 Secret Power: Firefiighter

Fighting fires and saving lives is my first passion, but exercise and nutrition is a very close second. After starting as a firefighter/paramedic, I realized my two passions go hand –in- hand. Ever since high school, I have been involved with many sports, my favorite being cross country. I passionately believe in the good character and values imbued by cross country and other sports: motivation, helping one another, and camaraderie. This concept is heavily applied at the fire house, so I decided to make helping others my role in life. I find that one of the most rewarding ways of helping people is to assist them achieve their fitness goals. I received my personal training certification through NASM, (National Academy of Sports Medicine), and I am always looking to increase my knowledge and stay current with fitness trends. At the end of the day, you will have pushed yourself out of your comfort zone and took control of your workout, and my role as your trainer will help you to reach the RESULTS you want. RUN HAPPY, LIFT SMART, HAVE FUN!!!

I am a 44 year old wife and mother of one daughter. I am a certified personal trainer as well as the office manager at our family business. Over the years I have seen what an impact poor nutrition and lack of exercise have on people's lives, including my own. My goal is to be the best "me" I can be and help as many people as I can along the way. My greatest success story is myself. At my heaviest I was 230 lbs. Even though I have lost over 80 lbs. over the past several years and kept the weight off there are still changes I need to make. It's all about constant and never-ending improvement and being healthy from the inside out!

 Experience: 18 years in the fitness industry

Being a competitive swimmer for 10 years and in the martial arts for 5 years, health and fitness has played a major role in my life. Unfortunately, with a demanding career my level of fitness decreased. Noticing the difference in my health, energy and excitement for life, I decided to reset my goals and take action. This motivated me to become a certified personal trainer and help others reach their goals as well. Along my journey, I have been able to supervise multiple clubs, employee and develop incredible people and currently own my own facility. My passion is to provide as many individuals as possible the ability to enhance their lifestyle through health and fitness! Health and Happiness to All
