Most rewarding moment 

One of my clients lacked self confidence and mentioned that her body was not because she had children. She has been really consistent with working out and doing some self work to improve her mental and emotional health. She recently posted a picture of herself in a crop top and said, "I look beautiful today. This is the first time in a long time that I have been able to look in the mirror. Shout to my trainer for all of the mental and physical work she does with me."
