About Me

Hi there! My name is Haileigh. Thanks for visiting my website, Pearls & Barbells.

My goal for this blog is to share my ongoing fitness journey, meet new friends, and inspire anyone looking to make a positive change in his or her life.

Although fitness is a huge part of my life now, it wasn’t always this way. Quite frankly, I was pretty unhealthy in my early 20s. I drank too much, stayed out late, and ate unhealthy food. I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I always felt sluggish and often tried to hide my “problem areas” behind baggy clothing.

Unhappy with how I looked and felt, I started going to the gym regularly with my husband. With his support, I dived headfirst into the world of weightlifting. Over the past few years, I’ve met many inspiring people, changed my mindset, transformed my body, and accomplished more than I ever thought possible. I truly mean it when I say: if I can do it, so can you!

I hope you enjoy my little corner of the Internet. Please connect with me on Instagram @haileighsenatore and follow along on WordPress.

If you’re looking to collaborate, I’d love to hear from you. Check out my contact page to send me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

I currently live in the Pittsburgh area with my husband and our daughter, Daphne.

I’m an ENFP personality type, also known as a “true free spirit.”

I graduated from college in 2013 with a degree in English Literature.

I wasn’t always a morning person, but I am now: I start my day around 4:45am.

My favorite movies are Jurassic Park, Captain Fantastic, and Her.
