"I want to show others that you too can defeat the odds, get healthy, strengthen your faith, feel confident in your own skin and create your best self. Fitness gave me the confidence I never had before, says Johnette. "I think it’s important to have your own style, love who you are, find inspiration from others and most importantly feel beautiful!"
