Introducing Strong-Fit-Beautiful

Welcome to Strong-Fit-Beautiful!

For more than 10 years, fitness has been an incredibly important part of my life. I’ll admit that it wasn’t easy at first – I vividly remember those first couple of jogs around the track my junior year of college at Clemson University. I thought it was a miracle when I finished an entire two miles without walking … and didn’t die.

It almost seems like a lifetime ago. I joke that running was my “gateway drug” – once I discovered how good that runner’s high could feel, I found myself running almost every day. Things seemed to snowball from there: once I graduated from college, I joined my first “real” gym, and started lifting weights. And Pilates. And eventually kickboxing. Eventually, working out had become my true love.

Probably four years after I started my fitness journey, I was given an amazing opportunity, and began teaching Pilates and PiYo classes. Shortly thereafter, I began working with a personal trainer, and suddenly things started to really click for me: in the gym was really where I felt I could be my best self.

Within the last two years, I’ve added Spinning and Piloxing to my teaching¬†repertoire, and the sheer volume of health, fitness and nutrition books and articles I’ve consumed have only helped me to learn even more. Sharing my knowledge with others, whether it’s teaching a class, giving workout suggestions, or just answering questions, has become one of the most rewarding things in my life. It’s my passion. As a former group fitness manager of mine once told me, I’ve found my true calling in life.

Which bring us here today … to the beginning of Strong-Fit-Beautiful. My goal here is to share ideas, suggestions, and my thoughts on the world of fitness. Strong truly is the new skinny … and I have to say, strong is pretty sexy! I invite you to let me know what you want to see here, and how I can help you to not only commit yourself to a healthier life, but also to become stronger, fitter, and the best version of yourself.

So here’s to being strong, fit, and beautiful!
