So here is the back story and beginning of living out all my dreams and achieving my long term goals....
It all started back in 1999, when I moved to southern California and walked into Max Muscle, the Oceanside location, and decided that the 19 year old body I was living in suddenly reflected a college student who lived off of dorm food and bad habits was not who I ever wanted to be and that I had to change the pattern quickly. So I hired a trainer, loaded up on the recommended suppliments - glutamine, l-carnitine, pro BCAAs, protein powder, omegas and vitamins- (which since never taking vitamins even, thought that I was so cool now that I had a small Max Muscle store now living on my dresser), and learned how to really love running and lifting weights.
I had also signed up for that years Max formation, back when I wasn't an internet user and the contest was about sending in your photos, journal, and getting a score sheet back in the mail from Sean Greene and a few other judges.
It was a great year of learning and change, but then decided it was time to reach new goals. So I was then blessed to travel and go to school oversees and 3 years later, left Hawaii at my highest weight ever... I grew spiritually on that journey and also grew alot physically too! Ha ha! I have a passion for fitness, so no matter what the scale said I have always worked out, which I know probably saved me from coming home even heavier. So then moving back to my home state of Oregon, I knew that I had alot of work to do... I didn't know how to lose then maintain a healthy weight. I started working out at a gym with a couple really motivating ladies and started slowly losing the extra weight and eventually felt my "normal" self. But thats not even the beginning of reaching my goals....
Then I married, became a full time Makeup Artist and three years flew by! I wrote a journal entry in 2006 about where I wanted to be in five years. I wanted to have two children, be a personal trainer, do a fitness competition, be an athletic example, run a half marathon.... and suddenly this year after having my two babies, I finally started making the right choices and commited to reaching these goals (which I wrote to accomplish by December 2011). So I am on this path, and I know this life is about loving others and being challenged to continually grow stronger physically and spiritually so that we can all benefit eachothers lives. I am doing this too, so that I can help moms (and non-moms :) ) find optimal health and train others to live lives that will benefit the communities around them. These years to come are going to be so exciting and I am thankful to God for constantly correcting me and turning me back onto the right path for me... personal training!!
I am now having a blast helping people improve their lives through the different health programs I offer throughout the area, including all of Clackamas county and in Hillsboro at I-Physique Gym. I live in Oregon City and currently train out of the new gym i-physique in Hillsboro, and I am also available to train in private clients homes in the portland/metro area, as well as run boot camp classes three mornings per week in my Oregon City neighborhood, and lead a free Fit for Excellence jogging club.
I would love to take my passion, find what works best for your lifestyle, and get you on your own journey of accomplishing things beyond your dreams too!
