I have a huge passion for fitness and being overall healthy outside of just exercise. I want to someday own my own gym or personal training studio and hope to live somewhere warm to get out of this Midwest weather! I knew I wanted to be a personal trainer because I want to help people and spread my knowledge to others about what I am passionate about. I also love being around people and seeing them grow and progress! I think that is the most fun part about this job is watching your clients progress, whether it be through weight, confidence of being on the 1st floor, or just taking the initiative of picking up their first weight!


Being fit takes time and patience, so don’t expect results quickly! Be patient, discipline, and be 100% in, and you will see the results!
