Now your journey may not be like mine, but that’s the beauty of our journey’s. They are unique, just like you and I.
I have always been an athlete. Growing up I lived for competition. At age 3 I started dance and gymnastics, then started competing at age 8 until I was 14. In high school I decided to switch things up and try out for cheerleading. I fell in love with the drive and dedication I had to put in week after week leading up to competitions. I thrived under pressure and loved pushing myself to be the best. I received a scholarship for cheerleading to Lindenwood University, where I cheered for my first 2 years.
I stopped cheerleading after my sophomore year, which for the first time allowed me to show women that it is okay to be strong and empowered after being in an environment where being “skinny” and “small” meant you were superior for the sport. My fitness journey began four years ago at the end of high school, because I wanted to become skinnier. All my life all I wanted was to shrink myself. This led to over exercise and food restriction, which then led to Bulimia and then BED. It took me over 4 years to overcome that battle with myself. It wasn’t until I started embracing my curves and loving myself for who I was, that I found myself, and actually found my passion for fitness.
I switched from a business major to an exercise science major my sophomore year of college and ended up graduating from Lindenwood University with a B.S. in exercise science within 3.5 years.
I started personal training while in college and that’s when MBP Fitness evolved. I realized nothing makes me happier than changing my clients lives through fitness, and that’s what I wanted to pursue. Upon graduation I turned my focus to online coaching, where I have been able to help people BE MORE than who they were and become the person they always strived to be.
My goal isn’t to help you lose 10lbs in 3 weeks. My goal is to help YOU create a lifestyle where you are the healthiest, most confident, best version of yourself! Creating a balance between your everyday life and fitness is what will help you get results that last a lifetime, not a weekend or a couple of months.
