Athletic Leadership Experience:
I am an alumni of The University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign where I competed 4 years as an NCAA division I full scholarship gymnast. I managed 40+ hours a week of practice, competition and rehabilitation, while excelling academically in the Applied Health Sciences program. I started a “Get Up and Move” movement in 2010 for a duration of 3 years, which involved elementary school visits to teach the importance of fitness and health.
I was a 3 time National qualifier as a level 10 gymnast. Placing top 7 AA amongst the best gymnasts in the nation in 2008, I also placed top 3 in the nation on several individual events. I competed at the elite level of gymnastics receiving advanced coaching by US National Team coaches.
As former world class athlete I have the first-hand knowledge and expertise to help transform your body. I am an advanced personal trainer, fitness instructor, nutritional advisor and NASM Certified. I have experience in group fitness from working with one of the most known clubs around the globe, LA Fitness. I have been successful in providing divine programs to world class athletes and business professionals. These programs focus on conditioning and strength training, balance, flexibility, corrective exercise, and nutrition.
I was a 2007 American Ninja Warrior competitor. I learned through this experience how to implement core stability techniques into my client training which has helped reduce the risk of injury. Obstacle training has helped broaden my clientele being able to incorporate fun ways to get kids into health and fitness.
