You may be wondering, “who is this chick and why am I reading this?” Well, let me give you the somewhat short answer. My name is Darielle, I’m a 30 year old mother of two boys with another boy on the way. I’m the “First Lady”, “Boss Lady”, “Mama Bear”, whatever, of Redcon1. The wife to CEO of Redcon1 and all around advocate of staying fit by day and drinking wine by night. I feel pretty confident in sharing what I know due to my own personal experiences and now growing my third little guy.
A brief background on myself: I got into weight training when I was 16 while battling my own teenage demons. Over the years, that turned into an overall love of fitness and training in the gym. At 22, I became certified as a personal trainer through NASM & NSCA, worked as a fitness trainer at Florida State University while studying Dietetics and ultimately competed in my first NPC show in 2010 (24 yo). Now at 30, through my own trial and errors as well as taking what I learned through my education, I’ve been successful in shaping my lifestyle into a manageable one, fitting in working out, and eating a balanced healthy diet while running a household of crazy boys! From my competing days, to now, I’ve learned a tremendous amount of what is beneficial and what can be somewhat harmful when it comes to reaching and maintaining fitness goals. I’m going to share with you my “street cred” on this whole Fit Pregnancy thing, because I do have some pretty dramatic differences in my pregnancies that I feel can back up the studies that are out there and my own personal theories.
