Mom and fitness competitor

Tammy was tired of feeling like a frumpy mom so she decided to become a fitness competitor.  Competing keeps her motivated and it’s a great way for her to stay healthy.  For Tammy, family comes first but fitness takes the rest of her time.  I am so excited to share with you that she will be stepping on stage in less than a week! I know! How exciting! Tammy has been preparing for several weeks and the time has come to show all of her hard work and discipline on stage.   I have no doubt she is going to rock the WBFF Orlando stage.  I am so excited for her and the best part is that I am actually attending this show with my clothing line Affitnity.  I will be able to see her on stage and meet her in person! With out further adieu please meet Tammy, a mom and fitness competitor…
