While living in the back woods of Northern Maine, I discovered how difficult it was to perform daily functions without a base of fitness and proper lifting mechanics. Cutting and stacking eight cords of firewood for winter, I found myself with debilitating back soreness and went to bed exhausted each night from my lack of physical conditioning. Ready to make a change, my husband and I taught ourselves Powerlifting with a set of dumbbells and from that point on lifting grew into a passionate endeavor.
Since entering the coaching field, I have focused mainly on helping individuals develop self-empowerment and mental strength through the process of gaining physical strength. I love watching how people first approach a heavy barbell. Are they timid and nervous or are they fierce and aggressive? Over months of working with a person, this often changes and their approach of the barbell begins to mirror their approach to their own life.
As a strength coach, I place an emphasis on proper technique along with mobility to make sure you not only get strong, but also maintain good range of motion and flexibility. My concern is helping you find longevity in your exercise so that you can continue being active well into the winter years of your life.
My approach to nutrition focuses on educating you about how to structure your meals to fuel you for an active lifestyle and to help you develop a lean and strong physique. My highest nutrition philosophy influences include the latest research into the healing benefits of a Keto lifestyle along with the principles of the Weston A. Price foundation which promotes a diet devoid of any nutrient deficiencies. I want to educate you on the how and why so that you can become the MASTER OF YOUR OWN BODY.
