I have been very active all of my life. I played Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball. I was never a small girl, but never fat either. I had a Athletic build. As I was raising my children I always did different workout videos, walked with friends, even joined a gym. They all were a phase that seemed to dwindle through time. As life got busier so did I. I became the best cheerleader on the sidelines and I was the best Taxi driver ever. I spent years focusing on my children and less on me. Even though I stayed active it was not as much. As my kids grew up, both now in college, I realized I needed more. I was asked once “What do you like to do?”. That question was hard for me to answer. As I thought about it more I realized I enjoyed and loved exercising. I started coming to Club24 a few years ago with my friends and loved it. I found that for me exercise helped me just as much mentally as it did physically. I started the classes a year ago and really focused on learning and strengthening my body. That was when I knew I wanted to motivate people the way the trainers motivated me. So now I get to motivate, teach, push, and learn every time I train. I love pushing and inspiring my class because I am one of you. I battle the weight, the food, the motivation, and the daily stress. I have a full time job and I train. When I am at the gym whether I am in class working out or training all my stress is gone. It has become one of my happy places!
