Let me share my story with you; we all come from different places, and I want you to know that my road was not an easy one either!

I went off to complete my undergraduate degree at Liberty University in the summer of 2008 loving life, thinking I knew it all about everything, as many of us did when we were in High School. It was not until I started classes that I started to realize, I was a little different than all of my friends I had made. My friends and I would go out for dinner and I would order a cheeseburger, French fries, a coke, and milkshake for dessert thinking nothing of it. Meanwhile, my friends were ordering healthier options like grilled chicken and fish, opting out of dessert. This got me thinking- Why were they not ordering the food that, to me, seemed the most appetizing? After realizing what kinds of health risks I was setting myself up for, with a family history of morbid obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension and liver disease among other things, I decided to take action.

While this was not an overnight journey it gave me the ability to be able to have a strong testimony and really related to my clients on a more personal level. I developed my compassion for others; wanting to help get out of the place I was once in, and reach their goals. Upon completion of my Bachelors in Health Promotion, I starting working as a Personal Trainer in 2012 and quickly moved through the health and wellness professional ladder working with larger corporate fitness companies in Northern Virginia on various levels. Soon after I became a Certified Health Education Specialist through the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing. From there I continued on to get several more certification some of which include a Certified Lifestyle coach two-time Nationally Certified Personal Trainer, Group Exercise evaluator, Spinning Instructor and American Heart Instructor. It was then that I realized my true passion in helping inspire others to reach their goals and how I could achieve this on a personal level, thus creating 3 Degree Fitness. In an effort to always bring the top knowledge and skills to our clients I recently completed my Masters in Public Health, Global Health, through Liberty University in December of 2016. Since 2012 I have been helping change lives 50 pounds lighter! It is my hope that you and or your employees are ready to take that leap of faith and jump start your journey to a healthier and happier you with me and my team today!
I started to help others on their personal journeys- 50 pounds lighter! Being able to relate to my clients and understanding how real the struggle can be aides me in my ability to help them stay on track. I know by working together, I can help you make the changes you and your body desire.

We can not wait to start our journey to a healthier and happier you!
