I played tennis and did kickboxing but I wasn't able to lose the weight I gained in my twenties. My mother was a client and I saw her achieve her goals with amazing results. So I joined My Personal Trainer at 24. I'd never done strength training before and 20 minutes twice a week fit my school and work schedule. I lost 20 lbs* in 5 weeks! I believe in My Personal Trainer so much that I started working for them in 2011. It's amazing to see clients reach their personal weight goals and get stronger and healthier.
I was introduced to strength training in middle school through sports and decided to stick with it as a personal hobby not realizing that Id make a career of it in the future. After working in the corporate world for many years and realizing it wasn't for me, I decided to do a 360 with my career and become a personal trainer with MY PERSONAL TRAINER Inc. Over the past 10 years I've personally helped more than 1000 men and women achieve their fitness goals. I highly regard my profession, for the positive impact it has on our client's lives. Doctors treat those that have health problems, priests help with ones soul, and MY PERSONAL TRAINER improves or cures people's health problems. Currently I own and operate 3 successful locations and looking to further expand our healthy imprint on the Northeast Ohio area.
During high school I was introduced to personal training by working in the rehab center that was part of a major hospital group. I loved the interaction with the members and helping people achieve their goals. Since graduating I went through so many places trying to find that exact same environment with no luck. Five years ago I joined the My Personal Trainer team and there is no job so rewarding. Having clients past and present sharing their success stories to their friends and family is a great feeling and continuing the tradition to new members is very important to us.
Fitness has always been a big part of my life growing up. I've played competitive soccer since the age of 4 and played collegiately at Baldwin Wallace University. After the end of my competitive career, finding the motivation to continue to stay fit was a challenge. At BW I received a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science and minor in Sports Coaching. As a soccer coach, it has taught me how to give back and to push people/players to be their very best. Becoming a Personal Trainer has helped me continue my active lifestyle while teaching and learning from other trainers while building my experience as a new trainer. The possibilities are endless. Nothing is more rewarding than helping clients at MPT reach their fitness goals and achievements.
I'm a former collegiate athlete, I graduated from Notre Dame College with a premed major while playing basketball. I'm an exercise enthusiast, from strength training to biking. Along with being a personal trainer, I'm also a high school football coach. I'm passionate about helping individuals reach their fitness and health goals. I'm a firm believer in that anything is possible, especially through hard work and dedication. That being said, I'm a huge Cleveland sports fan till the day I die!
My interest in health and fitness started in middle school, when I began running cross country and track. I became more focused on strength training and eating a healthful diet in order to stay injury free and performing at my best. I ran throughout high school, and collegiately at The University of Toledo, where I studied Exercise Science. I continue to incorporate everything I have learned into my daily life. Now I'm focused on marathon training, while balancing strength training, and yoga. I hope to show others how beneficial exercise can be for their overall health-physical, mental, and emotional.
After years of debilitating back pain and a 30 pound weight gain, I knew I had to find my way back to health because in 1998 my husband was diagnosed with a progressive form of Muscular Dystrophy that placed more physical demands on me as a wife and mother. In 2015 I decided to take matters into my own hands after feeling pushed beyond what I knew were my limits in group classes at local gyms. With sensible eating and daily exercise at home, I listened to my body and the transformation began. In one year I lost 40 pounds and found myself stronger than I had ever been. Friends, family and coworkers noticed my transformation and wanted to know my secret. I simply shared that I made a LIFESTYLE CHANGE and intended to grow old gracefully and with strength. Their interest and encouragement prompted me to become certified as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine in April 2018. My passion is to help others become a better version of themselves. Those of us facing our middle (BEST) years have so much living yet to do. I am here to show you that strength, weight loss and lifestyle change CAN happen even if you're 50 . . .or more
I have been active all my life from cheerleading and gymnastics in my youth to playing tennis and strength/cardio exercise as an adult. After some major life changes, I became a client at My Personal Trainer and got myself back in in shape and on track with my God-given purpose in life. Now, in my 50's, I am happily employed as a personal trainer here, and I can relate to clients who are of the baby-boomer generation and those who are dealing with struggles in their lives.

I have four kids and they've grown up knowing and seeing through my example what an important part of life physical fitness is. I exercise regularly and I also love to run! I realized that when I talked about exercise, I was excited about it and decided in 2013 to turn my passion into my career and I became a NETA Certified Personal Trainer. In 2019, I was recertified as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and shortly after joined My Personal Trainer as a trainer!
