Athletic through most of her life, Tiffany taught swimming lessons, water aerobics, and played competitive soccer through her sophomore year of college (on nationally ranked Fresno City College’s team). After transferring to Humboldt State, she continued to teach swim lessons but was not making healthy lifestyle choices. She left her swim instructing job after graduation and became significantly less active. Within a few months, she had gained quite a bit of weight and felt pretty bad about herself.
On April 5, 2015, Tiffany made a decision to start exercising and eating better in order to lose weight. From April to December, she lost 50 pounds by counting calories and running and found that despite years of saying she hated running, running was actually a lot of fun.
Once she moved closer to a gym, Tiffany had so much fun doing regular strength training and pushing herself to become stronger. After some time, she realized she was happiest working out or helping her friends and family workout. In November 2016, she made the commitment to become a personal trainer and, in March 2017, Tiffany earned her American Council on Exercise (ACE) Personal Trainer Certification and has since pursued her goal in helping others get healthier, happier, and fitter.
