“No regrets, just results”
Areas of ExpertisE
Strength and Conditioning
I first got into fitness because I wanted to build muscle, strength and confidence. Growing up I was very thin, petite, awkward and never played sports. I decided I wanted to make a change in my appearance and start lifting weights to gain weight, and feel more comfortable in my own skin. After seeing how diet and exercise transformed my body I was convinced to make fitness apart of my lifestyle. I was studying science at my junior college and became really interested in how intricate every system in the human body is and they all work together to keep us alive. I got my Associate's Degree in General Science from Solano Community College and transferred to California State University Sacramento. Although I never played sports, my interest in science and how adaptive the human body is made studying Kinesiology a perfect fit for me. During my undergrad, I worked at a Physical Therapy Clinic as a Physical Therapist Aide where I learned a lot about corrective exercises, pain management and treatment. I also learned a lot about which direction I wanted to take my career, I realized I wanted to do something more active and hands on.
My philosophy to training is to help others live a healthier, happier and more active lifestyle. My approach to this is helping people identify their goals, not just physical but mental. Helping others learn to understand their body and how it works, the "why" behind diet and exercise. Giving them the knowledge they need to be successful in their fitness goals. Finding out the kinds of workouts or physical activities that make them happy and making that apart of the training program. Helping others understand its okay to be flexible, find a balance and not to be too critical on themselves. We are living in a time where social media controls what we see and makes us feel like we need to look a certain way to be accepted by others. So letting people know not to be too critical of themselves, or that they need to look a certain way to be happy. I want everyone to be the best versions of themselves, however that may look. Lastly, celebrating the milestones and appreciating how far you've come is very important in achieving goals but also, learning to grow an appreciation for oneself and building self confidence.
