I began my fitness journey when I joined Revolution Training 5 years ago. I was immediately drawn to the family-like environment and was introduced to a new style of fitness through the variety of classes that are offered such as boxing, boot camp and strength training. If I wasn’t motivated to workout, I knew that attending one of the classes would give me the push I needed. I’ve always had a passion for helping people and luckily I was offered an opportunity to teach an all women’s strength training class. My class offers women of all fitness levels a way to challenge themselves, reach their goals and have fun! As of February 2019, I will also be a certified Yoga Instructor.
