What keeps you motivated?

My clients' successes are mine! They uplift and encourage me in the same way as I do them. It's a tribe of like-minded women all sharing the love for wellness with a mantra to never settle.

Why do you love to sweat?

My boring day job is running my own law practice. Fitness helps me deal with all that pressure, to just work out all of the bad and inhale all of the good after a powerful training session. Fitness is not just about losing weight. That's a side effect of what I do! It's about inner health, the power and energy it gives me as a mom and the sense of community I feel after a good common goal has been achieved. It's like breathing to me.

What words do you live by?

Rest if you must, but never quit. It’s not about hitting a number on a scale. It’s about creating a vision for how you want your life to look.
