Addys is a cradle Catholic, a long-time parishioner of St. Raphael parish in St Petersburg, FL, and founder of Fit Soul Wellness, a practice rooted in fidelity to Christ. Addys earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Florida International University, Miami, Fl and a Master of Business Administration from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.
She loves learning and discovering God’s hidden presence in life’s surprises. After a career as a Medical Technologist, MT (ASCP), Addys turned in her lab coat for an MBA and a brand management career through which she met and married the love of her life. Many prayers were answered, and they became parents of two wonderful children. God was always there, lovingly directing every challenge including a surprise move from NJ to beautiful St. Petersburg, Fl.
Some years later, Jesus and Mary would be walking alongside her, blessing Addys as she journeyed through aggressive triple negative breast cancer, emerging cancer free. This journey was where the real adventure began. Addys learned how to trust and surrender all to God. This is when our Blessed Mother drew her near and brought her closer to Jesus. SoulCore came into her life and enriched her love of the rosary, inspiring her to become a SoulCore leader.
Addys felt called to transform her lifelong love and practice of physical fitness into her own fitness practice. A practice where others can embrace a wellness of body, mind, and soul that is faithful to the Catholic Christian faith Tradition. She became a certified instructor in fitness modalities consistent with her faith and Fit Soul Wellness was born.
Addys extends this invitation “God gives each of his children a body to honor Him with, integrated with a mind to be used for good, and a soul to give Him praise. We can do so in all things, including fitness and exercise. Please join me as we grow stronger together in body, mind, and soul.”
