I was born and raised in Ridgecrest, and I am currently, along with my husband, raising our 3 boys here!
My own personal fitness journey began shortly after my youngest son was born. I made a personal, and life changing choice, to become healthier by working out, and changing the way I ate. I instantly became hooked! Seeing my own transformation inspired me to become a personal trainer.
I am certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) since September of 2013. I am also a Fitness Nutrition Specialist and able to to teach clients how to interpret labels, select appropriate portion sizes, and eat healthy! In addition, I have a CES Certification with NASM (Corrective Exercise Specialist) which enables me to better understand, and correct muscle imbalances, injury, and limitation with each individual client.
When I'm not waking up before sunrise to train my kick ass dedicated clients, you will find me doing what I love best; being a mom. I am usually cheering on my boys in wrestling, baseball, and basketball, sitting through a PTA meeting, or volunteering in their classes. My family is a powerful force in why I do what I do, so that I can help guide them to live long, healthy lives, and create healthy habits that they will carry on into adulthood.
I am truly passionate about what I do, and I am blessed to have such an amazing "job". My clients inspire me in so many ways. Their dedication and perseverance is humbling.
I train a wide variety of clients, each with their own unique story, and goals. When you step foot in the door at HDF, you instantly feel safe, comfortable, and well, like family. I LOVE seeing my clients success, they success THEY earn, THEY commit to, and THEY see. It's really an amazing feeling when you see someone who couldn't complete 1 push-up, progress to 5, 10, even 20. The joy that I see when my clients have reached a milestone, or a new personal best gives me so much gratitude. I am incredibly blessed to have such an amazing "job". I truly, truly love what I do, I couldn't imagine a better career.
Fitness and health isn't magic. It doesn't happen overnight, and I'd be fooling you if I said it was "easy". It takes time, passion, even a few tears at times, but I promise you, it's SO worth it. I am looking forward to helping to guide you on this amazing, life changing journey you are about to embark on. Hold on tight... it's going to be an amazing ride, we will have some laughs along the way, I promise!
