To know Liz is to be in the presence of one of the most positive people you’ll ever meet. I first met Liz Tizzard when I was interviewing her for a volunteer profile at my workplace. Liz is a giver. She gives back to community. She gives to her family. She gives to anyone she comes into contact with, and her spirit is infectious.
And she began volunteering with the organization that I work with and I had the chance to work with her closely. So when she told me she was venturing into a new business as a fitness coach of the Fun Girls Fit Club, I knew that if anyone could inspire people to take time for themselves, it was Liz.
But an interesting thing happened. In following Liz’s journey online, I read her captions with her sweaty selfies, and realized that fitness wasn’t about just being stronger or fitter for Liz. Fitness brought Liz back to herself. Motherhood had changed Liz, as it does all mothers, but she felt she had lost herself – and boy could I relate.
Sitting down to talk to Liz, we discussed her journey to self-re-discovery, how sometimes the most positive people suffer in silence, and what she hopes to bring to her clients (and the world!). It was truly an inspiring chat.
