What inspired you to become a personal trainer and fitness coach?
I’ve always loved fitness and I’ve always had a fit lifestyle. When I was pregnant with my daughter I had complications and wasn’t able to keep up with my fit lifestyle. I was hospitalized and on bed rest for three months. During that time I was taking weekly steroid shots and my doctors kept telling me I had to eat more. Long story shot I gained so much weight I was 211 pounds. I was blessed with a beautiful daughter and left with all the weight. I worked my butt off to get back in shape, it was hard and stressful even with my fitness background. So I start thinking if I’m going through this I know other moms are battling with the weight left after motherhood. I decided to create IFittMom a fitness community for moms.
What is the best exercise for fast results?
That’s kind of a trick question, fast results are unrealistic in fitness. But I think running is a great exercise to get results.
How many hours a week would you suggest a person work out and do you have to work out to lose weight?
I would suggest 30 minutes a day at least three days a week to get results. No you don’t have to workout to lose weight, you’re diet is most important part to losing weight.

I work out 5 to 6 days a week and I recommend 3 to 4 days a week.
