In 1994, I founded Body Symmetry, a fitness training and consulting company based in Springfield, IL. Personal fitness training became my full-time profession in 1992. In the last 23 years, I have conducted over 40,000 hours of individual training sessions, including thousands of movement screens and program designs for people of all ages and abilities.

There is an ever-growing interest in health and fitness throughout the world. My mission at Body Symmetry is to lead my team of trainers to inspire and educate our clients about the various ways they can improve their wellness through sound nutritional habits and proper forms of exercise.

I am also the founder of FreeFitnessVideos.com, an online health and fitness training platform that allows users to view hundreds of exercise videos, as well as create, save and send workouts. My staff at Body Symmetry uses FreeFitnessVideos.com on a daily basis to create and send workouts to our clients that choose to exercise on their own at home or when traveling.

Not many people can say they do what they love for a vocation. I'm one of those few, lucky individuals, and I am thankful people in our community have discovered Body Symmetry.
