About Grace

I'm not your typical trainer... I wasn't a high school or college athlete. I'm not a fitness competitor-turned-trainer. I don't have a personal weight loss journey to tell about. But what I do have to tell about, is the story of taking my life back, and a passion to share that with others. I experienced some pretty close calls with my health throughout high school and college. The doctors prognosis didn't sit well with me, which was that I would be prone to these issues my whole life and probably continue to be in and out of the hospital. I took it upon myself to learn all I could about the human body and the impact of nutrition and exercise. That was over 10 years ago, and I haven't been back in the hospital (or even the doctors office) once. After college I spent several years managing a wellness center. This experience inspired me to do more to help people, so I pursued my continued education and career in group fitness and personal training. I love working with individuals new or returning to exercise. I also have additional certifications in prenatal and postpartum exercise which I used on myself before, during, and after my 2 pregnancies. I especially enjoy working with anyone experiencing recurring injuries or aches/pains... our bodies are so responsive if we train them and fuel them properly! I love to see people take their life back! At the end of the day... I'm not going to fuss over the number on the scale. I'm going to focus on each individuals abilities, and keeping them strong and healthy (if there is weight to be lost, it generally happens as a result of focusing on overall strength and health). I WILL ask you about your nutrition but again, in the sense of keeping you fueled and healthy... not to focus on calorie counting. I absolutely love what I do, and look forward to meeting you!
