As an A.C.E Certified Trainer I make it my mission to teach my client’s how to love it too. I am an ex-Art Teacher and I have been working out for over 10 years. I can barely remember when fitness was not a part of my life. I am happier, healthier, and more confident because of it.
I spent a lot of time on myself, figuring out what styles of training I liked, what methods worked for me, developing fun workouts, and adjusting my eating habits. I did all this before I decided to pursue my Trainer’s Certificate. I believe it is one of the aspects that has allowed me to excel in my field.
As a woman, I know how easy it is to be overly frustrated and even obsessed with how our bodies look. Unfortunately, I saw a lot of this self loathing, body-hatred in my female Middle School students, during my time as a teacher. No girl or woman should feel this way about her body. I know it is easier said than done. I believe Fitness, Working Out, and being Healthy should be looked at as a rewarding challenge for our bodies, instead of punishment. When I was able to admire my strength, focus on how many more reps I was doing each week, or how much weight I was able to increase by, that is when I really started to see results, be happy, and appreciate my body for all it’s capable of.
I want to teach women how to appreciate and look at their bodies in a positive light and not purely for size, weight, or outward appearance. I have big goals and dreams to develop a program for Middle and High School girls that teaches them these values through fitness and discussions. I love what I do and am a dedicated Personal Trainer. It has allowed me to interact with women daily, teach them how to appreciate their strength, and move in the direction of my dream. Who know’s how many other women my client’s will go on to effect, encourage, and help?! It is the absolute best kind chain reaction.
Will you also like the way your body looks? Yes of course!
My training style incorporates various techniques including Resistance Training, Calisthenics, and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I don’t like sticking to one style because it’s important to keep the body guessing, always challenged, and of course for it to be fun. I don’t believe in quick fixes. I believe that it is important to teach my clients how to adopt a healthy, realistic lifestyle that they will love and that will become second nature. Working out shouldn’t feel like a chore! Let’s have some fun!
