Group Exercise Director & Certified Trainer
As the Group Exercise Director, it is my mission to help our members get what they need to reach their ﬁtness goals. Basically, I want to help you be healthy. With me, you get a personal trainer with a twist though. I'm a trainer who also teaches Yoga. I believe in a well rounded approach to ﬁtness. Strength, Endurance, Flexibility and Balance. We need to work on all four so that our bodies stay functional through out our lives. If you don't use it, you'll lose it. So even if you feel you're lacking in one or more of these areas, you can can get better with practice. I help members achieve that in my individual personal training sessions, PEAK 212 Small Group Training sessions and Yoga classes.
I've personally struggled with the difﬁcult and daunting task of weight loss. Putting family and work ﬁrst, my own personal health was last. I was plagued with chronic pain, food allergies, crazy schedules and depression, so I understand what affects being overweight have on us. I didn't take hold of my health until I was ready though. I believe you have to get to that point in your life when you say "OK. That's it. I'm done with all this. I'm ready to work on ME!"
My personal health journey lead me to a new career path after 14 years in another industry. I'm now an ACE certiﬁed Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor. I can't wait to share with you the lessons I've learned in getting healthy. Don't get me wrong, it's a daily effort, but it can be achieved. I'll help you to set realistic and achievable goals that are catered to your schedule and interests.
