My clients tell me the best thing about working with me is not exceeding their fitness goals, increasing the strength and definition of their bodies, or receiving daily complements on their new physiques. To a one, they tell me the best part of working out with me is Because I believe in them! And I find a way, using a tough, disciplined, fun, progressive and powerful approach, to get them to believe in themselves. And once that happens, the sky's the limit!

I grew up dancing and acting in the great city of Chicago and then relocated to NYC to follow my artistic dreams. For the past 15 years I have been a professional dancer, actor, trapeze artist, fitness model, Pilates instructor and personal trainer in New York City and around the world. I've had the honor and pleasure of guest starring as a personal trainer/witness on NYC's Law&Order SVU and a zany spin instructor on AWTY?, posing as the principal fitness model for various training websites, teaching group classes for NYC's top fashion design companies and training some of our most beloved celebrities.

My personal training clients have run the gamut from Wall St. barons to new mommies, Cirque du Soleil acrobats to celebrities. I've seen every body type, every fitness level, and every excuse you can think of.

There is no certification, though, for the thing that gets my clients out of their bed or off their couch, and that is this: the power of positivity and passion for life! I've got it in spades and I infuse it into each and every rep. I help my clients shed a lifetime of negative messages, both from within and out, to achieve the things they thought they couldn't do. Our workouts help them define their muscles and what it means to be their best self, every day. By following my integrative, progressive, take-no-prisoners-but-keep-em-laughing approach, they can achieve anything from fitting into their skinny jeans, to changing the world!

QUOTE:  Define yourself.
FUN FACT:  I ran away with the circus! Literally. Cirque du Soleil is an elite corps of acrobatic athletes who work hard and play hard. I learned from my peers every day, while developing an approach to fitness
