Hello! I am born and raised in Texas and love sports. I grew up playing almsot every sport (my favorite was basketball) and went on to row for The University of Texas at Ausitn. After graduating, I stumbled upon triathlons and fell in love with the sport! Six years later, I am still participating in a handful of triathlons each year.
Outside of training for triathlons, I am outside soaking up the sun (when there is sun!) with my pup at a park, hiking or going out for a bike ride.
One of my favorite things about Portland would be the beer and food and coffee of course!
My favorite client story
One of my favorite client success stories is about a gentleman who was significantly overweight and had not stepped foot inside of a gym in many years. His time was in high demand, balancing between his job and two young kiddos. After so many years of neglecting his health by making wrong food choices, not exercising and battling exhaustion of everyday life, he found himself 200 pounds overweight. When he came to me, he had trouble finishing a workout but remained focused and driven for his weight loss goals. After a month of attending my group classes with intermittent one-on-one sessions, he was feeling better than ever! He had more energy during the day and within that month of exercising and changing his diet, he lost 20 pounds!
My favorite exercise
Anything with the barbell or kettlebell!
My favorite quote
"The only way to achieve the impossible is to believe it's possible"--Alice in Wonderland
My training philosophy
Every person is unique, so to train in a way that is tailored to that uniqueness, movements become more efficient, pain is decreased and overall satisfaction is reached.
