Have the ability to build rapport with our clients.

Always give 100%!
Making athletes better!
My family inspires me but also knowing that what we do at WST is a positive influence in someone’s life. When clients say they love coming to WST or they got onto the team they wanted or share how one of our trainers really made a difference to them, that always makes my day. When I’m having a rough day, I think about one of those times and it keeps me going.
Make good choices.
Mother’s Day Part 2. I pretty much get to do what I want (sleep in and go to the gym) and Mark cooks for ME!
Be flexible and ready to work hard. Some days it’s crazy in here, but it’s always fun.
1. “Boys of Summer” – Don Henley
2. “Bad” – U2
3. “Born To Run” – Bruce Springsteen.
This is a tough one. I like to talk so something people don’t know about me? I love touring houses (especially old ones) and I enjoy going to open houses just to be nosey.
Red wine and Skittles. I love Skittles but they really are terrible for you.
Exercise should be a lifestyle, not a way to lose 10 pounds. Do some physical activity everyday even if it’s only for 15 minutes. Also, females should not be afraid to lift heavy weight.

My upbringing, my family, my adversities, and knowing that every day I have an opportunity to be more than I was yesterday.
Any exercise that makes my shoulders and pecs look bigger.
Teaching the world that every day should be a holiday.

The ability to genuinely connect with our athletes at a level that goes beyond just training.
Goalkeeper Coach/Personal Trainer
I am inspired by individuals that accomplish impossible things, helping me believe in the impossible.
Wherever you are, be there.
Detaching and unplugging and going outside.
The best sessions are the ones that everyone brings energy to.

When you’re tired and think you’re done. Do one more.
The teamwork aspect of the staff – bouncing creative ideas off one another and everyone always being willing to help out.

My two children are the most inspiring things in my life. They are an unconscious reminder every day that every decision I make affects not only my life and future, but theirs as well. They make me want to be better, reach further, and aim higher.
Don’t be upset if things don’t go as planned…it’s just the beginning of a new plan.
Chasing the ice cream truck down the street so that my children stop crying. The end result is ice cream, and that IS the best part of the exercise!
Get to know our athletes and their parents. They are more than just clients. They each have their own goals, dreams, and desires that we want to help them reach. Don’t be afraid to ask them how they did at a game, or how they did on the geometry test that they were worried about.
This is so impossible…I’ve been around for a long time, you know! “Everlong” by Foo Fighters is a definite. “Today” by Smashing Pumpkins would also make the cut. I know a Nirvana song would absolutely be number 3, but I can’t possibly choose a favorite. I grew up in the middle of the 90s Grunge and Alternative Rock era.
I actually have never really played soccer. My mom signed me up for town rec in 1st or 2nd grade because all my friends signed up. I was the goal keeper. I stood in the goal area picking dandelions. Soccer just wasn’t for me.
I have seen every single episode of The Walking Dead. I’ve actually watched the entire series (9 seasons going strong) multiple times and met Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), Norman Reedus (Daryl) and Tom Payne (Jesus).
It’s not all physical, it’s mental too. You can train every day but if you don’t believe in yourself and have confidence, your performance on the field won’t be up to par with your athletic abilities and talents.
That’s easy! “My” WST kids. Those kids that come in every week, after a while they are mine too. I love hearing about and being able to share the happy moments in their lives. It doesn’t matter what it is. Maybe they got an A+ on their history final, are celebrating a victory against an undefeated team, getting their license, saved every ball from the net in a game, committed to a college, or made the Varsity team as a freshman. They bring so much pride to my life. I love being able to share the lives of so many amazing kids every day.
