-Strength and Conditioning
I have been passionate about health and fitness since I was a young girl and have long been an avid runner and soccer player. In 2014 I obtained my personal trainer certification through American College of Sports Medicine and love helping other people achieve their fitness goals. I also enjoy music (singing and playing piano and violin), the outdoors, hiking, plants, dabbling in photography, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy a good challenge - especially when it comes to exercise!
-Pole, Silks, and Aerial Hoop -
Growing up, I always wanted to fly. When I moved to Utah for a job, I found a gym that gave me that feeling. I fell in love with the Aerial Arts from the minute I stepped up to the mats. My goal for you all is to find a form of fitness that you love, that inspires you, and motivates you to be the best version of yourself.
Through aerial fitness, I found a way to truly connect to my soul and I wish to open that door to others and to change the culture and stereotypes around this type of fitness.
