Where it all began…I was born in DC but lived in Orlando for 12 years while growing up. We moved back to MD in 2004 and I started HS. In HS I played Volleyball and then a 1 year in college. I graduated with an Associated in Business at Howard Community College.
I have been in the physical training industry since 2013 when I first started a group fitness class. I wanted to bring people together to workout because I knew that group environments motivated others. So I started a group called Beast Mode. We met at 6 am every Saturday. It grew every Saturday through word of mouth.
When I saw that I could bring people together I knew I was on to something.
I enjoy helping people with their goals and their personal journey. I believe any fitness transformation begins with the inside first. Its a mental game more than it is a physical one.I love seeing the confidence continue to build in my clients. It is very rewarding to see them smile so hard you can feel their heart smile. I love celebrating small and big accomplishments with them. All accomplishments should be celebrated. I get to know my personal clients very well and together create a safe a positive environment.
- I love dogs but specifically dachshunds.
- I love how working out makes me feel. It makes me feel like a bad ass!
How do you stay motivated?
I remind myself of my goals. To be healthy and agile throughout life.
How often do you workout?
I try to shoot for 3-5x a week. Some weeks are more, others are less.
How many rest days should someone take in a week?
I recommend really listening to your body. Is it sore, are you tired, has work/life been stressful this week? Those are types of questions I ask myself. When you workout you should be in a healthy state.
When do you make time to cook?
I usually cook over the weekend. That’s when I have the most free time. I’ll grocery shop during the week and cook over the weekend. If I cant cook over the weekend then I schedule it during the week.
When do you make time to workout?
Life can be very busy and sometimes overwhelming but what helps me stay on track is making a schedule and sticking to it. If I keep missing it I make a new schedule to make it work!
