What is the most important thing you have learned during your time as a fitness instructor?

The importance of creating an experience not only a workout. Providing a mind-body-soul meaningful experience to make an impact not only in class but after! To empower class goers. Letting the lessons of building mental and physical strength through training translate to the rest of their day.

How does training in the Latus elevate your workout?

It makes me feel excited to get moving. For me it’s a whole experience! If I'm excited to move, I will perform at my best!

What advice would you give to someone going to their first Box Union class?

Bring your willing mindset, open heart and playful spirit. Be ready for a challenge and mind-body experience.

What inspires you to be active?

To feel good, healthy, confident and mentally strong.

Where do you get your playlist inspiration from?

Different cultures! I love having an international mix of music genres! Reggaeton, SOca, dance hall, hip hop etc...

"I absolutely love what I do, I can’t think of a better group fitness experience, impacting people mentally and physically!"

Favorite post-class snack?

Green protein smoothie.

When you aren't at the studio, what are some of your favorite things to do?

Going for a hike, laying out on the beach, rollerblading, reading a book, hanging with friends!

Favorite fitness accessory?

Egg weights.

What is your favorite style class to teach?

Boxing.

What's one thing in your routine that keeps life feeling normal?

Going to the beach.

What is your favorite training tip/mantra?

Don’t fight it, fight through it! In it to WIN it! Train with a attitude of a champion and a hustle of a underdog.
