Metabolic, Strength & Water Sports

Where it all began:

I was born and raised in Texas! As the youngest of 6 children, I was raised in a chaotic, active and fun household. Playing outdoors and in the water was a huge part of our childhood. We were blessed with parents who encouraged an adventurous lifestyle. My father wakes each morning looking forward to his “adventure” for the day, and he turns 98 this year! His philosophy is “a healthy and active body keeps a healthy and active mind.” He's still the smartest man I know.

 

I graduated from the University of Texas Austin with a BA in Business Marketing. I worked as a corporate recruiter in Dallas and married Brad, my college sweetheart, while he was in his 3rd year of Med School. We've been happily married for 37 years and have four daughters, my oldest, Paige, and Claire, Kristen & Courtney who are triplets.

 

Brad and I thrive on adventure and travel the world to rock climb, mountain bike, canyoneer and any other adrenaline providing adventures we can find.  We spend most of our days in town on Lake Austin water skiing, surfing and teaching the grandkids to love and play on the water as well.

  It is never too late to be
what you might have been.

Exercise Philosophy

Daily exercise has always been a significant part of my life. I love any form of outdoor activity, but have always had a “love affair” with water. I grew up on a lake and was an avid water skier at the age of 5. I couldn’t wait to drive the boat, and my Dad gave me the wheel at the age of 9. I've been behind the wheel or behind the boat throughout my life, teaching my childhood friends how to ski, and now getting to teach skiing, wake surfing and wakeboarding to our amazing women of iGnite!

My favorite class I lead with iGnite is of course Lake Escape, where I teach water skiing and wake surfing, along with passing on the love of the lake with anyone who wants to experience it.  Power Up is my second favorite because I love teaching our ladies that they can push their limits and accomplish new goals to improve their strength, power and confidence!

Living my best life means:

Staying strong and healthy is the greatest gift we can give ourselves. I believe that if we make fitness a part of our lifestyle, it becomes increasingly easy to LIVE and be well. I am truly inspired every day by the men and women I am blessed to train, and strive each day to make a positive impact on their lives.

This life God has blessed me with just gets better every year! I look forward to each day as a new adventure, just as my father does. I am truly enjoying the “ride” and can’t wait to see where HE takes me next!
