I coach because I believe everyone needs someone in their corner telling them, "YES YOU CAN!"...
My fitness journey began when I was a child, and I was always game for a competition. I grew up with 3 siblings, and I always had to be the one getting somewhere the fastest or trying my best to perfect everything and anything that was physically active.
Everything was going very well until I became sick with disease. I had numerous doctors tell me it was going to progress, and things were only going to get worse from here. I was determined to prove the doctors wrong. Through a mindset of shear determination, as well as numerous trial and errors, I was able to find the combination of the right doctor and treatment to get me feeling like me again. It was at this point that I made a goal for myself to help others put their health first.
You see, the treatments that made the most impact for me were natural ones. Despite everyone telling me to rest and not be active, I realized exercise was my best medicine. Through healthy eating and exercise, I have been able to become the healthiest I have ever been. I feel amazing every day, and I am back to my old self of always being game for a new competition. My husband and I are always creating challenges for ourselves to keep us constantly striving to be a better person.
I love to train people because I simply feel it is why I am here. I am a Christian, and feel that everyone was put on this earth for a reason and a purpose. Changing clients lives to become healthy and reach their goals is what I have found to be my calling. I have had other 'traditional' career positions, but nothing even comes close to the satisfaction I get from helping someone achieve a goal they never thought they would get a chance at. For some, this means succeeding at a physical goal they've never been able to achieve. For others, this is training for specific events such as a race, a game, season, vacation, wedding or any others you can think of!
I believe everyone needs a coach, we all deserve someone in our corner that sees our dreams bigger then we do and when our mind gets tired, and our body feels like giving up, I will be there yelling YES YOU CAN every step of the way. To provide the best training experience to my athletes that I can, I decided to pursue education and training in a broad spectrum of training philosophies that include becoming a nationally certified personal trainer, as well as obtaining national group fitness certifications that include Les Mills Body Pump, Les Mills GRIT, Piloxing, Piloxing Barre, Piloxing Knockout and Healthways Silver Sneakers.
I honestly believe having a healthy life is the greatest gift.
