Qualifications: Certified by ACE in group exercise.
Personal History: My passion was to open my own boutique fitness studio in a time when big box fitness centers dominated the scene. For years, I had designed and followed my own workouts, blending high energy moves with poses from yoga and pilates. I would even hold my own “classes” for people on vacation to help scratch my passion itch. I knew the kinds of classes people wanted to take, and there was nothing out there like them.
Workout Philosophy: "Fitness and weight-loss go hand in hand" and "Helping people feel more confident and healthy through weight loss is my biggest passion." I didn't start Fusion to be a money-maker. I opened the studio to be able to share my way of life with people. If you want to see a transformation, you have to work hard. I want my clients to see results and strive to give them the best workouts I can. I am constantly changing the routines so the body doesn’t plateau from getting used to it.
Sucess Story: We do specific weight-loss bootcamps at the studio year-round. It always inspires me to see the transformaion of women's bodies working hard on diet and exercise and the pounds melting away. The best part is that the ladies who do these camps together become fitness friends. Thye come to rely on each other for extra workouts and it's fun to see their relationships continue. Shawna Wright was our first "bootcamp" success story losing 57 pounds in 12 weeks! That earned her the front cover of KC Fit magazine ... key word being "earned!"
