I'm a coach. I'm a teacher. I'm a leader. I'm a friend.
I'm also a wife, cat mom, and an aggressively average fitness doer.
You will find me in my free time binging a show or movie, reading, obstacle course racing, paddle boarding, snowboarding, hiking, or playing my Nintendo (probably Yoshi or Zelda).
I love fantasy and sci-fi and will annoy you with movie or television references often. Consider yourself warned.
If I could live in a Hobbit Hole, I 100% would.
If I could live anywhere outside of the US, it would be New Zealand or Iceland.
I really love my cats. Like, a lot.
I love gloomy weather. The rainier and grayer the day, the better.
Black, Grey, Purple, and Blue are my color choices.
I love food and love to eat (Savory > Sweet).
My ideal meal is a cheeseburger, french fries, and ice cold Hefeweizen.
...which is why I always get Samwise Gamgee on those quizzes (you know those quizzes).
I whole-heartedly believe in the saying "Mindset over Everything."
Fighting everyday to help women find strength, comfort, and empowerment in the gym ♥
"Life always begins with one step out of your comfort zone."
"The true champion doesn't chase the prize at the end. They chase the pursuit of improving from who they were yesterday."
"I can't hear what you're saying because your actions are speaking so loudly."

I can’t say enough about Abbey...her style, her knowledge & attention to the details and her desire and commitment to help me be better is like none other! She’s a true gem! No pun intended If your looking for a trainer, look no further. ️Love her!️
I honestly can't even remember a pinpoint moment in which I met Abbey because I now feel as if she's been my mentor for ages- a mentor I always needed. She combines personalized coaching and teaching with personable encouragement and support in a way that consistently cheers you forward. Even when you seem to stumble backwards, she stands right there with you in empathy because she knows how to endeavor through the setbacks, and she's not afraid to share her stories in order to help others better theirs. I could not summarize the positive effect of Abbey's style in a few words on a page, but she is an absolutely incredible human.
