Tell us about your fitness journey. How did you come to Farmgirlfit?

I have always been athletic and active; I grew up playing sports and in my twenties I mostly ran and practiced yoga. Post-babies, I joined a few gyms but I didn’t find the community I was looking for until I walked into FGF! I was invited by a friend (Jessica Jasso) for Friendship Fridays in April of this year, and I was hooked! Weightlifting was new to me and I knew I had a lot to learn, and still do, but I immediately felt comfortable and supported in this new journey.

If you could tell your Farmgirlfit story in 100 words or fewer, how would it read?

Farmgirlfit has empowered me to take time for myself daily and know the worthiness of that time. It has opened up a community of strong women who encourage each other and celebrate each other’s victories. It’s somewhere I look forward to going to everyday!

What has been your greatest fitness/performance accomplishment so far?

My mile pace is under 9 minutes again and I recently Power Cleaned 100lbs! When I added the weight up, I was shocked I was in the triple digits!

What are your next health and fitness goals?

A half marathon, one strict pull-up, and to keep improving with lifting!

Who/what inspires you to be fit?

Progress really inspires me to keep on keepin’ on!

Favorite workout song?

Anything loud with a quick beat. πŸŽΆπŸ”Š

Favorite exercise at FGF is? Least favorite?

Favorites are plate pushes and slam balls. Least favorites are mountain climbers and lunges.

When the Grind is kicking my butt, I’m thinking…

Of how many rounds/reps/whatever I have left!

My favorite thing about Farmgirlfit is:

The community! The coaches, owners, and members are so supportive, encouraging, and fun!

How has the rest of your life been influenced/impacted by Farmgirlfit?

My quality of life has improved in all areas but especially for daily activities like picking my kids up, playing with them, and my post-babies’ body image and self-confidence have both improved so much!

When you're not pumping iron at FGF, what does the rest of your life look like?

I stay home with our two kids so that entails wrangling children and lots of cleaning. My husband and I also own a few businesses, so after the kids go to bed, I usually have a few hours in the office doing bookkeeping, managing the social media pages, and preparing content. Our current season of life is busy!

Words that inspire me?

Know better, do better.

My happy place is:

Sandy beach in Mexico or the ski slopes!

As a kid I dreamt I would grow up to be:

A teacher. πŸ‘©‍πŸ«πŸŽπŸ“šπŸ“

Guilty pleasure:

A good, local, craft beer. 🍻

Team I’m always rooting for:

Seahawks and ASU!

You might not know this about me:

In my pre-mom life, I was an adolescent substance abuse counselor and drug court treatment liaison, and I have a MA in Criminal Justice and Corrections Management.

Any advice for new members or your fellow farmgirls?

Meet yourself where you are and do better than yesterday. This journey is all about you, so walk through the door and focus on being the best you!
