I have been personal training and teaching group exercise for almost 10 years and have been on a fitness journey my entire life. I have trained teens, prenatal and postnatal mothers, busy mothers & fathers, full time employees and stay at home moms, as well as seniors. I want to help my clients reach their goals. But even more, I want them to be healthy not just physically, but mentally and spiritually.
I am the graduating class of ‘01 from Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Kinesiology. My goal was to become a physical therapist, but being a mother took precedence. I have 4 children: 18yrs, 10yrs, and 7yrs and my 4yr old nephew whom I raise and love as my own. I am also a military wife. I understand and empathize the demands of life and encourage my clients to stay on course to be healthy no matter what life throws in their path.
My fitness journey began when I was a chunky kid. After being called names and noticing my weight in 6th grade was heavier than the other girls, my goal was to be skinny. Knowing that exercise was important I began playing sports to be active. I also learned how to make healthy choices when it came to eating. In my adult years, I have learned even more after my first son was born with a dairy allergy. This forced me to become even more aware of food, calories (both quantity and quality), food allergies, and more.
My desire to help people is evident in how much time & effort I give my clients, not just during training sessions but by the information I share on social media as well as personal contact made throughout the week to keep my clients accountable and motivated.
I am always excited to help others in their fitness and health journeys and I strive to teach others to be the healthiest and happiest all around person they can be.
As a group exercise instructor, I make a very purposeful and conscious effort to make sure that everyone in my classes are able to participate during the workout at all times. Even if a class is high intensity. Each individual has their own level of what is intense based on their age, size, weight, circumstance (injured, pregnant, etc.) and fitness level. All exercises have varying degrees of difficulty and intensity. I make sure to give all of those levels whenever possible.
My goal for every class participant is to walk away feeling successful or at least motivated to keep coming.
