AREA OF SPECIALTY:
Flexibility, balance, core strength (from pilates), and dance.
I have been active with dance since the age of five, I even went to college to learn about dance. While there, I learned about anatomy, dance theories, and I became certified in pilates mat, reformer, and anatomy. I also interned and taught classes at Studio B Pilates studio in Stevens Point while working on my certifications. After I graduated I went to NWTC and became a certified personal trainer through WITS. After becoming certified I interned at XO Fitness in De Pere and then found my place at the YMCA as a full time wellness staff and Personal Trainer.
My philosophy is that Movement is Essential. Everyone needs to move in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, coming from the world of dance I understand that everyone moves differently and their bodies change daily. I work hard to make sure that my client’s workout programs fit their bodies each time I see them.
MY PASSION FOR FITNESS COMES FROM:
I have always been active. I started with dance lessons at the local YMCA in Neenah, WI and from there I was hooked on dancing. I didn’t truly discover my passion for fitness and one-on-one training until I found out I had scoliosis at the age of 18. I turned to pilates to help strengthen my core and improve movement in my spine. I not only noticed a difference in my dancing, but my daily life as well.
MY PROUDEST MOMENT WITH A CLIENT:
I recently had one female client who was in a boot camp class of mine and we took measurements at the beginning of the 4 week session. She lost two inches off of her waist and said that she felt like she was making progress in her wellness journey.
MY FAVORITE QUOTE OR MOTIVATIONAL SAYING:
“Dreams don’t work unless you do.”
