Hi, I’m Megan! A Certified Personal Trainer through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) with a goal to help others feel confident and strong.
I’ve enjoyed many different types of fitness throughout my life. In past years, my go-to exercise was running with very little weight lifting inconsistently thrown in. Running was a fantastic reliever of stress for me for a long time, but eventually I didn’t need it in the same way. I wanted to feel strong in a different way. I remember seeing others in the gym using barbells, lifting heavy dumbbells, crushing chin-ups, etc. and I wondered if that could be me. I’ve always been small and at that point had never viewed myself as physically strong. I felt intimidated to enter the “barbell” area weight room and was afraid of looking clueless feeling really overwhelmed in a male- dominated area.
With the help of others, watching countless video demos, doing the reading, and being patient, and consistent I learned how to lift. Lifting challenges me in a different way than running ever did and it has changed the way I see myself. I see the changes in my body that I’ve always wanted and, equally important, positive changes in the way I think and feeling confident.
I would love to share my knowledge and help others realize all that they’re capable of through strength.
