What was your starting point versus your current fitness status?

I didn’t have much weight to lose but I’ve gained A LOT in strength and confidence….am up to a 4 minute full-arm plank!! And at 50 years old, that’s pretty good!

Who’s your fitness icon and why?

My fitness icon is my 15-year-old daughter. She swims competitively and her strength and motivation inspire me year-round!

Describe your favorite way of staying fit outdoors.

My favorite way of staying fit outdoors is riding my bike. We have a lot of hills around! As long as a workout is kicking my butt, I’m happy. BUT my absolute fav way of staying fit is kickboxing!!! Love, love, love every kick, every punch, every day!!

What’s your favorite thing about Skimble? 

My favorite thing about Skimble is the community. I’ve truly come to count on the support of my fellow Skimblers and really enjoy the workouts they create. My Skimble friends challenge me in so many ways and because of them, I can do more than I ever thought possible at my age!

What’s a random fact about you that you’d like to share with our community?

I am a cancer survivor….16 months and counting!!

What’s your fitness mantra/motto?

“IT doesn’t get easier. YOU get stronger!” and “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.”
