Hi I'm Vanessa. I'm originally from Utah. I have lived in Boise since 2013. Exercise has been a part of my life, beginning as a child with dance. But it wasn't until adulthood that exercise and nutrition became a passion and a major part of my identity. I discovered FitMania (now Ascent) in 2018 and a major love for weightlifting and High Intensity Interval Resistance Training sprouted from there. I began training for Ascent in 2019 and Personal Training in 2020. If I could share one piece of advice to everyone, it would be "You are worth the effort it takes to take care of yourself-physically, mentally and emotionally. Put in the work and reap the reward!"
