What helped shaped your attitude about birth? My attitude was shaped about birth back when I was in college. I remember when I was in High School I always told my mom that when it came time for me to have a baby one day I would want all the pain killers, or would adopt kids because I thought labor was just too much. However, when I was in college I remember several instances with other women who shared their birth experiences with me, and it started changing my outlook on how I would want to give birth one day. They shared the good, bad and ugly and gave me resources to just look into what kind of birth I would want one day as a mom. It completely revolutionized my outlook on my body, on my marriage, and what I would want for my own children’s birth story.
Why did you become a personal trainer? Growing up, I was fed the lies of the fitness world. The lies that state there was only a certain way to do fitness to get the “perfect body.” Lies that if I didn’t run, or do a certain amount of cardio I would never look good in my bikini at the beach compared to my friends or family. I lived believing this was truth and fact in our world, until 2013 when I found what true fitness was really meant to be for me. I started lifting weights and moving my body in ways I never thoughts I could move, and loved every second. I learned that every person has to find their own passion for fitness and what drives them to continue to stay healthy.
That life changing moment in 2013 started my journey to share what I had learned. I became a trainer because I wanted to be able to teach to others what had changed my life. In sharing that with others, I love to know my clients well enough to know what they love about fitness and adapt their training programs so that they enjoy their exercise every day and continue leading a changed life.
What do you want most for your clients? Whether I am helping a woman prepare for childbirth or for a marathon I want her to know she is heard, she is loved, and she will be helped in whatever way I possibly can to guide her in her journey. I also want my clients to know that their bodies are capable, strong, and beautiful and my purpose is to help them understand that and encourage them in those truths.
