EXPERIENCE:
I’ve struggled with my weight and body image for as long as I can remember. During my early twenties I gained a significant amount of weight.  I finally committed to a weight loss program back then and lost over 50 pounds.  Since that time, I had two kids and watched my weight fluctuate like a roller coaster, never fully able to get back into my “skinny jeans”.

A few years ago, fed up with the struggle to lose that stubborn weight, I started training for a local 5K race and added strength training. My goals of being fit and healthy went from being able to fit into my skinny jeans, to wanting to be strong, healthy and athletic. Not only did my commitment to exercise and a healthy diet pay off, but I was able to accomplish things I never thought I would be capable of. I am so passionate about the things people can accomplish through committed exercise and healthy living that I wanted to make it my job to help others feel as good as I do, or better.

FITNESS ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
Lost 60 lbs and maintain a fit healthy lifestyle
Completed two Half Ironman distance triathlons
Completed multiple Half Marathons
Completed two Full Marathons

FITNESS PHILOSOPHY:
I believe that people greatly underestimate themselves.  I know, because I underestimated myself!  Give yourself the time and the focus to make healthy choices every day and make fitness a priority, which really means making you a priority.  It won’t be a point A to point B journey, there will be many bends and twists on the road between, but your goals should always be in sight. Take small measurable steps, ask for help when you need it, and be patient enough with yourself to let your body adapt to the process.

TYPICAL TRAINING WEEK FOR ME:
3-4 days of strength training with kettlebells, TRX and functional training at GTS, 2-3 days of cardio workouts that include running, but I also enjoy Pilates, yoga and my new favorite hobby, paddleboarding.  Basically, just keep moving.

FAVORITE MOVIE:
I am a sucker for chick flicks. My favorite movie is The Holiday.  Who can resist Jude Law’s British accent?

FAVORITE ADVOCARE PRODUCTS:
Catalyst to help preserve your hard earned lean muscle and Mango Strawberry Spark.
