Theresa has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years starting out as a group exercise instructor and personal trainer. Her love of health and fitness was devloped later in life after having her first two children and realizing how important taking care of yourself is. Theresa wanted to share this with others who might not have come from an athletic background like herself but needed the encouragement and support to make positive lifestyle changes. Over the last 5 years she has become more involved with CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting and competing in the sport. In addition to coaching CrossFit she helps run the Traverse CIty Barbell Club housed in the same facility. One highlight she enjoys most in this work is the amazing community of people that not only workout together but love and support each other in their life’s journey. She hopes to continue to motivate and inspire others to reach their goals no matter how big or small. Theresa enjoys spending time outdoors with her family near Lake Leelanau where they reside.
