Fitness is a journey....let's take your first step together! Each and every week, I spend my days (and evenings, too) helping people start their fitness journey. Whether it's a big step or a small baby step, any step is a step forward! For fourteen years, I have worked with people from all different types of backgrounds with different wants, needs, goals, and aspirations. It's always my pleasure to share with those I come into contact with my knowledge, skills, inspirations, motivation, tips and tricks...whatever it takes, is what I always say!
My journey started with a simple Group Fitness Certification and I am now certified in over 10 programs and I have had the honor to be a presenter at the IHRSA (International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association) Convention the past three years. I take great pride in my accomplishments, but nothing compares to the feeling of helping others accomplish goals they never dreamed possible.
