I am proud to be apart of the BIRTHFIT tribe through BIRTHFIT Houston and am excited to be able to offer personal training, consults and postpartum series to better help mamas in their pregnancy and postpartum journeys.
I grew up in Houston, played various sports growing up but focused mainly on competitive swimming and soccer. I found CrossFit after a few years of being in the Personal Training industry teaching various forms of fitness — barre class, spin class, pilates, ZUMBA. These are all great facets for working out but something was missing.
I fell in love with CrossFit in the beginning of 2012 and it just made sense. It helped to shift that mindset on looking a certain way to focusing more on WHAT MY BODY CAN DO, and life became a little less stressful and I started to find more joy in working out. CrossFit and BIRTHFIT have changed how I view fitness and living a happy, healthy lifestyle. I workout to make my overall life and well being better as well as strive to be a good role model. I try to relay these experiences through my coaching and interactions with others.
To make things better, my husband and I met while coaching at the same gym and married in the summer of 2016. We are a blended family with three boys, Jacob age 12, and Eli age 10. The most recent addition to our family is our one year old, Thomas.
One of the biggest joys I get is seeing a client accomplish something new and realizing how strong they are / can be. That combined with the smile and pure job on people’s faces = priceless. Reese Witherspoon said it best in Legally Blonde,
“ Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t”
