Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I enjoy seeing my client progress and honestly work hard. This proves to me that they are willing to sacrifice a little piece of themselves every workout. I love working hard on a project and seeing results! I endure every triumph with my client and help to push them through every struggle!
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. Not everyone is cut out to be a personal trainer. Just you have a degree in the field or that person likes to work out doesn't mean that they are cut out to train another person. You have to have a passion for this, you have to work just as hard if not harder than the client to help them achieve their goals.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. My father was recently diagnosed with type II diabetes. We knew that this ran in his side of the family, but he never expected it to happen to him. I was ready to take on the challenge! I knew I had to remove myself from being his daughter and truly push my father to achieve a higher level of wellness. I did alot of research on what was an appropriate way to motivate and educate people with this disease. There were days that I let him choose his workouts and there were days when I had to be his personal drill sergeant! Long story short, after a few months he started to moved down to a healthy weight and was eventually weaned off of his shots. I was very proud of him, not just as one of my clients, but as my father!
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. Yes, I am currently in Nursing School so therefore I am able to incorporate what I have learned from exercise science with the new information I am learning about nursing.
