A Little About My Background
I am forever in the pursuit of the Art of Well-Being. I started my health and fitness journey back in the early 80s, during college, as an aerobics instructor (big hair, leg warmers and headbands…oh yeah!!). I later became a personal trainer and competitive body builder…which eventually evolved into health club ownership, and a variety of jobs within the health and fitness industry, to include getting a degree in Applied Science Physical Therapy. However, as a military spouse (now retired Vet spouse), my license was only good in one state and that career was short lived due to moves.
Most recently, I have become a Certified Epigenetic and Human Optimization Coach, which means I can better help my clients (and myself) impact their health outcomes by applying precision strategies based on their personal genetic blueprint. It has been an incredibly eye opening and I’m so grateful this technology and information is now available.
Ever wonder why you feel like your spinning your wheels with some of your health and fitness efforts, or feel like you’re doing everything you’re supposed to do, but your body is not responding the way you wish? Feel like you’re constantly inflamed, bloated, achy, fatigued, etc? that’s where I can step in and we can take a deeper dive with targeted solutions.
At the age of 51, I entered the competitive arena again, as a masters figure and physique competitor, placing 1st-3rd in several contest and earning my Figure Pro card in an all natural, drug tested, international contest at nearly 53yrs old.
I thought for years that I would never be able to compete again due to bouts of debilitating rheumatoid arthritis. At times, I couldn’t even hold a coffee pot without using two hands, or go up and down stairs without the aid of the railing. The pain was intense. With strategic nutrition choices, modern medicine, and exercise, my condition has improved quite dramatically and my bloodwork shows me in remission.
Optimal health is a balancing act, and I have found being proactive with my health has been much better than chasing it. Inflammation is no joke and it pops up in many forms/diseases and is the number one ager.
I am not only passionate about optimizing my own health, I’m passionate about helping others transform into a stronger happier healthier version of themselves and redefining how they age.
Being strong, happy and healthy has to be intentional as we age. We took those things for granted in our youth, but as we mature and health issues crop up, or life responsibilities cause us increased stress, we realize the value true health. Our nutrition needs change and we have to learn to manage our stress.
Strength, happiness, and health are the result of deliberate choices and habits. It all starts in the mind. Mindset can help you or hinder you in your desire to experience a more vibrant life.
To experience a more youthful aging process, I am emphatic about the importance exercising consistently; incorporating strength training, proprioception/balance, flexibility and including either HIIT/EPOC training or moderate cardiovascular exercises (depending on individual limitations and goals). Nutrition plays a vital role in obtaining health and fitness goals and slowing down the aging process. The proper balance of macro and micronutrients can accelerate fitness goals, and the adverse is also true, which may cause some people to get discouraged, feel fatigued and give up on their pursuit. It’s critical to be smart about how our “right now” choices will affect our future self. Bad habits will eventually catch up through disease, obesity, fatigue, digestive issues, emotional health problems, etc., and then we have to chase our health to try to get our bodies back in balance. Medicine may be required to help with some of the symptoms, but is certainly not the cure. We need to take charge of our health and not just rely on medicine to ease our ails because we are too lazy to change our habits for our own good.
Be proactive, be intentional about choices to have quality of life by remaining physically independent throughout the aging process. By all means, try to avoid having to depend on someone else to wipe your butt.
I’ve gained extensive knowledge in the health and fitness field through scholastic education, over 40 years of experience and most of all, my insatiable quest for more knowledge and personal growth. I am excited to share information and guide other women (and men) towards their own healthy transformations. Exercise, proper nutrition and positive mindset are the fountain of youth (and NOT in that order). KEEP FIGHTING GRAVITY and giving GRATITUDE, my friends!!
