Fitness is a passion! I believe that EVERYbody can find their place if given direction and encouragement. Members would say that my classes are challenging, that I take the time to know them and that I am supportive and want them to succeed! When I’m not teaching, members would find me training hard and trying new things. I take bootcamp classes, lift weights, body weight training, TRX Suspension Training, run, ride my bike, and swim. I enjoy completing road races, mud runs, obstacle course challenges, duathlons, triathlons, and completed my first marathon! "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone" - Neale Donald Walsch
