I have worked in the fitness industry for over 15 years. I was a competitive gymnast as a child, and ran distance track in high school. I love fitness and feel fortunate to spend my days sharing that passion with others.
My goal as a personal trainer is to keep your workouts effective, safe, and fun, while tailoring them to your needs, as we continue to challenge your body and help you reach your health and fitness goals. I specialize in weight loss, senior fitness, general fitness, body sculpting, and corrective exercise. I have worked with clients ranging from 12 to 94 years of age. Through safe, fun, and effective workouts I have helped people of all ages lose fat, gain muscle, bust with definition, and increase both balance and flexibility. I have also helped people with posterior alignment through corrective exercise that has eliminated back, hip, and other chronic joint pain.
As a mother of three, I understand how hard it can be to find balance in life. I believe that with correct balance, nutrition, exercise, and rest we will all find out natural size and healthiest version of ourselves.

While I’ve been athletic for a good portion of my life, I’m well acquainted with the struggle of weight loss. I know every excuse in the book – because I made them. I tried nearly every diet program on the market, and battled with body image. Through those experiences, I realized that every body is different. There is no one-size-fits-all recipe for success. Long lasting success comes from creating a fun, active, maintainable lifestyle that yields results – whether the goal is fat loss, improved mobility, increased athletic performance or all of the above. It has to leave you wanting more.
Let me help you achieve a maintainable level of fitness that will enable you move confidently into each day, no matter what life throws at you. With a special focus on whole body movements, Olympic and Power Lifting techniques, and Interval Cross Training, overall fitness and strength can grow by leaps and bounds. Whether your goals include improving flexibility, losing body fat, increasing overall athleticism, event specific training, or anything in between, I want to design and coach a program that will get you there. Put me on your team and let’s discover what you’re capable of.

The decision to join the Y and embrace a more active lifestyle is one of the biggest and best choices I've ever made. This community has truly provided a healthy place for me to work on my spirt, mind and body. I started small with small goals, but made the commitment to myself to start on a better and healthier way of life. Over the past five years I have gained the confidence and happiness that I have always longed for but never quite knew how to find. Through weight lifting and hard work I have seen first hand the results of dedication and hard work. I started off doing strictly cardio classes but saw my body truly change after I began lifting weights. I currently teach Women On Weights, participate in our Strongman competition, and love all things sports related. Whether you're just starting out or were born in the weight room, I'd love to help you achieve your goals and be the best version of you.

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 have been involved in top level sports and fitness since a very early age and have a broad range of fitness and conditioning experience.
