I have been a certified personal trainer for 9 years, but the vast majority of my knowledge comes from the lifetime I have spent dedicated to gymnastics and pole vaulting. I starting working out at the age of six learning how to perfect the art of moving my body in crazy ways. Gymnastics and pole vaulting helped me all the way through college with scholarships so that I could earn my Bachelors Degree in Physical Education and Health. I then went on to get my teaching licensure so that I could start implementing health and fitness into our school system but decided that I like teaching on a more individualized basis. I absolutely have a passion for helping others obtain their lifelong goals and helping people change their lifestyles so they are more healthy. I love to MIX things up so that they are not boring. One of the reasons I have my Water Safety Certification so that I am certified to teach cardio workouts in the pool, which can burn up to 1000 calories in one hour.
