The September issue of Hood magazine is on store shelves and the Covergirl is a woman who took back her life when Hood picked her for the "Mommy Gets Fit Challenge"  last year. 

Seven months later,  Charie Jackson is now 50 pounds lighter, healthier and more energized and looks phenomenal. 

 Her trainer and lifestyle coach from Lemke Fitness and Training in Hartford James Lemke and Terra Koupal said the first thing they did was convince Charie that she could do it. She could make changes and she did.

 James got her moving right away with weights and cardio. Terra cleaned out her apartment that she shares with her husband and little girl. Terra replaced the highly processed food with fruit and vegetables. 

Steff Liston-Holtrop, President and Publisher of Hood says she, Terra and James wanted to do something to give back to hard working moms and this was what they came up with. Look for the 2nd "Mommy Gets Fit Challenge" application process in coming issues.
