Meet our Superhero of the Month for August: Georgia Nze!
Exercise is known as a keystone habit, a positive habit that starts a ripple effect of other positive changes in different parts of someone’s life. Training to create your most empowered, vibrant life is what we do here at Mo-Mentum Fitness. This is why we’ve chosen Georgia Nze as our Superhero Of The Month for August.
Georgia walked through our big red doors at Mo-Mentum Fitness looking to build her muscles and learn to eat to fuel her body for life. Since the first day she joined Mo-Mentum Fitenss she started strength training and hasn’t looked back.
What’s even more cool, (that we found out by accident) is that Georgia had a long time fear of dogs. If you know Mo-Mentum Fitness, you know Makoa, our little Boston Terrier, and our official door greeter. Makoa takes her job seriously and makes sure to say, “Hello!” to every who enters Mo-Mentum Fitness.
We found out kind of my accident that Georgia was afraid of dogs, because by the time she shared this with us, she wasn’t so afraid of dogs anymore!
Georgia mentioned, during a casual conversation while weightlifting, that she had been afraid of dogs. This sentence stopped us in our tracks. “What?” We asked. When were you afraid of dogs?” Her response was, “Until a few months ago!”
It turned out that when Koa greeted Georgia each day when she started training, Georgia decided to confront her fear of dogs and say, “Hello!” back to Koa with a little rub on the head. When we accomplish hard things, like building muscle or showing up for workouts we don’t “feel” like doing….other “hard” things feel (and become) more doable. Exercise seriously creates a beautiful ripple effect in our lives.
We’ve all been so inspired getting to watch Georgia reach her goals! She’s consistently built beautiful, strong, functional muscles and strength. She’s eating whole foods and enough to help her body build and maintain her muscle, her energy, and her overall vibrant health. Georgia is glowing.
One more story that highlights the superhero Georgia is through and through. I just found out that Georgia is taking swimming lessons. Many adults don’t know how to swim. And as we get older, learning to swim can feel like a daunting hurdle to overcome. Georgia has done it! She’s taking swimming lessons! Exercise is a keystone habit!
If you are on the fence about starting an exercise program, take the leap! When you face your fears that you could fail at making the changes you’ve been dreaming of, or that you won’t be able to keep up, or that you’re not in the shape you want to be in to enter a fitness studio or gym, and you do it anyway…. and then you begin to feel and see the changes, it changes your perception of what is possible in your life.
Georgia! Thank you for inspiring Mo-Tribe and Team Mo and the people around you! We love that you are part of Mo-Tribe! You are an absolute bright light in this world. You make Mo-Mentum and this world a better place!
Thank you for being our Mo-Mentum Fitness Superhero for August!

A few words from our Superhero herself…
Describe what your life (and your health) was like before fitness.
Before joining Mo-Mentum I hadn’t worked out consistently for years, and I had a bad habit of not eating enough.
Was there ever a low point or an experience that made your priorities change?
No, I just finally got to a point where I wanted to commit to fitness being a part of my weekly routine.
How did fitness come into your life (or back into your life)?
Once I moved back to California last year, I knew I wanted to make fitness a priority so I searched for a gym around me that would help me get into weight lighting in a comfortable environment.
Please talk more about the actual changes in your life?
I’ve gained muscle weight, increased strength, and I’m seeing my body physically change, which were all goals of mine when I first got started, and things I want to continue building upon.
Why do you make fitness a priority in your life?
Prioritizing fitness in my life has helped me develop better overall habits like eating more and actually paying attention to what I’m eating. Although I’m still working on eating healthier, I’ve definitely started incorporating more vegetables in my diet more than I ever would have before. Working out also helps me be more productive throughout the day. In the past, the weekend would be days that I would sleep in and not do much. Now most Saturday mornings, I wake up early to get to the gym, which gives me energy and motivation to get other things done.
I want to maintain good health long-term, and want my body to look and feel a certain way, and I know I have to prioritize my fitness for those things to happen.
These days, what makes truly happy and feel at peace?
Going to church, spending time with family and friends, working out, and looking out at the ocean.
How do you feel compared to 1 year ago?
STRONGER, mentally and physically.
What is your favorite thing about Mo-Mentum Fitness?
The people, I appreciate having people that encourage me and keep me accountable for being consistent with my workouts.
What would you say to the person who knows they need to start exercising but is afraid to start?
Find a gym where you feel comfortable and just get started.
