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 high school. I played volleyball in high school and then for one 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 work out because I knew that group environments motivated others. That’s when I started a group called “Beast Mode”. We met at 6 AM every Saturday, and I watched it grow each week through word of mouth.
I love to watch everyone’s confidence grow knowing that they are feeling great inside and out.
I enjoy helping people with their goals and their personal journey. I believe any fitness transformation begins on the inside: it’s a mental game much more than a physical one. I love to watch my clients as their confidence grows. It’s very rewarding to see them smile so hard you can feel their heart smile. I love celebrating small and big accomplishments with them, as there’s no goal too small. I get to know every person I work with very well and together, we create a safe and positive environment where they can be themselves!
Two more things about me:
I remind myself of my goals: to be healthy and agile throughout life.
I try to shoot for 3-5x a week. Some weeks it’s more; others, less.
I recommend really listening to your body. Is it sore, are you tired, has work/life been stressful this week? Those are the types of questions I ask myself. When you workout, you should feel healthy – both physically and mentally.
I usually cook over the weekend, since that’s when I have the most free time. I’ll go grocery shopping during the week and then cook over the weekend, and if I wasn’t able to do it, then I’ll schedule it during the week.
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 know I need to make a new schedule to make it work!
