2018 was a year of discovering what makes me feel healthiest. With four kids in tow, I had been saying “Kids are my cardio” for over a decade, and that excuse just wasn’t cutting it anymore. I felt weak and tired ALL the time, so I had to make real changes to my diet and exercise. I have also been a self-proclaimed “city girl” all my life. This past year I finally admitted my love and need for nature to be happy! How lucky are we to live in Austin, and get the best of both worlds?
I’m just gonna say it: New Year, No Pressure to be a New You, mommas! But maybe you want to challenge yourself to starting running this year, eat healthier, feel stronger, spend more time outdoors. Perhaps you’d like to invite a personal trainer into your journey to give you the push and accountability you need.
Whether you’re looking for that trainer, tools for healthier eating, outdoor spaces, or a studio with childcare on site you’ll find it here!
“My mission is to help individuals love themselves better.”

HIT THE TRAILS
Here is a go-to list of places close to home to hike, run, bike, and explore. Let the kids run off some energy in one of these parks or preserves. When my family gets outside the walls of our home the serotonin levels go up and conflict goes down! When I spend time in nature alone, I come home filled up and ready to nurture my family. So I’ll see you on the trails, ladies!
