Who am I?
I am a mother.
I am a wife.
I am a daughter.
I am a sister.
I am a friend.
I am a fitness enthusiast.
My goal has always been to make people feel COMFORTABLE, CAPABLE, and CONNECTED.
COMFORTABLE - in their own skin. Fitness is a lifestyle. The journey is forever changing…. as it should be. We change, so must our journey. Being comfortable is about learning to love yourself in every season.
CAPABLE - of accomplishing anything your heart desires. So many times I hear all the reasons “why” someone feels they can’t do something. I believe in focusing on the things you CAN do, not the things you CAN’T do. There is always a way.
CONNECTED - to one’s inner strength. What type of exercise do you enjoy? What’s your passion? I want to help you figure that out and fall in love with living a healthy lifestyle. Connecting with real people while getting in shape and having fun!
MY FITNESS JOURNEY
My journey with fitness began 23 years ago. After the birth of my second son, a co-worker convinced me to join our local health club. Shortly after, one of the group fitness instructors didn’t show up for class. Standing in a room full of members that were growing increasingly impatient (including myself), I was somehow talked into “filling in” that night….and well, as they say, the rest is history. Twenty-three years later I still love fitness just as much as I did all those years ago. I love every second of it!
Early on in life, all the way through high school, I was very overweight. At 315 pounds I got to the point where I was done living unhealthy and decided to change my habits. I found the gym and that changed everything for me. Walking into that gym became something I looked forward to everyday. It was my outlet, my stress release, my motivation and my confidence that I lost early on in life.
Today I have the pleasure of helping others find what I found and cultivating an environment that is not only welcoming but brings healthy change into peoples lives. Together, alongside my beautiful wife, we are blessed to be able to own Fitness Junky and share our passion.
