F.I.R.E. Fitness Classes

Start The New Year Feeling Stronger And More Young At Heart!


F: Feel amazing physically and mentally as you start the New Year!

I: Initiate positive lifestyle changes 

R: Revitalize, renew, and restore your health and longevity

E: Engage and connect with a community of fellow fitness students from around the world


     I am beyond excited to share with you my personal strength training workout which has been lovingly curated over the past 50+ years of my career training men, women, and the younger generation in community, University, and private classes from the Midwest to the Southwestern, U.S.A. This protocol has helped my decades of students achieve their strength training goals, overall fitness, and maintain a sense of youthfulness.


     Over the years my students have raved about how much fun they have in class, how much extra energy they have, how they generally feel more positive about their bodies, and how much younger at heart they feel. 


     This is the very strength training protocol which has helped keep me fit for 50 years (riding horses, hiking, and traveling the world) and helped me feel vibrant at my age as The Woman On Fire


     The Covid Pandemic has changed our world. In these uncertain times, there’s so much outside of our control but, one of the things that is WITHIN OUR CONTROL is taking care of our HEALTH, FITNESS AND STRENGTH. This class doesn’t require a lot of money, fancy equipment or a gym membership. And you can do it all from the comfort of your home while also making friends and connecting with a community of like-minded individuals. 


     I so look forward to having you join me in this new Zoom Fitness Class! Whether you are new to fitness or are an elite cross training athlete, you will feel sufficiently challenged and supported in my fitness classes. 


     Through strength training and specific exercises, I’ll be helping you start the New Year off feeling as strong as possible and young at heart again! 


 When you listen to my cues and directions, you can expect to:


—Have fun!

—Have more overall energy

—Increase your muscle strength and endurance

—Increase your pride and self esteem in your new and stronger body

—Have fun!

—Revitalize, renew, and restore your health and longevity

—Feel vibrant whatever your age

Reduce risk of injuries

—Improve your quality of life

—Feel younger at heart

—And have fun!
