Throughout school she was a cheerleader, on the dance team and choreographed many routines for other groups and schools. Even then deep down her true desire was to use her talents for God. The Lord opened the doors in 2002 for her to travel in a Christian dance and drama ministry called “3D” that she is still very involved in today.

501C0042Mandy's career in group fitness began in 2004 (simply by chance, filling in for a friend on maternity leave teaching her cycling classes.) I quickly realized how much I loved teaching group fitness, so I began teaching multiple types of classes. I now hold certifications in Primary Aerobics, Cycling, and Personal Training. What I love most about group fitness is the energy the participants bring which makes working out so much fun!
