“MAKE YOUR MESS YOUR MESSAGE” – Robin Roberts.  I encourage, believe in, love, take pride, strengthen and admire every client I have. This job is what I was born to do. Love what you do, do what you love. I do!  I also love to eat!

I have completed numerous 5k’s, 10K’s, more triathlons than I can remember, eleven marathons, and Ironman Wisconsin. I wish I could say I was “my kind” of healthy for all those events. The truth is, I overused food that was not beneficial for the races at hand.

I am no nutritionist or physician. I am just someone that has figured it out for myself through trial and error. I am just someone that got tired of changing clothes every season and took back her life. I WAS YOU!

Five years ago, I left my Kindergarten teaching position of 15 years to follow my passion as a full-time personal trainer at Louisiana Athletic Club, Alexandria, La. I have never looked back and never regretted my decision.

Running and CrossFit are my personal passions for fitness. These two activities feed my spirit and my soul. They keep me sane, competitive and motivated. This moves me. What moves you? Hopefully, through this journey, we can find out.

Through this journey, my goal is to show you strength in the good, bad, and ugly of yourself, your nutrition, your fitness, your successes, your gains, your environment, your friends and your family. We can agree to disagree. I don’t expect you to agree with everything I say or do. This is what makes us great. Let’s follow this path together and learn to be STRONG!
