Q: What should the world know about your testimony?
A: Growing up I had plenty of sports trophies, but not many girl friends. I began to struggle with self-esteem. I just wanted to be like the other little girls. I began to surrender the beauty of Dominique to what I thought a girl should be…all of this just to fit in. Shifting from this confident athletic young girl into what I believed was socially accepted; I began the search, I wanted to know, who was Dominique?
Q: What was the biggest key in shifting your focus to fitness?
A: After going on a blind date with a friend of mine and hearing my date say “ I never told you I like big girls” to his friend, I turned to fitness, FAST. I began to enjoy the journey of finding Dominique. On this journey, I began to make physical, mental, and spiritual changes necessary to fill my personal love tank.
It was not what others thought of me that called for this change; it was centered around how I felt about myself that allowed me to seek my personal legend and continue on this path. Consistency brought forth the results I always envisioned. I began to fill myself up with so much love from the physical care it needed to the mental that it started to overflow to those who surrounded me.
Q: How has faith impacted your fitness journey?
A: Life is nothing but a journey; your story has already been written, It is solely up to the individual to fully enjoy each step. As you enter your process understand that it is only a part of the journey and to trust the process 100%. I learned to first trust Him, and then trust myself.
Stay tuned for a workout from Dom Talley!
