I have been involved in the fitness world for a majority of my life. What started as a long run with a dear friend has become a decade of expanding knowledge of the human body, and how it moves.
Over the last ten years, I have coached both individual and group fitness. My certifications include Group Fitness, PT, RRCA (running), TRX, NASM-Nutrition, and Prenatal Fitness. I have taught for boutique group fitness establishments Flywheel Sports and Orange Theory Fitness, designing and executing programs on stationary bikes, rowers, and treadmills. I started Keep the Pace Run Club for runners of all experiences wishing to run any distance. Simultaneously, I am a personal trainer, designing and coaching individuals to meet a wide variety of individual fitness goals.
Personally, I love pushing my own fitness limits. I completed my first marathon in college, and have since completed several, including World Marathon Majors in Chicago and New York. I also completed a 50-mile ultramarathon, and a half-Ironman triathlon. Currently, I participate in HYROX competitions, a global fitness race for every body, winning 2nd place in age group and 4th overall at the World HYROX Championships. I am currently chasing a marathon finishing time under 3:30.
I work out to find out what I am capable of, and that is the same philosophy and mindset I bring to coaching. I am incredibly passionate about inclusivity, and believe movement should be accessible to all bodies. I currently reside in NYC, but am originally from Walpole, MA!
