Fit Balm is more than just body care products. It is something I’ve started as a way to share my knowledge about living a healthy lifestyle. Taking care of your skin is only one small part of what it means to be healthy. To me it means living an active lifestyle, eating real food, surrounding yourself with positive people (aka reduce stress levels as much as possible!!) and of course, taking care of your body.
My journey to wellness started about 6 years ago when I started school to become a Spa Therapist. During my training, I learned about how our body functions, the way our muscles work, and how to apply massage to help treat pain and relax the body. I also learned how to make many natural products as well as the effects that essential oils can have on the body. From there on I started making these products for some close friends and myself.
Fast forward three years later to when I found CrossFit. I started to realize that it was next to impossible to eat unhealthily and do this crazy intense CrossFit thing. I started to change the way I thought about health. Now it wasn’t about working out and rewarding myself with a glass of wine and some bad food. It was no longer a means to just look good or stay skinny. It was an eye-opening experience. It became easy to realize that putting cheap and toxic products on my skin was just as bad as eating all those unhealthy things we love to have. That’s not to say I don’t still treat myself and eat unhealthy once in awhile but just think of how often you shampoo your hair, or use soap or put anything on your skin!? ALL THE TIME. Once I realized this I knew it was time to make a change.
Pushing myself to be fitter, faster and healthier every day made it easy to come up with the name for my company. Being FIT to me is a lifestyle. It encompasses so much more to me than just doing a workout or lifting some weights. It means pushing yourself, working hard, being strong mentally and physically, eating clean, taking care of yourself and helping the people around you do the same. I couldn’t have thought of a better way to express my company than by using that word. Balm simply just means a lotion or rub used to restore, heal and soothe the skin. Thus, Fit Balm was created.
With the help of friends, family and the amazing community I am proud to be a part of, my company has gotten off the ground and is starting to evolve. I’ve had so much amazing feedback, insight and ideas from everyone and I am SO happy that I have taken this path to help provide another source of healthy living for you all.
