What I didn’t learn in college….

When I was heading into college I was so excited to learn about how the body works, how your metabolism works, and how to exercise with proper form and prevent injuries.  I was so determined to be the best trainer ever.  So you mean, “I can meet with people, show them how to exercise and […]

Aftermath

This past week was a very scary one for me and my family along with hundreds of thousands of Floridians.  Hurricane Irma made it’s way over to our state and caused major disruption in our lives.  Even though my husband prepared our house and the gym as much as he possibly can for a major […]
