Our Kettlebell Instructors



My passion for movement and training started at an early age and has grown exponentially. Purposeful training is artfully crafted and I want to share it with others. As a teacher my goal is to inspire a healthy and balanced lifestyle for others using physical training, proper nutrition, sleep, and lowered stress.
