Fitness Philosophy

Fitness is a lot simpler than most people think. You don’t have to squat 300+ lbs or be able to run a mile in under 5 minutes to be “healthy”. Fitness can be anything from strength training (my favorite!) or just walking for 30 minutes a few times a week. Any type of movement will be beneficial for your body, so just choose your favorite and go for it!

Background

I’m a 3rd-year Biological Sciences major who somehow ended up in California despite being born and raised in Massachusetts. Although I hope to pursue physical therapy in the future, I figured that personal training would allow me to help people while I work towards my degree. I’ve dabbled in various sports growing up (such as gymnastics, cross country, and track), but I found that my true passion lies in weight training – more specifically, powerlifting. I feel empowered when I deadlift more than double my bodyweight, and my confidence skyrockets whenever I hit a new personal record. I want to help YOU feel the same way, through whatever method of fitness you like!
