I am a certified and accredited personal trainer based in Sonoma & Marin counties. I specialize in habit change, weight loss, corrective exercise and nutrition coaching.
I have been a personal trainer since 2012. I first began my personal training career after discovering an incredible program at the Santa Rosa Junior College. During my first semester of their Fitness, Nutrition & Health certificate I knew personal training was the career path I was meant to do and haven't looked back since. It wasn't until 2019 that I decided to start my own mobile training business and it truly is a dream come true.
My background in fitness started when I watched the '96 women's gymnastics Olympic team and was so inspired! For 10 years I did competitive gymnastics and eventually became a national champion. 10 years after starting my gymnastics career I left the sport and went on to try dance, tennis, and swimming. That same year I also discovered the gym and found myself so intrigued by the facility I had spent hours there (when I was 14). I began teaching myself how to workout (with shoes on! I couldn't believe people did "conditioning" without bare feet!) I had so much spare time without going to gymnastics practice that the gym soon replaced my activity. Personal training was a natural progression for me.
If you ask any of my clients about me, they'd say I am passionate, knowledgeable about the body, and aim at making fitness fun.
The best part of my job is when my clients tell me their self confidence has improved! This is what I call a "side effect" of a proper relationship with health and fitness. I enjoy helping others with being able walk up the stairs without getting winded, with being able to grab the golf ball from the ground without pain, and with creating a positive self image.
