As a fitness expert and entrepreneur, she has just launched another wellness focussed venture, her Transform From Within program. After a decade in the industry, De La Rue noticed a gap she wanted to fill.

When discussing with De La Rue who the typical student is for this transformative program she rhymed off anything you could imagine from the working mom, the stay at home mom, the woman in recovery, the newly employed, those who don’t know how or when to start a new wellness journey. “This program is for all kinds of women that find themselves stuck in a rut, where they've tried everything, and they just can't move forward, like they've tried to succeed and they're struggling.” said De La Rue.
When looking to start a transformative journey, the first step is always the hardest. When discussing with De La Rue which week in the program is most pivotal she mentioned that each week builds off the next, but of course, the first week is where the work begins. “Maybe even the first week, because even the first exercise the first week is about getting honest with the present,” explained De La Rue, “Because that's when you're having to really take a good hard look at yourself.”
While taking a hard look at yourself is always a difficult step, it is the first step towards total transformation. Mindset is important and committing to bettering yourself and your mindset is even more.
