Why do you teach/train?
CrossFit opened my eyes to my true athletic potential and I want to give that to others! Whether you’re training for longevity, birth, competition, I meet each athlete where they’re at and love helping them achieve their goal!
What classes do you normally teach / what is your training expertise?
I team GPP/Strength and Conditioning, BIRTHFIT Postpartum Series, and Strongman 101 all at DEUCE Gym in Venice
How have you adapted your business to still inspire people at home?
We’ve created an online program called DELTA BRAVO via DEUCE Gym that’s available online for anyone to purchase. How this is so adaptable is that you only need one pair of dumbbells and we make sure you’re getting a complete strength and conditioning program.
Are you currently offering virtual classes? If so, when and how can people join?
I am offering virtual one on one training but no group classes. If you’d like to be in a community feel, DELTA BRAVO is our version of an online community during and continuing after quarantine!
What advice would you give to other fitness professionals to get through these times?
My best advice is, take care of yourself before you take care of others. And if that looks like taking more rest days than you normally do, listen to that. Now is the time to connect with your intuition and move for pleasure not performance. This will rub off onto your clients and make your experience with them and their experience with you so much more enjoyable.
How can fitness professionals lift each other up right now?
Social media has been such a blessing lately and I think the best thing we can all do is support each other via social media and then purchasing programs, keeping your gym membership, purchasing a private session if you can, and just asking each other how we can best serve each other.
What is your favorite non-fitness outlet to cope with the current stress of the world?
I am lucky to live in sunny Los Angeles and I’ve been getting at least one hour in the sun every day.
How are you giving yourself #permissiontopause?
Being pregnant makes this pretty easy, ha! I am really listening to my body and not pressuring myself to push past what doesn’t align with my intuition.
