The Journey to Becoming an Instructor

I have been a fitness and activity junkie my whole life.  I grew up as a dancer and was on the Dance Team at the University of Iowa.  After college I got into group fitness and finally took the leap to become a Body Pump instructor 2 1/2 years ago.  I was pregnant with my son at the time.  After the birth of our daughter, I decided to also get certified as a spin instructor.  I have had the opportunity to teach group fitness classes all over the country and even in Barbados!!! I am looking forward to CXWorx certification and so much more!  I love teaching and watching people progress in not only their strength, but also confidence in what they can really achieve.  What a wonderful gift to be trusted to assist someone in their wellness journey!  It is something that I will never take for granted.
