Why is Fitness and Nutrition important to you?
Fitness and nutrition is important to me because I wasn’t always in shape or making the best health decisions. I’ve been overweight, I’ve been a drinker and a smoker and a fast food regular. Now that I prioritize my health I feel so much better both mentally and physically. Our bodies are an amazing thing and when you fuel it correctly and train you can accomplish awesome things. Since I changed my health habits I’ve ran 3 marathons, a Tough Mudder and competed in the bikini division of NANBF.
What is one unique thing about you?
I am relentlessly determined. Some may call it stubborn, but when I want to do something I push until I accomplish it. I literally submerge myself in it. For instance, I started running and 6 months later completed my first marathon. When I started lifting I competed in my first bodybuilding competition 8 months later and won Bikini Tall Open and Bikini Tall Novice.
Not fitness related but another fun fact is the first time I went in an airplane I jumped out! Don’t worry, it was planned — I was skydiving and I recommend it to an thrill seeker.

Box jumps are a basic quintessential plyometric workout that build explosive power, strength, and stability. However, people tend to use incorrect form that could cause some serious damage to your body. Once you nail the correct form, add box jumps to your workout to target your fast-twitch muscle fibers that will ultimately improve your lifts. If you are new to box jumps, start with a box no higher than knee height and work up to a higher box.
