AREA OF SPECIALTY:
Overall health and fitness, running.
I’ve taught group fitness classes for over four years at the Kenosha YMCA, focusing on running, Yoga, and the Silver Sneakers program.
Age is just a number. You are never too old to accomplish fitness goals and take that first step toward becoming a healthier you! I also am a believer in making fitness fun! If it’s not fun, it becomes a chore—and not something to look forward to.
MY PASSION FOR FITNESS COMES FROM:
My fitness journey started over 10 years ago as a member of Kenosha YMCA and working out in Group Fitness classes. This led to finding a joy in running. To date, I’ve run over 12 marathons, many half marathons, and shorter distance races, and I’ve completed a number of triathlons. My love of cardio, combined with my love of strength training, inspired me to pass on my passion for fitness to others through personal training.
MY PROUDEST MOMENT WITH A CLIENT:
When a client notices that activities of daily living become easier due to working out. I love to see clients discover their inner athlete they never knew existed. Humans are all athletes in one degree or another!
MY FAVORITE EXERCISE/ TRAINING TOOL:
Combining both cardio and strength training in a workout to get the heart rate up and build strength and power.
