“Hi! I came to Bayshore Fit with a very diverse athletic and fitness background. It all started with an open gymnastics class at age 5 that evolved into a 10-year competitive streak that allowed me to get all the way up to Level 9. I credit gymnastics to this day for helping me in all other aspects of fitness and sports (discipline, mobility, body awareness, confidence, and the drive to be the best I can be). I also have 10+ years of Cheerleading including All-Stars, high school, and at the collegiate level at the University of South Florida.”
“My passion for fitness and wellness resulted in a fulfilling career change 15 years ago. I’ve been a certified Spin Instructor with Mad Dogg Athletics; a Group Fitness Instructor with AFAA (Aerobics & Fitness Association of America) and am currently a certified Personal Trainer with AFAA. One of my favorite aspects of being a trainer is helping people feel inspired instead of intimidated by gym equipment so they gain confidence. My individualized programs are encouraging and effective for all ranges of ability. In addition to private training sessions, I lead the Lunch Crunch classes.”
