In addition to reaching aesthetic goals, her mission is to help make healthy living as easy as possible, and ultimately improving the long term health of her clients.
“I understand weight management and body composition first hand, because I was my first client. As a young adult, I struggled with being overweight in part from not being active enough and eating lots of traditional southern (i.e. soul) foods. I've made poor food decisions partly out of habit and not knowing what healthy food really was or what it could be. In order to become the healthier person I am today, it took me learning how to exercise the right way, and not only finding healthy foods that taste good to me, but actually learning how to eat those foods throughout the day. That's what it takes to not only have the body, but live a healthier life. I hope to empart the knowledge from my education and personal experience so that someone else can realize their healthier self.” - O. Henderson
When she isn't training clients, Octavia enjoys participating in road races, obstacle courses, and mountain biking. On rest days she enjoys lots of mind and body numbing tv, couch potato style. She can be contacted at Ovhenderson (at) OhFitnessLLC (dot) com.
