passion + purpose
After caring for her husband Bill who was diagnosed with Stage4 Bladder Cancer in 2016, she realized that working out and eating healthy is only part of the total health equation. She believes that along with exercise, sticking to a healthy diet, and his ability to keep a positive mindset, Bill was able to overcome his dire diagnoses and continues to thrive today.
Thus, the Ultimate U was formed to go beyond just fitness and nutrition to address people’s overall health from the inside out.
