Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you?


Who am I?  I am a mom for 25 years, a wife for 18, a personal trainer for 5, a writer most of my life, and many things in between.  These are all that I AM but this is not the WHY I AM.  You see, it’s not about who we are but what we DO.  It’s time to understand your why and get out of the way of your own life.  Every person has the tools for a great life within themselves; however, it is our conditioned mindset that tells us all the reasons why we can’t succeed.  I believe you can.

Why take care of ourselves?  Why exercise?  Try to get sufficient sleep?  Drink our water, eat healthy foods, and find joy in our lives?  Why?  I believe every person has purpose and meaning in life, but many of us get lost in the everyday minute details and forget our “Why”. My mission is to help people rediscover their meaning and purpose, which leads to a life well lived. I spend an extensive amount of time reading and learning from empowerment writers and fitness industry leaders including, but not limited to: Vishen Lakhiani, Eckart Tolle, Gary Bishop, Marianne Williamson, Mike Boyle, Todd Durkin, Martin Rooney, and Grey Cook. They have tapped into the secrets of living life well.  I have embraced their teachings and am passionate about empowering lives through personal training, coaching, and am now extending that to you.

Will weight lifting make me bulky?


No! That is, not unless bulking up is one of your goals. Weight training is only one of the tools in your arsenal to help achieve a healthy body. Used effectively, weight training can help keep you toned and in top physical form. The trifecta of mind, body and soul will help you lead a healthy and happy life.

Why do i need to work on my mind?


Have you ever thought you couldn't do something and then failed at it when you tried? Negative self talk or doubting your own capabilities will not help propel you forward. When we are at peace and have a positive outlook, our capacity for success is unlimited! This capacity for success is applicable in all areas of our life; personal, professional and physical.
