I'm a 59 year old Mother of 7, Gramma of 6, and making time for myself!
I am a NASM certified Personal Trainer,
with a certification in Corrective Exercise Specialization and Senior Fitness
I had a very bad year in 2010, with numerous setbacks, including 2 surgeries, and losing my mom. I gained 50 lbs. After of year of "healing", I'm ready to get back on the loss weight band wagon, and get back down to where I need to be!
I love strength training!
I have to remember, that these 50 lbs did not show up on this body over night. It's not going to come off that way, either!

--2014/15--Let myself go over the holidays. STUPID! Gained back the 10 lbs that I lost! Thankfully, our new gym opened! Been back there consistently! Beginning to feel better! Passed my NASM Personal Training Accreditation in April 2015! Training my own clients, as well as working with MY Trainer, Nick the Notorious! LOL! aka Trick Fit! The new levels he has taken me to, is astounding! LOVE the new routines he throws at me!!

--2016--New direction-New Trainer! I have changed my training direction! I am now training with a Personal Trainer who is a Power Lifter! I have registered for the USAPL Federation, and also have registered for my FIRST EVER Power Lifting competition! I will be competing on the platform on July 30th! I'm both excited and nervous! I am the oldest woman in my division! This is REAL!! I have increased all of my lifts, Bench Press, Dead lift, and Squats over the past 8 weeks, and I still haven't reached my limit! I'm excited to see how far that I can push my body!

2017! The Year of ME!
I am competitively Power Lifting! I compete in the Masters 50-59 age group. I now hold 5 USAPL NC state records, and now hold a Bronze and most recently, Gold in my age and weight class!
You're never to old to pick up the iron, and start lifting! Strengthen your bones, muscles, ligaments, and release endorphin's! There's no time like NOW, to get moving!

2018! The Year of Big Goals!
I am continuing my Power Lifting Journey! But now, I've brought along my training partner, and another friend, to join me in competing! I've changed my weight class, with the hope of setting more NC state records! My partner, competed in his first meet, and broke the NC State M2a, 120+K deadlift record, at 574#! He's 51! Age is just a number! Don't let anyone tell you anything different! Live your life! Not your age! Big things to come in the rest of 2018!

I'm much more confident, and assertive now that I am physically stronger! In addition to Personal Training, I now manage a Snap Fitness club, near my home!
There's no time like TODAY! Get up! Get moving! You CAN do it!


Heck! At 50+...the sky's the limit!
Live your Life! Not your Age!

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
