BS - Public Health, ACE-CPT | Fitness Professional
Andersonville Personal Trainer
Sam discovered at an early age how to make fitness and healthy living an important part of her daily life through her love of running. She also discovered that working on strength and interval training ultimately made her a better runner and improved her fitness level. Sam graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Public Health. There, she continued to grow her knowledge and deepen her passion for wellness by learning the tools to provide others to make better lifestyle choices. After graduating, Sam wanted to focus more on fitness fundamentals by becoming an Andersonville personal trainer to spread this knowledge and love of fitness. Sam feels that personal training is a great hands-on approach that helps clients learn how to become more physically active but also to create their own paths towards a healthy lifestyle outside of their workouts. Sam is excited to be part of the Orange Shoe team.
