Now healthy, happy and confident, Natasha says that she’s intent on doing everything in her power to stay that way and that she owes all her success to jiu-jitsu!


Her best advice to someone looking to make a similar change – “Find an exercise that is not boring and that challenges your body and mind. Jiu-jitsu is one of them. There is always something to learn and you are getting fit while you are having fun. Surround yourself with great people who have the same goals as you. Believe in yourself and stay strong. It’s your life, so start living it.”

The best part of Natasha’s life change: seeing her boys proud of their mom for the things she’s accomplished and helping others meet their goals in life.




  1. Natasha, what an amazing turn around. I enjoyed reading your story and am proud of you and your family for taking a giant leap towards a healthier lifestyle. As I am sure you know, BJJ is a family within itself and we are all rooting for you to keep up the great work!
