I am a firm believer in keeping fit & healthy. I have been a Spa Lady member for about 20 years and have always been very active enjoying many sports and activities, from water skiing to downhill skiing and swimming to biking, I'll try anything that makes me move. Last year I put three sports together & competed in the World Masters Triathlon event (swim 1.5K, bike 40K, run 10K). I came home with "GOLD".
I have been teaching group fitness since Sept 2000. I started teaching bootcamp (AT) then moved on to teach, BFL, Step, SSP, and am presently teaching Sprint Circuit, Spa Ball & Body Shop at the Heritage location. I love teaching group fitness. To see the smiles on your faces as you push yourself to your limit or as you master a new move, and as we cool down the look of accomplishment and satisfaction that fills the room. To hear your stories of weight loss, strength gained, the smaller sizes you are wearing, how much better you sleep, you feel healthier, you eat better, how much you LOVE coming to classes and most of all, that you feel so good about yourself. If you feel good about yourself everything else falls into place.
Members asked "what keeps me motivated and where do I get my energy." -I don't take my body & health for granted. It is up to me to keep it healthy and active no one else can do it for me. (At 5 yrs old a bike accident should have killed me, Dr.s amazed at recovery, developed severe asthma at 20yrs old refused to give in to it, kept active, 15yrs later Dr.s can's believe remission.
-Attending fitness & nutrition conferences/courses, keeps me fresh & up to date on whats new.
-I can't stop getting older, but I can choose to stay young, mind, body & soul.
**YOU, the members, your enthusiasm, energy and smiles. The more you want the more I will give. There is much truth in the saying "energy breeds energy". Just come to one of my classes, you'll see!!
I leave you with this, "The BODY achieves what the MIND believes". "ACHIEVING starts with BELIEVING" Believe in yourself, trust yourself.
