I have been part of the fitness world my entire life, first as a competitive gymnast and speed skater back home in East Germany, then as a U.S. based martial artist, bodybuilder and certified fitness trainer.
I fell in love with sports from a ridiculously early age, especially the confidence-boosting aspects and learned early on that physical fitness can help you actualize your goals in all areas of life.
My experiences impact the way that I teach, guide, and coach women - and my diverse fitness background helps me approach your program with genuine attention to all areas of your health and well-being.
I LEARNED EARLY ON THAT PHYSICAL FITNESS CAN HELP YOU ACTUALIZE YOUR GOALS IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE
My ethos is simple – no quick fixes or deprivation, just a balanced program designed to improve your (fitness) life and take the frustration out of training. I blend strength training, nutrition coaching, and lifestyle adjustments to help you build a stronger and fitter you, take your confidence to the next level, and empower you to become the most awesome version of yourself.
I'm excited to teach and show you the transformative power of fitness.
I believe every woman has the right to want to look and feel her best. My training isn’t about comparing our bodies to others or fearing their judgment.
It's about taking the reins and challenging ourselves to discover all the incredible things our bodies can become. It’s about being confident and fearless, shooting above obtainable and standing tall.
I'm here to help you make sense of all the misinformation and **fake fitness** out there, and support you in building that beautiful, strong, powerful body so you can take on the world in your own unique way.
Competitively trained in gymnastics & speed skating in Germany; Karate (Shorin Ryu) and Bodybuilding in the US

When I'm not working, you can find me taking my sweet pup, Milo, for a hike or run, tackling an ambitious DIY home project, treating myself to a delicious burger or satisfying my sweet tooth with a chocolate macaroon.
