OWNING HER FITNESS JOURNEY
Brittany Ann has been an athlete for most of her life. Growing up, she was involved in dance, gymnastics, karate, ballet, cheerleading— you name it, she did it. But during her teen years, Brittany lost interest in sports due to her physical insecurities, saying, “My skinny body and extra bones (non-cancerous tumors) that protruded out made me feel insecure. My insecurities eventually kept me from participating in sports simply because I didn’t want to wear shorts.”
Brittany Ann underwent surgery in college, and it was then that her passion for fitness and her self-love journey was born. Numerous friends suggested that Brittany enter bikini competitions, but the thought of walking in front of hundreds of strangers scared her.
In 2018, she finally decided to compete and immediately fell in love. “Competing gave me goals to work towards and strengthened my confidence in my own body,” says Brittany.
CONTINUING TO COMPETE + PUSH PAST HER LIMITS
In 2019, Brittany Ann competed once more and won the entire show. That moment gave her the final push she needed to fully commit to her dreams, and she decided to leave her teaching career to pursue fitness full-time.
“It was the best thing I could have done! While things have not always been perfect, I wouldn’t change this experience for anything. I’ve gained so much knowledge about myself, and my goal is to always give back to others and help them in their life's journey. I’m still teaching in a sense, and I’m excited to see where this road leads me.” -Brittany Ann
