I’ve been a competitive person since elementary school, but not necessarily in sports. Physical performance has always been my passion and main focus in life. I was the girl in high school that students would come to for questions about exercise or ask to join me in an after school workout.
I learned at a very young age that nothing makes me happier than helping someone achieve a goal. I empathize with “failure” as I have stopped and started exercise and became very familiar with the notorious emotional eating behaviors, fluctuating in weight throughout the past 8 years (roughly 100lbs). I know what it’s like to feel you’ll never get back to where you used to be, but I pushed through the negativity and got the job done. Now that I’m educated in the training business, I’m aware of what it takes to be successful and stay consistent. I never gave up on myself, and I love guiding others in experiencing that feeling of success as well.
Having played College Softball in the past and taken many group classes at Mi5 Fitness, I understand the importance of having a teammate push you beyond what you thought you were capable of. Although sports won’t always be available for us at every age, our bodies will forever crave physical exercise and the right foods that fuel us throughout the day.
Having my National Academy of Sports Medicine certification, I am knowledgeable in functional movement/biomechanics, and have a background in various stabilization, strength, and power training techniques. With my certification in Holistic Nutrition, I recognize how foods are connected to us mentally, physically, emotionally, and how to separate the good from the bad. I believe that everyone’s got room for improvement. My job is to help those to put in the effort, so once they start noticing the changes the process becomes fun!
