Yeah, I can pick up three hundred pounds. Yeah, I’ve punched a girl. No, I can’t run a mile, but refer to the previous two sentences before you say something.
I’m a powerlifter, former boxer, and a personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. I’m also a freelance writer, a mom of two boys, and I hold a theatre degree. I’ve taught theatre in homeless shelters and juvenile facilities, and I’ve gone to prison to talk with men about a book I wrote, which has nothing at all to do with exercise.
So when I say I’m a personal trainer, please know that I’m not all about the burpees. My curiosity about the world has taken me to many places and put me in many different roles, and those experiences make me who I am, and influence how I talk to clients and write about exercise. I didn’t find my love of movement and exercise until I was in my mid-30s, and have lived a whole lot of life before and after.
Stay with me and you’ll see that I’m coming at exercise from somewhere other than your app, or the trainers who yell on TV. I know a lot about a lot of stuff. Plus I’m pretty strong, so you better listen.
