Master of Arts in Teaching
ACE Certified Personal Trainer
TRX Group Fitness Instructor
ERYT-200 Yoga Teacher
Thai Yoga Therapist
I grew up in a vegetarian household with parents who raced every weekend. This sparked a lifetime of interest in nutrition, exercise, and overall holistic living. I spent 13 years teaching science to high school students, as well as being involved in coaching and managing sports programs. For the last 7 years, I have committed my time to functional science in the fitness industry. I enjoy pushing my physical limits through obstacle course race style training and embracing the healing power of Yoga. In my personal time I enjoy music, cooking, and reading current research in food, fitness, and other areas of science. My passion for science, holistic living and teaching is evident through the support I provide to my students and clients. My goal is to coach students and clients to understand their needs, interests, roadblocks, and goals. This provides for student and client growth, recovery, and success.

B.S. Kinesiology and Health
ACSM Certified Personal Trainer
CPR/AED Certified
With career experience ranging from corporate fitness, collegiate athletic training, personal training management, and group fitness, my passion for the fitness industry started after high school. I went to Iowa State University where I studied Kinesiology and taught group exercise in my spare time. Now, with over a decade of working in the fitness industry, I am still just as passionate and use my creative energy to work for a wellness company that values its members personal health and goals. My goals as a trainer are to work with people who need help making their exercise program fun and challenging. Whether your primary goal is weight loss, strength training, or just getting back to exercise after an injury, I want to make your process safe, progressive, and enjoyable.

LifeStories

Charlie S.
I'm proud to report LifeStart has helped me maintain my weight, reduce my blood pressure and sustain my overall health...
In February of 2002, I joined the LifeStart facility at 161 N. Clark Street to take advantage of the convenient location. Hoping that it would reduce one potential barrier to staying in shape.

Having this facility in the basement of the building -eliminated the hassle of getting to/from a workout, which forced me to get off my butt and take care of my body, even on the days when I didn't feel like making the effort!

Seventeen years later, I'm proud to report LifeStart has helped me maintain my weight, reduce my blood pressure and sustain my overall health. During this length of time, I've completed more than 75 running races, including 20 half marathons and eight, full marathons - my most recent, the Chicago Marathon for the sixth time this past October.

There are a lot of people who may be faster, stronger and more sculpted than me, but I can honestly say that I wouldn't have accomplished and maintained my personal results without help from LifeStart!

We have many more LifeStories to share. Click here to view more stories of LifeStart members that have overcome adversity and reached their health goals!

Do you have a LifeStory to tell? Click here to submit your narrative of how you achieved lasting change, for example, by losing weight, building strength, or reaching a health goal. If we feature your story, we'll give you a LifeStart insulated bottle and a LifeStart t-shirt. And we'll enter you in a raffle to win a free Apple Watch at the end of the year!

More importantly, your story could inspire thousands of other LifeStart members to supercharge their own efforts to live life well!
