First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to consider Title 29 Fitness to be a part of your journey. We can’t wait to come alongside you and do everything we can to help you reach your goals!!

I joke around about how over half my life has been spent either on a field or in a weight room. Baseball and football were my first love but when the time came for me to hang up my cleats I wanted to make sure I was staying active, and that is where my coaching adventure began. Over the last 8 years, I have coached/trained a wide variety of clients. From individuals who are new to exercising, youth sports teams, and collegiate athletes, all the way to grandmas and grandpas looking to be able to chase around the grandkids for as long as possible :) The experience of working with such a diverse range of clients, coupled with years of education, has provided me with the tools necessary to aid anyone in the pursuit of their goals!! Shoot us a message or a call, and let’s walk down this road together.


Q: What is your favorite part about training others?
A: I live for the moment- when a member pulls me off to the side after class and tells me that they accomplished a goal they had set for themself. I can't help but get emotional during those conversations because it feels as though I was able to play a small role in helping them reach their fullest potential.
Q: What is your favorite nutritional tip?
A: PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN!!! Then more protein.
Q: What is your favorite thing about T29?
A: I coach the morning classes and when my alarm goes off I can't wait to get to the gym to see the crew!! We laugh and joke, but we also work extremely hard. It's the perfect balance and there is no better way to start the day :)
