My fitness journey began in Highschool when I made up aerobics routines in my bedroom to my boom box. Yes, that’s embarrassing. During college I played around with fitness attending classes and getting my runs in, but wasn’t making the healthiest of choices. During my time in law school, I began attending a gym and group fitness classes regularly. It was my escape from studying, my stress relief and another way to get endorphins flowing. Before I knew it I was asked to lead a class and then I was hooked. I obtained several fitness certifications and began teaching regularly at different gyms. I loved the people, the energy and learning new moves and methods.
I graduated from law school and began the practice of law. I continued to exercise and work out around my work schedule but had to give up teaching. Eventually I was able to get back into teaching and leading fitness classes and am still at it today – 20 years after leading that first class! It is my passion and my love. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and love what I do.
My family health history is not so great, so I began at an early age to be mindful of my body, my habits and my nutrition. I aim to outsmart my bad genes with a healthy lifestyle!
I continue to educate myself on new workouts, trends and studies. I know that fitness is not all exercise and workouts and that our nutrition and what we feed our bodies is just as important. Being in my forties I have learned to work out differently, smarter and learn and listen to my body. I am a born sharer -sometimes with a little too much information! – but my goal is to share what I learn, share from my own mistakes and share real life experiences.
