About Mama Strength
Seasoned Fitness Professional: I have been in the fitness industry for over 7 years working with women at Physique 57 in both group and individual settings. At Physique 57, I started working with pre/postnatal women in Dubai, and I have strengthened my skills in New York City over the last 4 years. I have several certifications and a diverse set of fitness experiences that have shaped my training and client workouts.

My Passion: Even before I became a Mom, I always had a love for working with pre/postnatal women. A woman’s body changes so much during pregnancy, and I was fascinated on how to keep my clients feeling safe and strong during their workouts. I’ve worked with dozens of pre/postnatal women with different goals, body types, and time. These experiences have helped me design effective and dynamic fitness programs to suit all desires and goals.
From my own experience, I have had my fair share of aches and pains while I was pregnant and even after! I wasn’t associating putting my ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) with what I know from the fitness world. Being pregnant and having a child is a workout in and of itself! After doing research, I gained a better understanding of what I needed to do. I felt better as a result, and that feeling of accomplishment fueled a desire to help other mamas in similar situations.
Personal Background: I started dancing at the age of 3 and was a ballerina for almost two decades. After graduating college from SUNY Purchase in NY, I found a love for teaching, where I began to teach dance to kids in New York. That love of teaching shifted to fitness at Physique 57, helping women find their inner-strength and achieve their goals.
Mama: I am a proud mama of two little girls! I intentionally put this qualification last, not because being a mother isn’t a critically important part of my life, but because it is not the sole thing that defines who I am.
I am dynamic, personable, engaging, and constantly looking for new ways to help women meet their true potential, in motherhood and beyond!
