I was out of shape and in denial. I started my journey September 01, 2010 and I have never looked back. I won't ever look back. I remember picking up 5lb dumbbells and thinking to myself, "what the he** am I doing?!" That's when the body fat started to melt off and I have been hooked ever since. Everything I accomplished my first two years, including the training for my first figure competition, was accomplished at home. No trainer, no coach. It was one of the hardest journey's of my life but also the most rewarding. Those 5lbs were given to a client and I am now working out at the gym using 30+ dumbbells. :) I now own my own business as an online health and fitness coach (and a certified personal trainer and nutrition specilaist) where I provide customized workout and meal programs.

Why I Love it
I love how weight lifting shapes your body. I am obsessed with it. I also had to learn that eating clean is also very important. I still struggle at times, but when I put my mind to it (ie. figure competition), I can do anything I want.
