I grew up playing a handful of sports, but my approach was less smooth and more like a bull in a China shop. I loved being active and fit, but one too many broken ankles took me out of organized sports and into the weight room. I developed a passion for health and fitness, and graduated college with a degree in Exercise Science. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA as well as a L1 Sport Performance Coach through USA Weightlifting. I love to challenge myself, and I strive to live an overall healthy lifestyle. I moved to Dallas in May of 2016, and began coaching at Social Mechanics shortly after. The SM community is so welcoming and encouraging – I couldn’t ask for a better gym family!
I love working on snatches. The snatch is such a technical lift that requires great form and a lot of practice. Injuries from my past have left me with limited range of motion and have made any type of squat or OLY lift difficult – I love the challenge that comes along with working on these lifts.
FAVORITE CHEAT MEAL
Chicken Lollipops as an appetizer, then the Shaken Beef Noodles for the main course – both from Chino at Trinity Groves. For dessert, a pint of Cookies and Cream Blue Bell.
WORDS TO LIVE BY
Those who say “I can” and those who say “I can’t” are both usually correct.
