I’ve watched my mom struggle with her weight for most of her life and I felt an increased pressure to be thin. Growing up, I was always involved in some activity, but when I got to college, I noticed it wasn’t as easy to stay active - and my body began to notice. After I took the initial step of getting a personal trainer, I felt confident working out on my own. In fact, I became obsessed with it and sometimes went to the gym twice a day just to pass the time. Even though my waistline was getting smaller, my self-confidence wasn’t growing. And after years of just doing cardio and minimal weights, I was introduced to strength training. Strength training has allowed me to push myself in ways that cardio couldn’t. I began to appreciate my curves, and I now workout for myself instead of the acceptance of others.
It wasn’t until college that I got into fitness. Prior to that, I felt lost and uneasy at the sight of a gym. Resistance training was very unfamiliar to me, but then I found a personal trainer who taught me the basics and I fell in love. The uneasy feeling dissipated and I became much more confident in not only working out independently, but in myself. As a trainer, I hope that I can have this effect on my clients and instill the same sense of accomplishment and confidence, so that they can become the best version of themselves.
