Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My fitness goals are to always work towards being the best version of myself, by always pushing my limits and continuously creating new goals so that I stay motivated. I want to continue to train and inspire other women by providing them fun and dynamic workouts that I love to do.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I will inspire women by leading a positive, balanced lifestyle, training hard and with a purpose, and eating to nourish and fuel my body. I want to inspire women to make fitness a lifestyle by focusing on doing things that make them feel good mentally, emotionally and physically, and not only focusing on aesthetics. I want women to learn to love the journey and not just the result and to not be scared to go after a goal that seems too far out of reach.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally; it comes from what you do consistently.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
My fitness lifestyle is shaped by my love for running, cycling and cross training. I come from a super sporty family who lives, sleeps and breathes fitness and since starting B Athletic with my sister, we are now able to share that passion with the world. I love being outdoors so most mornings I wake up at 4:30am to go and ride with my cycling club. Some days I may run after my ride or on days when I don’t ride, I wake up early to get on the road for a run. In the afternoons I teach barre-inspired workouts and get in my strength training sessions. I love spending my weekends in the cradle with my family running and cycling; taking my dogs for walks, or riding my horses.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
My passion for health and fitness and my love for guiding and inspiring my clients to be the best version of themselves is what motivated me to enter this competition. I want to be associated with brands that promote authenticity, positivity and living a healthy, fit lifestyle such as Biogen and Fitness magazine. I would love the opportunity to be able to inspire women to be fearless in their pursuit of reaching their fitness goals in a positive, authentic way.
