Tina made her way to Asheville from Chicago, IL.  She first became passionate about physical activity in elementary school with dance classes. She trained in several different types of dance for 15 years.   After college, Tina became an early childhood educator. Spending more than 5 years in classrooms from New Orleans to Chicago, fitness soon became her go-to stress reliever. She started attending group fitness classes, which led her to become a group fitness instructor and eventually a personal trainer. 

Recently, Tina’s own training has evolved, and competes in powerlifting. She found that powerlifting served as a catalyst for immense personal growth and increased confidence in all areas of her life. Her goal is to help you experience these same profound life changes via exercise.

NASM, CPR, & Nutrition Certified

I was born and raised in the cold but beautiful state of Maine. Thanks to hibernating in the gym while the long winters passed, I discovered my passion for fitness. I have expertise in many different training modalities, from CrossFit, to running, and have finally landed on strength training, specifically Powerlifting. In 2016, I began working as an independent personal trainer and have not looked back. I have trained all over the US and even in Spain! I’ve been blessed to have helped so many wonderful clients, and I can’t wait to continue the journey.

I pride myself in a science based and structured approach to training. Something that fits into your life, is enjoyable, and has long-term, sustainable results.
