I was a competitive athlete for 30+ years in a variety of sports including swimming, gymnastics, dancing, soccer, diving, track, bicycle motorcross, triathlon, long-distance running, and adventure racing until chronic injuries and a string of ill-fated surgeries forced me to "retire". Those 30+ years gave me a lifetime love for health and fitness and set me on my path to help others cultivate, maintain and expand their own fitness level as well as provide a solid understanding of and love for fitness and wellness in their own lives. I began my career as a fitness instructor in 1986 as a competitive, women’s gymnastics coach and choreographer. After graduating from college I earned my primary certification as a Group Fitness Instructor and began teaching fitness classes. Throughout the next decade I continued teaching and acquiring more advanced and varied group fitness certifications as well as a Personal Trainer certification. I also began teaching private swim lessons to competitive swimmers and triathletes. In 2000 I made the decision to become a full-time fitness professional and began teaching at a private club. In the years since, I've continued to acquire more trainings and certifications in various disciplines including STOTT PILATES® (Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels), TRX® Force™ Suspension System Training, POSE® Method Running, Injuries and Special Populations, and Polynesian Dance. I have taught at colleges, private clubs, nation-wide chains, military bases, and out of my own home studio in locations all across the U.S. and overseas. I've worked with children as young as 6 years old and adults as old as 91. I've trained post-surgical/post-rehab clients, new moms wanting to lose those last few baby pounds, grandparents who just want to be fit enough to play with the grandkids, serious athletes, and long-time exercisers stuck in a rut and looking for new and fun ways to stay fit. As a had the unique opportunity, honor and privilege to train active duty soldiers, reservists, Special Ops members, and Wounded Warriors. Because of my own experience with injuries, both chronic and acute, I am well acquainted with both the physical as well as mental challenges injured individuals face; all of which has led me to explore and become quite knowledgeable in the areas of nutrition, myofascial release, Gyrotonics / Gyrokinesis, mindfulness and meditation, visualization / setting intention, and stress management -- all of which I incorporate into my work with clients. My desire is to help people achieve optimal physical function and health (whatever that may be for each individual); to equip them with the desire and knowledge neccessary for a lifetime of healthy living; to better equip and enable each individual to fulfill the purposes God has for them by being as healthy as possible; and live life to the fullest. I look forward to working with you!”
