I am a Certified Personal Trainer. I am a Health & Fitness Life Coach. I am a Fitness (mainly Turbo Kick) Instructor. I am a Mother. I am a Wife. I am a Daughter. I am a Sister. I am a Motivator. I am here to help you!
I’m a mom of a tomboy princess, a wife to a Blackhawk Pilot in the Army, a personal trainer/health & fitness coach/group fitness instructor. In December 2008 I gave birth to the most amazing little girl, however, I might have lost the weight of a child, but I didn’t lose the weight of all the pizza and donuts I consumed throughout the 9 months lol. I am 5’5 and have never really been overweight, but was never really “healthy” either, so when I got pregnant I used it as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted.
As a result I gained 70 pounds!!! When I left the hospital I weighed 180lbs and it stayed that way for about 4 weeks, until I started P90X with my Dad. Little did I know that him introducing me to that workout would absolutely change my life. We did the 90 days I was down a grand total of 40 pounds and I was SO happy. I wasn’t at my goal weight just yet, but I definitely had confidence back and could start feeling muscle for pretty much the first time in my life. I just continued to do P90X and adding spinning classes for cardio.
Shortly after in 2009 we moved to Kansas and because of moving into a new house and getting settled with a 7 month old, I did absolutely NO working out. As a result, I gained 10 pounds back and I was up to 148. That’s when I started Turbo Jam and lost 15 pounds. AND I WAS BACK!
In Jan 2010 I made the leap to become and health and fitness coach with Beachbody. I was already using their products and I obviously believed in them, so I thought, why not help people meet their goals?! Since then I have become Turbo Kick Certified and teach group fitness classes with that workout and workouts of my own that I put together at a local gym and am a Certified Personal Trainer. I know what an emotional roller coaster weight loss can be and how you can just feel so alone sometimes, so I am VERY passionate about helping people in any way that I can. Going through my own journey showed me how much I care about helping people and giving them a shoulder to lean on, especially one that can relate.
