What would YOU attempt to do, if you knew you could not fail?
I graduated from Lindenwood University with my B.S. in Developmental Psychology. I also earned honors credits and am a member of the National Honor Society in Psychology. I began my personal training career in 2005 at a local "big box" gym. During that time I continued my education, earning a plethora of nationally recognized certifications (NASM CPT, NASM CES, NASM PES, ACE CPT, AFAA, APEX, BodyBugg, GROUP X). I later gained invaluable experience as an assistant fitness manager and earned the highest rank of Master Trainer while also coordinating special incentive weight loss challenges and educating other trainers within our company.
By August of 2010, I had outgrown the corporate gym environment and joined an elite private training studio. This environment allowed me to develop my own training style and cater to my clients better with "as needed" services. Furthermore, I was able to cater to my niche market of bikini and figure athletes who didn't need a "gym membership" to train with me.
As my business grew I began offering online training to clients all over the country, especially bikini, figure and fitness athletes. I also embarked on a year long dynamic yoga teacher training program with Robin Lockard Buck at Jane's House of Well-Being. This new education was vital to me being able to help offer my clients insight on living a full and balanced life. Little did I realize that a new journey was about to break through!
In October 2013, my husband and I found ourselves ready to follow our dream of having our own private studio. This new endeavor has allowed us to cater to the WHOLE individual by being able to offer services such as group classes, workshops and massage.
I have learned that people have gotten accustomed to feeling bad. They forget the healing power of proper resistance training, optimal nutrition, smart supplementation, corrective exercise, cardiovascular conditioning, and ideal body composition. Instead of merely treating the symptoms of poor health management, (aches and pains, increasingly poor quality of sleep, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, decreasing energy and out of control blood sugar levels) I will help you get to the root and PREVENT these symptoms through your health and fitness goals.
Success lies in you. My clients are known to lose more weight than they originally thought they were capable of, accomplish physical feats they thought were reserved for those with "youth" on their side, and feel the best they have in their entire lives. While my personal experience and extensive education means that you and your goals are in good hands, it is my positive attitude, encouragement, and patience that will lead you to success... beyond!
