My Story

I am a Certified Personal Trainer.  I am a Health & Fitness Life Coach.  I am a Fitness (mainly Turbo Kick) Instructor.  I am a Mother.  I am a Wife.  I am a Daughter.  I am a Sister.  I am a Motivator.  I am here to help you!

About Me:
I’m a mom of a tomboy princess, a wife to a Blackhawk Pilot in the Army, a personal trainer/health & fitness coach/group fitness instructor.  In December 2008 I gave birth to the most amazing little girl, however, I might have lost the weight of a child, but I didn’t lose the weight of all the pizza and donuts I consumed throughout the 9 months lol.  I am 5’5 and have never really been overweight, but was never really “healthy” either, so when I got pregnant I used it as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted.   

As a result I gained 70 pounds!!!  When I left the hospital I weighed 180lbs and it stayed that way for about 4 weeks, until I started P90X with my Dad.  Little did I know that him introducing me to that workout would absolutely change my life.  We did the 90 days I was down a grand total of 40 pounds and I was SO happy.  I wasn’t at my goal weight just yet, but I definitely had confidence back and could start feeling muscle for pretty much the first time in my life.  I just continued to do P90X and adding spinning classes for cardio.  

Shortly after in 2009 we moved to Kansas and because of moving into a new house and getting settled with a 7 month old, I did absolutely NO working out.  As a result, I gained 10 pounds back and I was up to 148.  That’s when I started Turbo Jam and lost 15 pounds.  AND I WAS BACK!   

In Jan 2010 I made the leap to become and health and fitness coach with Beachbody.  I was already using their products and I obviously believed in them, so I thought, why not help people meet their goals?!  Since then I have become Turbo Kick Certified and teach group fitness classes with that workout and workouts of my own that I put together at a local gym and am a Certified Personal Trainer.  I know what an emotional roller coaster weight loss can be and how you can just feel so alone sometimes, so I am VERY passionate about helping people in any way that I can.  Going through my own journey showed me how much I care about helping people and giving them a shoulder to lean on, especially one that can relate.
