Victoria Ainis says that, once upon a time, she thought of her dream body as unattainable. She tried various fitness regimens and diets, but she fought with her basic need to eat and her desire to spend time with friends rather than at the gym. She began to think that perhaps the challenge was not to to starve oneself or spend hours working out, but rather to eat the right things and do the right exercises. After some research, she began to see results, and her desire to share those results with others led her to found Ultimate Fitness Breakthrough.
Today, she combines nutritional programs with fun, fast work outs. She changes up the physical challenges regularly, making use of the great outdoors and her obstacle course over more boring things such as treadmills, weightlifting, or re-shelving heavy library books.
