Health and Fitness are dirty words to the majority of America. Most hate to sweat.  They hate to be sore. They are self-conscious in their gym clothes, and make excuses not to workout. Even the ones that do workout religiously may not “like” what they are doing. That’s where I come in.

My enthusiasm for health and fitness has always been contagious. I make fitness fun for my clients and staff with a positive attitude, hard work ethic, and a good sense of humor. I am a well-timed high five during a hard workout. I am a sounding board for clients and employees on bad days. I’ve even been told I’m their unofficial therapist.

For the last 12 years I have been been an avid obstacle course racer, competing at 6 World Championships & 2 North American Championships. Having my hip replaced 2 years ago has slowed me slightly, but I still enjoy competing at a high level.
