People ask me my fitness background all the time like how long have I been working out and honestly my answer is my whole life! I swam for 8 years on an all year round swim team while doing some water polo and somehow still had time to do volleyball and basketball at school when the seasons started. If I could have done more I would have. I've kept active in the water during the summer, I teach swimming lessons and water aerobics, while getting some surfing and paddleboarding in as much as I can or just bumming it out on the beach, my safe haven! I'm honestly addicted to working out, it's my release from whatever is going on in the world nothing can touch me there.
I've been in the fitness industry for just over 6 years. Im a certified personal trainer (NCSF), I teach bootcamp, Circuit training and Spinning (MADD DOGG). I enjoy Cycling,running and weight training and the fact that I can help others get healthy and reach their goals, I love a persons reaction after a satisfied workout and I'll always do my best to coach,teach,motivate and encourage!
