Biography

I grew up playing sports.  I played competitively in high school and had several college scholarship offers until I suffered an injury that made me decide to stop and take care of my body.  I could no longer play competitively but certainly didn’t want to give up doing the things I loved to do and wanted to remain active.  This also inspired me to help others.  I have been in the Fitness Industry since I was 21 years old (and since I’m only 29 now, it’s only been a few years – joking!) I’ve been personal training for 28 years and I have loved every minute.  My clients inspire me every single day.  Believe me, even as a trainer, there are days when I don’t feel like working out or eating right.

As I watch my clients reach their goals and make improvements in their every day lives,  it motivates me to be better and strive harder in my own workouts.  This profession is a perfect fit for me because I get to do what I love every single day – talk about fitness and interact with people.  I feel like I can relate to most of my clients. I’ve been overweight, I’ve suffered injuries, I’ve been unmotivated, I’ve been in pain, I suffer from an autoimmune disease and I’ve struggled with my nutrition. All of this has prepared me to help the people I meet – whether they are clients,  family members, friends, etc.  I love people and I love helping and motivating them. I am beyond grateful to live the life I live and share my knowledge with others.

WHAT MAKES ME BLUSH:

It’s really hard to embarrass me.  I spend most days laughing at myself anyway.  I don’t handle compliments well though.  It makes me uncomfortable (and I blush a little) when people pay me compliments.

MY BEST FITNESS TIP:

Set SMALL fitness goals.  It’s all about baby steps.  Don’t try to change/improve everything all at once – you will get discouraged and set yourself up for failure.  “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
