Originally from Grand Rapids, MI, Samantha became interested in fitness at an early age. She was inspired by her mother, who was and still is very active and health conscious. Samantha became certified as a personal trainer in 2012, and went on to get her Nutrition Specialty Certification in 2015. She most recently received her Level 1 Balanced Athlete Certification in 2017. Samantha played soccer growing up and now enjoys running, weight lifting and yoga-inspired workouts. While she loves working with all types of clients, Samantha specializes in the active aging population and incorporates a training style geared toward healthy living and injury prevention. Her number one goal as a trainer is to make fitness safe, effective and fun!
