Tori, is a US Army Veteran & LEO wife, mom of 2, & online Fitness Entrepreneur. She is the Owner & Head Nutritionist & Fitness Coach, as well as Cosmetologist of IFOX FITNESS. She has founded The Foxy Ladies Lifestyle Academy, for military & first responder wives & Team IFOX, a bodybuilding team of female competitors.
She is from Maryland and graduated from High School in 2012 with her Cosmetology License, going straight into the workforce and wasting NO time! She is not a procrastinator, and is stubbornly dedicated within her work ethic and goals. She worked in her local area's award winning salons, traveled to NYC for advanced certifications in hair artistry and then later married her dream Man young when he was stationed near her while serving in the U.S. Army. This took her small town life for a spin that would sculpt and evolve her true passion!
With a background of many talents to include playing ice hockey, competing in horse back riding, fishing, crabbing, hunting, hiking, drawing & tattooing, video editing, having an eye for home decor, having the heart to help and listen to others, playing guitar and flute, partaking in choir, it was only natural for her to pick up something to combine a lot of talents into one ultimate accomplishment, weight lifting and bodybuilding in NPC of course.
Upon the military lifestyle, she and her husband started a family and went through many inevitble growing pains within the service and sacrifice. After having 2 back to back pregnancies, she quickly was inspired by her darkest moment of life coming to realize she had not been present as she would want to be within her family life and also for her health.

. Upon having that AHA moment, where the struggles and the cascading events that took her here...she realized that her purpose was meant to be much bigger than being behind the chair trying to help women and utilize her skills. She often felt a void and a limit until she understood that finding herself again would be the key to unlocking true potential in her craft, what is now her life's work!
While raising 2 babies in diapers she got to work with being granted a Military Spouse Scholarship, while living a low income life on WIC (women infants and children food assistance program)...PURE DETERMINATION FOR SUCCESS. She believes we are never defined by our circumstances, but rather, we define our future! When there is a will, there is a way! After grinding in a new path and transforming her own health, mindset, body, and restrengthening herself as a mom and wife, she completed key credentials that you see listed and they are growing as she never stops adding to her expertise. She Started IFOX FITNESS, and rewarded herself by competing for the first time back in 2017. It was up from there!
"After my first coach retired her services and I was repeatedly overlooked by other teams, I realized there was a common issue for women like me in the sport and I decided I should become the solution and not let it stop me from creating the success and enjoyment I wanted to experience and be a part of within this sport. Today I am honored to coach many women across the United States who share the same service based family lifestyle and we lead such an amazing movement of both lifestyle transformation and women's competition prep. I want our ladies to know we have their six and we will provide an elite service that they deserve from pre to post prep!"
