I work with women who want to build strength, curves and confidence. These women have access to a gym or weights, and are ready to get serious about their training.
If you’ve been piddling around the gym for a while, but haven’t really gotten the results you want, then I'm your girl.
If you are ready to build lean muscle, and start filling out those jeans then message me ASAP to get started!
I was always a skinny kid.
I was a big, fat baby but quickly changed into a skinny kid with toothpick arms, narrow shoulders and not one womanly curve anywhere! All of my young life my clothes kind of hung on me like they would on a hanger, which made me self conscious, withdrawn and shy. My mother always said “pull your shoulders back, you’ll fill out one day!” Well that day never came! So as a result of being round shouldered to hide myself from the world, I eventually suffered horrible back pain and weakness to the point of not being able to get up off the floor when my back would go out completely.
To be honest, I didn’t realize I could change all of this until I was in my late twenties, early thirties! I had always been active, I have been riding horses since I was 5 years old. I became an avid cyclist and runner too. But to no avail, the muscle mass never miraculously appeared, even with all the barn chores, lifting saddles and hay bales, mucking stalls and the like. I had some decent muscle tone in my legs from cycling, but I was still missing curves and was still pretty scrawny up top.
One day I remembered something my mom had always said to me, “If you don’t like your narrow shoulders, lift weights like I do. She then proceeded to show me some shoulder exercises with a couple of dumbbells she had. She always had a nice set of weights around that she used in her regular exercise routines. She also loved Jack LaLanne and even had a membership to one of his gyms. So that’s when I decided I would give this whole weight training thing a try. I am so glad I did! Because it changed my body and it changed my life!
After spending years learning, studying and trying new things with regards to weight training, I saw the magic happen and became addicted in the best way possible. I knew I had to share what I was learning. So I studied long and hard again to become a fitness professional so I could teach other women (and men) what I was now an authority on.

I dove into all of the fitness stuff, but quickly learned that I had to learn more about nutrition. The key to building lean muscle is absolutely nutrition. Exercise is critical, but without nutrition, you won’t see much growth. These two are a true match made in heaven. You simply cannot have one without the other. Thankfully I was already slightly ahead of the game when it came to nutrition because my mom was pretty high on eating foods that fueled your body. I was raised on organic gardens and natural pasture raised chickens with their bright orange nutritious eggs, grass fed, organic meats and wild caught fish. Everything was homemade and fresh from mom’s kitchen.
I’ve been where you are. I have felt scrawny, weak and embarrassed by my lack of curves. With the right guidance - (Thanks Mom!) - I was able to learn how to build a strong, healthy body without surgery, restricting, or 2 hour long workouts. I want to help women who are where I used to be do the same. That’s what GigiFit is all about. If you are ready to learn how to fuel your body, build lean muscle and start filling out those jeans - let’s chat. I’d love to help you on your journey!
