WE ALL START SOMEWHERE!!!!
As instructors, we hope to inspire our students and help them reach their fitness goals in a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere. We personally understand what it is like to take risks, try something new, & put yourself out there. Each of us have had our ups & downs, which is why we like to share our stories with all of our students. We look forward to hearing about your journey as well!
I have always been in Love with fitness. I loved going to the gym and taking all kinds of classes and working to create the best version of myself. My first pound class I was off beat and looked wild but I felt like I was in the band for life after that first class. I fell in love with Pound at first Strike. I’ve been teaching Pound for over a year now and I love feeling strong, empowered and rocking out with the BAND. Pound is a chance to workout and have a blast while burning calories and making new friends. The best feeling is when everyone strikes the ground together and the whole class feels that satisfaction of being a group and succeeding together. The second best feeling during class is your legs are burning but with all the fun you don’t feel the pain you drum and yell through it. I can’t wait to continue to introduce Pound to the Alba Family and ROCKOUT with everyone. Drum solos are always welcome so don’t be nervous to try it!
My love of fitness started early on the soccer field. Soccer was a fun, social event with fitness as a bonus. After my soccer days were over, I began running as a way of stress relief. Running became a new passion and hobby that led to multiple half-marathons. (I'm only half-crazy). While pursuing a career in nutrition and dietetics at Penn State, I was learning all the nutrition aspects of living a healthy lifestyle and wanted to pair that with personal fitness. I became a certified personal trainer in November of 2016. I like to teach high intensity interval classes that provide the most bang for your buck. Time is a hot commodity these days. My classes are great for all and provide a great workout in a short period of time.
I am so excited to bring my love of fitness to Alba Fitness!
