Welcome to Fit 2 Fab Lifestyle! Let me introduce myself. My name is Rosemary Homeister. I was a professional thoroughbred jockey for the last 23 years. Becoming the 2nd most winning, female jockey, in the industry, of all time. Total wins 2, 784 with over $51 million in purse earnings.(not my take home pay - I wish!)
Maintaining a certain weight to be able to compete in these races taught me discipline. It wasn't always easy. Especially when your exerting so much energy with each race I tended to reach for a quick fix such as chocolate reeses peanut butter cups or some other unhealthy sugary snack. Feeling the ups and downs of the effects of this snack choice, I began to research other healthier options that would give me the same energy rush and tasted great. I turned to fruit! Yummy! This was not only sweet it was refreshing. Riding races in the heat, I would sweat out about 2-3lbs a day of water weight. (this was temporary of course!) So the fruit quenched my thirst as well as my bodies.
My life had taken amazing turn. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named "Victoria Rose" on August 21, 2011. She is the love of my life and everything I do now is for her. I had gained 50lbs during my pregnancy, which totally freaked me out. I was so used to having a fit and trim physique that I was super anxious to get my body back and return to racing. I waited a week after giving birth before hiring a personal trainer which helped me to understand the benefits of healthy eating and getting my body back strong and healthy. This is where I truly learned what it took to clean up my diet. I ended up losing the 50lbs in 10 weeks. I was 39 years old and my body looked better than ever and felt great.
I continued with my healthy eating journey and kept the knowledge I learned thru my own experience and then expanded on it. I am continually researching fun ways to create simple, healthy meals and teaching my daughter along the way.
I finally decided to hang up my tack(as we say in racing) end my riding career on September 28, 2015 and take on a new career as a Fitness and Nutrition Coach! This gave me the freedom to be there for my beautiful daughter and the freedom to create my own schedule! But most of all, I am able to teach and show others how to take the steps to get into a healthy living lifestyle. As well as, getting them into a fitness routine that they will love and make it work for there busy schedule.
Along my journey of learning more about wellness & fitness, I took it to the next level and competed as a Bikini Fitness Model and Figure competitor. Winning my first show in Bikini fitness and finishing second in Figure then going on to finish 2nd internationally in Bikini fitness. This gave me a whole new outlook on the nutrition aspect and how important it was to really learn what my worked for my body.
With my continuing knowledge and expertise I have a passion for helping purpose driven women meet there health & fitness goals plus keeping a positive outlook on their future.
Life is what you make it. So Dream big and keep moving forward.
