My Fitness Journey
My fitness journey started years ago while playing sports in high school and training in a gym through college. This is where my love of exercise began and since I’ve competed in figure competitions and endurance biking events, but it wasn’t until the pregnancy of my first baby that I realized how little women specific information there was out there.
This was when I realized what my passion is and what I wanted to do. I proceeded to renew my certification through the American Council of Exercise and began to dial in my niche by completing multiple secondary certifications to become a pregnancy and postpartum practitioner. As I delved deeper into women’s specific training I realized how important this information was for all populations. Posture, pelvic floor health and pressure management, and their connection to back pain, hernias, incontinence, etc. This spurred me to continue my studies with the Postural Restoration Institute and more.
I have boiled a lot of this information down to a few key principles:
- Posture matters
- Strength fixes most things
- Consistency is key
I work with clients in all stages of life and the importance of having the strength to perform activities of daily living cannot be stressed enough. This is for my mommas that are trying to stay strong through pregnancies, need help with postpartum care, or grandparents that want to be able to play with their grandkids.
I believe that using a combination of modalities is key. The importance of listening to my clients and working together enables us to accomplish whatever the goal may be!
