1. How did you start your fitness journey?
I was always involved in sports throughout high school: softball, cheerleading, cross-country. So when I went to college staying active and eating healthy was simply part of who I was. I got a job at the campus rec center my freshman year as a fitness attendant. By my sophomore year, I was teaching group fitness classes and eventually got my certification to become a personal trainer. The more I learned the stronger my passion grew for fitness and it continues to become stronger to this day.
- How do you recommend college students stay fit and healthy?
Priorities and time management are two of the most difficult challenges I believe college students are faced with, BUT if they can be mastered, staying fit and healthy is a breeze. Smart food choices, sufficient amounts of sleep, and exercise must be prioritized in order to achieve an overall fit and healthy lifestyle.
- What does your workout schedule look like?
My training rotates in phases. For 3 weeks I focus on one muscle group more frequently than others, then take a week to replenish and rejuvenate so I will be ready for the next phase. For example, if I were in a hamstring-focused cycle, my schedule would look something like this:
Sunday- Hamstring/ Shoulders
Monday- Back and Calves
Tuesday- Quads/ Glutes
Friday-Hamstrings/ Glutes (AM) and Hamstrings/Calves (PM)
- What are some of your favorite supplements you use?
PES Amino IV (Blueberry Burst) and Select (Chocolate PB Cup)
- Do you have any good recipes that you make?
I love making “Proats” with my PES Select!
First, cook oats separately, then stir in one scoop on Select. Simple and delicious :)
- What does your diet look like?
I am currently reverse dieting so my calories increase about every 7-10 days depending on how quickly my body adjusts. I eat 6 meals a day with a large percentage of my macros being carbs- simply because my body responds really well to them.
Side note: This may not be the best for most females, but it is what works best for me.
- How have you stayed motivated?
I train and eat healthy because I absolutely love it. I want to be the best version of myself! I understand I only get one body and I am passionate about taking very good care of it. When you truly love something, when it makes you a better person, THAT is all the motivation you need. Do what you love!
- What do you love about PEScience?
First and foremost I love my PES family! They are truly the best support system I could ever ask for and words cannot explain how grateful I am to represent PEScience. Also, each product we offer serves a very beneficial purpose and is formulated based on scientific evidence. The formulas are created specifically by what has been proven to work. For example, Select is a whey/casein blend and Amino IV has a 10:1:1 ratio. I could go on forever about how much I love PES, but I will end by offering my coupon code TAYLER for 30% off a purchase of any amount.
- How have you managed to balance a social life and staying fit?
I believe surrounding yourself with people who lift you up is very important. It has never been difficult for me to “balance” staying fit because the people who I enjoy spending time with care about me and are like-minded. They love and support me for who I am.
10.Any advice for people looking to start lifting?
Slow and steady wins the race. Don’t be in a rush to be like your favorite fitness model next week. It’s a learning process, and my advice is to focus on progress over perfection. Enjoy the journey!
