to herself. You can definitely catch the realness in her vibes on her IG - @meagankong.  Glad to have cross paths because now we have created a work out designed for the bad ass females who want to push limits together!
