- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to schedule a consultation and meet with all new clients at the Studio. I give them a tour and show them all that we have to offer, and then we sit down and discuss their goals and find a program and plan that works best for them.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Nutrition Specialist.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
In 2015 I hit the unhealthiest point in my life, mentally and physically. I was dealing with a major life change, a new career, and new place to call home. I was highly active in sports during high school but found myself gaining weight throughout college and starting my career. I remember waking up one day and telling myself I had to make a change. I was tired of not feeling well, and not liking the person I saw in the mirror. I remember stepping into the gym for the first time since school and being so terrified that I left and went back home. I wondered, are people staring at me? Laughing? How will I know what machines to use, and am I doing them wrong? Fast forward a few weeks later, I decided to try this new thing at the time called CrossFit. I thought I would feel more comfortable in a group setting with a coach instructing me on what to do. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming that I ended up joining and fell in love with being active again. I was a CrossFit athlete for almost two years before I switched to Bodybuilding and competed in my first OCB Bikini show in 2017. Since my show, I completed my training to become a Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist, and Group Instructor through ACE. I am so thankful for the path that led me to be a trainer because it allows me to be relatable to my clients. I understand the daily struggles, the setbacks, the feeling that you will never lose the weight or be happy in your own skin again. I hope to be an inspiration and voice of hope to every single person I work with, and to be the role model that I needed when I started my fitness journey.
