USAW (USA Weightlifting) Level 1 Coach
From a young child I remember my mom always making sure that we had our veggies and that our meals were balanced. I took this knowledge with me throughout life, but as I grew up and went to high school and then college, I struggled with my weight, emotional eating and over-eating. I LOVE food! And I had a very hard time maintaining my weight. I went from being an athlete to gaining the Freshman 25 and my self love was at an all time low. I was partying 4-5 times a week, making poor health choices and wasn't moving my body at all. I had lost myself.
When I was 20 I moved in with my sister, who has always been a huge inspiration to me. She was working as a personal trainer and was the epitome of health in my eyes. She helped me get back into working out and being conscious of what I was putting in my body. This started my journey to a healthier life.
Then in 2008, I met my husband and we got married 8 months later. He's so athletic and was in crazy shape. He inspired me to get in better shape and really pushed me to challenge my body. I lost 15lbs the first year we were married and really started to love working out again.
So, as you can see this has been a long journey for me. I've worked very hard over the last 10 years to hone in on how to live a healthy life, without deprivation and yo-yo dieting. I've worked with mindset coaches and nutrition coaches to not only get a healthy body, but a healthy mind. They go hand in hand! I know what it is like to feel out of control in your own body.
My goal is to help you learn how to implement healthy habits into your life that are sustainable and simple. I coach people on getting their mind right, while getting their bodies healthy.
A coach by nature, one of my passions is education, so I'd love to chat with you more about fitness, nutrition, mindset and how I can help you with your health. My inbox is always open!
