Fitness has always played a huge part in Sam's life. It’s something she grew up around and started implementing at a younger age. Sam played sports all her life and was introduced to weightlifting in high school through her brother. Sam and her mother began lifting together every day and it was something she really looked forward to. She loved seeing her body change and being able to share that experience with her mom. After awhile, Sam found CrossFit and started implementing that in her workouts. Here she learned the value of a workout community and furthered her love for working out. She has learned to listen to her body over the past few years and has started doing a wide variety of fitness. From traditional bodybuilding, powerlifting, or high intensity workouts, to yoga, hiking, or rock climbing, Sam loves being active in all forms!
Sam attended college at the University of Central Missouri. For the first year, she studied dietetics, but found she had a deeper interest in fitness. A reason Sam fell in love with working out was the feeling of success (and exhaustion) after a great workout. She wanted to impact people’s lives in this same way and help teach them what their bodies are capable of. Sam decided to change her degree to Corporate Fitness where she would learn about exercise science and marketing as well.
After graduation, Sam landed an amazing internship in Albuquerque, NM with the Institute of Community Wellness and Athletics. Here she learned even more about personal training, group training, and overall wellness of the body. She is so happy to have gone where her passion lies and is currently certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
"Starting my career with Elevated Fitness, I hope to create change in clients’ lives not only through improving body composition and increasing exercise performance, but to see them leave excited and proud of themselves every session! I’m eager to share my love and knowledge of fitness with others."
