Sydney grew up in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Her fitness passion sparked at a young age with participation in a variety of sports, from dance to soccer, basketball, and volleyball. But it wasn’t until she joined an elite-level track & field club that Sydney’s interest in human performance really took hold. As a young athlete, Sydney was surrounded by role models - older, elite athletes who had their sights set on the Olympics. Inspired by her surroundings, she learned to constantly push herself harder and dream bigger. Tired of the rain, Sydney signed on as a collegiate track & field athlete at Azusa Pacific University in sunny SoCal. She studied Applied Exercise Science and Business Management while partnering with a local start-up fitness app company to host fitness challenges for the APU faculty and staff as well as coaching high school track & field for fun. Sydney’s number one priority is to help people not only reach their goals but enjoy the process along the way. She hopes to share her passion with others by proving to them that they are always capable of more than they think they are, and that fitness can and should be fun!
