What’s your inspiration for helping clients or getting into the fitness industry?

 

I love the way training gives me focus and how it makes me feel, that feeling of strength and pushing my own limits. I want to help others achieve that feeling and overcome their fears by taking the intimidation out of the gym and working out. To help them reach their goals and feel better about themselves from the inside out. And to make working out a fun and enjoyable experience, while giving them the tools they need to pursue their journey on their own. 

What’s your favorite exercise?

Deadlifts and squats

What’s your go to healthy snack or guilty pleasure?

 

Healthy snack - Açaí bowl; Guilty pleasure -macarons

Biggest fitness achievement?

 

My biggest fitness achievement would be training throughout both of my pregnancies up to the very end, and coming back afterwards training harder and lifting heavier than before.
