As a core coach, I am focused on making sure athletes have a strong and stable foundation so they can train harder, safer and improve their performance. I have a background as a Pilates instructor, mental health specialist, and in Organizational Development. I like helping athletes be healthy and strong, and creating systems that help them be successful with their goals in life and sport from the physical to mental.
I have been playing recreational ultimate for 10 years and more competitively in the last couple years. I have always loved the Spirit of the Game and the community it brings. When I got injured (hip labral tear and annular tear in my spine) I turned to RenFitness and Pilates to avoid surgery and to get stronger. It worked! When I heard that Ren wanted to open a gym, I jumped at the opportunity to help in any way I could. With Strive & Uplift I get to use my skills to advance the sport of ultimate and contribute to the community that I consider family.
