My true love for fitness came later in life. I had raised two children and still had one in high school when I went searching for health and fitness. During my busy years as a working mom, I did your average walking, treadmill, elliptical, and aerobics workouts, but I knew I needed and wanted more.
I joined a local fitness center approximately six years ago. I wanted to learn more about healthy eating, and previous injuries made me value proper exercise technique/form, so I started right away with the personal training packages.
Working with some great personal trainers, I dropped 30 pounds in my first year there. I started with the basics, moved into higher intensity and endurance training, added weight lifting, and then became interested in kettlebells. I joined kettlebell classes with Steph at Performance in early 2012, and I have been training with Steph and Cara ever since.
I am a very active person and my love for exercise and beliefs about how kettlebells can benefit me and others have led me to a new journey in life — becoming a kettlebell instructor through Strongfirst. I am looking forward to sharing this new knowledge and teaching others at Catalyst Strength.
