Meet Alicia Woods, the energetic and driven creator of Alicia Monae Fitness and the face of Swift Fit Kitchen. Having been overweight for most of her childhood, Alicia experienced bullying from an early age, which led to insecurities and depression.
Somewhere along the way, she realized she wasn’t not living the life she was meant to; so, she finally began “living her truth” in 2007! She made the varsity volleyball team in high school, which is when the weight began to drop. From there, she gained new friends that became sisters, and she was finally able to embrace who she was becoming and be confident in herself! She dropped about 50lbs from her freshman year in high school – and kept it off! Now, she wants to help others do the same!
On her blog, Alicia provides advice for health freaks, fitness fanatics and beginners alike. You can find her favorite workouts, posts on eating healthy on a budget and on the go, and so much more. She also talks about the training and prep required for being a bikini competitor, (go girl!) and shares some of her favorite healthy (and paleo) recipes!
