She and her business partner Lisa Allen founded their company in 2009 to combine the energy of group fitness with the benefits of personal training to deliver a brand-new fitness experience.

As an MBSC affiliate, the two are extensively trained as certified functional strength coaches (CSFC) and also received their group fitness certification from the International Fitness Association (IFA).
