“Progress over Perfection”
I strive to help busy Moms achieve a body they are comfortable and confident in and a fit lifestyle without compromising their families needs. I believe that progress is more important than perfection and that food and training can and SHOULD be fun. I hope we can share that mindset and hopefully my coaching will help you on your journey. The power of change is in your hands, but my goal is to help you find a balance of health and happiness along the way with my passion for living a fit and vibrant life.
Fitness has always been a part of my life. I swam competitively as a child, discovered weight training as a teen, played Ultimate Frisbee competitively for years. I have trained and competed in quite a few half marathons (one when I was 4 months pregnant), I have trained and competed in many triathlons (Half Ironman in 2008), and competed in my first figure competition when my youngest child was only 8 1/2 months old. And then competed again in 2015 and won 4th place.
I am a busy mom of two beautiful children so I understand the busy MOM schedule. I have first hand knowledge of what becoming a mom does to your mind, body, and spirit. I have been through the struggles with body image, confidence and frustration. But I have come out a winner and developed a system that has helped many other Moms find their health and confidence again. My goal is to help all moms find their inner Supermom!
