A country kid who grew up playing outside with the neighbors is my grassroots beginning to being active and loving to be with people. My childhood consisted of any game, swimming, summer rec sports, basketball open gyms, and my favorite class being PE. I went to UW-Platteville for two years not know what I wanted to do (my High school PE teacher told me I wasn't smart enough to be a PE teacher, so that's was my college mindset), so I took all the gen eds, tried a few criminal justice classes, until one summer I was working basketball camps and a friend said why don't you go for teaching. I went back to the Fall semester and declared my major. College was an awesome experience once I found teaching and had awesome classmates and teachers. I also made the UWP Women's Basketball team my junior year after not playing my freshman and sophomore years.<br /> After college, I got my first job at River Ridge CUSD #210 teaching middle/high school Physical Education. I taught and coached for eight years before I felt that I needed a change. <br /> This is when I resigned spent the summer mulling and finally decided to start High Vibe as Outdoor Bootcamps in multiple cities. <br /> These experiences led me to believe that everyone is capable and that people have a ton of influence on a person.
The feeling of comfort. After eight years of teaching and a steady relationship, I weighed more than I should. I let the days' stress, long commutes to work and home, and being lazy be my excuses for the lack of self-care.<br /> After leaving teaching, I knew I had to make a change. I joined a ten-week transformation challenge that was kickboxing, resistance band, healthy eating, six days a week. I had great results, and this was the boost I needed to get myself back on track. <br /> I know it's easy to get busy, make excuses, and feel like you're too far gone, yet I know that you have to take action to get the motivation you have. Motivation doesn't just appear and then you feel like working out. You have to get up and workout, start eating better and see the results start to slowly happen, and then you will have the motivation and habits for a healthier lifestyle. <br /> Consistency, Sustainability, and having fun are keys components in the fitness journey.
My purpose for coaching is to uplift, teach, and connect people. <br /> We get caught in the rat race, and we fall asleep in our own lives versus waking up, taking action, and living an intentional life that we choose.<br /> To be successful, you have to learn, put in the work, and do it in a way that won't leave you crashing and burning at the end.<br /> Life isn't all our nothing, and Fitness shouldn't be either. When you take the fun out of fitness, it won't end well.<br /> We work together to get you working out, keep you accountable, meet new people, eat better, have an empowered mindset, laugh, have fun, and keep coming back.
