What matters most to me is spreading health and wellness to my family and community. It all started when I was a young teen reading nutrition labels and my father taught me how to ride a bike on the St. Charles Rail Trail. I’m here to tell you that healthy lifestyles are not unicorns. It is possible to balance family, friends, work and maintain your healthy choices. Though I studied business management, my real passion is for health and wellness. My experiences range from body-weight training, nutrition, resistance training, cardio endurance, race prep (running and cycling), and more fun! Wellness means omething different for everyone and I’m here to help you succeed.

 Personal

In the midst of completing my Bachelors in Fashion Design, which was a dream of mine since youth, I started taking Pilates classes at a local gym and fell in love. I gained a desire to not only practice Pilates, but teach it. My eyes had been opened to a whole new adventure. I decided to shift my career path in such a way that I could help people bring life back into their bodies through health and fitness. While having a full time career in the fashion industry, I studied towards my personal training certification. My family moved from California to Michigan in 2016 and upon that move I passed my NASM exam and left the fashion industry behind to focus solely on personal training and fitness. I know this is what I was meant to do, and I love serving people in a way that creates a life change towards their health and well-being.

17 years ago, I walked into my first gym and immediately knew it was a place that would positively change my life forever. Daily my passion and respect for the sport grows by talking with and gaining knowledge from all types of fitness enthusiasts. This would include bodybuilders, powerlifters and those who are just looking to build a healthier lifestyle around cardiovascular endurance. Two years ago, I was presented with the opportunity to work with a 13-year-old national wrestler. At that moment I realized I wanted to do more to help others reach their goals which has led me to earning my ACE certification. With my ACE certification, extensive background with fitness and business management and a wide variety of resources available I am prepared to help all potential clients from all ages reach their goals. I look forward to continuing my education within fitness and to build my personal network. This will allow me to continue to help others live an improved and healthy lifestyle.

 Personal

I have always had a love for fitness and that love has continued to develop as I have tried different sports. From volleyball to soccer to cross country, I have learned the
importance of a healthy mind and body. My goal is to show others how amazing it is to constantly improve their physical and mental health, not just in the weight room, but in their
daily lives as well. Trying new training techniques and sports has helped me find that my true passion is cardio, but I always like to mix it up and incorporate resisance training into my workout plan. I hope that I can help others find their passion as well, and turn their goals into reality.

 Personal

For many years I struggled with low self-esteem, confidence issues, and even eating disorders. After realizing the effect that exercise had on both my physical and mental health, I knew that I wanted to help others the way that others had helped me. I have a long line of experience with competitive and leisurely running and swimming, weightlifting, and have recently began practicing yoga and preparing to obtain my certification. I look forward to helping clients achieve any goal, whether it be athleticism, weight loss, or just general fitness; and hope to give back to the community in the form of health and wellness!

 Personal

I have always enjoyed staying active by playing sports, but I didn’t become serious about exercising until the end of high school when my gym teacher required the class to run a 5k as the final exam. I felt so rewarded by the accomplishment and challenge of the race. It gave me two realizations: 1) I can’t live without exercise and 2) I want to help people feel the same way I felt about exercise. Exercise has the power to transform your mind and body entirely. I use various training methods for all types of bodies and minds to create an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I am inspired by people who have a constant desire to work hard and create a better version of themselves, and I hope to inspire you in the same way. With that being said, I can’t wait to help you challenge yourself and improve your well-being.

 Personal

I specialize in sports performance for youth and adult athletes. With the broad coverage of my degree in Exercise Science, I also have extensive knowledge to help the anyone with their health and wellness goals. I have practical experience that includes personal training, instructing fitness classes, teaching at the collegiate level, and fitness testing for special populations. I also interned with the Head Strength and Conditioning Coordinator at Northwood University, Scott Fisher. During the internship, I worked with multiple athletic teams instructing them on proper form and technique, spotting, and maximizing potential. My health and wellness philosophy is “a healthier you is not a number on
the scale or change in clothing size, but a change in mindset” meaning being healthier is not about focusing on how you look on the outside but focusing on an overall commitment to healthy living.
