It’s the simple things in life that really are the most important – good health, loving relationships and meaningful spirituality. I’m extremely passionate about fitness and I love to push myself to my limits.
I have a really amazing husband. He’s a selfless man and dedicated father. Together we have two fantastic boys with dynamic and contrasting personalities who always keep me on my toes. Keelan is my peaceful phlegmatic and compassionate soul. Jackson is my actor and comedian and always keeps us laughing. My boys are my love and they are what motivate me to work hard each day and to be a better person. I learn so much from all three of them every single day.
Being healthy and living a very active life are not just my lifestyle, it’s who I am and what I represent. I believe anything worth having is worth the effort! When it comes to fitness, I’m a very goal-oriented individual, always looking for a new challenge. Hard work and dedication will produce fantastic results, thus improving your overall quality of life.
Prior to May 2010, I would have considered myself fit and healthy. I did the things I was supposed to do. I ate healthy foods. I went to the gym, ran and attended as many yoga classes as I could possibly fit into my schedule. But my clothes were tight and I was not motivated by my workouts.
My brother suggested I try the Beachbody INSANITY workout, since it was designed for people like me, those who like a kick in the butt workout at a high intensity level. At first I was skeptical and my ego told me I’m better than home dvd workout programs. I’d witnessed the success he had with P90X, so I agreed to give it try.
I started INSANITY on May 1, 2010 and was immediately humbled. It wasn’t just another home DVD. This was by far the hardest workout I had ever done, and I’ve tried them all. I decided that if I was going to do it right, I was going to completely commit myself to the program and the nutrition plan. I kept a food journal and followed the workouts and nutrition plan as if I’d designed them. I immediately started to lose weight. In all my previous workouts, I would either maintain or gain, but I never lost weight. I would always fall into the trap that as long as I was working hard, it didn’t matter the amount I was eating.
After Month One, I lost seven pounds and noticed quite a difference in my waistline. It became tighter as my pants became looser. At the end of Month Two, I was down 10 pounds and lost even more inches off my waist. My body fat dropped 4-5% and it completely changed my mindset about home dvd programs.
Being a runner, the interval training helped me get faster and my endurance increased dramatically. I started taking Shakeology in September 2010 and my weight once again started to drop. I’ve gone down a size in my pants. I have so much energy throughout the day, even after a hard workout and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.
It has changed my attitude, my spirit and motivated me to be very successful in all aspects of my life. I’m in the best shape of my life at age 37. I’ve been so inspired by both my brother and my success that I became a coach to motivate others to be successful as well. My brother presented me with a wonderful gift when he introduced me to Beachbody. It has truly changed who I am.

I will not only help you find the right program that fits your schedule and lifestyle, but I will be here to inspire, motivate and hold you accountable.
