Born and raised in Tucson, ballet and Bikram yoga were my first loves.  After graduating from Boston University with a concentration in Entrepreneurship, I worked for corporate America in Atlanta, Albuquerque, and Durango.  During this time I became a group fitness junkie and received my Registered Yoga Teacher 200.  Missing the desert and the ever evolving culture of Downtown Tucson, I moved home hoping to make a contribution in some way.  I live, work, and play Downtown, but Downtown was lacking something - somewhere to sweat.  LET'S SWEAT was born.  A 2nd home where we can come together to share a combination of our fitness loves - cycling, HIIT, strength training, yoga, perhaps pilates...  Something new and healthy for Downtown Tucson and our daily routines!  The best part of your day; our day.  Together, today, and tomorrow.

Originally from Pennsylvania I have been teaching and training for over 17 years.  I am a former collegiate field hockey, softball, and club rugby player, hence my love for movement.  I hold a M.S. in Exercise Science, along with NSCA –CSCS, ACSM-Ex Phys Specialist, Spinning, Surfset, Kettlebell, and TRX certifications.  Functional training, mobility, and alignment are my loves.  I am also a certified Nutrition Specialist thru the AASDN. I enjoy working with a variety of abilities and ages and being a military wife has afforded me a variety of opportunities and experiences over the years teaching, coaching, and training individuals 3 to 87 year olds.  My husband and I enjoy leading a healthy lifestyle, outdoor activities, yoga, sporting events, and traveling.   More than a workout, it’s helping to create a healthy balance, challenge, educate, and watch my clients reach their goals - that is my passion.

I am an undergraduate at the University of Arizona, currently pursuing a degree in Biochemistry. As a Tucson native, I love outdoor activities such as running, hiking, and biking. I have a passion for health and wellness, and hold group fitness and indoor cycling certifications.  I started instructing as soon as I could drive myself to class!  Since then, I have continued to challenge participants throughout various gyms in Tucson. Come join me for an hour of strengthening, sculpting, but most importantly… SWEAT!

Originally from NY State, I love the sunny desert and the active lifestyle in Tucson. I am an elementary physical education teacher and who enjoys swimming, running, biking, hiking, barre and yoga. I have been teaching group exercise since I was in college including boot camp classes, aqua classes, youth fitness classes and cycling. I have a BS in Kinesiology and Physical Education and hold a certification in Indoor cycling.

After moving quite a bit as a child, I found my home in the pool. As an elite swimmer, I witnessed the way working out together can build life-long friendships. I am passionate about creating community and think movement is a great way to do it. I'm a certified group fitness instructor and have worked with people from ages 2 to 82, including experience with University of Arizona Athletics (go Cats!).  Join me for an intentional hour of taking time and space for yourself, building friendship and of course...sweating!

Growing up I found I had a passion for dance which continued with me through my undergraduate studies at Boston University. However, finding dance classes that fit my schedule proved to be difficult.  But then I found group fitness. It started with Zumba, an obvious hook for dancers; but then I started to go to more classes of any style and quickly became addicted. After spending most of the classes up in front of the mirror and knowing the choreography and workouts, I decided it was time for me to lead my own classes. After graduation I decided to pursue a PhD in Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona where I also began my first job as a fitness instructor. Since 2014 I have been teaching Zumba, Les Mills, cycling, and a horde of other classes and I never get enough. By day I might be a lab rat, but as soon as I get into the fitness studios I get a rush of energy and passion that I strive to bring to all my participants. Hope to see you sweating soon!

Even though I was born in France, I’m a Tucson kid to the core. I moved here when I was six, and have spent most of my time down here in the Old Pueblo. Growing up in an athletic family, sports have always been my passion. I played basketball and ran track throughout school, winning the 400 meters city title, and placing 3rd overall in the state of Arizona. I continued running at Pima Community College, and was part of the 4x100 meter relay team that competed at the NJCAA Championships. I decided to turn my passion for sports and fitness into my profession, and became a certified personal trainer through A.C.E. in 2011. I’m also a Sports Conditioning Specialist with A.C.E., have multiple TRX certifications, and I’m a Golf Fitness Specialist through NASM. I spend my free time with my two little boys, running around and playing, and teaching them the important things like why DC Comics has the best heroes! I’m happy to be a part of the LET’S SWEAT family! See you guys in class!

I was born here in Tucson but spent most of my childhood in Charleston, South Carolina so I consider myself a Southwestern Belle! I attended a performing arts High School where I pursued ballet and modern dance! After High School I continued being semi active but never really found a gym community that I loved! That all changed when I came to the Let’s Sweat Grand Opening… I finally felt welcomed and excited about working out! Let’s Sweat has truly changed the way I view fitness. I am so happy to be part of the amazing team.

I was born and raised in Toronto Canada where I began my career in swimming as a child taking swim lessons at McMaster University.  Years later I graduated from the University of Arizona.  Despite my desire to compete all four years in swimming on the collegiate level, an unfortunate and un-diagnosed back injury halted my swimming career. It was at this time that I began coaching.  In addition to training the age group and senior levels, I developed and continue to coach the Masters Swim Program.  After years of working as a financial planner, I knew I was destined to return to the pool and fitness world.  I have developed a passion for exercise routines that are based upon the idea of high intensity functional movements. I believe the human body is designed to be versatile, and non-varied routines stunt growth both mentally and physically. My ultimate passion comes from helping people of all ages plan, obtain and exceed their personal goals.

Like many an American child, I grew up playing soccer and riding around the neighborhood on my BMX bike. By the time I was in high school, I added track and swimming to the mix. Despite majoring in Computer Science, one of the least physical career paths there is, I have managed to stay consistently active throughout my adult life because I love the way being fit feels. I've been teaching group fitness since 2009 and have participated in dozens of road races and triathlons, inlcuding the Boston Marathon. I hope to see you in class and out on the course!
