Today I speak with Alyssa Flores, founder and head coach of Dumbbells and Doughnuts, which is a coaching community. Alyssa speaks about her introduction to distorted eating habits and how that eventually lead her to the fitness community. Alyssa overcame extreme food restriction to find a healthier love of her body. She started the coaching community in early 2020 because she saw the need to connect coaches who truly care to empathize with every step of their clients’ journeys. She now leads a 13-coach team that coaches both men and women. 

Alyssa talks about how she balances her life with fitness and coaching. You don’t want to miss this interview!
