My Inspiration: My inspiration comes from so many people-- my clients and class members that show up and push themselves every session or class and my mom who aspires to be her best self in the gym and exercises 5 days a week in her 50s despite a very recent ACL surgery.

Favorite Teaching Moment: I can't come up with a specific moment but I love my class members! They make teaching a blast and always keep me and each other laughing to get through the workout. I enjoy coming up with a challenging workout that they might hate during but love and feel accomplished after!

Fitness Philosophy: Ability and effort are not fixed. If you give it your all, good things will happen.

Favorite Workout: HIIT style workouts-- I like to get my heart rate up then switch to a heavier lift trying to keep my heart rate up followed by a period of rest or less intensive exercise and repeat! My favorite muscle group to train is legs, I find myself getting the most creative and the best workout during leg training days.

Favorite Snacks: Pre-workout: overnight oats for breakfast about an hour or so before I train
Post-workout: a slice of Ezekiel toast with peanut butter, banana slices & cinnamon

Random Fact: I'm "an absolute savage limbo-er" as my brother would say. I've been known to win a few random contests of limbo at weddings/resort vacations.
