Position: Personal Trainer 

Hometown: Durant, IA

How long have you worked for us?: Since November 2017

What have you learned from working here?: I have learned so much from my amazing coworkers! I love the family type atmosphere, everyone is so supportive an driven. They have really pushed me to become a better trainer and fully dive into what makes me passionate. 

What is something interesting about yourself?: I love the art of photography and do work semi-professionally on the side. 

What do you like to do in your spare time?: Besides spending time working out I love hiking, kayaking, and paddle boarding. If I am outside and active I am a happy camper. 

What is one thing you wish everyone knew about working in your position?: Personal Training can be for anyone! You don't need to be in shape or in 100% health. There are trainers on staff who can work towards whatever fitness goal you have. 

If you could eat any food every day for the rest of your life without any health consequences, what would it be?: I would definitely have to say something sweet like cake or cookies! Costco makes a pretty mean chocolate fudge cake - I am talking full Matilda style! :)
