I know what you’re thinking…” Yay another ‘basic bitch‘ writing a blog. How original!.” Well sometimes I’m basic. Most of the time I’m a bitch, but I have been sitting and sipping on the bFF idea for over 6 years now. I finally decided to stop being a pussy and get to work. I just always wanted to project the perfect representation of my vision, but in reality I am not perfect. My brand probably isn’t either, but I need to do what I set out to do. So I, Melissa Avery Granatire, created “be Fierce and Fit” with the pure objective to educate and inspire. I am obsessed with health and fitness, as well as being a trendy boss ass bitch. There won’t be a specific audience I will cater to. Which is why I love this platform. Some days I am so extra that I look in the mirror and channel my King Kylie… minus the rear end. Other days I look homeless minus my liter of Fiji water. I would say I am the “do the least amount possible to look super put together”. “bFF” will be minimal meets glamourous. Picture the clean, chic design of “Prada Marfa”, but I threw a ton of glitter and shit on it to jazz it up. I want to provide women with the tools to live their best lives; to help you take your look and your life to the next level. So you can sit there sipping your green juice, skin glowing, in a ripped up band tee, after hot yoga, feeling like Beyonce. All of that with only $17.38 to your name (aka me). In all honesty, “bFF” should give you the information to nourish your body properly, workout to look and feel your best, trends that work for you, proper ways to treat and preserve your skin and youth, and ultimately help you find yourself. Sorta like how I find myself on the Diesel Nightclub dance floor on a Friday night at about 1:07am.
Who is this bitch aka me?
I’m a 5 foot psycho who is made up of Fiji Water, Champagne, collagen filled green juice, and the fiery depths of hell. Jk, kinda. I went to Penn State. Where I drank the koolaid, and graduated with the number one Kinesiology degree in the country (and a minor in Entrepreneurship). Currently, I am a Hockey and Figure Skating coach, and working in the health and fitness industry. My plan has been to make “be Fierce and Fit” and put all my blood, sweat, tears, and time into making it successful. I don’t really follow trends (unless I’m loving it). I do what works for me and what I love, and for some reason people have been attracted to that trait. I love myself and the people in my life, and that has helped me develop into the woman I am today. So that is exactly what I want to bring to “be Fierce and Fit”; something to help everyone become the women they want to be.
You can expect the guidance needed to educate yourself on proper nutrition and wellness, fitness videos and recipes, current obsessions, and ways to really improve your aura. I have been working on a fitness guide and nutrition plan for quite some time. Everything I bring to my brand will be what I know works, and is proven through years of research. Because of my Kinesiology background I feel I can prescribe and suggest workouts for people safely and effectively. I have been obsessed with this lifestyle since before I can remember so I want to share that with anyone who cares to listen. I am also scared shitless of not taking care of my body, and becoming a failing old body in a wheelchair at 60. I want to extend my life and live the best life possible.
So let’s rock this bitch and jump right in. Get to know me and I hope to get to know all of you and get Fierce and Fit together!
