Last month I catered a fashion show for Vagus Fitness. Catering is something I have only done one other time, and that was for Vagus Fitness the year before. I have been a client of Vagus for a year now and this boutique gym has empowered me to get in shape.

Over a year ago I decided that I needed to get my act together! No more diets, no more fads, no more feeling like I was the heaviest person in the room.

I know I will not be a size 0, nor do I want to be. Vagus has inspired me to be in the best shape I CAN BE! I am stronger than I can imagine and feel incredible. It is amazing that getting stronger, working on my cardio health and within a year I have gone down 4 sizes.

I am pretty proud of myself!

When I was coming up with the gluten free and dairy free menu for Vagus Fitness I decided that I would do up a cookie bar. 8 different cookies all using gluten free and dairy free ingredients.
