Who am I?
I am a passionate person. I believe our bodies want to be well. I believe I can help you to create the best version of yourself. I am someone seeking to create the best version of myself. I find that in doing so, I am often on “the road less travelled”. I invite you to try it with me! This is how we create lives “worth telling a story about”!
I have been in the fitness industry since 1998. I have been inspired by many people along the way. I have an unwavering commitment to maintain my health and strength and energy so that I can help others to unveil and maintain theirs. It is about living, breathing and being vibrant and having a zest for life!
“Wisdom given by those who have justly shaped our life is worth passing on”
My family, faith, and friends have shaped my life. A few strangers have shaped my life too. And even, people I have only crossed paths with have shaped my life. All of what I have learned and who I am I attempt to pass on.
I began my wellness journey as an adolescent. We lived in a household that struggled with weight, enjoyed and celebrated food, and liked to play sports and exercise. Sounds familiar? I remember going to Nautilus gyms in New Jersey where I grew up with my mother. I remember doing exercise videos at 5am before school as my father was leaving for work. I swam and played water polo through high school and I took up running in college. I struggled with my weight and knew that in order to maintain a healthy weight, I had to keep moving!
An amazing husband, two awesome kids, my supportive mother, a friend who never gives up on me, thousands of group exercise classes taught, personal training in my garage, and now you…
ALL THESE THINGS have led me here…to The Energy Lab. Here we are: a dream that began in 2006 with a notebook full of visions about a community of like-minded individuals experiencing “more than a workout”, but a way of life.
What do I love to do the most? Inspire people, create change, challenge comfort zones. Whether that happens in a training session, or a cycling class, I love it! I often see it in Pilates sessions and TRX training. I feel it when I am on the bike with a group and we collectively experience the flow. I love the teamwork created from bootcamp and our SEAL training and PMA Lab experiences. I have seen people help each other up, mentally, physically, and emotionally. The warmth in my hands and feeling of energy from a group playing t’ai chi when the moment of flow happens and the observations as bodies MELT after a MELT roller experience ~ I love!
