About me: I was born and raised in Syracuse, NY and headed south after college to flee from the snow. Earlier in life, my relationship with exercise was not always great, but since I fell in love with [solidcore] in 2019 I haven’t looked back. [solidcore] is the first workout I’ve done where I’ve been inspired to tap into my mental strength instead of just being there to burn calories. In a world where disordered eating and diet culture run rampant, this type of approach was a welcome change of pace. In my classes, I’ll challenge you to push yourself and also to thank yourself for the hard work you do. You’ll hear a mix of pop punk, EDM, rock, 00s throwbacks, and bad puns.

Music I love right now: A mix of EDM, pop punk, and throwbacks.

Guilty pleasure: Bravo TV & buying too many pairs of black leggings

Superpower: Resilience

Zodiac Sign: Taurus

Favorite move to give you the shakes: Seated Low Row
