Post 70.3 Half-Ironman!! Such an amazing day!

I am an NCCPT Certified Personal Trainer with certifications in TurboKick© and Indoor Cycling Instruction. I hold a M.Ed in Recreation,Park, and Leisure Studies from the University of Minnesota- School of Kinesiology. Two years ago the Northern Grrrls Boot Camp was established with some fantastic ladies and we’ve just kept on growing!

My goal is to provide fun and effective fitness programs that improve your overall fitness level while providing you with the positive support, encouragement, and the proper workouts to help you attain your goals! I absolutely believe that whatever goal you have, it is attainable. Investing in your health boosts confidence, especially when you reach up to the challenge, seize it and surpass your own expectations!  I believe in my athletes and their abilities and seeing them succeed is such a rewarding and positive experience.

I enjoy helping people discover the joy of racing whether they are a beginner or experienced athlete. Over the past 4 years I have coached several runners who successfully completed their first races or set new personal records while igniting their passion for distance running. I also train athletes for the Iron Girl duathlon and provide guidance and workouts to those looking to compete in a triathlon.  I have completed 29 half-marathons, 3 marathons, and a 70.3 half-Ironman. When not running I can be found cooking, spending time with family, ‘playing’ with my amazing fitness friends, and competing in sprint triathlons and duathlons all over the Midwest   My ultimate goal is running a half-marathon in every state ( I’ve got 7 states and Puerto Rico so far!).
