Hey guys! =)
I’m a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and was lucky enough to land a full time job right out of school. I now work as a personal trainer which is a dream come true- for now. My purse is a gym-bag, my uniform is workout clothes, and my office is a weight room.
I’ve always been an athlete, so as the typical story goes- I got to eat whatever I wanted and it never made a difference. Enter college: where the organized sports and practices were no longer, but the parties and late-night pizzas were in abundance. Sophomore year was a rough one, and I remember thinking nothing of finishing off an entire box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.
Somehow, I thought running would be a good idea to try and shed the leftover pizza that was becoming my body..
My running story can be found here.
I’m not a fast runner, by any means, but I love running and I had a blast working my way up to 13.1 miles.
I’ve also slightly dabbled in Sprint Triathlon training but have yet to revisit that scene after crossing the finish line- but it’s definitely something I can see myself doing again.
I’ve pulled up Half Iron Man training schedules and kept the windows open on my desktop for weeks at a time but have yet to take the plunge whole-heartedly.
I’m huge fan & advocate of weight training. I don’t condone or believe in lifting teeny-tiny weights and expecting to see results or strength gains. I believe in working up until and a little past your comfort zone when it comes to lifting.
There’s no way for me to categorize this blog. If I had access to my computer 24/7, this blog would be a hodgepodge of a little bit of everything and not just my fitness and nutrition endeavors- but for now, that’s how it will remain.
I’ve found a lot of inspiration from reading other blogs and hope to inspire at least one person with this blog. I would love to change the way people view food and exercise and themselves.
I hope you stick around and enjoy the ride!
