I help women lose fat, gain strength, and feel good in their skin with practical and healthy methods tailored to their goals, preferences, and lifestyles. You are unique, and your program and coaching should be too.
I train clients in their homes and outside in local parks, using a variety of implements -- dumbbells, resistance bands, kettlebells, sandbags, and TRX suspension trainer. I also give them downloadedable resources, like a restaurant guide, a protein shake how-to, a dynamic warm-up cheatsheet, and nutrition handbook, among others.
I've always been athletic, playing soccer and other sports, snow skiing, and running from a young age. I continued playing soccer into college and coached several youth and high school teams. I've completed 8 half-marathons and countless 5Ks, 10Ks, and 15Ks over the years. I competed in a bodybuilding competition in 2014, placing 4th in the Novice class. This competition was me really leaning into discomfort, as I'm naturally a shy introvert, and the thought of getting on stage in a teeny tiny bikini and stripper heels was terrifying! It was an amazing learning experience and gave me confidence to do other things that scared me.
This is what I like to stress to clients and in my blog posts and emails --- when you attempt to do the things that make you nervous and scared, you build confidence and competence. This feed forward cycle just keeps going and affects every area of your life. Action creates motivation.
