"My fitness journey started when I was 23 years old. I remember looking at myself in the mirror and feeling weak, overweight and disappointed. I loved my athletic life when I was in high school and somehow, I fell into the trap of binging fast food and partying too much in college. I could see it and feel it. That's when I promised myself that I would always take care of my body, but I knew that just a promise was not enough.
I started researching nutrition and exercise. I was truly fascinated by all I learned and surprised there was so much I didn't know. A new passion had bloomed. I decided to go back to school and learn more. This time, I didn't want to just help myself. I wanted to tell everyone about my newly discovered "secret".
I am now 32 and haven't looked back. I absolutely love teaching and helping people live healthier and happier lives. All the struggle was absolutely worth it.
There were times nobody believed in me and times I didn't believe in myself. Endless days of failing but getting up and trying again...and again. I didn't see any results the first day, week, month or even months after that. But I kept pushing through. There were times when juggling school, work and family became a struggle, but I kept thinking that if I don’t do it, I can't teach it.
I can truly tell you that no matter what obstacles come your way, never give up on YOU - on your dreams, your body, your mind. Take care of you and everything else will fall into place.
You will see results, people will start believing, you will feel the best you have ever felt before. You can do this!"
