“There is no perfect method, no perfect way. Everything works but it only works if you enjoy it. Whatever path you choose to journey into discovery, find what brings your joy, only then can fitness be sustainable and a lifetime enjoyment
When did you decide that you wanted to be a PT?
I needed something to honor myself, a productive way to self sooth and practice self love. I discovered this in fitness, one hour of practicing self maintenance is paramount to how we show up for ourselves and others. I wanted to gift this to others. Fitness can go beyond the physical metamorphosis and transcend into self love and care.
First thing you do when you wake up?
I try to visualize my day, categorically visualize what my will look and feel like. This affirms my intentions as I actively participate in projecting a great day despite how I wake up feeling or what the weather may look like. If I can mentally affirm that today will be a great day it truly transcends into how in engage in my day. There are times this may not work, I still allow myself grace and compassion to try my best to have a great day despite how I am feeling
What advice would you give someone just discovering fitness?
There is no perfect method, no perfect way. Everything works but it only works if you enjoy it. Whatever path you choose to journey into discovery, find what brings your joy, only then can fitness be sustainable and a lifetime enjoyment.
What does your pre/post-workout meal consist of?
I don’t have any specific go-to meals. I tend to not follow pre/post-workout meals. Instead, I just ensure that I’m eating adequately and hydrating enough throughout the day.
What is your training philosophy?
If you aren’t having fun, quit it. I believe everyone should find what they love. That can be yoga, pilates, strength training, running--whatever it is, do it for you. That’s the only way it can become sustainable.
What are you hoping people will get out of your rē•spin workouts?
The joy in moving, celebrating what our bodies can do. Experiencing what a gift it is to use our bodies to serve us not only physically but emotionally.
How do you feel you’ve rē•spun your life?
Stepping into my power, Covid has emboldened me with tenacity and self-determination. I no longer foster fear and self-doubt, I am leaping and taking chances.
