I woke up one hot fall morning in Tampa, FL with a yearning. It didn’t come out of nowhere, it had been building for quite some time. Jake and I had been throwing around this idea that was more of a dream. What if we could just drop everything, quit our jobs, buy a VW camper van, move to Europe, and give up this life that the world had told us we had to live in order to be happy?
I spent a couple of weeks doing research, finding out how to get visa’s, looking into completely intact VW’s and how much they cost and figuring out how in the hell we were going to get Aayliah (our fur baby) across the pond....... All this seemed like a mountain, a mountain I quickly learned was illogical. We wanted a family, a big yard, jobs that we loved, and that we were passionate about. If we left we would be setting those core values, those real dreams, to the side, and did we want to do that? Jake and I love a good adventure, but we do not prefer to pee in holes, to work dead-end jobs, or to live in really really small spaces for extended periods of time. We are dreamers, but dreamers for our future, not Instagram’s. Weeks after that morning, after hours searching, the feeling still hadn’t gone away though.
I knew I was made to do something more. So I did as I always do, I sat down and figured out my truth. Who am I? 1. I am into fitness BIG TIME. 2. I love, love, love, love helping people in fitness. 3. I am a good coach! 4. I still want a VW Camper Van. In that moment, The Shoe Bus was born. What if I could combine our love for travel and my love for coaching??? With questions like this swirling through my head, I spent a couple of days looking into mobile fitness boutiques. Hmm... Nothing like this yet.
