Megan graduated from Penn State University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Her fitness background includes gymnastics, swimming, field hockey, and running. While she enjoyed running for many years, she realized it wasn’t the only or best way to get strong and healthy. Today, she loves kettlebells, Olympic lifting, bodyweight exercises, high intensity workouts, and walking. She believes that whatever you do for exercise should be fun and enjoyable, but also help you move better and feel good. Although she has an appreciation for functional, effective training and programming, she strongly believes that nutrition is the key to optimal health. This is why she combines her role as a personal trainer with her own nutrition practice, Keep it Real, which she started in 2014.

As a Health Coach and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, she focuses on helping women who want to get their energy back, fix their digestion, and lose weight by eating better and getting to the root cause of their symptoms. She uses an individualized and real food approach to empower women to find a way of eating that works specifically for them. This includes helping them feel better while repairing their metabolism, adrenals, digestion, and hormones with food and supplement support.

Megan is also a Certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome Practitioner, Certified Personal Trainer, Crossfit Level 1 Certified, RKC Level 1 Instructor, and USAW L1 certified.
