"It's a beautiful day to be alive." Whitney Simmons

After moving out-of-state for college, I found myself feeling lost. I grew up as a competitive gymnast for 11 years and after retiring from the sport at 18 I found myself without a hobby and passion. I struggled with body image, carried a lot of negativity around and was not in a healthy mental or physical state. After two years, I decided I no longer wanted to play victim and found something new to love... the gym.   

My personal mantra- It's a beautiful day to be alive.  

A person who inspires me- my dad.

My favourite meal- a hot dog at the Great American Ballpark on a cool summer night.

In my gym bag you will find… jump rope, barbell pad, protein bar and BCAA's.

On my rest day I… Rest! I tend to stay at home and relax. I take the time to get organised and mentally prepare for the coming week.  

My motivation comes from... wanting to live a long, happy and healthy life. I strive to wake up everyday and become better than my very best.
