Fitness has always been important to me. Throughout my childhood it was my dad that got me moving. Whether it was mowing the lawn, going for long hikes or bike rides, he was the one who inspired me to be where I am today. Sometimes we need a push from another person to maintain our drive and get us on our feet each day. Today, I continue the hobbies that got me moving. I love to waterski, barefoot ski, hike and work out to maintain my overall fitness.
I want to be the one to inspire you like my dad did me. I want to be the one to push YOU. As your personal trianer, I will be here to motivate and educate you to be successful. From flexibility and core strength to functional training and bootcamps, I will help you achieve YOUR goals. Overall health and well-being require dedication and commitment. It's a lifestyle.
After attending a four-year program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, I love that I continue to learn while I teach others. With a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (the study of human movement sciences), it is rewarding to be able to apply my knowlege and help others reap the rewards.

Exercise has always been a part of my life and I'd love to make it part of YOURS! From soccer and ice hockey in high school and college, to yoga and Tai Chi later on, I've never stopped moving. I love to work out, and I want all of my clients to feel what it's like to have MORE energy, MORE strength and MORE flexibility at any age. I will help you achieve this with functional exercises, strength training and plenty of core and balance moves. I always try to keep the workouts challenging and fun. I am an NASM certified personal trainer.
In addition to training, I work out and I still play ice hockey. When I'm not running or skating around, I may be found cooking, reading or just hanging out with my husband and three children.
As a personal trainer at the Grafton Form & Fitness and Mequon Studio. I love to work with people that want to develop a positive relationship with nutrition and exercise. I am motivated when I see my clients achieve their goals and get the results for which they work so hard. I design safe, fun, and effective workouts that guarantee results.
Fitness has been a part of my life since I was young, so it didn't take long to know what I wanted to do when I grew up. In high school I was a two-sport athlete, playing volleyball and basketball. I went on to play basketball at Lakeland college, but soon transferred to University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

I believe exercise and fitness should be a priority in everybody's life. I have been active ever since I can remember. In high school I was a four-sport athlete competing in football, wrestling, track & field as a pole vaulter for which I was a 4-year letter winner, and baseball. Today I play softball, golf, waterski and weight train to keep my body healthy and strong. I bring my competitive attitude to training sessions to help you reach your goals and overall improve your quality of life.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology/ Exercise Science with a minor in Strength and Conditioning from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Throughout my four years at UW-O I worked with collegiate athletes (football, baseball, softball, basketball, track, wrestling and gymnastics) and enjoyed personal training experience with older adults, as well as youth athletes. I love the field that I chose because it constantly changes and challenges me to continue my education on a daily basis.

As an athlete my entire life, I like to think of everyone as athletes-in-the-making. From organized sports, to setting up an "unofficial" football match, physical activity fuels me. I have participated in almost every sport: soccer, football, basketball, volleyball, track, cross country, baseball, rugby, snowboarding, skateboarding, biking and rock climbing. But what matters is not what I have done in the past, but what we can accomplish in the present. The human body is remarkable and UNSTOPPABLE.
We are born with two fears in life: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Every other fear is in our minds. I know that the gym can be incredibly intimidating. My goal as a personal trainer is to make you feel comfortable when you walk in and accomplished when you walk out. Everyone visits the gym with different goals. My calling is to help you achieve yours with a plan that we create together and you execute. I will show you proper ways to exercise so that you can obtain maximum results. I take pride in what I do. Your success is my success. Train with me. Overcome your fears and allow me to show you how empowering fitness can be.
"Never say that you can't do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can't be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible." -- Mike Norton

I found my passion for health and fitness as an undergraduate studying Kinesiology. Growing up I didn't participate in many sports, but as a college student I dove into a variety of them such as martial arts, cycling and competitive speed skating. My Kinesiology degree and experience with different sports taught me the importance of technique and proper form to benefit from a regular training schedule. My training style allows me to help others understand their bodies so that they maximize their workouts without the risk of injury. Whether you're training for a competitive sport or simply interested in improving your strength and wellness, my focus on teaching body awareness alongside strength and conditioning will help you reach you goals.

I've always been active with a high motor, but my interest in exercise really began to develop during high school. I was a three-year letter winner in football and wrestling, at which I received several accolades. I later earned a scholarship to play football at Minnesota State University-Mankato.
My passion to help others improve their lives combined with my ten years experience in strength and conditioning made it a no-brainer that personal training was the right path for me.
Whether you want to lose weight, have more energy or gain muscle and increase strength, I will work with you to customize a simple and effective fitness plan to help you achieve the changes you want.
In addition to personal training, I also work with the Parkinson's Disease exercise group, train athletes in the Parisi Speed School and teach group exercise classes and boot camps at Form & Fitness.

I have always been an active person,enjoying both team and individual sports. I understand the struggle of trying to exercise and eat healthy while leading a busy life. I, too, share in this struggle. It is important to MAKE time for yourself to exercise, establish healthy eating habits and learn to love the body that you're in. I can help you with that. It's hard doing it on your own! I love cheering people on and watching them succeed so I will be there for your journey to healthy and happy! I will do my best to keep you focused, energized and positive before, during and after your workout.
I have personally had the most success through high intensity interval training. Don't let that scare you... high intensity for you may be very different than high intensity for someone else. All of my workouts are based on your current fitness level and your fitness goals (short and long-term)!

I couldn't be happier spending my time connecting people to true, whole foods. I am inspired by health, wellness, cooking and eating. One taste at a time, I've gained respect for whole foods that are so powerful, they can act as medicines. I want to empower others to take food into their own hands and spend face-to-face time learning about food for fuel and function. I can't wait to help you meet your goals!

I graduated from Cedarburg High School. I have my ACE personal training certification. My specialty is athletic training. I enjoy running Tough Mudders all over the country.

Fitness became a passion for me once I finally conquered my exercise-induced asthma. After 23 years of having that as a crutch, even in my everyday life, I dedicated myself to getting it under control. After that, everything else followed suit; my health became a priority as well as helping others reach their goals. I make it a goal not only for people to have a challenging workout, but also to make my training sessions as fun and entertaining as possible. I enjoy running Spartan Races with my wife, who is a Zumba instructor here at Form and Fitness.
I'm an actor, so leading groups through exercise is as enthralling to me as being on stage in the spotlight!
