Never too late
Laura Castel de Oro Cameron
Once upon a time there was a little girl who never exercised or played outside. Her neighbors actually thought she went away to school 😅
She grew up and still rarely exercised. She joined a bootcamp in 2003 and that was it for that decade.
Then her daughter grew up and asked her to get active and become more social in late 2009. She, of course, waited for the new year because that’s what all good procrastinators do.
⏰Timing is everything. Walked into a class that married music and movement. Zumba led to Jazzercize and that led to cardio kickboxing and sweating to a crazy pounding beat…it was over! Obsessed, life changed and determined to share the medicine that exercise is with everyone who will listen.
Flash forward 12 years and now this girl…me!! gets to lead others on a group exercise floor and in small group trainings. I also get to train other instructors who are looking for continuing education and new formats to teach. Some may think your 50s are the end but I feel like I’m just getting started.
Oh yes I forgot to mention I also lost over 25 pounds. I forget about that because the things I’m most grateful for are the loss of depression and negative thinking, the new friendships I’ve made, and the opportunities I used to just dream about that have become realities. So grateful for WARRIOR Rhythm and WARRIOR Strength to be the brands I found a home with. I continue to grow and learn with this magnificent team, community and decided leadership of Ellen de Werd.
Moral of the story..it’s never too late to start something, to try something uncomfortable 📸, to believe you can make a dream come true.
Not even close to The End.
