my story

How I Got Into Fitness

From about 3rd grade up until my sophomore year of high school, I struggled with being a “chubby” kid. I got into fitness my sophomore year of high school and lost about 30 lbs on my own, BUT I struggled with an eating disorder and a very unhealthy relationship with food.

By my junior year of high school, I had built up enough endurance to join my school’s cross country team. I fell in love with the sport, did very well, and quickly moved up into a coveted varsity team spot. I continued my running career in college with a partial scholarship, and went on to improve as an athlete…until I was plagued with injuries my last year and a half. During that time, my other teammate/best friend (who was also injured!) and I delved more into strength training.

I had dabbled in it in the past with help from my high school coach, so I was very excited to focus in on it again. I found myself being more drawn to the look of physique athletes, and also setting strength-specific goals. My desire to be a skinny cardio bunny slowly drifted away. When I graduated, I moved back home, started working with a personal trainer for some motivation, and began my studies for my NASM certification.

In 2014, I completed my cert, found myself committing to a competition prep (under the guidance of a knowledgeable coach), and got hired at OrangeTheory as a group fitness coach. I also continued to educate myself more on nutrition, and improved my relationship with food through learning how to count my macros. I learned how to not be “afraid” of certain foods, and to embrace a well-balanced, nutritious diet.

I learned that I could still make progress eating some of the foods I love! What freedom!

I guess you could say that I kind of enjoy this whole fitness gig 😉

Speclializations/Coaching Focuses:

  • BOOTY BUILDING/GLUTE-SPECIFIC TRAINING #thethrustisamust
  • Hypertrophy/muscle building
  • Fat loss for women
  • Teaching women how to be confident and dominate in the weight room. I specifically focus on barbell and free weight training. I will teach you how to be proficient (and safe!) in a variety of exercises that use these tools (example: deadlift, bench press, squats, and hip thrusts). Proper form and technique is a must in my book!
  • Educating on the importance of food quality AND quantity (hint: calories DO matter). I do not believe in meal plans, and therefore provide you with optimal calories and macronutrients to fit your lifestyle and goals. I will teach you how to create your own meal plans and put together delicious and nutritious meals that also hit your macronutrient and calorie targets."
