At the age of 18 I struggled with a eating disorder, I went from weighing 145lb to 98lb. I was told on a daily basis that I was worthless and not good enough, I started to believe it. After losing all the weight, I knew that I needed to get myself into a healthy Lifestyle. A few of my friends were members at the Rochester Athletic club, after visiting the gym I quickly became a member and then a employee. I started as a personal trainer, but no one wanted to work with the skinny girl. At that moment I knew I needed to break free of the eating disorder and gain weight the healthy way, through lifting weights and eating the right foods. I decided I was going to compete in a body building show. My training was just a short 8 weeks, but I was able to gain 10lbs of healthy muscle! Going through the process and learning how to be disciplined was the best thing for me. After a few months I went from being a personal trainer to the clubs aerobics director! I worked for the company for about 7 years and then decided to go back to school to become a EMT. Fast forward a few years and you will see me still lifting weights and living the same healthy lifestyle. My husband and I are the proud owners of this gym and we love sharing our stories with new and potential members.
Motivation & Passion
As a passionate Certified coach and Personal Trainer, my role is to motivate, enable and make training a fun and rewarding experience. I love to see my clients achieve their personal health and fitness goals, through a tailored approach of one on one sessions and guided fitness classes. Life is an adventure, filled with continual improvement and we can achieve our goals – no matter how big or small! Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.
