fitness

As a Global Fitness Brand Ambassador, I have traveled the globe introducing my new, exciting workouts to professional fitness instructors and clubs, challenging them to raise the bar to inspire their students. The mission engages and energizes people in general around the world to feel better and improve their lives through exercise and holistic wellness. In my specialty, I feature fun, dynamic, highly-effective martial arts-oriented programs, accented with intensified cardio, sculpt, and core conditioning, that invigorate any workout routine. 

 

I am lucky to explore rich cultural exchange where so many new friendships have been made worldwide! The chance, also, to conceptualize and design innovative programs and even the equipment used in them and see the whole idea come to life on a multinational scale has proven to be an enjoyable and creative and rewarding experience.
