I’ve been active my entire life, but my journey, like so many others’, has not been linear. The extreme version of my ‘fitness self’ included an extremely regimented and restrictive relationship with the gym and food. It’s a mentality I leaned into, and then away from, more times than I can count.
After years (and years) of obsessing about calories and carbs earned and burned, it was when I had to pause to rehabilitate an injury that I realized how much my mental health was tied up in fitness. And when I finally qualified as a fitness trainer (after years of “somedays”), it just clicked for me that fitness is about so much more than aiming for numbers – on a scale, on a tag, or in a tracking app.
Shortly after gaining my fitness certifications, I grew a little human for 9 months. I LOVED training while pregnant. It felt so empowering to keep my body strong while performing this anatomical miracle. I was so in awe of all that a woman’s body is capable of.
I, like every other woman I know, have been there and done it with exercise and dieting. But I finally know that my best self is the version who feels powerful and positive after exercise. Who feeds my body with good nutrition, but doesn’t deprive my soul of the foods that bring me joy. Who isn’t prepared to sacrifice the quality time (and deliciousness!) that my real life is so rich in to achieve a specific body fat percentage. Who believes that building a strong life adds much more value to myself and my community than trying to shrink myself ever will.
Before fitness was my profession, I gained, quite literally, a world of experience; in corporate pressures, relationships, injury & recovery, mental wellness, motherhood, and the general complexity of being a woman in the world today. This collection of life experience gives me an unequivocally empathetic approach to my clients, their mindset, and their goals. Consider me not just a fitness coach, but an advocate to help you live your best life.
