I'm an adventurous introvert from Vancouver, Washington who lives on sleep + "me time." I'm a lover of lifting weights, dinosaurs, real talk and traveling with my husband. I am here to help you move better, lift more, bust the myths of the fitness industry, and inspire you to love the process.
Batching – get more done in less time for the same result? One of my first mentors, Marie Forleo, introduced me to this time saving, result making tactic. But it wasn’t until about a year ago that I implemented with max effort. Apply Batching and Enjoy Feeling Sane Again The schedule-winning tactic is known as […]
Does everyone need to squat? In short. No. I am one of the biggest advocates for functional movements and squat is by far my favorite one. BUT, not everyone needs to squat. It is ideal to be able to squat. It is a natural human movement and in large portions of the world, people spend […]
I like big glutes and I cannot lie. But seriously. A round, well shaped backside is not only visually appealing but can be useful in decreasing back pain and increasing strength and power in other lifts like the squat and deadlift. Banded Glute Exercises High reps are my favorite for all of these as a […]
Does having a certification make you a better trainer? Certification is a very broad word, covering a lot of possibilities. We must first lay out the fact that not all certifications are created equal. Certifications do not equal good coaching; they represent time put in, and knowledge gained. Even that may be generous. Letters behind a […]

“Do you prescribe what weights to use in this program?” This is one of the most common questions I get as a remote strength coach. The answer? No. I rarely prescribe specific weights; and definitely not for non personalized programs. That doesn’t mean I can’t help you determine what weights to be using. I’ve got […]
There’s a lot of talk these days about the suppression of women. This is undoubtedly a sensitive subject. And I’d be naive, maybe even ignorant, to think this post won’t ruffle some tail feathers. Fact of the matter is, I’ve got some thoughts on the subject and this is my blog. So here we are. […]
Tattoos are not for those who fear commitment or suffer from analysis paralysis. I should preface this somewhat “impulsive“ sounding title with the fact that I’ve had most of these tattoos drawn for 10 years. So why the week before we set off on our year of world travels? In short, it felt right. Kind […]
Working Harder + Smarter I grew up in a very hard working household; but it was not one of high or even middle class income. For me, working hard was something you did because it was expected, and it was a part of your character. We were proud to be hard workers. But working hard […]
