Qualifications: Certified by the AFAA, ACE, IFTA, AEA, and AAAI. Was IFTA Instructor of the Year in 2002.
Personal History: I started as a fitness model. I began working out after college (once a 36" waist, now 30"). Before I knew it, I was asked to teach classes. From there, I began presenting at fitness conventions.
Workout Philosophy: I start each day with meditation and affirmations focusing on personal fitness goals and trying to never miss a day of some fitness activity. Although I have personal goals, I am so thankful to be able to help others reach theirs. I never take for granted the opportunities given!
Sucess Story: Recently, I received an email from Pattie in Florida who has been working out to my videos. She explained that she was once very overweight. Now, she has not only lost weight, but is now a Fitness instructor (kickboxing is her favorite). She called me 'her inspiration.' It melted me - I'll never get over the feeling of being able to make a difference in people's lives.
