Coming from a fitness background, I am no stranger to the dedication, hard work, and total mental focus that it takes to compete in fitness/figure, or in general personal fitness. I was a tomboy as a child, and played volleyball in jr. and sr. high school, so fitness was passion for me at an early age. Working in various health clubs and gyms during college, I became a professional at age 20. I am a Pro Fitness Support Coach, with several years exeperience and expertise under my belt. I design programs to fit personal and individual needs. Nutritional counseling is also part of my professional insight on fitness. I am certified by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, as well as the American Council on Exercise for Professional Fitness Training and Counseling, I am also certified in Aerobic and Weight Training Instruction by the same associations. In addition, I hold a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Florida State University.
I currently live in Clemmons, North Carolina. I personally have been competing in fitness for 7 years prior to retiring in 2002 due to hectic travel and work schedule, however, I came out of retirement in 2006 when travel was no longer a requirement for my job. At the beginning of my fitness competition career, I trained with Darby Hart for two years. She currently holds the title for Ms. Fitness World 1998 and 1997, and Ms. National Fitness 1996. Training with her was very exciting a great learning experience, and I came away with a clear understanding of what it takes to compete as a fitness athlete, and knew I had found my calling. Competing is very rewarding and it helps very much to keep me focused and positive. However, the road to the stage is not an easy one. Being committed to your goal is of a high priority.
Currently, I hold two regional titles that I obtained in 1999 before retiring. However, after coming out of retirement in 2006 I placed 1st in Fitness Tall Class and 3rd in Figure C Class a tremendous comeback for me. I possess a whole new commitment to the sport. I endured a tragic treadmill malfunction in 2004 that fractured my hip and broke it in two. I was never supposed to be able to walk right, run again, or much less even think about competing. Being an athlete, that is a hard lump to swallow. I proved all my doctors wrong by not only recovering as close to 100% as I possibly could from my injury, but also by coming out of retirement to compete again only 2 years later winning 1st place in my class in Fitness and 3rd place in my class in Figure--a very proud moment for me. A tremendous accomplishment. My trainer, Mike Davies of The Fitness factory in Columbus Ohio, of three years, brought my lacking thigh muscle out of atrophy, and weak legs back to full capacity, and I am forever grateful for the help and training that he provided for me. Today, my goal is to continue to build and define my legs for National Level readiness for competition year 2010.
I have appeared on ESPN, and Entertainment Tonight, as well as Ms. Fitness Magazine, NPC Magazine, and various newspapers along the East Coast from New York to Florida, the West Coast from Nevada to California. I have also been a guest speaker on local radio stations, and I write fitness and nutrition articles for BodyBuilding.com. I was an advocate for The City of Hope for AIDS Awareness for three years. I trained with Darby Hart for two years. She holds the title for Ms. Fitness World 1998 and 1997, and Ms. National Fitness 1996
My website at www.bringitfit.com is my online business for fitness support training called "Bring IT...!!!" Fitness and Competition Support. I am currently, putting together plans for opening a support center to be home based in Winston-Salem, NC for Fitness Athletes, and Figure Competitors to have another great resource to the stage.
Mentoring women and men toward their goals in competing, also in general health and well-being gives a true feeling of satisfaction and pride. The experience has been nothing short of rewarding. I am thrilled that I made the tremendous effort to experience fitness competing past, and present.
My efforts now, are to be the best I can be as well as help others reach their goals in competing which is not only exciting, but extremely fulfilling. It makes me very happy and proud to get the feedback from the many women that I have assisted along this path who are doing extremely well in their own efforts to succeed in the very competitive fitness/figure competition world, as well as my general fitness enthusiasts who have taken staying fit and healthy to the next level and made it an intricate part of their lifestyle.
I encourage everyone to stay active and lead a healthy lifestyle. Nothing is more important than your personal health and well-being. Goals can be set and accomplished if your set them realistically and dedicate yourself to them and to yourself.
