It’s an absolute joy to see my clients go through life changing transformations, and it is why I love what I do!

I am passionate about preventative wellness and how creating a balanced and healthy lifestyle boosts confidence, enhances vitality, and contributes to the reduction of chronic disease. I founded my business in Hawaii, which was my home for 10 years, and have been fortunate enough to reestablish in DC. Over the last decade I’ve spent thousands of hours designing and implementing a broad range of individualized, group exercise, and nutritional programs.

My method of training bridges the gap between Pilates and functional training techniques. You will find these fusions in all of my classes and personalized fitness programs, and will always leave feeling like you got a unique and challenging workout! Nutrition and health coaching is also a huge part of the equation, and it is offered for every individualized program.

When people ask what type of workout will enable the best results, I tell them the key is variety. My own workouts include Pilates, Yoga, interval training, hiking and running. It never gets boring and I make sure my clients feel the same way. The key is creating a routine that is also fun for you…something that you will look forward to and truly make you happy!
