Fitness was not always on my priority list. I used to be a very unhealthy and unfit individual. I got caught in the trap of unhealthy eating and laziness which in turn made me feel sluggish, sick and depressed. As a busy single mother of four young children,working full time and going to school full time, I found myself looking at my massage school graduation picture and being totally and utterly shocked . One day after I realized how awful I felt and looked, I decided I needed to change my lifestyle before things got out of control. I started with Weight Watchers and found that even though I was losing weight, I wasn't getting the fit and healthy look I desired. In October 2009, I joined my first gym and learned all my exercises reading fitness magazines. I was hooked!! I loved the feeling of lifting weights and soon started feeling stronger. I started seeing results and I wanted to work out harder. I filled my fridge and cupboards with healthy foods and started to eat smaller portions every 3 hours. It was also the little changes that made a difference like oatmeal instead of sugary cereal, and eating more fruits and vegetables. I felt like a new person, but then hit a wall in the beginning of 2011. I felt as if I was working so hard, but not seeing as many results. I sought out a personal trainer and he gave me the tools and helped me to build the self confidence to make more changes in my body. I soon started to look leaner and I started to put on some muscle mass which made my body look fitter and smaller. I continued working with my trainer until recently and competed in my first figure competition just 5 days after my 41st birthday! I won 3rd place in the Open Category and 4th place in the Masters (over 35) Category. I can't wait to do another show! I decided to pursue a career in the fitness industry because of all I have learned educating myself and from the people around me. I love my career choice. I love helping others achieve their dream body and learn a healthy lifestyle. I am currently an AAAI/IMSA Certified Personal Trainer, a Certified Group Fitness Instructor, Certified Spin Instructor and a Certified Massage Therapist. I work in the homes of my clients, outdoors as well as out of Healthplex in Springfield, Delaware County.
