Qualifications: Certified by AFAA.
Personal History: When I was 20 years old, I wanted to be a songwriter. So, I packed my bags and moved to Los Angeles with two songs and $800 in my pocket. I got into entertainment PR, but then I got fired. So I took a temp job at city hall in West Hollywood. When that job ended, the mayor referred me to a local fitness studio for a desk job. It was eight bucks an hour, but I could take free exercises classes -- I was immediately addicted! One thing led to another and, eventually, I started teaching my own classes.
Workout Philosophy: Suit up and show up! Do your best. Think positive. Focus on the goal. Don’t say “can’t.” Eat right and work hard. Don’t complain and love yourself.
