Read Natalie's bio

Natalie is a highly self-motivated athlete with a unique ability to encourage her clients to push themselves above and beyond their “comfort level.” Her considerable experience in endurance training, weight training, and core and stability training has translated into success with many clients. Throughout her life, Natalie has enthusiastically participated in physical fitness. She fondly recalls competing in a 5K race with her family when she was eight years old. As captain of the rugby team at the US Air Force Academy, she led the team to the national championship competition. Currently, she leads her “team“ of four children in a daily homeschooling adventure. If Natalie is not at the gym in the early morning hours, she’s probably out running. “I love to run,” she says. “It’s an efficient way to burn calories and relieve stress, and requires no coordination and only a pair of shoes.” Although her favorite race distance is the half-marathon, she’s run four marathons, and she’s making plans to add to that number.
