I am an NSCA Certified Personal Trainer and started The Fit Xchange in Kailua Kona, Hawaii in 2013. Married to my high school sweetheart, Ben, and mother of two little girls, I am living the dream doing what I love in the most beautiful place on earth. I specialize in Circuit Training, HIIT (high intensity interval training), body building, yoga fusion, mat ab workouts, body weight barre and mat workouts, and macro counting services. I am a fitness blogger, novelist, nutrition guru, and lover of people, dogs, and sunshine. I am committed to pursuing an active, healthy, and content lifestyle, and educating others to do the same. Give me a call or text if you need a personal trainer, would like to join a group class, have any questions about fitness and nutrition, or just need a motivational kick in the ass.
Owner and Operator
Aloha, I am an ACE certified Personal Trainer, and Yoga instructor licensed through the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga. I have lived in Kailua Kona, HI since 1995 and have trained clients that come from all over the world. My overall approach to fitness is living a healthy lifestyle, and I offer that through classes I teach and the personal connection I make with each and every client. It’s more than what I do, it’s who I am. One of the highlights of my career was teaching a yoga segment on the national TV show “The Little People”, at the Hilton Waikoloa Resort, working with the stars of the show. I am a runner at heart, completing 3 half marathons, and even ventured into triathlons here on the Big Island, completing 3 Olympic distance Lavamans. I am proud to have my own fitness business, and invite you into a class or join in a small group training session. I look forward to meeting you soon!

I grew up in Southern Virginia then moved to Hawai’i in 2005. From a young age my passion for movement was sparked through dance - from hiphop to ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary. Dance has taken me around the world and the USA. Throughout many moves and a high demanding physical career — like so many of us — my over all health took a back burner to my career and life. I forgot about taking care of my body & health. Through various wake up calls, sustaining and stewarding my body became increasingly important. I tried acupuncture, regular massage, saw different types of physicians, but nothing has restored my body like Pilates! I completed my Comprehensive Pilates Certification through BASI Pilates in California. (I have since had a baby and can still testify that Pilates is an amazing way to restore the body!) I love offering that same restoration to my clients. When they finish a session with me and tell me, “I feel better, I feel taller”, I know I have given them a true Pilates session.
Don’t let your body become a forgotten body.
