What got you into personal training?
I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do after I had graduated from college. I moved to Pennsylvania and the first job I could find was in a tiny gym in a small town. I took the job and fell in love with what being a personal trainer was. I liked helping people accomplish their goals and being able to work with individuals so closely.
What exactly is an ultra-marathon? What was the longest one you completed?
An ultra-marathon is a race with a distance over 26.2 miles, or a "normal" marathon. They are normally done in the mountains or off road terrain.
I did a 32 mile race with a 7 thousand feet elevation gain in Utah. I literally felt like that would be my final resting place!!
You can always reach your goals no matter who you are.
