Thank you for your interest in TaraFit and all we have to offer you! My goal is always to inspire you to find value and joy in total body wellness through physical activity, nutrition education, and natural living.

My fitness journey began as a gymnast and then a competitive cheerleader. The hard work I put into those athletic activities set me up with a strong base of knowledge and drive. I went on to expand that knowledge in college through Missouri Baptist University’s Sports Medicine program (now Athletic Training). I completed an internship with a chiropractor and began teaching group exercise at a YMCA. I honed in on my tendencies toward natural healing and wellness and fitness and found a lifelong passion!

After graduating college in 2003, I came home to Kansas City, Missouri and started my own personal training business. I worked full time with several clients and up to 20 fitness classes a week.

I ended my full time career in 2008 to stay home with my first child and then second child in 2010. I have always continued teaching a few classes here and there as time permitted. To blend my life as a mom and fitness professional, I got certified to teach stroller-based fitness through Baby Boot Camp and have enjoyed bringing fitness to many moms and their little ones.

I always dreamed of opening my own group fitness studio and producing at-home fitness DVD’s so with the support of my family and friends, it is finally coming together! I hope you find my passion helpful in your journey to total body wellness!
