I’m a dreamer, a personal trainer, a Lululemon ambassador, a Fleet Feet Nashville race team member a Believer, an savor every biter, a breathe life inner, a hopeful inspirer, a make you laugher, a singer, a writer…
I have been in the fitness business for over 16 years. My story is a funny one… I began teaching kickboxing and spinning while attending Baylor University. After graduating with a degree in theater, I moved to New York City to pursue acting, but five days after moving in, I walked into Equinox in midtown, and landed a job as a personal trainer. From then on, I was head over heels in love with the fitness business.
I went on to train at Equinox and eventually taught spinning, sculpting and other classes all over NYC as well as other cities across the country. While in New York, I taught at world class gyms such as Reebok/NY, Sports Club LA, New York Athletic Club, Equinox, Crunch and the Athletic and Swim club, among others. I also found a love in fitness management and became the the Program Director/Group Fitness Manager at the Athletic and Swim Club for over two years where I managed all of group fitness classes, instructors, and programs and also created and administrated the Athletic and Swim Triathlon Club.
In 2006, I had the opportunity to move to Nashville to pursue a career in music. While in Nashville, I have had the blessing to train at the award-winning Takes 2 Fitness and the acclaimed Barry’s Bootcamp both in Nashville and in LA as well as other gyms in the city. My heart is my personal training business… Where so many people have walked in and out of my little (french) doors and have hopefully had their life impacted and changed.
My focus changed more to music since moving to Nashville and I have been blessed to land songs with Rascal Flatts, Chris Young, Jonny Diaz and numerous indie and international artists. Although my focus changed, my deep-seeded love for the fitness industry, and I always wanted to remain rooted and involved in fitness. A couple of the fitness accolades since moving to Nashville have been… Nashville Lifestyle’s Magazine named my BBC class as one of the toughest instructors and workouts in Nashville, and I was honored with being voted one of the top 3 Nashville Personal Trainers in the Nashville Scene in 2015.
I believe that the fitness industry is the ONLY industry that is completely positive. I have seen so many lives changed through exercise and by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To have the opportunity to be a part of this impactful industry has truly been one of the most amazing and important things that I have done in my life thus far. I am currently working on expanding my business and brand – Endorphins Training – into a hopeful household name. 🙂
