{Your Story}

What inspired you to start a career in fitness? After I had my 3rd kid, I fell in a rut of eating too much and being too tired to workout. After I saw a picture of myself at a picnic I realized how far I’d let myself go. I had a gym membership but went hit or miss. So I got a personal trainer and started going to classes. Went to Adina’s spin class and loved it!! I lost 40 lbs in just a few months. I decided to ‘conquer’ running – I hated to run. And that turned into a great stress reliever and I felt like I had accomplished something big. I wanted to turn my experience into something I could help others with.

I loved the group fitness classes and Adina made such a big impact on me. So I got certified and started subbing a few classes and that turned into getting some of my own

What do you love about your job? I love the camaraderie of the people in class, hearing others success stories and helping them on their fitness journey.

What is your favorite workout to do on your own? Triathlons

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Listening to live music on a patio with a glass of wine 🙂 hanging with my kids and boyfriend, going to the beach, riding my bike.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone who is on a journey to lose

Don’t get bogged down on the day to day struggles. Each day starts new, and set small goals that will add up to your big end goal.
