About Me

What you see is what you get.

Lover of dress up. Eloquent sass mouth.

Music lover. Dog lover. Die-hard San Francisco sports fan. Designer shoe connoisseur. Edgy fashion, makeup, and nail art junkie.

I believe in the power of hard work and mentorship, not handouts. Sarcasm is my gift. I believe good rye and scotch are the only alcohol worth drinking and are best served neat, only excepted by my signature go-to, the Manhattan. My fur baby boy Melrose is the love of my life!

I’m a certified personal trainer and RRCA certified run coach, and bring over 15 years of racing experience on the track and trails, coached by my ultra-marathoner father. I spent 6 years in the service as a Marine officer, and love incorporating my training into fun and tough workouts for my clients and friends.

When I’m not blogging here, I’m working in tech sales, and writing as a weekly columnist for ClassPass and their super awesome blog. Check back every week for my picks on everything from classes to fitness fashion! I also partner with POPSUGAR Fitness and provide content and sometimes test product.

    Hey Mandy,

    I forgot how, but I found you and your blog several months ago on Twitter. I also live in San Francisco, though I’m bordering the suburbs near Daly City (I tell people I live in the Oceanview in SF neighborhood terms). I’m even more excited to follow your site now that I’ve finally settled into a varied and fun fitness routine thanks to ClassPass! For the last few years, I went to the gym, did some home exercises, and went out on runs on-and-off before going to barre classes on a regular basis, and now I’m discovering a lot more fun ways to work out 3-4 times a week thanks to ClassPass. Your blog will be an excellent resource for me for all things fitness and fashion. Keep up the good work! 🙂
