Personal Trainer/Certified Crossfit Instructor/Coach/Mentor; Bilingual-spanish

Hi! I am Texas born but have spent the last 20 years in Colorado and love it. I have an amazing husband and four awesome kids ages 16,14,10, and 8. Three boys and one girl. I have loved competing and training in sports since I was 8 years old. I excelled as a long distance runner and cross country and track became my passions throughout middle school and high school. After college, I competed more in mountain races, 10K’s, sprint tri’s and Tough Mudders because I loved the ruggedness of those races and the adventure that went with them. In the Fall of 2011, a fellow training friend asked if I would consider coaching which led me to completing my Level 1 Crossfit certification. I have enjoyed coaching and competing as a crossfit athlete, and last year I competed on a team at the Crossfit Regional games. Crossfit fed my need for variety, intensity and healthy competition to push myself beyond what I imagined.

I love coaching men, women, young athletes to reach their fitness goals, look good and feel great. I love inspiring my own four kids to play sports, be active and eat healthy and I do much of that leading by example. I am committed to my clients and love encouraging each individual to build their strength, push themselves to reach their fitness goals and see results. I will work with anyone who is determined to work at their goals and want to see change. I value and love the opportunity to motivate, inspire, encourage and challenge. I had the privilege to volunteer coach season 4 of ABC’s Extreme Weight loss participants and enjoyed being a part of their fitness journey.

In regards to nutrition, as owner of Body and Home Health, I educate/coach others on quality proven supplements to increase energy, muscle recovery, cellular repair and optimize one’s foundational health. Having good health is a blessing and worthy of one’s sacrifice, time and investment. See you in the gym!
