About Me


I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine NASM and National Strength Professionals Association NSPA certified personal trainer since 2001. In my previous life I was an elementary school teacher for 12 years. But I LOVE my second career and really prefer teaching ADULTS how to stay fit! I am also Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)/Automated External Defibrillator (AED) certified. I also have a special certification in TRXSuspension Training.

Personally, I enjoy running and triathlon and have run 27 marathons and have also completed 4 Ironman triathlons . I am thinking about training for another Ironman in 2014. Having a race on the calendar really keeps me motivated to get those workouts done! Most recently I did my first 5-mile open water swim!


I enjoy working with clients of all abilities, ages, and skill levels from the brand new exerciser to athletes. I work hard to make sure each workout session is a little different than the last. No repeat workouts - for I believe it is important to keep both your muscles and your brain challenged. Also doing a variety of exercises keeps you interested with leads to consistency and ultimately leads you to the results you want! Of course remaining injury free! I work with my clients to make sure they have a certain fitness goal in mind - such as playing more with their kids or doing a first 5k. This makes it certain that all workouts are specific and worthwhile.
