Hometown:  The frozen tundra of Duluth, MN

Funky Facts: I am Carrie Underwood's Touring Personal Trainer, and have been on the road with her since 2010. My fitness background is in Krav Maga (Israeli Martial Art/Self-Defense). I miss punching things. Before making fitness my full time career, I worked as a foot-model, professional actress and stunt performer. I’ve let my friends set my whole body on fire to practice for upcoming stunt gigs.

Words to Live By:  "if you can, you MUST"

Power song: The Theme song to "Rocky"-or the best of "Hall and Oates" gets me moving.

I BLAST Because: Even as a trainer, it is nice to have someone else to tell me what to do. And let's face it, no way most of us would push as hard if we were working out alone. I love BLAST for the energy and dynamic of all those around me. I am constantly inspired by everyone to do my absolute best! Plus: 30% incline works my calves! Lord knows I need to work on those!
