I first stepped into a gym in 2016, while I was attending an acting conservatory program in Virginia, receiving my BFA. In the competitive environment I was steeped in, I was always looking for ways to optimize my chances of succeeding in the entertainment industry. A healthy body seemed crucial. At first, I simply began building the habit of showing up consistently. After graduation, I had more energy to focus on fitness. My initial goal was aesthetics, but as time went by, I began to understand the incredible value in resistance training for every body type, regardless of goals. I am determined to de-stigmatize resistance training as a “bodybuilders sport” and share the life-changing benefits with every walk of life.

Body Positivity, to me, means loving one’s body for it’s amazing and unique capabilities, rather than determining it’s value based on appearance.
