Get Ready to be "STOKED"

. . .Just when you think you are fit, Kira Stokes walks in the room and I suddenly feel like a pencil with a very large eraser-head. Kira Stokes is a personal trainer and fitness expert at the top of her game. She has revolutionized how people workout through strength and cardio training in an unorthodox yet a very "yes you can do it" kind of way. I first saw her at a fitness conference in LA last year. Stokes was leading a small group fitness class for Reebok wearing little to nothing. I was mesmerized by her body, workout method and confidence. Why yes, I was having a girl crush! What?

You can obviously tell that she works hard for that amazing body and good for her! She is showing us how hard work pays off. She's amazing to me! Look, whether it's a picture, a person or a motivational phrase that gets you to think differently about yourself and who you want to be in a positive way, then be motivated, be YOU and go get yours! Thanks Ms. Kira Stokes for getting me motivated to do more and continue to be a hard core woman.
