My Training Philosophy:

  • I focus on lifelong wellness. The goal of my programming is to help clients do the things they need to do, like to do and want to do for as long as possible. In college, I was fortunate enough to be an NCAA Division III volleyball player which also led to overtraining and overuse injuries. Over the years, I have learned how to train more efficiently and effectively to get results. I am excited to share my passion for fitness here at First & Main!.
