I am a certified Group Exercise Instructor with many years experience. I love to teach and motivate my participants to do the best that they can in class and help them succeed at their fitness goals. I currently teach RIP and Step Blast.
RIP – is a 60 minute barbell program for men and women of all ages and fitness levels.

I am a teacher by day and a wife and mother of two by night. Without any dance background, I have been teaching Zumba for 8 years.
Zumba is a very exciting and motivating atmophere with a variety of Latin, hip hop, and modern music. You’ll forget you’re working out with the sexy but simple moves to dance music like salsa, reggaeton, cumbia, and more. Best of all you don’t need any previous dance experience! It is fun and effective using interval training combining fast and slow rhythms for an aerobic workout. Some songs target your legs, abs, glutes and upper body. Other songs even incorporate kickboxing, belly dancing, and bhranga moves. In addition to all the fun you’ll have, you will burn calories, improve coordination ability, bone density, control blood pressure, improve oxygen level, and best of all….REDUCE STRESS!!! The workout is basically watch and follow. The moves are repeated often enough for you to catch on and they’re not complicated. The routines are repeated from week to week with additions every now and then to spice things up even more! You don’t need to worry about your shake and your shimmy…Zumba is done in the dark!

Kickboxing: Kick big time butt while burning serious calories, sculpting muscles and busting stress at the same time. For all you multi-taskers this cardio class is a must! Through kicks, squats, jabs and boxer shuffles, we will work arms, legs, abs and of course the butt. Come have a BLAST while working out. Your advanced, intermediate or beginner BUTT will be grateful that you did!
Boot camp: Combine cardio and strength intervals for a workout that brings results. Time is precious, so we’ll work smart, and target every muscle in every exercise. Lunges, push-ups, sprints work abs, legs, arms, minds and butts…we throw NOTHING away in this one! Advanced, intermediate and beginners thrive here. Everyone works at their own level for their personal bests. It’s the season of the BUTT, so get yours to this class and work it!

Graduated from Point Park University with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance and Business Management. She is certified through AFAA and has been a group fitness instructor for seven years. She teaches various formats including: RIP, PIYO, RIPPED, TRX, REVolution, PowerStep, BOOT, WAR, Barre, BodyFlow, BodyJam, and Sh’Bam. It has been most rewarding to me to inspire others increase their fitness levels while having a more positive outlook on life and the way they look and feel.
This total body, moderate to high intensity style program, utilizing weights, resistance and body weight, masterfully combines the components of R.I.P.P.E.D – Resistance, Intervals, Power, Plyometrics, and Endurance as the workout portion. The deliberate combination of RIPPED elements and how they are precisely organized in the class format provide the basis for the One Stop Body Shock System by stimulating both, different energy systems and muscles in each workout segment, changing the focus and activities every 6 to 9 minutes. It’s the combination that drives up your endurance and gets your body moving. All levels welcome.
A 60 min barbell program for able bodied men and women of all ages and fitness levels. Matching movement to music and using traditional strength training allows participants to work at their own level.
