PhysEQFit and FinanciallyFiTLife were a dream that came true for two sisters who not only share a passion for overall wellness but also strive to live by four key principles: make a difference; be an inspiration; be the change you want to see and leave a legacy behind. They believe that their different fields of expertise and qualifications are a unique combination of skills that complement each other in providing a holistic solution.
