I received my Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science in June 2006 and have been working as a Full Time In Home Personal Trainer in Northern and Central New Jersey since fall 2008. I’m fully insured, and am certified by the American Red Cross in First Aid and Adult CPR-AED.
Although I knew fitness was my passion and Personal Training was what I wanted to do with my career, I was having a lot of success throughout college in finance and had a good head of steam with a lot of experience by the time I graduated. By this time I’d made a lot of contacts in different aspects of the business and had become close with a lot of young men that were making a LOT of money- so I felt it was only fair to give it a shot and put my love for fitness on the back burner
Well unbeknownst to me our economy was on the verge of severe decline and I missed the boat on all the easy money my friends and colleagues were collecting. However, in the meantime I’d been Personal Training one of my best friends from my childhood that had been overweight and unhealthy his entire life. He was obviously familiar with my passion and background in fitness, and after failing to lose the weight on his own numerous times he knew I was the only one that could help him turn his life around. We worked together feverishly in the gym AND in the kitchen and after 7 short months he had lost over 130 pounds naturally and was SUPER fit! Then he got a new job, his hours changed and he no longer had the time to train with me so he went off on his own and I was left without any Personal Training clients, and soon after that I had no job. The void I felt when he stopped training with me was unreal, I never thought it would effect me as much as it did. And that’s when I knew it was time to start my own fitness business and Toned at Home Personal Training was born.
