I got into fitness in high school as a cheerleader and swimmer. In both sports, the stronger you were, the better athlete you were. The strength of the human body for performance has always fascinated me.
My inspiration comes from my girls, Hannah and Neely. They are at the root of everything I do. Through my example, I want them to understand how to pursue their passions, be a good human, and work hard for what you want.
My favorite cheat meal is a good hamburger and fries. That's just a meal I never get sick of.
My favorite TV show is The Office, because that dry sense of humor is what I love.
To me, 'Never Settle' means that even though you may appreciate where you are today and the accomplishments of the past, your only easy day was yesterday. You have to continue to push your physical and mental limits every single day, because there is always more to give. Your journey is never finished. Complacency and stagnancy are death.
I am most proud of being a mom. This is not only the hardest role I have ever been blessed with, but the most rewarding too. Watching both my girls grow into who they were intended to be is and will always be my greatest achievement. I am also proud of being named US Professor of the Year Finalist in 2014 and 2015 and Legionnaire of the Year for 2017. Being named Elite Trainer in 2017 was also a huge accomplishment for me.
What keeps me going is a desire to never go back to who I used to be. Hitting rock bottom in every way is what pushes me through every struggle now. Those hard times were my greatest teachers and my biggest blessing.
Becoming a part of 1st Phorm has changed my life because it gave me hope in a time that felt hopeless. It gave me a community in a time when I was alone. It gave me a place to align myself with others who want more from life. It surrounded me with people who are better, stronger, and faster than I am, and in doing so, has pushed me to work harder than I would have alone. 1st Phorm gave me the opportunity to figure out where life was calling me and the courage to take the leap to pursue that path. It has brought the most amazing people into my life, and for that and the chance to help others every single day, is something I will be forever grateful for.
"Since I'm a busy mom who works out late at night, I need something to get me into the gym. MegaWatt V2 is one of my favorites because it gives me a swift kick in the butt to crush it with my workout!"
"Opti-Greens 50 has ended my lifetime battle with reflux and sinus/allergy issues! It has also helped tremendously with Neely's constipation!"
"Micro Factor is amazing because it has built the best foundation for my overall health!"
