After being overweight my entire childhood, I reached obesity in college. My problem was that I loved food but didn't like the old-fashioned kind of mentality my teachers used in PE and sports. It was all push, push, push, with boring moves that my unconditioned body wasn't ready for. My mindset has always been, "If it's not fun, what's the point?" You may have your health, but you're not happy.
It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized fitness can be fun. For me, it was doing enjoyable activities and being with friends. Energizing music, group classes, fun moves, games, and challenges - these are things that appeal to me. True, it's not always fun and games. Sometimes you have to learn to like something to enjoy it.
I'm certified through ACE as a Personal Trainer, and I hold a variety of other certifications for group fitness classes. Given my history with weight etc, I have an intimate understanding of that lifestyle, and the difficulty people have getting healthy and making a change. My aim is to help everyone reach their goals, whatever they may be, and have as much fun as possible along the way.
