I am writing to you with the biggest smile on my face. And to be honest, I have tears swelling up in my eyes because I feel so passionate about the words I am about to write.
After almost a full year of construction, I was able to open The Fit Flamingo Studio and it has been an absolute dream come true. I can’t even begin to describe how good it feels to work with women every single day.
The work we do within this studio space is transformational. It is healing and empowering and it’s my promise that if you train with me, you will not leave the same. You will be deeply impacted from the inside out. You will feel supported and encouraged in a way you never have before and you will find a new love for yourself that has been missing for too long.
In April of 2018, I took the plunge and purchased a brand new 40 foot shipping container, customized with foam insulation, electric wiring, an A/C unit, and a built-in sliding glass door & window. My dad gave me backyard space outside his company’s office in Downtown Plano, Texas and I worked part time as an accountant for his environmental consulting firm. While my studio space was being renovated, I got to work alongside my dad and learn first hand how to run a successful business.
The Studio officially opened March 2019 and the very next day, I got engaged to the man of my dreams!! 6 months later, we were married! Wow, it’s safe to safe that my first year in business was quite a whirlwind with all of its excitement, challenges, and newness. But the timing of it all was so perfect.
talk about a transformation!

So with that said, I want to ask you this: what big dreams are on your heart? What are the tiny whispers telling you to pursue? Big dreams can seem pretty overwhelming. But little by little, a little becomes a lot.
Dear friends, the dreams on your heart are not there by mistake. They are your calling!!!! So please, I urge you. Pursue them at all costs. Do not die with your music still in you!!! Find a tiny tiny small way that you can set out to pursue your dreams TODAY.
For example, you can:
01: Listen to a podcast that challenges your thoughts.
02: Sit in a meditation and visualize yourself living out your dream.
03: Tell a friend what you really want to do with your life.
04: Journal out your biggest life goal and then list out all the things you’ll need to do to get there.
05: Reach out for professional help. If you need to work with a counselor or a personal trainer or a coach of any sort, do not hesitate to reach out!
So, what will you do today?
There is magic inside of you.
You are already enough.
And you are more beautiful and magnificent than you know.
I hope that me pursuing my dreams will give you the permission you need to pursue your own. I deeply desire to use my own struggles, insecurities, fears, failures, and inadequacies to help you see that you are not alone. We are all in this together. And little by little, we will transform into the women we have always been. Sometimes we just need a little help from each other to recognize the beauty and power already within us.
With love & light,
Your trainer - Madison.
