I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I specialize in Russian Hardstyle Kettlebell Training (StrongFirst Team Leader) and women's strength training. I am also a Black Belt in Kung Fu, and the 9th woman and the lightest and smallest to date to complete the Iron Maiden Challenge (a 53lbs Pull-up, Pistol Squat, and Press), a certified Spin Instructor, as well as certified to train the pregnant and post-partum client. I have been working full-time in the Fitness Industry for over 16 years. I made a drastic career change and left my job as an IT Consultant to pursue a career in fitness and I never looked back. Working in an office did not suit me as I have been an athlete all of my life. I was a ballet dancer for 23 years and then decided to hang up my ballet shoes to study Kung Fu. I obtained my black belt in Kung Fu in 2009 which, next to training and testing for my RKC™ Instructor Certification, was one of the hardest accomplishments that I have ever achieved. I inspire clients every day to incorporate and stay with their fitness routines by setting realistic goals and by keeping their training functional, interesting and challenging. I swear by kettlebell training and strength training kettlebell training, as kettlebell training and strength training not only strengthened and changed my body, but also my mindset.
