"I have always had a passion for health and fitness and have spent several years studying the human body, how it moves and functions from the inside out. I turned my passion into my profession and became a personal trainer and health coach. I grew up as an athlete playing in various sports, from the age of five to a walk-on D1 athlete for The University of Texas to training for my first multi-day backpacking trip.

I had the privilege of training all types of athletes from weekend-warriors to professional endurance athletes, but I find the most joy in coaching your everyday people.

Everyday people who are wanting to utilize strength training to supplement their active lifestyles: like the busy professional wanting to utilize weights to get ready for their next backpacking adventure; or the entrepreneur wanting to learn more about healthy eating habits to stay mentally sharp; or the newly retiree wanting to up their golf game.

Being a coach and having been coached has brought me a sense of empowerment and self-confidence that no one can take away. I want everyone to have that feeling. That feeling of self-confidence no matter the size their jeans; that feeling of empowerment when they can lift a 50pound bag of dirt for their garden; that feeling of hope and self-belief that they can accomplish anything they put their mind to because they do hard things.

My mission and my passionate is delivering the absolute best online training to anyone who is willing to put in the hard work and sweat.

I live by this: Be the person today, that you wished you were yesterday. Never settle."

"I started off as an athletic tomboy from a young age as the baby sister to 3 older brothers. After an experience with childhood trauma, it forced me to grow up rather quickly, become strong and fearless to protect myself. Focusing on my athletics was my outlet, something I could control.

I was heavily involved in sports all through high school and after becoming married and starting my journey as a mom, at that time I had kept up with running for pleasure but not really paying attention to time/pace. It wasn’t until a few years after my last child was born that I started taking running more seriously and started training for time and signing up for races. Then from there about 6 years ago I started lifting weights at home, transforming my underweight, cardio and scale driven body, to a strong, fierce mom-bod! For the last 3 years I’ve also competed in Triathlons- I love a Tri-High! Changing that mindset is life changing and putting in the hard work to create my strong body has been so rewarding.

The pandemic has brought on some really hard times for me mentally, physically, as a mother and wife. December I finally hit rock bottom, my athletics outlet along with reaching out for help, re center me and helped find my focus again. Training has carried me through so many hard times throughout my life, I would be lost without it and forever grateful for my ability to be able to do so. Strong mind, strong body. My goal in sharing my workouts is to inspire and motivate others.You can do this, you’ve got this!"
