How did you first become interested in fitness?
I’ve been athletic my entire life, constantly playing sports (soccer, track & field, swimming) and going to the gym I am also an avid marathon runner, running in marathons around the country including NYC, LA, San Diego, and Boston. Eventually, after 6 years in a 9-5 digital advertising job, I made the change and pursued a career in fitness as a personal trainer.
What inspired you to become a personal trainer?
I’ve always had a strong interest in anatomy, kinesiology, biomechanics and everything else related to the human body. Working with a personal trainer made me realize how much I didn't know when training. This inspired me to switch sides and become a trainer. Learning from other trainers is the best part about the business! I also LOVE my clients and find joy in inspiring each and every one of them to achieve their fitness goals.
What does being a good trainer mean to you?
Simply put, being motivating, well educated, and continuously learning about the different parts of the body, how to train them, and WHY.
What is your favorite workout tip or technique?
I LOVE THE TRX! Everyone should be able to lift their bodyweight to sustain a healthy lifestyle in and outside of the gym, and the TRX is the perfect tool to get you there!
What do you like to do outside of the gym?
I love to go to musical festivals, hang with friends, and check out new food spots!
What are your goals?
My next goal is to start teaching group bootcamp and TRX classes. Long term, I hope to someday have my own studio.
