I met Kayla for the first time in 1998 (which she probably doesn't even remember) when I was 14 and she was 5 or 6. She was in one of the dance classes I was helping with. We got reacquainted a couple years ago when I went back to the studio to assistant teach and she was in my advanced ballet class. I'm excited to feature Kayla because she is such a motivated young adult, and I've had the pleasure to watch her grown into a great young lady!
PASSIONS: Fitness, healthy cooking, and blogging. “Fitness started out to me as something to keep off the "Freshman 15" but unexpectedly became a huge part of my life. Fitness provides me with the opportunity to challenge myself, push myself and see progress. It relieves stress and builds confidence. Cooking in itself is enjoyable to me, but since I'm so interested in health and fitness, I have a passion for finding healthier ways to still enjoy those foods I always loved. Blogging is my way to share both my healthy cooking ideas and fitness routines.”
SHORT TERM GOALS: Getting a job using her personal trainer certification and graduating from college in two years.
LONG TERM GOALS: Starting a career, buying a new car, and getting her own place.
“My mom keeps me motivated to succeed in life. She has always worked very hard towards what she wants and to be able to give me what I want. She's smart and always tries so hard to "do it all" from work to home life. While that's physically impossible and she knows that, she comes incredibly close.”
