*I earned my bachelors in Biochemistry from Nigeria and my masters in Biology from Harvard. However, i am a great passion for fitness and health. I proposed and started a health and fitness ministry for my local church where i will primarily coach and teach the women. We are in the process of building a dedicated room for all things relating to the ministry. I have started to earn certifications in various aspects of what i like. I was on my way to earning the group fitness certification with secular organization until our paths crossed and I switched. The reason for that being that my main goal and focus is to pursue this as a means of evangelism and also to bring health and fitness awareness to the christian world. Having said all this, faithfully fit seems to align with my overall vision and i would like to partner with your company. -Massachusetts
*Hey Donna! Just letting you know that I spoke at the LoveLady Center this morning. The Holy Spirit was so awesome. I felt it when i walked into the building. My message was "A Strong Woman Through The Holy Spirit." There were close to 150 ladies there. The hospital has a total of 400 ladies and 100 children. They are wanting to work with me on starting the fitness program. We will be getting in touch with you hopefully soon to get the first 2 trainers certified. -Alabama
*I am interested becoming a faith based personal trainer. I am currently ACE certified, and two years ago I became the Director of our church’s Community Center and Fitness Club. I think this would be a great addition to my current certifications. -Wisconsin
