My love of movement began as a child and has stayed with me through the years. As an adult, I struggled to find the right balance between work, family and exercise. Often times, things were just “too crazy” to squeeze in a trip to the gym. My exercise regimen was pushed to the back burner more than once, especially after having kids. And although I missed it terribly, I couldn’t seem to find a way to bring it back into my life.
One night while watching “The Biggest Loser” it hit me. The participants were in agony, running on treadmills with sweat pouring off their bodies and some, vomiting in the corner. I thought, “if these guys can find the motivation to get through this, what is my excuse!?” So began my re-entry into the world of fitness. Thank you, NBC!
It came back slowly but each year I was able to add new routines into my daily life. I began by attending one group fitness class a week and over time, I was able to add multiple classes including strength building, kickboxing and spinning. I was so inspired by my new found energy that I became certified to teach three different types of Group Fitness classes and subsequently obtained my Personal Trainer Certification.
In our attempt to achieve overall wellness it is more important than ever to have a physical and mental outlet for ourselves. As we juggle family schedules, work, and community commitments we often put ourselves last. But how can we be our best for those who need us when we aren’t truly “well” ourselves? As an On-Site Personal Trainer, my goal is to help you weave fitness back into your daily life.
