HOW I GOT INTO FITNESS?

I am a former high school volleyball player and track athlete, who used to struggle with being 6 feet tall and lanky. Through out college, I would run to relieve stress, and over time it became an unhealthy addiction. If I ate a cookie, I felt I had to go for a run to make up for it, and my obsessive relationship with food and exercise negatively impacted various areas of my life. I was not flourishing. I was not focusing on what my body could do, but using exercises purely to either relieve stress or punish myself for what I ate. It wasn't until my last year of college and well into my first internship after school that my relationship with exercise changed for the better.

 

At this point in my life, I was uncomfortable lifting weights because I didn't know what I was doing when I was on my own, and never saw many females in the free weight section in the gym. 

When I was first introduced to the weight room, I was cautious and curious. I was interning at a performance clinic, being mentored by and working alongside coaches who were training professional baseball and football players. It was a rather intimidating first internship to have, but I learned valuable lessons there and was stretched outside my comfort zone in many ways.

At this clinic, I had a coach I was mentoring under assess my movement, design me a program, and walk me through the 'how to's' on form for each and every lift I was prescribed. I finally started to feel a little bit of confidence performing the exercises on my own. My mindset shifted from feeling the need to be 'small' to wanting to be 'strong' and seeing what my body was capable of. I felt stronger, more feminine and had muscular curves that I'd never had before. It was so empowering, and I was in! I ended up going back to school to get a masters degree and after sitting for several certifications, I was training all sorts of people.

 

Was I good at everything the first time I stepped foot in a gym? Absolutely not. Did I experience failure? Yes, many times, but I learned this is the best way to grow and improve. Failure ended up being my best teacher. I gained confidence. I gained strength. I began to move more efficiently, feel better, and think more clearly.

WHY I CREATED THIS WEBSITE

 

I want you to experience all of the things I did when I made weight training + conditioning a lifestyle habit. I don't want you to see exercise as punishment or something you 'have' to do, but rather something you enjoy and 'get' to do. It's literally changed my life, and I am passionate about helping you experience these same victories. It takes hard work, but it can also be really fun, and as a result, you flourish!

If you feel intimidated walking into the weights section in your gym, or just directionless, you are not alone! 

You are the only one who can take the first step to improve the fuel you consume and the movement you perform, so you can flourish in life. It's time to start saying yes to yourself to see what you can do!
