The Journey to Becoming an Instructor

I want to make a personal investment in my fitness while helping others meet their fitness goals. Over the past 5 years, I consistently challenged myself and exceed goals that I never dreamed I would accomplish. Fitness has taught me the powerful statement: "The Mind Achieves What the Mind Believes." Since I have become a Les Mills Grit and CXWorx Certified Instructor, I make a daily goal to provide the participants in my class the most fun, yet challenging workout every class.
