Certified Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, and Certified in Beatboxing Fitness
"Your journey starts with you making the choice to begin. It doesn't come easy to everyone and once you start, don't stop."
I found myself at my heaviest after retiring from the USAF and when I decided enough was enough, especially after losing my brother and sister to preventable health diseases. I began training with ISSA to learn all I needed to learn about fitness and nutrition so I could help myself and others. I have been a certified personal trainer and certified nutritionist since 2020 and recently became certified in Beatboxing Fitness in February 2023.
My journey is far from over, so I say it all the time... we are in this together!

Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Xtreme Hip Hop Step Instrtuctor
I'm Keedah, certified personal trainer and newly certified Xtreme Hip Hop instructor. I have always had a passion for health and wellness and became more physically active after high school. Throughout the years however, my commitment to being consistent fluctuated as did my weight.
I weighed my heaviest in 2018, and along with it came some unwanted changes in my health. In 2019 I decided to change the way I ate to become healthier. My weight began to shed!! Which gave me more energy and confidence to get back to exercising!
In late 2020 at the age of 43, I decided to become a trainer to assist, inspire and support others in achieving their fitness goals!
