Tara is a bay area native but has roots all over the world (her parents live in Thailand!). She fell in love with Lagree fitness while she was living in Santa Barbara during college. When she discovered the Core40 studio in Soma, she was overjoyed to get back at it. Tara works in advertising, which brings crazy hours and stressful deadlines. She uses fitness as a stress release and it allows her to strengthen her body, since sitting at a desk for long hours leaves her body feeling drained. She is also a self-deemed health nut when it comes to nutrition. She felt a huge positive change when she switched to eating only whole/clean food and cutting out anything processed. Tara feels very lucky to be living in San Francisco, which gives her the opportunity to shop local and organic all year round. In her free time, Tara loves to run – she finished her first half marathon last year and has since been addicted! She also enjoys hiking, swimming, and traveling anywhere that involves scuba diving because she loves the ocean. She promises a challenging, upbeat, and diverse 40-minute class!
