Speaking


I am available for speaking on topics around body image, fitness and health. There is a lot of work to do. Most of us hate our bodies. We don’t treat them with respect.

Workshops


I love to talk with personal trainers/wellness coaches and any sort of practitioner who’s job should entail empowering people in their bodies.

Coaching


Distance training is one of my more popular programs. It allows folks in the area as well as far away to get the benefit of workouts, nutrition goals and constant support.

Group Training


Seasonally I put together group fitness classes that usually involve strength training and cardio for a total body overhaul.

Marriage is hard: Why I do it anyway
