Hello!!! I’m Natalie

 

I am focused on igniting confidence and self worth into every person I meet and train with.  Recognizing what our bodies are capable of goes beyond numbers and measurements.  Together we will not just get you to your fitness goal, but we will make you stronger and more beautiful inside and out.  

I grew up as a classically trained ballerina.  I loved dancing, but I hated my body, and my struggle with anxiety left me feeling constantly defeated.  No matter how hard I worked, I never felt good about myselfor my physical abilities, and spent my teenage years and 20’s struggling with my weight.  When I began working as a personal trainer, I realized I wasn't alone in this struggle.  Every day, I heard a new story of how negative body image held someone back from being their greatest self and leading their best life.

Through sharing my own battles with body image, I’ve found that I’m better able to serve others who are up against similar struggles.  I can help you change your body if that's what you're after, but more importantly, after participating in my programs, you’ll discover a renewed love and appreciation for your body, and a positive and empowered outlook on life.  

I specialize in distance runners, aerialists, and corrective exercise.  My athletic background as a marathoner and dancer have taught me to have a strong understanding of what these bodies specifically need to perform and remain healthy and uninjured under extreme physical requirements.  During peak season or in your off months, we will focus on programs that build stability, strength, and power. 

In 2017, I wrote and published my first book Every. Body. Beautiful. down-to-earth guide to appreciating your body, a series of actions you can take to feel great about yourself, and a collection of stories from my own decades long battle for positive body image.
