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. It’s a time 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 myself through the very same nutrition system I offer clients, because I deeply believe in its benefits, and it’s completely manageable even with two little ones. At this point, I’ve lost a little over 50 pounds.
And if we get to work together, you’ll probably hear references to superheroes (I’m team DC), The Office, and Seinfeld.
