Growing up, I was always the slowest one to finish a mile, and often the last to be picked during gym class. I grew up thinking that I hated exercise. It wasn’t until I started graduate school, and had regular access to group fitness classes that I realized it wasn’t that I hated exercise, but I hated the competitive environment that gym class forced upon me. When I was surrounded by energetic & enthusiastic instructors, in an atmosphere that felt more fun & friendly, rather than competitive, I loved it! I thrived off of the energy in the room, and in Fall 2014, I started on a journey to become one of those instructors I envied. I completed my primary group fitness certification for the first time in 2015, and have continued to learn more and more about fitness, and about joyful movement!
