It’s always been about empowering people. To show, teach, give people the tools to make their life better - to feel more in control. Strength and good health breeds self-confidence and independence that becomes part of your everyday life. It’s a pretty powerful feeling.
I’ve worked in the medical field for decades and find the transition to coaching, athletics, health and fitness to be a natural evolution of my fascination with the human body. As a coach, I am inspired to see athletes putting in the work to meet their athletic goals as much as I am seeing how increased strength and fitness positively effects member daily activities.
A late bloomer to competitive sports, as a Masters Athlete I’m loving competition and the highs and lows of the training process. As a parent, spouse, employee, volunteer, daughter, just to name a few of my other roles – I want to achieve optimal health and longevity to keep up with the demands of life. Just like you.
Getting strong(er) and achieving good health takes time. Let’s get started.
