Being a personal trainer isn't a 9 to 5 job, it's 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Being a good personal trainer, is not just
having knowledge of fitness, it's about being a role model and setting a good example to inspire others and I strive every day to do just that!
Hello everyone! As the founder and head personal trainer of Moirai Health and Fitness, I welcome you! Thank you for checking out my website and taking interest in beginning the journey to change your life. For me, my journey as a fitness professional started while attending Columbia College Chicago for broadcast journalism.
I have always been involved in sports my entire life and as I was a journalism student, I joined the co-ed soccer team and began training competitively in boxing and muay thai. While getting ready for my first golden gloves boxing match, I was interning at 103.5 Kiss FM and a show on NBC when I was told by a few of the employees that my dedication inspired them to want to get in shape. In fact, they asked me to train them. I told them I had absolustely NO experience with training someone and all I knew was how to train myself, but they did not care and kept insisting. With that being said, I took on the challenge and started experimenting with exercise programming and nutrition. After a few sessions, I realized just how much I fell in love with helping others acheive their health and fitness goals.
My passion for living a healthy lifestyle and helping others do the same just kept growing. After I graduated from Columbia College Chicago, I decided to completely switch careers to becoming a fitness professional.
After receiving my certifications, I started out at a corporate gym, but felt that the focus of the gym was all about making money and not enough about the client's needs. Within only 8 months, I ended up taking the risk and left the security of the gym in order to create Moirai Health and Fitness in order to dedicate my complete time and effort to helping my clients change their lives for the better.
Join me on my journey and let me guide you through yours. Invest in yourself, invest in Moirai because we invest in YOU!

The meaning of 'Moirai' (pronounced MORE-EYE) translates to Fate and it originates from the greek mythology The Moirai. The Moirai were known as the goddesses of fate. It is believed that there were three, Clotho - spun the thread of life, Lachesis - Measured the thread of life and Atropos - Cut the thread of life, determing when their time has come.
I incorporated the greek mythology meaning of The Moirai into my health and fitness business because the better you take care of yourself, the healthier you are and the longer you live. If you make good choices in life you end up determining your own fate and becoming your own Moirai. Moirai Health and Fitness strives to do just that, guide you on your journey to living a healthy, happy and long life. Live the Moirai way!
