Personal Trainer, Instructor (Boot Camp, TRX, Row and tone, Kickboxing, Strengthen and Tone, Spin, Barre)
I am an Edgewood resident with an eight-year-old son, a four-year-old daughter and a passion for helping women feel great about themselves, their bodies, and the women around them who are struggling to do the same!
In 1998 I began my career as a personal trainer in Southern California. I worked at a large corporate gym and while I found the time I spent with clients incredibly gratifying, I struggled with the corporate bureaucracy and the ways it interfered with moving clients toward a healthy body and a healthy body image. Ultimately this led me to other career choices. However, I remained committed to fitness in my personal life in areas such as weight training, yoga, kickboxing, running, and pilates. In addition, I continued to learn about and keep up on the latest fitness trends in my spare time.
In 2011 I began taking small group training classes at a small local gym and fell in love with the concept of intimate groups working out together. Unlike large group fitness classes, this was just a small group of people participating in training collectively. I felt totally accountable to the group of women I came to know and love. When I found out the gym would be closing its doors, one of the other clients and I decided to begin our own business and maintain the tradition of building a tight community around challenging workouts. I got re-certified and picked up several new certifications in various areas. This was a huge leap of faith, as it required walking away from my PhD candidacy at Brown University and my teaching position at Stonehill College. Somehow though, it just felt right and I am a firm believer in the idea that the best turns in life are the unexpected ones!
