Yooo what's good my people, welcome to Melanated Fit. My name is Jamie Hines, I'm a fitness enthusiasts and believe health is wealth. Wow, it's real!! I'm absolutely thrilled to welcome you to my blog and journey fitness. Whether you're a seasoned gym-goer or just starting your wellness journey, this blog is designed to be your go-to destination for inspiration, fun, craziness and a whole lot of motivation.

Before we dive headfirst into this exclusive adventure together, allow me to introduce myself. I'm an everyday woman that hates working out but LOVE the way I look in the mirror! I believe in the transformation power of leading a healthy and active lifestyle, that I call "Health is Wealth". Together with my people and trainer (BodyRocc) I hope to create a space where individuals like you can find the resources and a little comedy to a healthy life.

Fitness is not just about the numbers on a scale or the size of your stomach, it's a holistic approach to nourishing your body, mind, and spirit. A quick story, back in 2018 a good friend of my had a Halloween party. I had this great idea to be a “NYC man”, at the time the trend on social media was the starter pack. So I got my hat, Tims (Timberland boots), and a banging Run DMC shirt, thinking nobody is going to recognize me at all. Whelp I was correct, I didn’t even recognize myself at all. I looked in the mirror and I named the person looking back at me Domonic, my overweight twin! I was mortified, hurt, ashamed, but I had vowed to get this weight off of me. Little did I know the daily challenges awaiting ahead.

Here, I'll focus on helping you build a sustainable and fulfilling fitness goals that can be attained anywhere. My aim is to empower you to embrace a well-rounded lifestyle that includes exercise, nutrition, self-care, and mental wellness. I’m not just here to be your fitness guru, I want to be your “real friend” on this adventure. I envision this to be a safe haven where you can connect with like-minded individuals. Hell I had an overweight twin male that I had to fight against, LOL. Seriously, I hope people ask questions, seek guidance, or simply share your victories and failures.

Remember, progress is not always linear. The weight didn’t get there overnight so it will not go away overnight!

So, lace up your kicks, grab your water bottle, and get ready to embark on an extraordinary journey of self-discovery and transformation. I believe in you!

Be Great my friends!

Peace and hair grease!
