I joined Get in Shape for Women in 2009 just after the Acton studio opened because I was interested in their model, wanted to lose a few pounds and needed a change. In 3 months, I lost 15 pounds while toning my body and gaining strength and endurance. I loved the program and especially the lead trainer who at the time was none other than our own Tiffany!
Fast forward to March, 2011 when I retired and was trying to figure out what I wanted to do in this next phase of my life. By chance that the Acton GISFW was looking to hire a part time personal trainer and this seemed like the perfect fit. I spent 4 months studying with the National Academy of Sports medicine (NASM) and earned my certification in personal training (CPT) in September, 2011.
In the past few years I have enhanced my fitness back round by taking the NASM Women’s Fitness Specialization and the National Personal Training Institutes (NPTI) Suspension (TRX) and the Kettlebell Weight Training Certification. Also, I took the Shaw Academy’s Personal Nutrition course as well as the NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialization (FNS) and the NASM Behavior Change Specialist Certification. I get a great sense of satisfaction helping women from 18-80 transform their lives through exercise, nutrition and accountability. I have truly found my dream job!
I received my degree in Exercise Science from Indiana University and hold a personal training certification from the American Council on Exercise (ACE). With over twenty years of experience in the fitness industry, I have worked as a group fitness instructor, personal trainer, fitness specialist, and manager. It is my belief that you should train hard, relative to your fitness level, giving 100% of what you have to give to your workout – to yourself. It is my goal to make each workout rewarding and to empower my clients to feel accomplished and confident. I am here to help each client push beyond their current abilities and achieve a higher level of personal success.
