I have been involved in the fitness industry for much of my life. After suffering a debilitating thyroid disease, I recovered and regained myself through fitness and proper nutrition. I studied at Colorado State University and then “got my feet wet” in Metro Health clubs. I furthered my education by receiving certificates in Personal training through ACE and ISSA. I also am certified in Performance Nutrition.I rely on my certification with the American College on Sports Nutrition (ACSM) to keep me on the cutting edge of sports science.I am a certified Post Therapy Rehab Trainer and I have thousands of hours of experience working with individuals from all different groups.
In addition to my work at the personal training studio, I also meet with groups and organizations and speak on fitness related topics. My approach to fitness and nutrition is lighthearted and fun, encouraging everyone to get involved in an enjoyable, rewarding way. Each program is designed with quick and lasting success in mind.
