Hi I’m Sami! I can’t wait to welcome you to our team!
I’m a lifestyle, competition prep, strength, and pregnancy/postpartum coach in addition to being a wife, momma of 2 adorable boys, and nationally qualified NPC competitor. I have a Bachelor of Science as well as a Master Degree in Instructional Leadership from the University of Utah and am a NASM certified personal trainer.
Originally I began my career as an elementary school teacher. During my 5 years as a teacher, I also worked as a part -time coach for Fitbliss. As much as I LOVED teaching, I quickly realized that my true passion was in teaching women rather than children and helping them to feel more empowered, strong, and confident in themselves than they ever knew possible and find their “fitbliss” the same way that I did by becoming part of this incredible team! I stopped teaching a few years ago to coach full time and have loved every minute!
The path that brought me to Fitbliss, though, actually began several years ago when I had finished my undergraduate degree and realized how unhappy and uncomfortable I felt in my body. This was one of the lowest times in life for me. I had really enjoyed my time in college (including lots of late night food runs, parties, and social events with friends) but I found myself struggling a lot with my body image, and worse, lacking the confidence I had once had. I tried every “fad” diet in the book at that time. I cut sugar out of my diet, cut carbs, stopped eating after 8, and became a cardio queen in the hopes of getting my body “back”. I was completely miserable! It felt like I had to completely choose between enjoying life and feeling “fit” again.
I discovered Fitbliss and couldn't believe that there was a different approach out there that didn’t involve over restriction or hours of cardio for reaching your goals. I fell in love with the empowerment that comes from lifting heavy and learning how to fuel your body with what it actually needs in order to make changes. I’ve never looked back since!
Outside of coaching the amazing women that I work with everyday, I enjoy reading, spending time with friends, and loved ones, and most of all my two amazing baby boys and husband!
I love the approach that Fitbliss takes with their clients. I have been able to discover a way of eating that I will be able to do for a lifetime and am able to celebrate small victories over and over!
I would recommend the trainers to ANYONE even if you're just looking to be healthy and not to compete. They truly care about their clients and give them the tools and knowledge they need to be successful with whatever their goal may be!
