I grew up in central Illinois where I spent most of my childhood competing in dance and gymnastics. Throughout my teenage years I had ups and downs with my weight and self-esteem. I went through years of disordered eating until switching to a vegetarian diet. From time to time I still go through periods of bingeing or eating too little. I understand that ones relationship with food is sensitive, and I help my clients work through their own nutritional issues.
After graduating high school and moving to Los Angeles, I gained 30-40 pounds over the course of a year. This weight gain left me feeling very uncomfortable in my body, but instead of reverting back to my disordered eating, I got serious about my workouts. I trained myself and lost all the weight. However, as many of you know losing those extra pounds is only half the battle. Maintaining the weight loss is another obstacle. I have managed to maintain my weight, continue to gain muscle and get more confident in my body with each workout.
