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.

Fitness has been a priority my entire life from being a sprinter, hurdler, long jumper, and earning the 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 10 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."
