Madison Downtown and West Personal Training


I have been interested in all things fitness since I was a sophomore in high school. I tried everything from running to lifting to yoga. I decided to pursue fitness at UW Madison and started personal training in my second year in college. I have been personal training in University, Corporate, and Commercial settings for the last 3 years and now hold ACE and TRX certifications and a B.S. in Exercise Science.

Q & A

A: I loved the gym and working out and I wanted to be able to be able to do something bigger with that passion.

Q: What has been one of your favorite client experiences?

A: I had a couple train with me and one of them was a heart surgeon and one was a yoga instructor. It was super fun to be able to learn amazing stuff from them while also teaching them about fitness from a different approach!
