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

I came to FGF because my sister was visiting for the summer and needed somewhere to go! She dragged me along and I quickly fell in love. My fitness level was very low when I joined. I had only worked out sporadically for the last few years and had NEVER done serious lifting. I felt weak. It was a very humbling start for me.

BUT, Farmgirlfit became a way for me to see what I was capable of. I have never felt ‘strong’ before. I do now! I have never worked out in an environment like this. It’s magical. We are all on each other’s team. I am constantly motivated by the amazing, strong women I work out with. The trainers have all been soooo patient with me because, let me tell ya, I knew nothing when I walked through their doors. They have given me drive and confidence like I’ve never had.

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

Either my box jumps or finally getting some unassisted pull-ups!

What are your next health and fitness goals?

Spartan races! I also hope to develop more of my lifting.

Favorite exercise at FGF is? Least favorite?

Favorite: Box Jumps Least Favorite: Rowing!

Favorite workout song?

‘Sabotage’ Beastie Boys

My favorite thing about Farmgirlfit is:

The community. We all genuinely love to see each other succeed. You don’t find that often!

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

My husband would tell you it has improved my mood a lot! My body and mind feel so much better. I have the energy and strength to do more.
