Since the age of 6, I have been a competitive swimmer. I swam breaststroke for throughout my time at Colby College and have since transitioned to sprint triathlons, cycling, and road races (5k through half marathon). In addition to playing intramural sports (softball, ultimate frisbee, hockey), I am also a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve worked with Brown Recreation since January 2018 where I teach High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Speed & Agility, and cycling classes [link]. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic put me online as virtual (low-impact) HIIT instructor.
Prior to graduation, I also founded and lead a workout group for Brown Graduate Students called Astronaut Training. This social workout group, sanctioned by Brown University, aims to promote the development and maintenance of healthy exercise habits. Leading up to the pandemic shutdown, we’d met consistently twice weekly for morning workouts since July 2015 [link].
