I was never the gym class hero or the girl of athletic wonder skills, but as 10 years of bar-tending packed onto my hips and thighs, something had to give before my knees did. I started working out faithfully in 2008, picking up heavy things and putting them down became my passion and my way of life. I did my first Physique competition in April 2014. It was amazing, rewarding and extremely hard. The confidence that being strong and healthy brought to me was unlike any other feeling I’ve experienced.
I knew what I had to do — ignite that spark for others! I got my Personal Training certification and first did my time in a box gym and got a great opportunity to be involved in Corporate Wellness and group training. I was introduced to Benefit Studio and made myself at home. I have two awesome children who are constantly challenging me to contests whether it be push ups, hill runs, jumps, and other random craziness. And I absolutely always want to win (hahaha). “Suns out, guns out.”
