Renee Pickett is proof that if you don’t give up on your goals, they will come true. When Pickett was a kid, doctors told her that she would need a walker and should never be apart of intense activities. She did not let that hold her back and was strong enough to overcome the fear, frustration and sadness that came with her journey. She started doing physical therapy and slowly progressed with her health.
Pickett is now a mother, personal trainer and master trainer by Zumba Fitness. Zumba is a high intensity workout with synced music that combines weight, muscle conditioning, and cardio. She went from being told she should never be a part of intense activities to training others to be healthy and strong.
Pickett believes that the key to overcome any health challenge is to keep moving despite all of the challenges you face. She is an empowering, cheerful woman who always has a smile on her face.
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. No challenges should stop you from unlocking your gift. We are all special and unique. Set goals, achieve, progress,” Pickett said.
Pickett has truly dedicated her life to help others live healthy and happy while overcoming challenges. She is proof that if you overcome fear and work hard, your dreams can come true.
