She’s taken that love a step further and partnered with Jasmine Tookes to create a place to share workout tips, food advice, and much more.

This started because they wanted to show off some routines and it expanded from there. Today, the venture has an Instagram that spreads their message of being healthy and feeling great. And looking good, too, of course.
