"The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow."
Growing up the only thing that anyone cared about was my weight. My parents, teachers, coaches and doctors all told me I was too heavy, and I knew it. The one thing I didn’t know, was why I felt so upset about it all the time.
When I turned 14, things started to change. I asked my parents if I could join a gym in town and they helped me get paired up with my first personal trainer. Frances was amazing, and the inspiration she provided me sticks with me to this day. She taught me to enjoy working out, even though it was super hard for me. She helped me find what worked for me, and the gym became my safe place.
When college came around, it only made sense to study what I came to enjoy the most - health and fitness. I graduated from SUNY Cortland with a BS in Exercise Science and Kinesiology. I worked as a personal trainer throughout college, and have continued that work ever since. I love my work, because I get to teach other people how to properly use and enjoy the movement of their bodies – in whatever way works for them.
For a long time, I only cared about losing weight and trying to fit what everyone else wanted me to be. It took me a while to realize that I am a strong, capable woman! Now, I feel my most comfortable in a gym or park surrounded by others who enjoy moving as much as I do. I wish I had felt that way all those years ago.
Each person should find what they love that keeps them healthy, and I strive to help each of my clients do just that.
