Happy Monday, babes!
You know what I've been thinking lately? I get to chat with all of these INCREDIBLE people on Instagram every single day, and yet I feel like I hardly know anything about you guys. We all have such amazing stories - so many passions, ambitions, and goals; so may fears, doubts and challenges. So, I wanted to take this opportunity to get to know you all better!
But, before I do that, I wanted to start by letting you know a little bit about myself first.
So, hi! I'm Larissa. I'm a 25-year old personal trainer and wellness coach currently living in Toronto, ON. Here are 5 random facts you may not know about me:
Fact #1: I've travelled to 18 countries in my lifetime - including Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Greece, Austria, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and Haiti.
Fact #2: I absolutely hate feet. I think feet are the grossest things ever, and I have a really hard time with pedicures. (Not even kidding, sometimes I will "opt out" of the complimentary foot massage.)
Fact #3: I grew up with a heart condition called Atrial Septal Defect. Every child is born with a hole that separates the left & right atrium; however, it's naturally supposed to close by the time you're a few months old. It wasn't until I was 13 YEARS old that doctors ended up discovering that the hole was still open & causing many complications. I had to go through surgery to get it fixed.
Fact #4: I'm a HUGE Disney fan and can literally repeat every single line in my favourite movie, Aladdin. (Hint: I'm not kidding. I used to have it on cassette tape back in the day & listened to it before bed almost every night.)
Fact #5: I have a lot of extra skin from my dramatic 1-year & 60-pound weight loss. It still makes me SUPER self-conscious, but I'm working on it every day. I try to encourage my clients that the slower your weight loss process, the less likely you will experience the same issues. Just have patience & trust the process!
Now it's YOUR turn! What are your dreams? What places have you visited? What's your least favourite food? Leave me some things that I may not know about you BELOW!
With love and wellness,
