When I was a little girl, I aspired to be just about everything under the sun. Which, in a way, is what happened. In 2012, I graduated with a duel degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice with the intentions to go to law school, but God had another plan. For the past 4 years, I’ve been a preschool teacher, waitress, lacrosse official, and nanny while raising a beautiful little girl. As crazy as it sounds, all at the same time.
In October of 2015, I decided I needed to do something about my health. I hired a personal trainer, and I haven’t looked back. I changed my horrible eating habits and made working out a priority. Even with four jobs, I didn’t lose sight of my fitness goals. Read more about why I got started here.
While in pursuit of my personal goals, I found my new love: fitness. My transformation gave me the inspiration to help others. Which is when I began playing with the idea of becoming a personal trainer. In June, I decided to chase my dreams. I began working with clients to test the waters, and then in August, I began studying to become a Certified Personal Trainer. As of Monday, it’s official: I’m certified!
Over the past 6 months, I have worked with 14 clients to gain experience in this field and begin inspiring others while studying. Now that I’m certified, I can’t wait to help many more. I hope to use my blog as a means of inspiration and motivation along the way.
I’ve had a lot of jobs, all of which have been rewarding in their own way. However, pursuing my dreams of a career in personal training will be my biggest adventure and greatest reward. My passion for fitness has lit a fire under me, and I can’t wait to see where God leads me.
Which brings me to SimplyFit: my take on personal training. I have big dreams for this company, and I look forward to sharing more information with you soon.
I want to thank my family for being my biggest support system. My poor husband had to talk me off the ledge a few times when studying had me overwhelmed. I also want to thank all of my clients for believing in me and trusting me enough to hire me as their personal trainer. A big thanks to my own personal trainer who has been a huge role model and an amazing friend. Each of you have played a huge role in my success, and for that I will always be thankful.
