Birth Place
Kokomo, Indiana
A smile is a wrinkle that should never be removed

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
America has more to eat than any other country in the world
and more diets to keep us from eating it!

My advice: DON’T DIET! Throw away the scale! Make healthy eating a lifestyle! Remember what Momma always said,
Eat your fruits and veggies!” Educate yourself on healthy habits and make exercise and good nutrition a way of life. Stay active by finding an exercise you enjoy, so that you will WANT to keep your body moving. Exercise should be a JOY, not a BURDEN

Set realistic goals! Do NOT expect overnight results. It took time to get the body you have now, it will take some time to achieve the body you desire. Learn to appreciate the body type you have and then make that body the best you can on a step by step, day by day basis! DON'T give up! Stay focused

I am committed to mentally, physically, and spiritually inspiring, motivating and challenging others to make fitness and nutrition a part of a healthy lifestyle that lasts a lifetime

My Philosophy: GET FIT! STAY FIT!
