I’ve always had a competitive drive. Perhaps it began in childhood trying to keep up with my two brothers, who are on either side of me in years. I tried to be as good as them in baseball, playing with matchbox cars, and certainly faster than them running down the street.
Naturally, I tried many sports once I got to high school. Eventually I settled on volleyball and softball, which I continued during my first year at college.
My first job after college was doing full-time tree work. I pruned mature trees, which often required climbing them wearing a saddle and ropes – just picture it! (Sidenote: I overcame my fear of heights by making it part of my job.)
That was the most physically demanding work I’ve ever done…even harder than Saturday morning Gx4 with Ross!
You can find me pretty much all day every day on the fitness floor. I teach a variety of classes, but my special favorites are my Chair Stretch classes. Keep your eyes peeled for my next bootcamp, which starts right after Thanksgiving!
