“In 2009, was when fitness came into my life. I became a certified fitness instructor and my love for group fitness began along with my journey into the world of on-camera fitness modeling with Beachbody, Jillian Michaels and Leslie Sansone Walk @ Home Productions. I teach fitness because I enjoy giving people inspiration for a healthy lifestyle and by the end of class I want my students to fell stronger and more empowered than when they first walked in. As a mom and wife I know firsthand the value of time. I personally like my workouts to get straight to the point and deliver results I always believed that fitness should never be a bore or chore which is what inspired the development of Sweaty Savoy. I enjoyed the idea of combining high intensity group fitness and 1920's lindy hop because together and alone they are both powerful. Sweaty Savoy is a new, exciting, fresh, bold, outside of the box exciting and fun way to get fit!''
