I most definitely didn’t grow up as an “athlete.” I’m still not really, I consider myself a recreational triathlete, but not hardcore by any means. In fact, I’m not really a fan of going to gyms (except for lap swimming sometimes). I’m just a regular mom, who would rather get my workouts done efficiently at home so that my rare no-babies time can be spent on stuff like – trivia nights, superhero movies, or wandering a bookstore.
In fact, books got me here. I just loved studying health sciences, specifically physiology. Is there anything more interesting than the human body? It amazes me! And the more I got into the fitness industry, the more I grew dissatisfied with the way it capitalizes on the insecurities of people who are just hoping to find a better way to live their lives. I decided I’d never be that way to you.
My goal is not to let you know what’s wrong with you – there are plenty of advertisers already attempting to do that – my goal is to simply help you achieve your personal wellness goals in a way that is simple and sustainable for your current life situation.
I believe that mindset and body-image are hugely important for women, especially pregnant and postpartum women, when all of these expectations are placed on us, in addition to, you know, giving birth and caring for an infant! I believe that you can respect and appreciate your body even if you want to make changes.
I’m currently putting my newly postpartum self through the very same nutrition system I offer clients, because I deeply believe in its benefits (for me and my baby) and it’s completely manageable even with two little ones.
And if we get to work together, you’ll probably hear references to superheroes (I’m team DC), The Office, and Seinfeld.
