Why did you decide to work in the fitness industry?

Being active in sports at a young age and continuing to make exercise a part of my lifestyle made me very interested in learning more about how exercise can be beneficial for everyone. I started in group exercise teaching Zumba and after seeing the enthusiasm and energy from the participants, I was addicted! I branched out to other group exercise classes such as kickboxing, cycling, Pilates, and water aerobics and decided this was my calling. During my undergraduate and my internship, I learned all about fitness testing and personal training for functionality, maximizing workouts, and how to effectively and efficiently meet individual's goals. Seeing many successes in my clients and my own personal goals has made me very passionate about this field and drove me to go on for my Masters in Exercise Physiology.
