Welcome to Built for Battle Fitness!
I am Danielle, a 28- year-old Christian, family nurse practitioner, athlete, and health and wellness advocate. I founded Built for Battle Fitness with my boyfriend, Tom. We both have a passion for helping people reach their optimal level of health through integrative wellness so they can live life to the fullest.
My journey began around 2011 when I first started working out. I was amazed at how one could sculpt his or her own body through diet and exercise, but even more amazing was the ability to alter disease states. I had lived with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) my entire life. It was debilitating at times. When I began to lead a healthier lifestyle, after only a short few months, my symptoms disappeared and NEVER came back. I had also struggled with hormonal imbalances throughout my teenage years that I was able to mitigate through lifestyle changes. I saw the results and the healthy lifestyle became addicting. I wanted to learn all I could about the human body. I left my startup nut butter company (I also have a bachelors in economics), Bare Butter LLC, and decided to go into medicine. I graduated in 2018 with a masters in nursing and passed my boards to become a board-certified family nurse practitioner.
I want to help others understand health and the human body better in order to live to their fullest potential. Knowledge truly is power. I hope to change lives for the better, starting with yours! I hope this blog encourages you to take steps in your own life to live healthier. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
