Hi...I have always enjoyed health and fitness but did not decide to make a career of it until I was going back to school for a degree in teaching. While attending college, I began working at the YMCA, going to workshop/trainings, teaching classes, etc. I finished my degree in Elementary Education but decided to pursue a career in health and wellness. I have recently moved to TN and am excited about this venture in my life to continue encouraging people to pursue healthy lifestyles.

    I just recently started boot camp with Angela and it is the best workout I have ever done. I feel so energized (next day) and positive. She is so motivational to myself and the group. I have noticed results in my stamina and strength.

    I am a 50 year old grandmother of 6, who with my daughter, started doing Zumba in June 2012 with Angela as my instructor, and then it progressed into boot camp 3 times a week. My daughter and I ran in the Military Mud Run in September 2012; we would not have been able to do that without Angela; she is so inspirational and lets us know that we can do whatever we set our minds and body to do! Angela is a fireball full of energy, positive attitude and motivation. She is not only my instructor but a friend, it took me 2 Zumba instructors to find my 1; I was led to her for a reason! Love her!

    Angela is a great instructor. She is great at Zumba and Boot Camp. Her Boot Camp is awesome!! I started Zumba with Angela in February 2011. I was stuffed into a size 12 and refused to move up to a size 14. In June 2011, Angela started Boot Camp. I started attending Boot Camp one night a week (and would do 2-3 nights a week if it was offered). When I started Boot Camp, I could not even do one push-up! Angela started us out at what we thought was tough stuff to do. Now we look back and see how much we have advanced at the workout level we are at today and it is amazing. It is now one year later and I have lost approximately 35 pounds in a year and I am now into a loose size 8. I still need to drop another 15 pounds to be satisfied. Once I reach that goal, I will still continue workouts with Angela. I feel so much better since I have started working out with a workout that I look forward to. Friends say "I can't to that because of my knee, etc". Well folks let me tell you, Angela always gives an alternate for every routine she plans. During her workouts, she always gives us food tips, etc. Angela helps us to stay healthier and have more energy, and most of all...be able to enjoy life a lot more. I am so thankful that God allowed Angela to cross my path. She has changed my life.
