Personal Fitness is the key to a happy and healthy life. Let me be your guide on that journey to achieve the success your striving for. With the right guidance you can make positive changes in your health and fitness that can make a huge impact in your future. My background doesn’t start with a love of fitness or sports like most, I was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 8. After years of wearing a restricting back brace to hold my curved spine in place it was decided that surgery was the only option left. As anyone knows with any type of injury or issue the pain never really subsides. After years of doctors offering to fix the pain with medication I decided to learn or develop ways to build my core and overall body strength. With lots of research and discussing options with doctors, trainers and physical therapists I modify exercises to fit me. No matter where you are, each fitness journey has to be developed around individual people and their needs, as your trainer I will do that and together we will be successful at each step.

I believe every individual is created unique and different! Therefore, every individual’s fitness abilities and needs are also unique and specific to them. My goal, as a personal trainer, is to meet you at your current fitness level then create a fun, effective, and engaging program specific to your health and fitness goals. My job is to help you be the best you can be in your body!
In high school and college I was an active person, participating in swim team, color guard, and track. Even though I was active I still struggled with my weight. In college I decided to really get down to the nitty-gritty and get healthy. I hired my own personal trainer who encouraged me and challenged my ideas of fitness and what eating healthy really looked like. I lost the weight I needed to, and started competing in triathlons. I began beating my personal records again and again. Even after a bad bike crash (that put me in urgent care after the race) I got up, hopped on my beat up bike, finished the race and placed second in my age category.
A couple of crashes left me with a hurting body that made physical activity very hard. My love for triathlons still prevailed though and I hired another personal trainer. She understood my weaknesses and worked with me to make my body stronger so I could compete again. The awesome experiences I have had with personal trainers encouraged me to get certified as well. Now armed with my A.C.E. Personal Training Certification, I am on a lifetime journey to stay fit and healthy and to help others do the same!

Fitness has been a priority my entire life... from being a sprinter, hurdler, long jumper, and earning President's Physical Fitness Awards in my school days... to making fitness, health, and well-being a part of my daily routine in adulthood. When I started substitute-teaching fitness classes ten years ago I found that helping others improve their level of fitness was as rewarding as achieving my own personal goals. This prompted me to attain my Group Fitness Instructor Certification and teach my own classes, and to follow that up with my Personal Trainer Certification. My philosophy is "It's never too late to achieve your true potential".

I learned during my time training with British Special Forces, that in order to establish physical fitness as a lasting part of your lifestyle, the training you do must be enjoyable and it must achieve results. I will design your program around you: your schedule, your fitness level, your goals and what you enjoy. A program that works and leaves you wanting more.
I have been involved in top level sports and fitness since a very early age and have a broad range of fitness and conditioning experience. My aim is to design a program for you that will make you fit for purpose, achieve your goals, and keep you enthusiastic and hungry for more. Those are the ingredients for a lifelong fitness habit. From youth sports to adults, and from competitive athletes to those who just want to be fitter and healthier, I will make your fitness journey fun and successful.
