Thank you for visiting my website and please allow me to answer the questions that I get asked most.
“How did I get into fitness?”
Well it all started when I was young; or rather you could say it was my body shape when I was young. I was overweight, unhappy, and my own siblings called my sumo. (They said it with love and laughter) As I got a little older I lost some of the weight but not all of it, and it wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I discovered cycling and began to lose weight and get fit. At the same time I started racing bikes and had realized that I had found my calling. I loved to train and I loved to push my mind and body to the limits. I was winning almost every race I entered and quickly moved through the ranks. Eventually people started asking me for tips and for me to train them, and they offered to pay me. I decided that if I was going to do it that I needed to get some type of certification. So I became certified to be a cycling coach. The certification was OK, but I felt like it majorly lacked in any knowledge to help someone get better physically or even mentally in cycling. I knew how physically demanding the sport was and just how much time I invested with weight training just to stay safe, powerful, and winning. I had invested the time to my training but really just did my own thing not knowing exactly what I was doing. I was picking things up and putting them down...lol, workout humor. I read magazines and articles to help teach me a few things. The more I read the more I realized how much I didn’t know. This started my thirst for knowledge that I just couldn’t quench. I decided that I wanted to get my personal trainer certification. This would help my training clientele and even more so it would let people know that I was serious about what I was doing. This certification only touched the surface of the fitness world for me and it showed me that I was exactly where I was meant to be with helping others achieve their own fitness goals. At the same time that all of this was going on I had decided to leave my job and found a job at a Fitness studio. This was a unique experience because I was now working with people who were complete strangers and I had to quickly design a program for them. This wasn’t the athletic population that I was use to but instead it was children, elderly, special needs, and everything in-between. I LOVED it, I was learning a ton both about how to train and write programs, but also about myself. After several years there I realized that I wanted more for myself and I wanted to offer people a better and more personal experience, so I opened my own studio. I love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else. Step by step and day by day, I’m with my clients all the way in their fitness journey.
