#TuesdayTakeover featuring Shekema Sims



YYW: Hello and thanks so much for joining us this month!! Please, tell us – Who are you?

Shekema: I am Shekema Sims, Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. But, my favorite title is mom – I have 3 children Mya, Tylea and Angel. I am a women of faith. I fell in love with physical fitness over 10 years ago.

YYW: Where are you from?

Shekema: I’m from Sicklerville NJ, but I have lived in Cheslihurst before moving to Sicklerville.

YYW: What was the worst time in your life… ie: biggest challenge/obstacle you’ve overcome?

Shekema: The worst time in my life was 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. One of my biggest challenges was figuring out what would life be life after the diagnosis.

YYW: Oh, wow – how scary! We hope you’re doing well now. You’re a Warrior!

YYW: What is your profession or passion?

Shekema: My profession / passion is Personal Training and Nutrition.

YYW: How do you help people or how would you like to help people?

Shekema: I help people achieve their personal fitness goals through physical fitness and proper nutrition.

YYW: How can we help support you?

Shekema: You could help support me by sharing my social media platforms or giving referrals.

YYW: What are you working on or what kind of work do you do that would interest someone enough to hire you for your services offered?

Shekema: Anyone who is looking for a honest upfront type of P.T. and Nutritionist. I like to teach my clients because it’s not my goal to have them forever. I want to teach them

the skills they need to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle without me.

YYW: How do you want to inspire?

Shekema: I want to inspire people to be the best version of themselves not based on who others say they are.

YYW:  What is the biggest message you can offer a person?

Shekema: If you don’t take care of yourself who will? Too often we get caught up in taking care of others we forget about ourselves. What good are you if you’re giving a tired, over worked, low self esteem, version of yourself? Taking time for yourself is the most important thing you can do. You need time to reset.

YYW: How did we meet or get to know each other?

Shekema: We meet on Social Media through Butiyoga.

YYW: What about YogiYogaWear?

Shekema: YogiYogaWear is beautiful and the material is amazing. I love the colors and designs.

YYW: Thanks so much, Shekema, for joining us this month. We’ll be sure to keep on supporting you on your amazing journey!
