Ivette's story

Hi! My name is Ivette and I'm the mother of two teenagers. I'm very proud to say I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, but I left my Island for 11 years. I always new I wanted to come back and in 2012 I finally did! That year I met my husband at a local Gym, he was my spinning instructor. Long story short, we fell in love and got married in 2017 (right after hurricane Maria). But let me go a little back in time... As a young girl I always played sports and I always had a dream of having my own business (my dad had his own business so I wanted to be like him). Life led me to another places, stopped playing sports and worked for several companies. It was all good, but I new one day I needed to accomplish my dreams! Ok, now let's go back to 2012... After I met my current husband, I started spinning everyday to the point I fell in love with the sport (the instructor too!! LOL) and got certified. Started giving classes and learned I not only enjoy and feel passionate about this, but I'm really good at helping people who want to achieve a healthy lifestyle through this sport. Today... I'm 46 years old and said: "why not?" "I have raised my kids" "I have a husband that supports my decisions and can be my business partner" "This is my moment to make my dreams come true!" "It's never too late!" So this is my life compendium, hope you enjoyed it and I also hope I inspire other women to follow their dreams no matter their age.
