HI THERE! I’M ZOE.
I help others build healthy habits that last a lifetime.
Before becoming a personal trainer, I worked a full time corporate job as a Buyer of Gift & Home products. I traveled a ton, worked long hours and woke up in the middle of the night in full on panic attacks. I was stressed, unfulfilled and had no idea where to turn.
In fact, I vividly remember the day when I hit rock bottom.
I was sitting on the couch, wrapped up in a blanket, sobbing after watching a few hours of crap tv. I felt empty and alone. I was stuck in a job hated, had no hobbies and had absolutely no idea what my passions were. I didn’t know where to turn or what to do next.
And that night, I had a stunning realization.
No one was going to come save me. I was going to have to do the hard, nitty-gritty work myself if I wanted to turn my life around.
From an outside perspective, this can be easy to judge. Of course I was going to have to do the work myself! But for some reason, for so many years, I had been phoning it in. I wanted my life to be easy. I wanted someone to swoop in and make everything alright.
And, obviously, it wasn’t working.
I made a promise to myself that night. I promised I would start doing the work to find out who I was. What my passions were. What made me tick. And I would do those things. I would simply start living moment to moment, and ask myself what feels right, and I would do that.
I got off the couch, I took a hot shower and brushed my teeth. I bought a few self-help books. I started looking for ways to improve my health and well-being.
That moment completely redefined my life.
I started cooking for myself and I began strength training (though I had no real clue what I was doing in the gym). Believe me, I made plenty of blunders along the way. After all, I was kind of just winging it.
By now you know where this rocky, wild journey led me: to a passion for fitness and for teaching others as much as I can about living healthier, happier lives. That’s what makes me tick. And I do it all because I have been on the other side – but you don’t need to do it all alone like I did.
I want to help make your workouts more enjoyable, show you that healthy eating doesn’t have to be so hard, and encourage you to try new habits that will mitigate life’s stressors. My goal as your trainer and coach is to teach you the stuff you need to know so you can eventually do it all without my help. And basically win at life.
I want to be a resource for you along your own journey to living a healthier, happier life. I’m here for you. I’m cheering you on.
You’ve got this.
