Fitness has completely changed my life for the better. I didn’t grow up playing sports or viewing myself as an athlete. It wasn’t until I went to college that I truly discovered how living a healthy, balanced, and active lifestyle can positively transform you in every capacity.

When I enrolled at the University of Oregon in 2011, I discovered the Student Recreation Center. I spent several years working as a group fitness instructor teaching indoor cycle classes and a variety of strength cardio classes. I went on to become the Graduate Assistant (GA) for Fitness and Wellness at the University of Arkansas for the University Recreation (UREC) Department in 2015.
Physical exercise is so much more than working out. Moving your body allows you to better understand yourself and your place in the world. Obtaining a new skill or lifting something you didn’t think you could allows you to believe that you are more capable of achieving things you once thought were impossible.
I believe it is my purpose to help others do the same. My goal is to help break down perceived barriers, and allow you to feel limitless inside and outside of the gym. Oh, and I’m a firm believer in having fun while we do it! Don’t WEIGHT to get started! (puns are more than acceptable during sessions).
