A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
Thanks for visiting my site, I'm pumped you're here. This is typically the space where trainers write a lengthy novel detailing their accomplishments. But I'd like to keep this concise because I believe the focus should be on YOU. Here's my (short) story, I hope it resonates with you.
I'm a former collegiate athlete who grew up playing every sport. From the boys little league team, to basketball and lacrosse, I loved playing it all. Somewhere along the way I lost my love for athletics because I was too caught up in my own head comparing myself, and my body, to everyone else. I constantly doubted my abilities and loathed the way my body looked. I thought maybe if I tried every grueling workout and every diet in the book that I'd find the one that "worked" and I'd be happy. I even got to the point where I thought an eating disorder was the answer. When that didn't make me happy I thought not caring would be the answer. So I simply stopped caring and stopped being me. To no surprise that only made things worse. It was when I was at my lowest that I decided to join a triathlon team and work towards signing up for my first race. It was my first month into training that it finally clicked for me. I stopped going to the gym because I wanted to be smaller and started going because I wanted to feel stronger and I wanted to accomplish something bigger than how I looked. It turned out I became stronger in more areas than my body, I became stronger in my mind. I finally found my confidence in who I was and not who I thought I should be. And that is where I found my happiness.
So there you have it, I'm a regular person (just like you!) who finally found her way back to that young athlete who loved sports for the sake of movement and not for the outcome. Once I stopped worrying about the end goal and started loving the process, I realized moving your body can actually be enjoyable. There's never going to be a day when you wake up and say, "This is it! I've finally made it to my goal and I'm happy now". Fitness and health is a lifelong commitment and it should be fun. I want to help you find that happiness. I want to show you that you can love the journey and not just the outcomes.
