As a newer mom myself, I enjoy helping other moms recover from pregnancy & shrink their waists from the inside through diet & exercise. Most moms can't figure out on their own why their waists won't go down & why they still look pregnant... it's because of an abdominal separation during & after pregnancy called Diastasis Recti. I am an advocate of educating women to properly recover their core after having babies or gaining excess weight as an adult.
I am very easy to get along with and am an open book when it comes to fitness. You can ask me anything, anytime! My goal for my clients it to orient them to starting & completing an exercise program, being confident to exercise on their own & of course helping them reach their weight loss goals along the way. I will hapilly train my clients for life; however, I prefer to help them gain the confidence to exercise & meal plan on their own by developing the skillset to do so during our trainer-client relationship.
Trainers do not always educate their clients along the way & often insist that they just do what they're told,... to follow the plan because it works. At least that was my personal experience. I was previously an NPC Bikini Competitor training with a well known fitness team & I absolutely loved seeing my body transform. At the peak of my competition career, tons of gym members, co-workers, friends & family constantly asked me for gym advice & to show them how to exercise. I loved helping people get started in the gym & ultimately I decided to pursue it as a career, transitioning part-time during evenings & weekends to build my client base.
My initial certifications included Insanity Live Instructor (July 2013), NASM Certified Personal Trainer (August 2013) & Piloxing (May 2015). I've since taught various class formats such as Butts & Guts, Kickboxing, Body Sculpt, Cardio Sculpt, Stretch, Silver Sneakers, Pilates & more! I've worked at various gyms including Gold's Gym, Anytime Fitness, Brickhouse Cardio Club, Health & Strength & Black Belt Taekwondo.
I run a free fitness community called 239 Fit Moms, various online fitness challenges, 4, 8 & 12-week online fitness programs for moms & women as well as train clients virtually online from anywhere.
