Why Fitsom?

While in massage therapy school I interned at fitsom and became inspired by their program and vision to balance the body through strengthening the mind and body connections. Fitsom not only provided me an unparalleled experience as a massage therapy student to understand and expand my scope as a professional but personally as well. I knew I wanted to be a part of fitsom and joined as a member immediately following the completion of my internship. I’m thrilled now to be part of the fitsom team.

Favorite Exercise

A hip hinge! There is something truly elegant in a nice hip hinge. It demonstrates so much. If you really look at the squat, deadlift, kettlebell swing, lunge… All of them are a variation of hip hinging.
