Attention to Signs

Let me be honest, my first twenty years of life were spent living an extremely sluggish existence. My active lifestyle did not begin until after I graduated from college. It was during my first year as a kindergarten teacher that I realized, I felt lethargic all the time. My pants fit too tight, and my entire figure was changing. I knew I had to begin to pay attention to the signs my body was giving me. That summer I signed up for my first half marathon and fell in love with running. I saw how my body responded to different foods, and time outdoors and in the gym. Since crossing that first finish line, I have run 5 full marathons and 11 half marathons.  This drove me to pursue new goals that were also outside of my usual “comfort zone”. This constant search for a mental and physical challenge led me to Stephanie. With her guidance I have now completed 3 NPC bodybuilding competitions in the bikini category, placing 1st in my class at the Lackland Classic.

Achieving 

I found that I especially enjoyed finding ways to share my love for fitness with others. I undertook a new journey as a Body Pump instructor at Golds Gym. I loved the community in each class, as we pushed each other through every track, and I found so much joy in helping others through their own fitness experiences. Today I continue looking for ways to grow mentally and physically, and have found so much appreciation in helping others achieve their potential and goals.
