My personal training journey began ten years ago, when I first began to understand the benefits of fitness. I had injured myself, and was told that I shouldn’t be performing any intense exercises. Doctors kept telling me that the pain I was feeling would forever be a part of my life. I refused to believe this. I wasn’t going to be slowed down by my injuries. My goal was to find a way to make my body be able to do the exact feats that the doctors claimed I could never do again. I discovered fitness as a source for a cure. By working on my health and improving my lifestyle, I reached limits that I didn't think were possible. Personal training helps me share this knowledge to others and show them how to be the best version of themselves.
I’ve helped many different clients of all backgrounds achieve their goals. This allowed them to witness changes that they didn't think were possible.
Redefine Fitness is my answer to the fitness question. It's not about having the biggest muscles or being the fastest runner, rather it is about helping you redefine yourself into the best version of yourself!

I began my fitness journey several years ago... I thought the way to be "healthy" was to starve myself and do hours of cardio every week, like all the magazines said. It left me feeling very restricted, dreading the gym, and worn down. It felt wrong to me, so I began doing my own research into health and fitness. By doing so, I realized that starvation and endless cardio weren't the answer- nourishing your body, incorporating strength training, and keeping workouts fun were the way to go!
Now, as a Personal Trainer, I don't see fitness as a chore but as a lifestyle. I love sharing healthy recipes, strength training (especially lower body!), and helping clients find a balance by both looking forward to their workouts and seeing results!
As a Registered Nurse, I am always updating myself on science- and evidence-based research in regards to health and fitness and incorporating it into training. I also have an advanced knowledge and understanding of the aging population and those with medical issues. I love being able to work in both areas of health and bridge these two passions together.
Whether you want to gain muscle, lose fat, target a particular muscle group, or gain confidence, I'd be happy to tailor a plan for you as an individual.
When I'm not in the gym, I like to keep an active lifestyle by hiking, kayaking, participating in races (anything from 5Ks to Obstacle Races to Half Marathons).
