{Your Story}

What inspired you to start a career in fitness? I never thought I would become a fitness instructor. Growing up I only danced, I was not athletic or even liked to sweat besides when I was dancing or cheering in high school. In college I gained the “freshman 30” and knew I had to make a change. That is when I found dance fitness and never looked back. My love for dance fitness grew to an overall love of fitness and how it made me feel.

What do you love about your job? What I love about my full-time job is the opportunity to help people who are sick and need financial assistance get the benefits they need to sustain life after becoming disabled.
Teaching at LiveFIT is NOT a job, it is my hobby, my release from the normal every day stressors of this thing called life. I am so grateful Adina gave me the opportunity to join this amazing team!

What is your favorite workout to do on your own? I LOVE BeachBody workouts mostly because I prefer to not have to leave the house to workout. You would think I would dance at home but I would rather dance with my homies at the club ☺

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? John and I LOVE to try new restaurants and beer. If we are not at home relaxing we are out spending time with our friends and family and enjoying being newlyweds!

What one piece of advice would you give to someone who is on a journey to lose weight, but feeling discouraged? Do NOT let the scale define you! One thing to always remember in this journey is when you workout, if fueling your body right, you are losing fat and gaining lean muscle. Inches lost is SO MUCH MORE EXCITING than the number on the scale going down! Fat takes up more space than muscle, so if you lose a pound of fat, but gain a pound of lean muscle your weight stays the same, but you could LOOK like you have lost 5 pounds! That number on the scale can mess with your head. Keep trusting the process and results will happen!
