“Once an overweight child who became a very overweight adult, I know firsthand how difficult it is to make change. I knew I didn’t want to continue living unhealthily forever but I didn’t know how to do it on my own. I needed a supportive environment along with some encouraging coaches to help me get into gear.”
Brooke found this supportive community in 2012 with the newly opened Boutique Fitness. “The coaches there would help build my foundation for sustainable weight-loss and ultimately help me shed 70+ lbs. It’s been an honor to be a part of the Boutique family and six years later, I would have never dreamed of being on the other side of the Boutique Fitness stopwatch coaching new and familiar faces.”
Today Brooke rows recreationally and competitively, cycles, runs, and even teaches rowing classes at Track + Channel. When she’s not coaching or exercising, Brooke organizes a free community event called Reggae On West Beach in New Bedford.
