All women. All ages.

All stories. All destinations.

It starts here. With a single CHOICE.

"Why did you choose that word, that name? What does it mean?"

When I found FIERCE, I was desperate.  It was December, 2014, and I was questioning everything in my I got here, my purpose, my relationships, and my heart.  I needed to find a way back, back to Derith. 

As I was feverishly searching for anything to pull me out of this spiral, a quote popped up in front of me, and there it was:

“This is the year I will be stronger, braver, kinder, & unstoppable. This is the year I will be FIERCE by Choice.”

I realized that FIERCE was what I used to be:  strong and feminine, healthy and balanced, fit and fun, content and driven, confident and curious, and above all else, truly, wholeheartedly happy.

I knew I could get there again & was determined to figure out how.

As a personal trainer of 16 years at this point, the one thing I was certain of was fitness so I used that as my starting point.

reached out to the women in my life and asked them to join me on this adventure of finding our true happy place by simply prioritizing ourselves and our health.   

And it worked...

Now, hundreds of lives have been changed, thousands of pounds have been lost, even more inches are gone; and there are countless stories of women embracing change, choosing to show up, getting back up, the power of community, & new beliefs about what is possible.

It started with fitness but FIERCE quickly evolved into a way of life that nurtures balance, acceptance, self-compassion, self-care, and deep friendships.

Fight for what we believe in

Inspire others to do the same

Encourage others along the way

Reach out to those that need us

Coach ourselves and each other

Empower all to believe it is possible


This is about starting where YOU are right now, finding the path that best fits you, and pushing yourself beyond where you thought you could go!
