I have been coaching clients the importance of good nutrition and lifting weights for over 6 years now. Helping others discover their own version of fit and healthy is my true passion in this life.
Weightlifting changed my life. I was in a dark place before I discovered this version of fitness that actually worked for me. My goal now is to find those people that need me and need help to finding their fit.
I started my bodybuilding career when I was 17 years old. After my first show at the age of 18, I became nationally qualified when I won the Teen and Open Bikini divisions. I competed at the National level until earning my IFBB Bikini Pro status at Muscle Contest NPC USA Championships at the age of 20. My professional competitions include two NPC Regional shows, five NPC National shows, one International show and four pro shows. My first season as a Professional Bikini Pro culminated with a top 5 finish at the IFBB Tahoe Show 2020. I also competed in All-Star Competitive Cheerleading for eight years, starting at the age of 10, and then cheered for The University of Nevada, Reno, for four years.
Having been a Certified Personal Trainer for almost 4 years, I am extremely knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the sport of bodybuilding including training, posing, and dieting. I have extensive experience with posing females at all levels, creating a complete individualized routine and well executed stage presentation. I am extremely passionate about this sport therefore, one of my goals is to help other athletes achieve their fitness goals with the confidence they desire and deserve. My involvement in bodybuilding has taught me about discipline, dedication, and drive which are a part of my overall lifestyle. I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge of training and goal setting with you.
I began in the fitness industry as a front desk employee and quickly realized (thanks to Jeff, the owner of Stimulus) that I wanted to be a trainer.
I’ve now been helping people for 7 years of all backgrounds. I’m am certified or have various CEUs by Precision Nutrition, NCCPT, PTA global, NASM, and am in the process of becoming a CHEK level 1 Practitioner.
I am always searching for ways to gain more knowledge and actively stay up to date on scientific research and evidence practices. My goal is to help anyone learn not only HOW to take care of their body but WHY.

Dr. Rouse’s first desire to help others developed as she endured several hip surgeries, the subsequent recoveries, and the need to have to relearn how to walk three times. She wanted to help people who were also struggling through recovery as well as having issues with their body not doing what they wanted to do. After finishing her undergrad degree, she became a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified personal trainer and gained an extra certification as a NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES). Through this continued training, her passion for finding the root cause of her client’s injuries or muscular imbalances grew. She was driven to able to give her clients more help than she had received during her recoveries - she wanted to continue to help improve the quality of life for those around her at a higher level. It was shortly after this; Dr. Rouse decided to attend Chiropractic school to further her education. Through her schooling as well as various other seminars during school, she was able to fill her tool box with a variety of different adjusting techniques.
200 HOUR ASHTANGA TRAINING & 200 HOUR HATHA TRAINING
My yoga journey started in 2016 when I was living on a yoga farm in Australia. I didn’t realize now how unhealthy I was, not only physically but mentally. I started practicing yoga every day for the entire month while living on this farm and have not looked back since. I continued my travels and practiced anywhere I could find space. That’s the gift of yoga, you can practice almost anywhere at any time. I was addicted. I could feel the difference in my days when I did not practice. My physical body and consciousness had completely changed.
I came home to Reno and wanted to learn more. I started practicing Ashtanga yoga every day for one year with my guru Carol. I eventually completed my first Ashtanga teacher training in 2017 and in 2018 I completed my Hatha teacher training. Yoga has given me the gift to see this beautiful life with new eyes. Yoga has forever changed my life and I feel blessed to have the knowledge to share this gift with you. Yoga is not about how much you can twist your body; it is about bringing yourself to the present moment. Yoga is about connecting your breath to each movement and the feeling of this connection is true magic. Yoga is for EVERYBODY! Can’t wait to yogi with you!
