"Teaching and educating clients will always be a passion of mine.

    In my free time I'm a single mom working on raising three kids and teaching them the beauty of health, what it feels like to be healthy and how to make it a part of their daily routine. We have fun too.... Hiking, ice skating, biking, skateboarding and just going outside and getting dirty!

    Credentials

    • ACE Certified Personal Trainer

    For Nigel it started with soccer. As a kid he loved it, but was very skinny and was pushed around a lot. After a lot of frustration, he resolved to get stronger. When you start to lift weights for the first time in your life, you get rapid progress, we call these newbie gains. "When I started to see newbie gains that early on, I was very excited. While the improvement in strength and performance were thrilling, much more exciting to me was the boost in confidence off the field I received! I started walking up taller and feeling better about myself. As a kid who struggled with confidence and self-esteem, working out became priceless to me." "I now get to teach what I have learned at Fitness Together. I take great satisfaction in being in this role that can make a small difference in someone's life."

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time, I like to read, take photos, play with technology and attempt to lift heavy things.
