Laughter fills the air when you are within any vicinity to Carina Davis. Kind, down to earth and always with a smile, Carina brings an energy to the room that can only be described as magnetic. Though full of life with a fearlessness to progress, Carina began her fitness journey battling life-threatening viral meningitis. Surviving this, as you can imagine, changed the way Carina viewed life.
Longing to powerlift, Carina previously feared what many of us fear, singlets and weight classes. An area not often talked about yet so many women can relate to, Carina’s new zest for life ultimately gave her the clarity to say goodbye to the scale and start loving the body she was born with. A theme synonyms with many women who embrace the SHW class, Carina’s strength and confidence soon skyrocketed as her mindset shifted from “get skinny” to “get strong”.
In this episode, Carina and I talk about her wonderful father and what his legacy means to her. Listen as we go over:
