Bio: I come from an athletic background, growing up primarily playing volleyball and dancing. However, my fitness journey didn’t really begin until my sophomore year of high school where I began a summer strength and conditioning program to enhance my volleyball skills. During this time in high school, I also developed a very poor relationship with food, and I didn’t understand the correct way of being healthy. Both of these experiences led me into pursuing a degree in Health Promotion/Wellness, where I transformed my thinking of what being healthy and fit really means. I also discovered how much passion I have for fitness and wanting to change people’s lives through their health and wellness.
Now that I have graduated from UWSP, I am super excited to be joining the Personal Training team. I am also a Group Fitness Instructor here at 212, and am working towards getting certified as an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and NETA Group Exercise Instructor.
I am extremely excited to be a part of the team here, helping YOU achieve your fitness goals through personal training and group fitness!
Certifications: BS Health Promotion/Wellness
Training Philosophy: ““The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.” Breaking outside of your comfort zone and doing something new or different is where change and growth happens!
The Reason I Became a Personal Trainer: I am very passionate about fitness and helping others, so being a personal trainer allows me to help others with their health and fitness goals.
Why I'm So Passionate about Fitness: Fitness is an amazing outlet for relieving stress, forgetting your worries, pushing past self-defeating thoughts, having fun, and becoming a better version of yourself each and every day.
My Approach to Training People: My training philosophy is to meet you where you’re at and create a fun, motivating, and goal-oriented training plan to enhance your life.
The Most Important Aspect of Fitness: Mental and emotional wellness. How healthy you are on the inside determines how healthy your body can be on the outside. If you have zero motivation, energy, self-confidence, or happiness, it is so much more difficult to be active.
