Qualifications: Certified by AFAA. A Firm instructor for over 13 years.
Personal History: I've always been active in sports. Fitness and health come second nature to me. I couldn't imagine not being active! I turn into a big grump if I can't get some sort of movement in everyday! I'm a hair stylist and it's important that I'm in my best shape, because I stand all day and it's very stressful on your body.
I have always been active in sports, dance and music. This is a lifestyle that I have maintained into my adult years and I could never live any other way. I believe in taking time for myself to unwind and focus, which is where The FIRM comes in. I have been a Master Instructor with The FIRM since 1992. I love the people and I especially love to help others. I like to help FIRM Believers achieve their goals, no matter what their goals might be. And, I believe that I surround myself with people of a similar nature. I tend to push myself hard to accomplish the things that I don't think I am able to and I like to pass on this motivation to my friends and family, as well as FIRM Believers.
Workout Philosophy: My one secret that I would like to share with all The FIRM Believers is that we were all beginners at one point and as time progresses you will be amazed at how strong and vital you feel after just a few FIRM workouts. Keep going — it only gets better!
