As the goaltender on my soccer team I was always pushed hard to be the best. the last line of defense is an important role to play in soccer. Try to think of yourself as the last person standing in the way between all of the barriers being shot at you and your fitness goals. You can imagine why it takes training and focus to stop those shots. Time, lack of motivation, tiredness and low self esteem are all hard shots to stop, and I get that…But from my own experience, I know that not allowing them to slip past you is the key to success.

My journey to becoming a personal trainer started when i realized how fun fitness could be. I wasn’t a very fit kid and my memories of gym class weren’t very pleasant, but that changed when I started strength training. I explored weight training around the age of 18 and felt this amazing strength and confidence growing from within. I also had the good fortune of taking an indoor cycling class taught by a fun, engaging and dynamic instructor who cracked jokes, laughed at her own, played crazy 80’s music and knew her participants names and abilities. She made fitness fun and I was hooked. I started sharing my new passion with friends and family, from there it evolved into a career. My goal is to transfer as much knowledge to my clients and as I can to make fitness approachable, achievable, fun and empowering.
