Kaila's interest in health and wellness began in 2002 while living in the South American country of Ecuador. While living abroad she began to suffer from panic attacks. She found that exercise lessened the severity and frequency of the attacks. She joined a local gym and fell in love with the results from the exercise combined with her new diet, which included the variety of fresh vegetables and fruits grown in the country.
The owner of the local gym offered her a job teaching hip hop dance classes to young girls. That was her introduction to fitness. Upon returning to the U.S. some of her old habits and ways began to emerge and she quickly found that she had gained 25 lbs. Working with patients as a rehab tech helped her to once again notice the positive physical and emotional affects of exercise, so she began to make adjustments in her own life. The results came quickly and helped to break down her negative self image. In time, she decided to try running and even entered a few races. She began with 5k's a 10k and then a half marathon. Her reignited love for fitness caused others to encourage her to make it her profession, and that is exactly what she did.
Kaila is an NSCA certified personal trainer with a Pilates Level 1 Mat certification. She continues to run and has added biking as her latest challenge with the goal of competing in her first duathlon in the spring.
