I am a certified health & fitness coach that loves God, my family and the clients that I’m blessed to train!
My fitness journey began 20 years ago after the birth of my beautiful middle daughter. Although I had been an athlete during high school, I knew pretty much nothing about health and fitness and frankly, didn’t care about anything in college except graduating and getting a job. You see, I was a long, long way from home; I’d come all the way from E. Africa. So I studied, ate a lot of fast food, studied some more and ate more. I think I “exercised” 4 times…TOTAL, in the 4-1/2 years it took me to graduate.
I met a guy (a really cute one) while I was in college and we got married right before my last semester. I had our first beautiful baby 2 years after we got married and 14 months after she was born, I had our 2nd beautiful daughter.
It was at that point that I suddenly realized I needed to get some weight off. I had a friend who was a trainer and I confided in her that I needed to lose 10 lbs but didn’t have time or money to join the gym. After all, I had two kids under the age of two!
She taught me how to get the weight off and how to eat healthy, delicious meals. It had to do with the style of workouts as well. I ended up losing 28 lbs! It took me at least 8 months, however, and I’m so glad it did, because I was able to create a new life style.
I became a trainer and have been a personal trainer and group instructor for over 18 years now. My ultimate goal is to pass on the tools that I learned not only in the beginning of my journey but also that I’ve learned along the way from my fitness education and experience.
Pillars Of My Life
A unqique program designed around your particular goals and current level of fitness.
Ever been told that in order to lose weight or lean out, you have to drink a shake you can barely get down or eat boiled chicken and steamed broccoli for the next 2 years (ok-slight exaggeration).
What would happen if you learned to eat in a way that leans you out but in a way you also enjoy? Whole foods that don’t require hours and hours of prep?
We’ll show you how!
How do every day people like you and I work out even when we don’t feel like it? How do I get off the couch even when I’m feeling depressed or anxious?
There’s a famous quote by John Stott: “If you sow a thought, you will reap an action. If you sown an action, you reap a habit. If you sow a habit, you reap character. If you sow character, you reap a destiny”.
Your thoughts will determine your success in every area of your life, including health and fitness. What are the tools you need to get started?
Most people I speak with mention accountability as one of the top two reasons they don’t work out. No one will know if they do or don’t get off that sofa. They feel that they need someone to at least get them started.
That’s why I’m here! We’ll work on it together.
