“The secret to life is enjoying the passage of time.”
Everyone is an individual with changing needs and wants. As a personal trainer I enjoy getting to know what motivates and excites you, so I can help you achieve your personal best and enjoy the process. With a realistic Plan, Perseverance and Patience you will achieve your goals! Exercise has been a part of my life since the age of 4. Competitive swimming provided me camaraderie, taught me lessons in humility, and ultimately the satisfaction of hard work paying off at NCAA Nationals in College. Nearly 34 years later I can say that a lifetime of Fitness is part of who I am. I now enjoy a variety of activities from Jogging and running local races to Hiking, and dancing with friends whenever I get the chance. Picking different modes of exercise has kept me active. I have taught spinning, cardio kickboxing, swimming and water aerobics for 25+ years in clubs and private homes.

Her clients have lost in excess of 500 pounds, more importantly, they’ve developed an appreciation for daily movement and making choices that lead to overall wellness.
One of the best changes in the20+ years I’ve worked out is the emphasis on functional fitness which I bring to my training. We move multi-dimensionally in real life and need exercises that mimic that, to help us optimally through the day. I’m a big believer in core training, and working on balance, posture, and flexibility, in addition to traditional strength and cardio workouts, and combine all into a complete effective workout.
I believe that a healthy, fit lifestyle is an achievable goal for everyone, challenging at times but always worthwhile. Over the years, I’ve been active in and out of the gym, skiing, skating, doing races (I have completed a triathlon as well as a marathon) and love trying new activities. I was once a couch potato and know the difficulties, both physically and mentally, of getting started. I like to help people attain fitness, not only in the gym, but also outside, to support you in doing activities you enjoy or want to try. I am a ski instructor and am a group fitness instructor and teach sports conditioning/boot camp, step, kickboxing, spinning/indoor cycling, and core/strength classes. My favorite part of teaching and training is being able to reach a wide variety of fitness levels, and motivate both very fit clients to people just getting started.
