The Start of Our Journey with Tourette’s Syndrome

  My name is Danielle Natoni, aka Fit and Funky, and my daughter has Tourette’s Syndrome. Bianca is 11 years old and honestly is one of the coolest kids you will ever meet. She is funny, quirky, smart, athletic, artistic, and above all else, kind. She loves the Walking Dead, could be on a child’s version of the show Hoarders, and is a modern day Punky Brewster. She is the absolute light of my life and the world is a better place because she’s in it. About 4 years ago, I noticed her rapidly blinking her eyes. I didn’t think much of it. She said she could see, and her vision tested fine at school. After the eye blinking started …

The Perfect Post-Workout Messy Bun

The Perfect Post-Workout Messy Bun I know you may find this shocking, but I do not wash my hair everyday! (I am totally kidding about the “shocking” part, as if you follow me on social media then you are well aware of this already). I realize that we all have different hair types, however, I wanted to share with you my solution to day two hair AFTER an INSANE workout and heavy duty sweat session. A lot of you have asked me to share how I do my hair in a post-workout messy bun, so I created a quick video for you to see how it literally takes me no time at all and is still super cute and fashionable. …

Why I work out barefoot

Every day when I post a workout video on Facebook or Instagram, someone always asks me why I am not wearing shoes. They ask things like: don’t your feet hurt, or isn’t that bad for your knees, or what about jumping? I absolutely love working out without shoes on for two simple reasons and it is always my preferred method of training when I am at home. We have a no shoes on in the house rule. So it goes against all our principles to put our shoes on inside the house, even to do a workout. I wear shoes to work out outside of my home to protect my feet against outside influences like dirt, debris, and germs. It …
