BioAs a child I was extremely active. I swam competitively for 8 years and participated in Cheerleading and Color- guard throughout high school. When I started college my activity level dropped and I gained more than the average “freshman 15″. I found myself at 161lbs at the age of 20. I didn’t know how I got there or who the person staring at me in the mirror was. I knew that I was heading in the wrong direction and needed to make changes quickly. In 2004 I decided to join a local gym. I worked out hard for 6 months but I wasn’t getting any results. It wasn’t until I took my first nutrition class that I started becoming successful with my weight loss. At first I lost weight but it came back with a vengeance. I finally sought the assistance of a personal trainer and began a structured resistance program. The combination of diet, cardio and resistance helped me to keep my metabolism up and and maintain a healthy weight. After I shed the pounds I felt as though I had my life back. Friends and family took notice of my success and started asking for my help with their fitness goals. I became a personal trainer in February of 2008. I started out in a large corporate gym with only their own “in home” certification and have since earned four nationally accredited certifications as well as two Associates Degrees and a B.S. in progress through CSUDH online. I worked my way up to Fitness Manager and spent two years training clients as well as managing a team of personal trainers. In May of 2012 I decided I wanted to push my physical fitness to the next level. I used the tactics that I encourage my clients with and figured out a new goal for myself. I entered myself into the World Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation competition. I dropped 10lbs and 7% Bodyfat in 9 weeks. I competed in early July 2012 and took 2nd place! After coming back from competing in the WBFF my excitement for this new world of fitness could not be contained. This experience reignited my passion for fitness and made me realize that I had reached a personal limit in the corporate world. In November 2012 I decided to open FitFabBody Bootcamp and Personal Training. There is nothing better than being able to help my clients change their lives through fitness. Watching them persevere through adversity while becoming the person they want to be inspires me everyday! This is the most rewarding job and I am thankful for the opportunity to help others through their fitness journey.
