My fitness lifestyle started when I picked up long distance running for a couple years after I graduated high school, and I even completed a few half marathons. Running helped me appreciate my body’s abilities and significantly decreased my asthma symptoms by helping increase my respiratory capacity. I was learning what my body could actually do, and I wanted more! Once I started transitioning to weight training I actually had push back from a lot people around me because it wasn’t conventionally “feminine”. I persisted many different and challenging times. Being able to feel strong and capable on a daily basis by your own hand is an incredible feeling, and I wasn’t about to give that up for anything. Once I fully realized how passionate I had become about weight training I decided I wanted to help others find their niche and experience their own successes.
All this to say, don’t let anything get in your way, including yourself. I used to do that. I kept myself from going after what I wanted and reaching my potential because I didn’t want to feel dumb, feel like a beginner, or because of the way people might look at me. With diligence, I’ve gotten away from those habits. I want you to be free from those challenges too! We all start somewhere and you deserve better than mediocracy. I also learned over time that fitness is not a body type, it’s a way of life. Finding a form of physical fitness that you enjoy, keeps you healthy, and that you will stick with is so important. I’ll help you find that passion that aligns with your goals. I’m here for YOU. I want to help you succeed and be your biggest fan.
