I have been a competitive athlete my whole life. I spent an entire decade as an outdoor, adventure athlete. I was an avid snowboarder, cyclist, rock climber and surfer. To balance out all the pounding I was putting on my body, I discovered yoga when I was 20 years-old. To this day, I still practice and teach yoga to others. Yet, what has stolen my heart these days is weight training and competitive bodybuilding. Why? Simple: weight training and proper nutrition is the fountain of youth!
Looking back on my youth as an athlete, it is not hard for me to admit that I knew very little about proper nutrition, or even how I could use nutrition to reach my goals much more efficiently than exercise alone.
Prior to being serious about weight training, I was a cardio queen. I couldn't figure out why hours of cardio (running, biking, dancing) were not giving me the body I was desiring to have as a female athlete. I felt defeated and often discouraged. That's when I decided to make some major life decisions, like hiring a trainer and coach. Since hiring my first coach, I have gone on to learn so much about proper fitness and nutrition. The investment I made in myself has left me feeling proud to live in my beautiful, bold body.
By educating myself, and working with other fitness experts, I too have transformed. All my dedication to the fitness industry has allowed many dreams come true, like being a paid fitness model. For the last several years, I have been expanding in the world of fitness modeling and branding. I have worked with respected artists such as, Real David Art and Kai York. In June of 2017, I was even featured in a magazine. I can even help you reach your goal of getting in the best shape of your life for a photo shoot, one of the most liberating and memorable experiences you can ever gift yourself.
These days, my main goals are to help women embrace daily life through healthy choices and fitness. I want to teach women how proper nutrition and fitness are the key to lifelong youth and radiant beauty. I want women to get off the yo-yo diet and just embrace daily nutrition and the understanding of macro-nutrients to help them reach their goals. In fact, my approach to fitness is for ALL women! Young, older, kids, no kids, busy, or retired. I am here to help you bring out that beautiful, sexy, bold self!
I truly love helping women step into their power and to support the transformation of their mind, spirit and body.
With all of my clients, I create programs based on our consultations, simple surveys, data and analysis of progress, and general connection. I feel the better I know a client, the more successful and happy they will be.
If you are tired of not getting results, then stop now and just reach out. End those days of yo-yo dieting. I offer many ways in which you can find long lasting health, regardless of the obstacles you face. Build the life you want. Build the body that you want. Build a freer and happier mind. Build a life that connects the mind, soul and body. Come on beautiful, it's time!
