Strong By Design Podcast

Dec 5, 2018

On this episode of Strong By Design Coach Chris is joined by his friend and occasional podcast host, Tonya Fines. On today’s show we get personal with Tonya as she shares her journey from being diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and Spina Bifida. She opens up about her low points and how she was able to muster up the strength and develop a fighter mentality to take control over her health. You don’t want to miss this triumphant story!

"I ended up just going full steam like 210 mph and felt like I hit a cement wall...I woke up one morning and I couldn’t do anything..."

-Tonya Fines
