"I am very passionate about fitness! Fitness is more than a sport, it is a community that brings people together to promote quality of life. My goal is to inspire people to be better through education and motivation. I earned the opportunity to become a Physical Therapist but after realizing that I could impact the lives of others through fitness I changed directions. I tried working in a few "Globo" Gyms managing the personal training department, but found that it was greatly influenced by things other than improving health. In 2010 and began working at a "Box" in 2011 where I worked on becoming better at coaching and instructing. In December of 2013, my business partner and close friend Garris Gonce and I opened LMCF. During that time, I was asked to come back to the Northeast side and open a gym to continuing coaching people that had been on a fitness journey with me since 2011. That's when we opened Fitness 535. I have had the pleasure of coaching several athletes, from professional to "average joes". I enjoy seeing everyone make improvement! From a PR in a Snatch to just being able to get up off the floor. Your individual success and determination is what bring me to work each day. It has been a blessing and I owe it all to my Savior Jesus Christ."

Present Coach at Fitness 535
I have always been active! The types of activity have varied over the years from competitve cheerleading and gymnastics to running, kickboxing, and yoga. In 2013 I was introduced to my now husband and the world of CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting. Being a competitive person by nature, I was hooked immediately. It was such an awesome way to track personal progress and seeing results while getting to be involved in a unique community and seeing others achieve their own goals. I realized quickly that I wanted to be apart of that! I wanted to be apart of others journeys. After a couple of years of watching/learning from Bo and studying on my own I went on to achieve my Level 1 CrossFit Certification and coach on my own! It truly is a pleasure to not only educate, train, and inspire others but helping them become a better version of themselves. Whatever that may look like.
In July of 2014 Bo and I found out that we would be parents!!! After continuing to "crossfit" throughout my pregnancy and then returning to the gym 3 weeks after the birth of our son in March of 2015, I feel like I have even more to bring to anyone wanting to change their life or for the person thinking that change might not be possible. IT IS!!! The Lord has blessed me with this opportunity and I am thankful for the position He has placed me in.
