Welcome! I’d love to see you on the floor for group fitness classes. New to classes? Check out my tips at the bottom of this page!
Washington College and Kent Count Community Center classes are $6 drop-in or $25/5 classes with a class pass.
Aquafit classes are $7 drop-in.
Village Gym classes are $10 drop-in, $5 to attend with a member, or $29+/month for all classes.
Looking to try something new? Or, to rekindle your love for fitness? Here are the classes I teach and what I LOVE about them:
Insanity Live – Just like the at-home program developed by Shaun T., this 30 minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) course encourages you to unleash your inner athlete. You’ll build endurance, speed, and strength at your pace.
PiYo Live – This mat-based class (bare feet recommended) helps you build flexibility, strength, and core power while also offering cardio in a low-impact environment. Inspired by movements from yoga and pilates, this class moves at a moderate-to-fast pace in a flow and strength-building environment.
Pound – This is a cardio jam session inspired by the infectious, energizing, and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums. No experience required, and this class is for anybody. We use Ripstix and move to awesome rockin’ music.
TurboKick Live – This heart-pumping cardio class combines elements of kickboxing into a cardio class form. You’ll move to fun music with choreographed (easy to learn) punches and kicks. High energy class!
Zumba – Move to fun music and easy-to-follow beats! This cardio class incorporates international rhythms and feels like a giant dance party. No dancing experience is required.
In 2009, I started teaching group fitness classes. Beginning with Zumba Fitness I, I quickly added Zumba Fitness II and Zumba Toning to my repertoire.
In 2011, I wanted to branch out from just cardio-based fitness classes. I started taking PiYo Strength classes and found the results of building strength, flexibility, and toning incredibly rewarding. Not long after taking classes, I became licensed to teach PiYo Strength.
In the spring of 2012, I added Turbo Kick, another Beach Body-style class, to my teaching portfolio. Like Zumba, Turbo Kick is an intense cardio class, and it couples very well with PiYo Strength.
Looking for another challenge, I became certified to teach Insanity in 2013. The most intense class I’ve ever taken or taught, Insanity is a high-intensity interval training class, helping increase endurance, speed, agility, strength, and power.
In 2016, I challenged myself with another TurboKick certification, to learn the NEW and updated TurboKick Live format.
Teaching fitness is both rewarding and fun…and addicting.

I remind students that it’s okay if your moves don’t look 100% like mine! Each body moves differently, and it’s important to listen to your body as you do the moves. Some of my students modify moves, some go left when I go right…I say, as long as you’re jammin’, having a good time, feeling good, go for it!
Stick with it! Try to attend at least three classes if you’re new. Give yourself time to learn the material.
