Told you, Tori.

a fearless pursuit of health and wellness



My name is Tori Swain; owner and primary contributor to Told you, Tori blog and social media feeds. I am passionate about promoting health and wellness and making quality of life achievable by providing resources, tools and products that simplify the journey. I obtained my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Public Health & Health Promotion at Coastal Carolina University, and now reside in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina where, professionally, I work for a non- profit that serves the youth population. I also volunteer my time as a Coach for the local Girls on the Run Council. I have lived in Charlotte for less than a year and love exploring my city! I’ve joined an amazing fitness community called SweatNET CLT as a 2020 Ambassador and represent ACTA fitness wear, as well. Among other things, I enjoy improving my personal fitness through diverse physical activity, reading self development books, and time spent in good company (particularly over coffee).

My hope is that through this blog I can present to you practical wellness tips and resources that give you the confidence to take your health into your own hands to create a better quality of life for yourself.  I also hope to share with you pieces of my life to encourage you to be BOLD and FEARLESS when making decisions that positively impact your physical, emotional, spiritual, and social health!  I love creativity and exploration, so this should be FUN!

YOU, yes, YOU!  Start telling yourself  over and over again that no matter your circumstance, you ARE going to accomplish anything set before you and that it is OKAY to step outside of your comfort zone to do so!  Pretty soon you’ll be saying to yourself, “Told you, __{Insert your name here}__.” You’ve got this.

Be Well,


Joshua 1:9
