Over the past five years, I have gone from someone who went to a few spin classes a week just to do something, to someone who has really come into her own through a true fitness journey and lifestyle change. Embracing fitness and what it could do from both my body and mind not only changed my view of my disability and myself, but also my view on life and how it should be lived.
In September 2012, with the help of some amazing fitness instructors and friends, I decided it was time to take the leap of faith and follow my burning passion to become certified to inspire others to own their lives and journeys through fitness. I became certified through AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) to teach group exercise classes.
I began subbing spin classes and started out teaching my own specially designed program for anyone who might have physical disabilities, limitations, or any other needs that might hinder them from participating in physical activity. Taught from a chair, this class focused on low-impact cardio exercises and total body strength training.
I now take and teach a variety of classes, including strength classes, cardio bootcamp, spinning, and P90x. I am always looking to share my fitness journey with others and help each other along the way.
