I dedication to health started at the young age of 6. When I brought home my first blue ribbon, a swimmer was born. In 1994, I placed 2nd in the Kentucky State competition and accepted a full athletic scholarship at Florida Atlantic University. I swam competitively for another 2 years, married at 20 and gave birth to 2 beautiful babies. In 2010, I decided to train for a triathlon. I took on curriculum of swimming, spinning and running along with my favorite early morning CrossFit sessions!
On August 13th, 2011 an incident at a Sugarland concert at the Indiana State Fairgrounds would change not only my fitness abilities, but my life forever! My daughter – who will be a famous singer one day, you wait and see – and I were critically injured when the huge outdoor stage collapsed onto the standing crowd. The disaster occurred when a sudden gust of wind toppled the massive stage just before the band was to begin their concert. The collapse left me pinned under a mountain of twisted metal. My pelvis was broken in 3 places along with 8 other broken bones and many more debilitating injuries!
After months of being confined to a wheelchair and crutches, indoor riding was the only fitness option I had. Through my extensive ongoing rehabilitation, indoor cycling became my lifeline to recovery and back to fitness. I know what it's like to have physical limitations. There were days I didn't want to get out of bed thinking, "Will I ever swim or compete again". Today, I am a testimony to the amazing recovery and rehabilitation that can be achieved through indoor cycling. It is my goal through LOGIK to help those who feel there is no hope to find home once again! After all, The power is within you!
I enjoy training you on the specific skill set needed to reach the different heart rate target zones and helping you to understand why they are important to your overall fitness. Plus, my class is like a party on the bike! The environment is killer; Skrillex, dubstep, hard beats, sweat, lights, action!
