I opened a brand new Planet Fitness location as General Manager.
After graduating from Marywood in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science/Physical Activity, I immediately entered the professional fitness world as a personal trainer and fitness instructor at Planet Fitness in the Philadelphia area. Shortly thereafter, I was offered a chance to open a brand new Planet Fitness location as General Manager.
Opening a new location from the ground up was a difficult and time consuming task. However, my four years at Marywood gave me the tools and confidence I needed to tackle this challenge. The education I received in the classroom provided me with the knowledge needed to train clients and effectively manage a fitness club. Being a four-year member of Marywood’s Lacrosse team has also taught me great leadership and interpersonal skills which are applied daily, and will continue to help me as my career grows.
Wherever my career takes me, whether it is in fitness club ownership, or personal training, I know that everything I learned at Marywood will be with me every step of the way.
