What brought you to DPT? -I had recently moved back to the area and was looking to find fitness motivation and a way to meet new people. I saw the Facebook ad for the six-week program and the rest is history!
How long have you been training with us? A year and two months
What do you do in the “real world?” (job, family, pets, etc) – I’m a Practice Manager of eleven departments at Dartmouth-Hitchcock and a dog mom to Gus.
What is one fun fact that most people don’t know about you? I’ve never broken a bone or had a cavity.
What is your favorite exercise and why? Slam balls and ropes – both great ways to get out aggression after a bad day!
What is your biggest gym achievement so far? When I started I was scared of basically everything, especially box jumps. I also had a knee injury, which hindered me a bit as well, so I could barely do a 6inch box jump. Last week I had a PR of 26″, so that was pretty awesome.
What inspires and motivates you? Seeing my progress over the last year. I appreciate how all the coaches at DPT have believed in me and pushed me to my potential. I am also incredibly thankful to all my gym-mates who never fail to make me laugh and encourage me every day.
What would you say to someone who is thinking about joining or who has just joined DPT? Make the gym a priority, set goals, and just do it!
