    • Specialist n Fitness Nutrition

    While working and traveling over twenty years in the beauty business for Lancome and her building own artistry company, she decided to get her personal training certification because people would come to her for fitness and nutrition advice. “Exercise has always been my passion and a huge part of my life. I have been running, lifting, coaching volleyball and surfing since my late teens. I’ve always believed our bodies are one of the few things in life we can control, so we should take the best care of them. I truly believe exercise is a catalyst to a healthy, happier mind and lifestyle and hope that I can be a part of that change in every person I train. My goal as a fitness trainer is to have people leaving their workout feeling better and more empowered than when they came in. I'm thrilled to be here at Fitness Together."

  • I have been working out at FT for a couple of years and it has made a dramatic difference in my health. I no longer need hip surgery and I am able to dance and hike again.

  • The high quality training and nutrition advice at Fitness Together has helped me reach my fitness goals. I’ve lost 20 pounds and have a BMI of 22.8!

  • Friendly people who care about helping you achieve your goals. FT helped me prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail at age 65. If you have the will, FT will show you the way.

  • I started working out after having breast cancer and heading to osteoporosis. My primary goal with FT was to increase bone density. I now have normal bone density.
