  1. What is your favorite part about being a personal trainer?

Fitness has a huge impact on one’s health.

Despite having a background in strength and conditioning as a collegiate athlete, as a woman, I was intimated going to the gym by myself to lift heavy weights. I mostly stuck to cardio equipment, dumbbells, and group exercise classes. While this is great, I realized I would not achieve my fitness goals without a personalized strength program.

Start slow and build a solid movement-quality foundation first.

Just know that if you’re dedicated and consistent, you will see the results you are looking for so have faith and trust the process.

  1. What personal advice do you give someone who is looking to get to a healthier point in their life in general?

It’s never too late to start! Begin with small changes first. That could be eating a healthy breakfast or going to the gym once a week for 30 minutes. Even small changes can make a significant impact in how you look and feel.
