I am a health and fitness fanatic and have been for most of my life! I love the feeling after a great workout and pushing my body, but then also coming up with delicious and healthy recipes to refuel a hard working body. I am an exercise science major, as well as a group fitness instructor at my university and soon to be coordinator of the program in the fall. I teach spin, lifting, and yoga. Each class is so unique and special to me from the attendees to the actual workout. I believe our bodies are gifts and should be treated as such; an overall healthy and balanced lifestyle is so important to me. I believe in showing others that their bodies are to be loved and taken care of and that life is not about being perfect, but about being the best version of yourself you were created to be.
