Q & A
Q: Why did you become a personal trainer?
A: At one point I asked a personal trainer for a plan that accommodated my chronic condition and they told me they "didn't do that." I didn't want other people to feel like fitness was out of reach for them so I decided to get certified.
Q: What has been one of your favorite client experiences?
A: Hearing a client share they could tell their plan was personalized to their goals and the exercises were more fun because of it!
Q: What is your proudest physical achievement?
A: Growing in both strength and knowledge since I started my own fitness journey.
Q: Why do you love Orange Shoe?
A: It's the community and sense of openness. Orange Shoe is the place to be for anyone who's ever felt uncomfortable in a typical gym.
