About Me

I've been teaching fitness and nutrition coaching for over 28 years and I've been a KICK-ASS GRANDMA for 14 years. I'm an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Strong Nation Instructor and Nutrition Coach. My past Certifications from ACE, AFFA and IDEA also include PilatesGroup Exercise and Kickboxing.

I am also a Mom, Wife, Grandma, Sister, Daughter and Friend. All of these roles make me the person I am. I am not perfect - we are ALL flawed - and there are days when some of these roles make my life complete CHAOS! The simple reality is that I'm a busy, normal (mostly!) working mom with a LOT of responsibility. I, too, have days that push me to my limits. We ALL do!

I tell my clients all the time to strive to be better, not perfect! We work on celebrating small wins and positive self-talk. As women, we need to build each other up every chance we get! The power of positivity goes a long way!

My programs are all about being the best version of YOU that you can be, and to be a positive role model to the people that matter the most to you!

You may think that I just enjoy the word KICK-ASS. And I do! BUT, the reason I like it is because I believe KICK-ASS is what we should strive to be! And I don't mean that we should all strive to be grandma bodybuilders or kickboxers! To me, KICK-ASS means taking control of your life and your health and doing it in a way that is sustainable for a lifetime! It means being an active participant in your life instead of just watching others live theirs.

My KICK-ASS philosophy is centered around these concepts:

  • Know your WHY – What drives your need for self-improvement? And why now?
  • Ignite your Energy – Eat food that fuels your body and provides energy to move your body and improve your sleep.
  • Choose – Choose to have the courage to overcome things that are difficult for you. Slay your demons!
  • Kick-Start your Plan – An idea is only an idea until you make a plan and act on it.
  • Act – Act on your plan. What actions will you take to make changes for improvement?
  • Simplify your Life – Clean out the junk and make time for the things that matter the most to you.
  • Share! Share your experience. Self-improvement is contagious!
