My fitness journey started at Curves, in my mid teens, and became a habit that has stuck with me my entire life. It became an outlet during “that” stage in my life when I wanted to be comfortable with my body and also learn more about myself; I wanted to know more about my strengths and weakness, and just how determined I could be. Over the years, it has become so much more than that… it gave me confidence, helped me through difficult times, and now it has made me so in-tune with my body that I can truly say that I love the skin I’m in.
In 2014, shortly after having my first child, I started managing a Yoga Studio, where I became a Certified Yoga Teacher and PiYo Instructor and when I realized my love for helping/leading others began. For the past 6 years, I have been teaching Yoga and PiYo, (off and on between having another child and being a full-time mom) and became a Personal Trainer just over a year ago. Every day I am blessed to meet new people who are on, or beginning, their personal journey of self-transformation; I get to help them set goals; determine/realize & acknowledge what their hindrances and weaknesses are, and am able to provide them with the knowledge and motivation they need in-order to, not only, overcome past obstacles, but crush them 😉…I get to know them, as they learn more about themselves, and, without a doubt, that is my passion.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, that is true, and when it comes to life & fitness, variety is key, which is what I specialize in, and work on, with my clients; from Functional Fitness, Circuit Training, HIIT, Yoga, PiYo, Weight Training, and Natural Health Solutions/Suggestions, I do it all! And love every minute of it.
The self transformation journey isn’t always enjoyable; it’s not always easy, in fact, sometimes it’s really hard; at times you may feel defeated and like you want to give up, but I can tell you this: Do NOT give up! It gets easier! You will be amazed at your strength; you will be in awe of your determination level, and you will learn to love yourself truly, madly, deeply. Inside and out.
