So let me tell you a little about why I truly love fitness. Exercise literally saved my life. As a young girl I had real self esteem issues. I searched for different ways to try to feel better about myself with no success. The 92 pound 18 year old girl in the white hatted herself. I was obsessed with being skinny and food was the enemy. I truly believed that if I "just lost 5 more pounds" I would like me and be happy with what I saw in the mirror. Then I met heavy weight training and bodybuilding and realized
-food is fuel.
-It is a way to nourish your body, to help you achieve your goals.
-It is not the enemy or a lost friend.
-The replacement for a lover or a love lost.
Now I love me, love my gains, love my fat, and love what I see in the mirror. That's what I try to inspire in others, the idea that weight training can help fix many of the self-esteem problems we hide. The potential to love what you see in the mirror starts with finding what you love about you and focusing.
It might just help you heal you. As as I always say "trust me your worth the work."
I am a mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, and granddaughter first and foremost. The gym is something I do for me that makes me better for all of them. Fitness should be about feeling good and being healthy not about being skinny. My favorite part about working at the gym is making fitness fun. We all have our struggles with fitness and coming together as a group makes it easier to overcome and defeat them. I feel my job is to help each member feel better about themselves for themselves.
I'm a mom of 4 wonderful active girls. One of my strongest passions is fitness! A healthy mind, healthy body and healthy soul all work together to create the best you. Muscles are sexy! Come lift with me...and create the best you!
My journey into a yoga practice began about six years ago when I decided to take a yoga class, just to see what all the rave was all about. Upon stepping off of the mat that night, it became clear that yoga was something that I was meant to find. Since that day, I have been changed, one breath at a time.
In September of 2015 I began a 200 hour yoga teacher training with the Twin Cities Yoga Collective. Upon completion in February, I became certified to assist others who are seeking the same things in which I discovered through a vinyasa yoga flow.
Through teaching yoga, my hopes are first and foremost to make others aware of the linkage between the breath and movement, and aware of how the breath alone can carry us through any challenge, on and off of the mat. Secondly, through intelligent sequencing of postures and playfulness, I hope to help others discover a connectedness between mind, body and soul.

“I have always loved being active and strive to live a healthy lifestyle by maintaining a healthy diet and exercising. I have two wonderful children and want to make sure I set a positive example for them! I took my first POUND fitness class about a year ago and instantly fell in love!
