It’s Just Not An Option by Ivanna Baron

 

I met Ivanna in the summer of 2015 in Denver when we were both attending FitBloggin. We hit it off and were even roommates the next month at Blog Fest. Ivanna is chill and low key but is the BUSINESS!!!  I love her clarity for what she wants to do and I love her follow through for doing it!

Here’s her story:

F.I.G.H.T. by Jenn Hall

I met Jenn Hall at a training she was hosting in 2009, for a class I never got to teach because I tore my meniscus the next month. 🙂 We managed to keep in touch over the years and connected on both a personal and professional level.  I could say a lot about Jenn and her resume is extensive and amazing but her behind the scenes fights are what make her strong and a person I consider a rock star when it comes to fighting back.
