Not Me: Holly

My name is Holly. I’m a fitness competitor, personal trainer and runner, so, as you can imagine, fitness has always been a large part of my life. The biggest thing to understand about living a healthy lifestyle is that it doesn’t happen by accident; it takes commitment and requires you to be proactive about your nutrition and exercise.

Protecting yourself from being a victim of crime is NO DIFFERENT; it does not happen by accident and also takes commitment and a proactive stance everyday. But just like fitness, being deliberate about how you defend yourself eventually becomes habit, and that habit leads to freedom. Freedom from the fear of not leaving your house because you are scared of being attacked, freedom from the fear of being a victim, freedom from the fear of being a statistic. At the end of the day, you are your own first responder, make sure you are prepared!
