“Every day I walk in I am instantly in a better mindset. I love that there is no judgement here, only encouragement. I can fall flat on my back every time and they will always cheer me on!”

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

#BossyAuntTina of course. She practically forced Ashley and I to come try out this life changing gym. Naturally we thought she was crazy, but we did our first class and I was instantly hooked!

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

I’m obsessed to say the least. I practically count down the minutes to see the workout for the next day. FGF challenges me everyday and I continue to amaze myself at what my body is actually capable of. And I love to be sore? Tina and I think it means its working…

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

Deadlifts last week actually. I hit 270 which was 35lbs over my last PR? Not sure where that came from lol.

What are your next health and fitness goals?

To run the mile…and not consider hiding somewhere while everyone else runs.

Favorite workout song?

Don’t judge me but Flo-rida gets me pumped lol. Also, DJ Sav always killin’ it with remixes.

Favorite exercise at FGF is?

Cleans and Rowing surprisingly (don’t tell anyone).

Least favorite?

RUNNING! I cry a little every time I see any running in the workout.

When The GrindTM is kicking my butt, I’m thinking….

Gawd I’m a glutton for punishment.

My favorite thing about Farmgirlfit is:

This is my TEAM! I am inspired by the coaches, the girls next to me grinding every day, and the dedicated babes that cheer on their mamas while they bust their butt. There is nothing more inspiring than a group of strong women!

Do you have a funny Farmgirlfit story, or favorite memory?

Tina whining about anything. Usually that it’s too hot, or the fan isn’t on full speed, or someone took her spot under the fan.

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

I look at my health and fitness/exercise completely different now. I used to dread going to the gym because I didn’t have any motivation. I hated coming up with a workout and after about 15 minutes I left because I was bored and hungry. The girls at FGF are my motivation! Every day I walk in I am instantly in a better mindset. I love that there is no judgement here, only encouragement. I can fall flat on my back every time and they will always cheer me on!

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

I work a lot…The last two years I have been moving back and forth between CDA and California every 6 months for my job. My family is everything to me, so we decided to buy a house in Spokane and brave the cold! Sooo now I’m going to be busy playing Joanna Gaines with my fixer upper.

You might not know this about me:

I get so nervous before The Grind every day. Ask Mary! Let’s just skip the warm up and get this over with. (She thinks I’m nuts lol)

My happy place is:

Sandpoint, Idaho. It’s where my grandparents grew up and there is no place on earth that is more beautiful.

Words that inspire me?

TEAM! and “Your body can stand almost anything. It’s your mind you have to convince”

Guilty pleasure:

Cookie dough in a jar (I blame MARY!!!), coffee, and shopping…it’s kind of a problem.

I’m proud…

Of sticking with Farmgirlfit and becoming a better version of myself, even {especially?} when I’m going through my off days or weeks where you feel like you aren’t making any progress.

Team I’m always rooting for:


Any advice for new members or your fellow farmgirls?

Never miss a Monday! & Just move! Whatever your goals are here, big or small, just show up and move. There is no better group of girls than the ones that are here. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone because you will always have a team cheering you on!
