to HIIT 


12 workouts, science-based information all about high intensity interval training AND access to "how-to" workout video library













I'm an occupational therapist and personal trainer living in Manhattan, New York. I've been National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified personal trainer for 5 years. I've worked with clients of all ages with different goals, lifestyles, preferences and motivators that bring them my way to train. My feedback over the years has been that I am knowledgable, creative, patient and a butt-kicking trainer! Kettlebell training, high intensity interval training and bodybuilding are my favorite modalities of moving and training. My style of training is education and coaching. I live to educate my clients. My goal is to help you discover your body's strengths and weaknesses. I want to teach to you to empower you.  I believe that being introspective, working hard and thinking positively will reduce stress, build self-love and confidence. All essential components on your journey to establishing good habits and becoming consistent to build a strong body with a strong mind to match. 

Along with training...

I am a board certified and licensed Occupational Therapist. I currently work with children and in skilled nursing facilities in NYC. I received my masters from Stony Brook University in June 2018. In both my graduate and undergraduate studies (Psychology B.A., Wellness Management B.S. + Health Science Minor), I've taken extensive courses in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and exercise science. I have clinical experience working with people during rehabilitation of an injury, learning disabilities and mental illnesses. I am extremely passionate about the human body and the mind and I love to continue to learn everyday!
