Fast Facts!

I'm ready!

When it comes to wedding fitness, I always say “the sooner you begin, the better.” That’s because you’ll have even more time to experience the benefits of focusing on your fitness and nutrition, and more time to reach your physical fitness goals. Many brides stress to lose weight right before the wedding, but if they start an effective program months in advance, they’re so much more likely to reach their fitness goals and feel great during the months leading up to their wedding.
It’s important to note that working out for a wedding isn’t only for those who want to lose weight. Working out has so many more benefits than just weight loss. It’s a key part of living a healthy lifestyle that can lead to longevity. What better way to start your happily ever after than focusing on how you can live a long, happy and healthy life together? It starts with our daily habits, including regular physical activity and eating nutritious meals.

why the time is now:

As women, we feel the pressure to look a certain way even if we aren't competing in pageants, and I know brides feel overwhelmed with reaching fitness goals for their wedding. I'm here to simplify everything for you and provide you with programs that will give you real results! I spend time customizing each client's program and don't create any cookie-cutter routines. I strive to create plans that fit your lifestyle so you can enjoy the process and stay consistent. I truly care about my client's success! I have experience with so many different workout programs, worked with celebrity trainers, and have been a bride myself. I know what really works to see results for your big day! 

which brings me to you:

As a former Miss Maryland Teen USA, there was so much pressure to stick to a ridiculously strict diet and intense exercise plan to be "skinny" enough to compete in pageants. As I competed for nationals, I felt the pressure big time! Incessant comparison, competition, and being under constant scrutiny led me to feel self-conscious and insecure. Plus, I really didn't want to just be skinny, I wanted to feel healthy, fit, and confident! I knew there had to be a better (and more enjoyable) way to approach health and fitness, so I started creating my own workout routines and practicing yoga regularly. I loved the results I saw when I committed to an enjoyable and sustainable fitness routine, and I quickly discovered my love for learning about fitness and nutrition.

why i do what i do:

Through years of experience with almost every type of fitness program you can think of. I, too, was tired of workout programs that did not live to their expectations. My goal is to provide you with the proper tools and fitness education so you can feel confident and love your fitness routine. Health and fitness are not just getting to your goal body. It is about your overall well-being. This includes your sleep patterns, nutrition habits, and mental health.

why was it created?

For the overwhelmed bride who just wants to look and feel her best, the supportive bridesmaid who wants to be there for her friend in the best way she can, and the mother of the bride, who is tired of starting and stopping workout programs because they don’t work.

who is it for?

My unique approach to every workout class you will take with me. I use it in my personal training sessions and the Bride Groups wedding workout program. The ST Method combines cardio and weight training for maximum health progression. I teach classic exercises and integrate them into your weekly plan so you work every muscle group. Not only do I focus on giving you the very best workouts, but I help you care for your mental and emotional health. You will feel perfectly balanced in every way!

Time for Q&A

Extra wedding cake... of course.

Best wedding after-party snack?

Maybe not a traditional celebrity, but I love Jasmine Star (and she knows it!) and I know she would have been the life of the party at my wedding!

Dream celebrity wedding guest?

Ask for things you really want to have or don’t yet have! My list included a quality knife set, cordless vacuum cleaner, wedding collage picture frame, CorningWare bakeware set, and small and large white plate sets (and these are all lovely gifts we received from friends and family!)

Top 5 wedding registry must-haves?

As a former pageant girl, I naturally loved trying on wedding dresses the most. And of course finding “the one”! :)

Favorite part of wedding planning?

I might be biased since it was my first dance song, but I LOVE “Stranger In the Night” by Frank Sinatra.

What’s your all-time favorite wedding song?

It’s true that you will KNOW when you’ve tried on that perfect dress for YOU. It’s so cliche, but you really just know when it’s the one.

Best advice for brides-to-be?

I'll see you in there!
