Qualifications: Certified by ACE, AFAA, Step Reebok, and the American Heart Association. A presenter for ACE and AFAA. Has presented at fitness conventions in the United States and around the world.

Personal History: My journey began in 1983 as an aerobic instructor. Since that time, I have worn many hats in the fitness industry, including exercise instructor, personal trainer, conference presenter, trainer of trainers, club manager, group fitness director, video star, producer & director of fitness DVDs, and writer for national and international fitness magazines.

Workout Philosophy: All movement is good. Life is too short to become dependent upon a particular exercise that doesn't bring you joy. My advice is to find the activities that you love and then stick with them. Let the joy of movement be your #1 motivator and then let the wonderful benefits of exercise take second place! This way, you will reap physical benefits from having fun!

Success Story: My favorite story is my mom. Her name is Bonnie and she had been very overweight all her life. At age 69, she finally decided to take some of my fitness and nutrition advice. She lost 80 lbs. before she turned 70 years old. She continues to maintain her slender self to this day. She is now 82 years old and she is leading a full and exciting life. She’s enjoying her eight children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren, and even a few great-great grandchildren! She is an inspiration to me and my seven siblings.
