I joined Farrell's in June of 2011. I had just had my second child and was tired, out of shape, and scared. I began with a co-worker and we showed up together on day 1. I remember vividly that first day of kickboxing...I was dying, dog tired, and strangely enough, I loved every second of it. I had always been an athlete and an active person, but then life got in the way. Working full time with 2 young kids gave me no time or energy to do anything for myself. I committed to the 10 week program and began to carve out that time for me daily. I lost 10 pounds in my first 10 weeks. I signed on as a FIT member and went on to lose a total of 35 pounds and a lot of inches. But more importantly, I gained strength, confidence, and I feel like a whole new person. I love the class setting and all the motivation and inspiration I've found at Farrell's. From day 1 everyone has been so encouraging and supportive. Working out is now a way of life for me. I literally plan my day around what class I'm coming to.

I began instructing in January of 2014. I was hesitant at first to lead a class. I worried that I would not be able to provide a solid workout and push people to their limits. I am SO VERY GLAD I decided to try it. I have found my passion. I absolutely love to instruct classes, and I love seeing first hand the progress people are making. I've learned that people are capable of so much more than they think they are, and I am there to help them realize that. I love watching people finish a workout that in the early weeks they never could have done. I am blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team of owners, instructors, and coaches here at FXB.

I am married to my husband Brian and we have two children: Gavin -7 and Madison - 4. I work full time as a police officer on 2nd shift. I jokingly get accused of "police brutality" in my classes...and I love it. Come join us here at FXB, you won't regret it!
