- I am a Mom of two young lads, a fitness fanatic and wife to a die-hard Packers/Brewers fan. I worked in corporate america for 12 years. Now I am on a new adventure - raising my sons and working part-time in the fitness industry as a Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor. I hope you stop by and read my updates- family, fitness, or life related!

As most of you know, I work part time at the YMCA as a Fitness Instructor. It has been a lifetime goal of mine, and after I lost 30 lbs about 5 years ago - I decided it was time to look into it. Before I knew it, the Director at the Y at the time had me all signed up for training when all I did was ask "what if someone wanted to look into being an Instructor."
So, here I am almost five years later. I teach BodyPump, and BootCamp. I used to teach Cardio Kick as well. Now, my schedule is going to two BodyPump classes instead of one BP and one Bootcamp. Recently, I took Kettlebell training. This is more of a personal training type of class- and kettlebells are a great workout. I got into them when Joe's mom bought me one for Christmas, and it came with a DVD. I loved that it gave you strength training, while keeping your heart rate up, and also some agility, endurance and balance. It only takes a half hour too, so anyone can do it.
I think they sell kettlebells even at Target, so here's my little plug for kettlebells. I can even show you some moves! :)
I am not scheduled to teach Kettlebells on a regular basis yet, right now I just sub- but perhaps in the future I will be a Kettlebell instructor. I really enjoy my time being a Fitness Instructor and helping people feel good about fitness, have fun, and achieve their goals!!
