I was a corrections officer for 10 years and during that time I had to keep my strength and endurance up which I did by training at a local gym. Once I started lifting and getting stronger I got hooked and started entering bench press contests and running 5ks and never looked back until I retired.
At that time I had 2 kids and my gym days were put on hold. I became a person I didn't recognize and knew I had to get back to the gym. I went and got certified as a personal trainer, started teaching classes and then was introduced to CrossFit and got hooked.
When the opportunity came to teach kids I jumped on it (it made sense since I had two young ones at home). There is nothing more empowering than teaching young kids that they can be strong and fit and then watching them do box jumps or burpees. Habits start young and if we can instill in kids that fitness is a part of life they will continue with it as they get older!
I bring fun and motivation to my classes and let the kids know, especially the girls, that it is ok to be strong and fit!
I have trained many sports teams including Meriden Raiders Football, Meriden Hurricanes Softball, Meriden Shock Softball, Southington Lightning Softball, and Meriden Soccer Club.
My personal motto: You were born with the ability to change someone’s life, don’t ever waste it! And of course "If you still look cute at the end of your workout, then you didn’t work hard enough." ROCK ON!!!!
