The stress of college had me eating smothered, covered, chunked, scattered… and washing it down with white Russians… needless to say that did not fare well for my physique!  I started small, just by walking and eliminating cream sauce, cheese and fried food.  I was amazed how small changes worked!  Next thing you know I was run/walking… and finally just running (I’ve since completed 2 full marathons, over 20 halfs and tons of 5/10K’s)!  Group fitness and indoor cycling kept my cross training fun and after losing about 50 lbs.  I decided I’d love to be an instructor.  The rest is history.  I’ve been Fittour Certified as well as CPR/AED and First Aid for nearly 15 years.  Check out my high energy class and feel free to let me know your favorite song so I can add it to my playlist and come see what indoor cycling can do for you!!
