I have had a love for health and fitness for as long as I can remember. It began when I saw my first Rocky movie at around age 5. I wanted to be strong just like Rocky. A few years later I got my first Get In Shape Girl-workouts for young girls that consisted of nothing more than a cassette tape for exercise instruction a jump rope and bracelet weights. I was hooked! I also began competitive swimming at this time (age 8) which I continued into college.
In 2011 I made the decision to become a personal trainer and began taking classes. I also decided to run the Pittsburgh Marathon. A year later I was having back surgery to repair a herniated disc. I believed my running days to be over as well as my dream of becoming a trainer. Thankfully this was not the case!
I am now certified through The National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF) and my back is growing strong. As a result of my injury and experiences with it, proper form and safety are paramount to me. I am committed not only to my own health and fitness but to yours as well!
