Welcome to my little blog, Whole Foodie Fitness!

The title of my blog pretty much explains myself. I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, I love strength training, and I love food! I decided to write this blog to show how food & fitness pair so well together. I think there is a huge misconception in today’s society that to be fit you have to deprive yourself of your favorite foods & exercise like a maniac, but that is so not true! Of course you need to exercise & eat healthy to be healthy but it is all about balance & that is how I try to live my life.

A Little More About Myself…

I grew up in Sacramento California where I met my Derek. A few years back we moved to Idaho for a little bit to enjoy more of the outdoors.



While living there we had a daughter Bella & when she was about three months old we moved back to California so she could grow up closer to our family…

Having her is part of the way that I changed to way that I view being healthy. I used to be one of those girls that thought being healthy meant exercising (correct statement but I wasn’t exercising effectively) & eating small amounts of food without letting myself enjoy some of my favorites. I wasn’t starving myself or exercising 5 hours a day but I was still way off base. Then I had Bella & decided when it was time to take the baby weight off I had to do it right. I want to set a positive example for my daughter & I hope that she grows up knowing that it’s about being healthy, not “skinny.” I also had to make sure that I was still nourishing my body since I was nursing her until she was almost a year old.

It took a lot of learning and a lot of trial & error but I have finally reached a healthy balance between eating foods that I enjoy & achieving my fitness goals.

After achieving my goals & finding my happy place in the middle I decided I wanted to help others, that is why became a personal trainer. I absolutely LOVE my job! There are not a lot of people out there that can say that they teach others about their passion and make their clients feel great about themselves for a living.

Between having a great job and an even greater family I feel truly blessed. I don’t consider my life perfect but who’s is?

Thank you for stopping by!
