Fitness Certifications: Mad Dogg Indoor Cycling, Afaa Group fitness, American Red Cross CPR
what i like most about fitness classes: Hearing the stories. Hearing that I was part in changing someone's life. Being able to inspire while doing something I love is incredible. I've heard stories about weight loss, about all the physical benefits of exercise but what is so humbling to me is when someone reaches out and says "you have no idea how much I needed you today". A simple quote, or a story I told during class changed their whole day. To me Echelon is so much more than a workout class. We have truly created a family.
advice for new students: Do not take yourself to seriously. Yes, competition is fun and goals are important. But it is way more important to feel good when you hop off the bike. I always want riders to feel more confident and happier than when they started.
my guilty pleasure: Chocolate Chip cookie dough and parmesan cheese crisps. Not usually in the same sitting but probably going to try that later.
