Putting a smile on someone’s face as they see their body transform. What do you love about what you do? I love how TRX and Advocare nutritional products, in combination, can take a regular person who is struggling with their weight and give them the body they always wanted. Taking an athlete to the next level, whether that’s running faster or being stronger, is really satisfying too. My top fitness tip is… weight loss is simple, not easy! My fitness inspiration is… wanting to be a good example for my clients. What’s your biggest challenge in helping people get fit and healthy? We can have an amazing workout, but it can be ruined with one meal. Making sure nutrition is balanced is the toughest part of the job.
