W Bloomfield, MI 48323-2611

I am a fitness and wellness consultant with over thirty years experience in the health and fitness industry. I am passionate about teaching and training, and helping others to be the best they can be. Two of my greatest strengths are in developing effective, creative programs for both businesses and individuals, and creating and presenting continuing education workshops for the novice and experienced fitness professionals.

I am certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, Aquatics Exercise Association, and the American Council on Exercise. I am a former health club owner and operator, club manager and fitness director, and currently work as a Personal Trainer, and Lifestyle Coach, Group Fitness, Yoga and Aquatics Instructor, as well as a Master Instructor Trainer for Drums Alive. I am the Founder and Owner of Functional Integrated Training LLC (FIT) Enterprises, a comprehensive fitness and wellness consulting firm specializing in training and development, coaching, creative program design, continuing education, group fitness instruction, aquatics, personal training, and corporate fitness and wellness.

In addition to my work as a FIT pro, I am also a musician; pianist, percussionist, singer, and song writer, and have always enjoyed mixing great music and movement. I am known for having some of the most eclectic music and energetic group classes, that appeal to every age level. Music is a great motivator, and I take great pride in giving the best; in exercise, music, and to provide a fun, entertaining, and educational experience for all.
