As a trainer who loves her job and is obsessed with all things fitness and exercise related, it wasn’t always like that for me.
Growing up overweight and being bullied for most of middle school life, I felt alone and depressed. One day I decided I didn’t want to live like that anymore, so like any young teen I went on a diet and I dropped a bunch of weight but had no muscle on me. I decided I was content and continued through life until I turned 18 and joined a gym. I had no idea what to do, or where to start. So like any person who is new to something, I went to something I knew - how to use the treadmill! I started on that and I started running. I became obsessed with it. I loved the feeling during and after, so I decided why not join a running clinic. I started with a 5km then a 10km then before I knew it I was training for a half marathon and then another half marathon!
After doing that for a while, I wanted to explore a different area of fitness, which is where I found weightlifting! I loved it instantly and got addicted to a consistent routine and a healthy eating schedule and in no time my muscles were growing and I was as fit as I’ve ever been in my life. It was a feeling like no other, finishing a hard workout and that feeling of satisfaction afterwards, something you worked so hard for and no one could take it away from you.
After many years of working out and being consistent with my routine, I decided I wanted to get certified and train people. The passion I have for helping people reach their own goals is the most rewarding feeling to me. I love my job and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
For fitness now, I dabble in everything. I weight lift, jog, bike, kangoo jump, you name it and I’ve probably tried it! My goal here is to help you reach your fitness goals, no matter how big or small they are. I want you to work hard, but also enjoy what you are doing. I want to help you become the best version of yourself!
