Shontelle Dubois is an amazing woman and the guest in this episode of DOZ Show. Shontelle did not have a happy childhood. But she constantly suppressed her feelings of sadness even as she lied about the bruises that were frequently on her body. As a young adult, her life began to change for the better; she had graduated and had a beautiful daughter. But suddenly and without any warning, she was involved in a 7-car accident. The recovery process and learning to walk again threw her into depression. She became a binge eater and gained a lot of weight very quickly. At that point, she decided to make changes to her life and lost 95 pounds in five months. She loved her transformation so much that she decided to become a personal trainer and help other women. And then disaster struck; she lost her job and was given an eviction notice. Shontelle began to use the stairwell in her apartment building to train her clients. People mocked her, and called her the stairwell trainer but she kept going, rising early every morning to sweep and mop the stairwell before her clients arrived. Shontelle currently owns a fully equipped gym, all her sessions are sold out, and there are prospective customers on the waiting list! She is a fighter who has kept going against the odds and she shares with us her inspiring journey. Listen and be inspired to never give up!
