WHAT does being /BŌLD/ mean to you?

Being Bold means living your life to the fullest regardless of fear or reservation. It means not letting worries of what may happen stop you from experiencing all that life has to offer. Whether it be where you go, who you are in relationship with, or what you choose to do with your life, BE BOLD! Don't let fear stop you from living the most full version of your life as the most full version of you. 

What is your favorite Megaformer move?

I LOVE Cobra, anywhere on the machine. This move targets your abs and triceps in such an amazing way. Plus, it makes you feel so strong. It's one of those moves that most people don't get on their first attempt, which makes that moment when you get it all the more exciting. 

If could have any super power what would it be?

Definitely the ability to fly. I love to travel, and the one thing that stops me from doing that is how much a plane ticket costs! If I didn't have to worry about that, I would be in a new country every week!

WHAT DOES BEING /BŌLD/ MEAN TO YOU?

Being BOLD means being confident and courageous!

What is your favorite Megaformer move?

My favorite Megaformer move is Back Lunge. You have the stability of having one foot on the floor and the challenge of being at the back of the machine. It's a move that is difficult and advanced but accessible to any client. I love any of the lunges because they are so effective, but this one really gets your muscles shaking!

What is your favorite junk food?

My favorite junk food is french fries dipped in a chocolate milk shake from In-N-Out!

WHAT DOES BEING /BŌLD/ MEAN TO YOU?

Being BOLD means being yourself especially when there's pressure to conform. Stepping forward when you know you should but can't quite see the way forward clearly. Laughing out loud when something is funny and making up songs about life in the moment (aka: "life opera"). 

What is your favorite Megaformer move?

My favorite Megaformer move is the, Mega Donkey Kick. I love the name of this move. It cracks me up and pretty much describes, in its name, how the move is performed.

IF YOU COULD BE AN ANIMAL WHAT WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?

I would choose to be a Peregrin falcon because I have always wanted to fly and a falcon can also protect itself.


WHAT DOES BEING /BŌLD/ MEAN TO YOU?

Being BOLD means being brave, offering the world your true authentic self. For me it means to be strong instead of seeking out skinny, daring to be different from the pack and proud to be the one and only me.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEGAFORMER MOVE?

Plank to Pike, hands down. This move will get into every inch of your body as you hold a plank and work your way up to pike. My core will be on fire before the minute is up. 

What is your dream vacation destintation?

Africa! I'd love to be able to see some of my favorite animals in their natural habitats and also be able to spread goodwill by building homes or feeding the hungry.

WHAT DOES BEING /BŌLD/ MEAN TO YOU?

Strength, confidence and a willingness to get comfortable being uncomfortable. This is what BOLD means to me! It’s the moments that push me outside our comfort zone that I see how much stronger mentally and physically I am becoming. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEGAFORMER MOVE?

My favorite move on the Megaformer is anything ab focused, but since I have to choose, I would say Mermaid Crunch because I can target my obliques in ways I never thought possible… I guess you could say… I like the burn?

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

I’m very thankful for where I lived since I grew up in the Bay Area but I think I would move to London because of how eclectic the city as well as the incredible food scene! Having afternoon tea wouldn’t be so bad either!

WHAT DOES BEING /BŌLD/ MEAN TO YOU?

Being BOLD means not waiting around for the perfect moment to be created in order to do that that one activity, travel to that one place, or complete that one workout. It means making right now your own version of perfect in order to reach for your goals.  

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEGAFORMER MOVE?

Super Crunch is my favorite move because really targets your entire core without straining the elbows or wrists. There's so many variations that you can do with this move, so it continues to challenge me every single time! 

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Wine tasting!

WHAT DOES BEING /BŌLD/ MEAN TO YOU?

Being BOLD means being strong and confident.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEGAFORMER MOVE?

This is a tough one to answer because every move is awesome. If I had to pick one, it would be plank to pike. You get all the benefits of using your core but it also works the arms (with shoulder mobility) and engaging the muscles in your legs.

What do you love most about yourself?

Believe it or not, getting over the fear of public speaking. I thought to myself, “how to I break free from being scared to speak publicly?” Since I love all things fitness…..being able to educate students about the great benefits of self care and helping them with their fitness goals, why not? Since I started teaching in 2011, it has really helped shape the person I am today. I definitely owe it to all the studio owners who gave me a chance to shine.

Being BOLD means pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone to be the best you that you can be. It means dedication, passion, and vowing to never give up.

Giant Reverse Plank to Pike. It's a difficult but incredible ab-shredding, total body move that makes me feel like I can conquer the world.

If you could trade lives with anyone for a day who would it be and why?

I would trade lives with Emily Harrington, She's a world-renowned climber from Lake Tahoe and spends her days climbing some of the hardest routes around the world, including Mount Everest. She's a total inspiration.
