I was a middle school teacher for nine years before I decided to follow my true passion of health and fitness and make a career out of it. I took some time off of work to decide which direction I wanted to go and eventually obtained a Master of Science in Exercise Science and Health Promotion, became an ACE certified personal trainer, and became a NCHEC health education specialist. Last year I obtained my prenatal and postnatal fitness certification from NASM. I am passionate about educating people on how they can lead their best lives by taking a little time for themselves every day. As a mom of two young children I understand how hard that can be!
I want to empower women of all stages to have an incredible quality of life through health and fitness. I promote support for one another and uplift each other through the means of exercise, wellness, and healthy living. It’s more than just getting in a good workout (though this is important, and fun!), but being able to look at your lifestyle and health behaviors and make changes where appropriate. I want to help you overcome hurdles and reach your goals.
With years of experience and education I am capable of analyzing your body and lifestyle to create a fitness plan that will help you reach your goals. These plans can include functional fitness, interval training, strength training, flexibility, and more. I will work with you to keep you on track and motivated to reach your goals. Whether you want to run your best 5k, do a pull up, build muscle mass, fix your abdominal separation from pregnancy, complete a triathlon, or anything else you have your mind set on, I can help you get there!
You know that magical number number of weeks everyone says you should wait until exercising after you've had a baby? 6 weeks? Let me let you in on a little secret... the vast majority of you are not ready to jump right back into exercising at 6 weeks postpartum. Even if you were an avid exerciser before, you need to begin your journey of reentering the fitness world slowly. Your body has gone through a magical, yet damaging time and it needs to rebuild and recover. Your abs most likely still have some separation and your pelvic floor is weak. Through a series of exercises aimed at rebuilding and strengthening your core and pelvic floor muscles, I can facilitate in your recovery and try to get you where you want to be. This can help whether you've just had a baby or are 10 years postpartum! It's never too late to regain control of your body and have it functioning the way it should.
