In 2003, the busy mom of five, no longer a dancing ballerina, Cecelia suffered from severe back pain including whiplash, cervical injuries, herniated discs, L4/L5 lower lumbar damage and sciatica.
Returning to fitness in 2007 she trained herself with personal passion and knowledge of Ballet and Pilates, creating the Enlighten Tri-fecta.
In less than one year she lost 40 pounds and continues to be healthy and fit over a decade later. She no longer suffers from back pain and has taught at many health, fitness and dance studios as featured guest instructor.
Not wishing to keep this uniquely effective method to herself, she helps others with with rapid results. Males and females of all ages who consistently train with her, including those with limitations which doctors have said were uncureable, are astounded as they recover and reach goals.
