I don’t think I chose fitness, I believe it chose me. I took the nutrition and wellness route after being failed time and time again by traditional medicine and doctors. Fitness was always a personal staple for me, as I learned how much food could improve my fitness performance. I pushed myself to learn more and help others through both nutrition and fitness.
-How long have been into Fitness?
I would say all of my life! When I was 8 years old my dad made my brother and I ride our bikes to the track and run a mile non stop, every morning at 6am. It was a summer ritual even after I moved out of my parents house. I spent my summers teaching dance at summer camps. During the school year I’d run track and swim. In college I worked and worked out at the universities HPER. I was also part of my sororities step team. If I wasn’t injured, I was moving! Currently, I find new programs to push myself. I’m obsessed with Lagree Fitness, it’s really changed my body.
-What are your certifications in?
I am a certified personal trainer and a certified Lagree Fitness Instructor.
-What makes you different than any other trainer?
I believe my ability to identify and break down what is holding my clients back sets me apart. There is a difference between knowing the information and knowing when to apply it. Everyone’s challenges and goals are so unique, I truly enjoy the problem solving side of training and nutrition.
-How do you stay motivated to workout?
My personal goals keep me motivated, there’s always something new I want to learn or master. I know the more experience I have, the more people I can impact.
-If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
If I could go anywhere it would be South Africa!
-Is it a deal breaker if your significant other doesn’t workout?
Yes! It’s literally all I do in my free time. I want someone with the same health and wellness values as me so they can push me and I can push them. You can’t grow if you’re constantly helping others, you’ve got to have time to grow yourself. A significant other who isn’t into health and wellness could cause me to limit myself.
-Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I see myself in another major city, owning my own business as a CNS, looking even better than I do today!💪🏽
