What inspired to become a personal trainer/coach and what is your area of expertise?
My area of expertise is macro based nutritional coaching. I became a coach after losing 140lbs and realized so many people needed my help to do the same.
Do you prefer cardio or weight training and why?
Weight training....higher metabolism and less metabolic adaptations, enhances my curves, keeps weight off longer, allows for consumption of higher calories and keeps my body fat lower.
What is your favorite training move and why?
Deadlifts. I love building my glutes.
Do you meal prep and if so, what are your go-to meals?
Yes- I love making homemade chiptole bowls.
What’s your favorite go-to cheat meal?
BJ's rootbeer glazed wings
What gets you pumped to workout on the days you’re not feeling it?
When you’re not training yourself or others, what’s your favorite way to relax?
What is your go-to for post workout recovery?
BPI BCAAS + a massage
What’s your best fitness tip?
Don't neglect weight training when trying to drop weight and fat. People think cardio is the way to go and then lift after they get to their goal. It's best to lift throughout your entire journey. Your body composition will be better and your results will be faster.
What advice would you give to a newbie in the gym?
No one is watching; believe me
