Welcome everyone!  The fitness revolution is on, and I am excited to share with you my 27 years of health-and-fitness education and experience.

Fortunately, for me, I was raised in a healthy environment where my parents instilled in me the importance of physical fitness and a balanced diet.  When I showed interest in dancing at the age of four, they encouraged (and funded for the next 18 years) my desire to do so.  When I wanted to start strength training at the age of 15, they placed me under the tutelage of  former Mr. Korea, Won Huh, for proper instruction.  When I wanted to join the dance team in high school, they strongly encouraged it and did the same when I made the dance team at the University of Florida.  My parents have also supported my fitness endeavors as an adult when I became a dancer for the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks; when I decided to become a fitness competitor; and when I returned to school to pursue my Master of Science (M.S.) with a specialization in Nutrition.  Of course my parents did frown on some things I wanted to do in my life (as most parents do), but they NEVER frowned on health and fitness.  When you realize how fun and exciting fitness can be, then hopefully you won’t either.

When I completed my M.S., I considered the achievement merely a beginning–the beginning of a quest to assist others in their pursuit of better health and fitness.  I hope you will allow me to assist you in your pursuit.  It’s never too early to start being healthy, and it’s never too late to start getting healthy.  

I currently teach 12 exciting classes at Dance 101 in Atlanta, GA, run my own personal training and nutrition coaching business, and train the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks Cheerleaders.  

I am as passionate about the health and fitness of others, as I am about my own.  And, I will do my best to help you see that exercise and a balanced diet can be enjoyable and fun.  

The fitness revolution is on…don’t get left out!

    Desiree, I’m excited to have found you on Dance 101’s FB page. I am not able to attend any classes there, because I live in Jefferson, GA, about 50 miles north of the studio. But I sure wish I could. I visited and loved what I saw. Maybe someday. In any case, I am on a mission to lose about 100 lbs…I’m down about 25 at this time, but have a long way to go. I look forward to reading your blogs. 🙂

    We applaud all your endeavors to maintain a healthy lifestyle. You are the greatest. Of course, anything else we write is totally prejudicial. But when you have your health, you have everything.

    Love Mom and Dad
