Taylor Staus is a fitness enthusiast living, running, biking, and swimming in Chicago, IL. Her fitness journey began before moving to Chicago in June 2013. She had gained well over the “Freshman 15” while in college and the summer before moving, she decided to make a change. She found Tone It Up and lost pounds and inches but gained so much more in terms of confidence, happiness, endurance, and strength. With her new body and mindset, she’s realized she’s capable of anything she sets her mind to. She’s completed 5Ks, 8Ks, 10Ks, 15Ks, half marathons, GoRucks, Tough Mudders, a triathlon, and more! She has a race bucket list and plans to run one race per month with the Disney Half Marathon, Nike Women’s Half, and Chicago Marathon. Follow her journey on Instagram @progressxnotxperfection.
