Motto: “Always be consistent and keep it rocking.”

Fun Facts: I don’t like cheese, I skipped the sixth grade, and was born on an Air Force Base in Minot, North Dakota. 

Fitness Start: It started with dance: jazz, tap, ballet, gymnastics when I was about 3. Then it was sports all through school before I got my degree and then I became a personal trainer in 2015.

Fitness Advice: Start from wherever your beginning is and progress. Fitness isn’t one-size-fits-all, so do what works for you.

Top Tips: 

Use your body at least 30 minutes a day. 

Set a goal and make what I call “daily deposits” to achieving that goal. 

Get your daily recommended water intake. 

Listen to your body; we all have different bodies that react to things differently. 

Nutrition: People assume that I have this immaculate hardcore diet, but I eat whatever sounds good — always in moderation. The only time that’s different is about four weeks out from a fitness competition, I’ll start to monitor my protein intake & macronutrients. I’ll cut out added sugars and just about any additives. My diet is really bland and basic when I’m trying to get to competition level, but nobody can eat like that 365 days a year. It’s best just to keep everything in moderation. 

Motivation: You won’t always be motivated, so you have to be disciplined and consistent. On my tough days I just tell myself that I don’t have to go lift a bunch of crazy weights, I’ll just go for a walk and stretch so I’ll do something.

Best Physical Tip: Challenge yourself. If it’s too easy, keep pushing. 

Best Mental Tip: Half the battle is getting to the gym or starting the workout. It’s all mental. 

Best Spiritual Tip: Unplug. Everything these days is digital. There’s always the phone trying to get your attention. I have to have “me” time; I have to unplug and just sit in silence for a few minutes in the morning.
