Megan Palmer - Trainer

Megan Palmer is now a NCSF Personal Trainer!! We are so proud of her and excited for what is in store for her. Check out what she had to say about what motivated her: 

“I’ve been a stay at home mom to my four boys for the past 11 years. After giving birth to my twins in 2008, I decided I needed to lose the rest of the baby weight. What started out as weight loss, quickly changed into more of a passion, a lifestyle, and a stress release for myself. I started teaching Les Mill Bodypump 4 years ago along with my running as a way to hold myself accountable. I fell in love with the program and all of these amazing people it brought into my life. Watching people succeed at goals they set for themselves just gave me more of a desire to want to help people and be a part of their journey.
