What POWERS you?: Empowering women to take control of their health and fitness fuels me. I love the idea that strength is beauty. I hate the way the media crushed us down for so many years by saying that only skinny is beautiful. Beauty is having confidence in who you are and owning it. If I can motivate just one person a day to make a healthier choice, whether that may be taking a workout class or reaching for an Apple instead of a candy bar, I will feel gratified. Having the confidence to walk into a gym and know what to do is my goal for every woman who trains with me. I want them to feel like they do belong here, and I want them to come back. Take ownership of your wellbeing. Be proud of what your body looks like because of all the amazing things it can accomplish.
