You may have never seen this face and/or may have never even heard of her name but I have and I’m so blessed because of it.
This right here is my “quiet storm,” my inspiration from a far, Ms. Cynthia Florence. A senior software engineer by job title and full fledged health, wellness and fitness beast by passion and heart. Cynthia owns Pure Energy Fitness in Marietta, GA. We met in Atlanta a little over two years ago when she stopped by the Piloxing table at the SCW Mania in Atlanta to chat with me a little bit about the class. I’ve been attached to her ever since.
What I respect and love about Cynthia isn’t just what she does but how she does it. I had a chance to go and do a class at her studio last year and I was so inspired by the way she challenges and feeds into the people she serves. You can tell they feel welcomed, dedicated and supported. It was probably the first time I ever considered owning my studio. She made me feel like it was possible. She made me feel like it was worth it. I saw the commitment Cynthia had beyond just racking up certifications (and she has quite a few) and making herself look good. Her story speaks for itself.
Cynthia can lead with compassion because she’s been there. And can I say for someone who joked with me about how I caught her at a good time to profile her because 50 is right around the corner 🙂 , she looks absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! And not only does she look fantastic, she is intelligent, business savvy, invested in what she does and focused. Did I also mention she gets extra points in my book for keeping me in the know of all the hot vegan spots in the ATL when I come through that way? The plant powered sisterhood is strong!
