Why do you love your chosen profession?

I love helping people of all skill levels progress in their fitness journey and improve their quality of life. I love that the journey never ends and there is always more to learn, try and achieve. It is an amazing process when I get to work with individuals and experience seeing them grow in their confidence in both body physical fitness and mental resilience. Exercise has proven to be an effective and beneficial choice that one can make to better themselves. As a fitness professional, it is rewarding to be able to provide my clients guidance, motivation and inspiration to commit to their health and stick with it to ultimately achieve their goals.
