Pilates

Fitness is more than something I do, but something I am.

“When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it” [Paulo Coelho] This is exactly what happened for me in my life. 

When I was 13, I was diagnosed with a condition called fibromyalgia, which is basically a full body, chronic, system shutdown. My body, muscles, joints didn’t like to work. I was prescribed heavy painkillers, but didn’t want to take a pharmaceutical route and tried things my own way. It took a long time, but after many years I was able to live a fit lifestyle once again through natural supplements, dietary changes, Pilates, kettlebell sport, yoga, and running, all of which I believe has brought me back up from my chronic pain and keeps me in a pain free, manageable, fit, and healthy lifestyle.

I grew up in the warm embrace of the east coast of Florida. Nestled near the ocean and hugged by two rivers, my little town of Merritt Island was an idyllic place to be a kid. There was always somewhere to play, run, swim, surf or daydream.

Like many little girls, my mom started me in ballet around age five. I quickly grew tired of it and insisted on quitting. Even at a young age I knew what I wanted! I swapped dance for gymnastics and competed all around the state until age 11. But like ballet, I began to grow tired of gymnastics and had seen my next movement calling: the stage.
