How do you make lives better as a personal trainer?
My mission is to help people become stronger. Everyone is in a different time in their fitness journey and I believe in meeting people where they are in that journey and challenging them to be better than imagined.
How did you get involved in the fitness industry?
I have struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. I always thought that I had to be a certain size to try new activities and to workout in front of others at the gym. I was always a fitness lover but was only focused on running and cardio based activities until a few years ago. Running an hour a day, six days a week never resulted in the lean, toned body that I always dreamed of. A few years ago, I started lifting weights and focused on strength for the first time while still remaining fearful of becoming big and bulky. This changed my life! I finally got the toned, lean body I desired and became inspired to help others achieve change in their lives too.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I hang out with my husband and kids in my spare time. I lived in orange county for 10 years so we LOVE spending all day at the beach!
A big misconception about fitness and weight loss?
You can get the “toned look” without building any muscle.
Do you prefer training alone, with a partner or in a group?
I love working out with a partner or in a group because I believe workouts MUST be fun or I don’t want to do them. There is nothing better than hanging out with your friends and pushing each other to be better. It’s a plan for success.
Advice for those beginning their fitness journey?
Be patient with yourself. Weight isn’t gained or lost overnight. For real results that stick you must be willing to commit to the journey!
