I just LOVE LOVE LOVE being fit & LOVE LOVE LOVE sharing the joy of being fit with others - whether they are my personal training clients or attendees at a fitness education workshop.
I have been a certified aerobics instructor since 1987 and have been a certified personal trainer since 1992. My husband and I own a private fitness training business, a lifestyle coaching business and a fitness education business. I believe that people who say they don't enjoy exercise just haven't found the right exercise. I specialize in helping individuals enjoy exercise and encourage them to embrace fitness as a lifestyle not just as a quick fix for the present.
In addition, my husband and I own Stokes Fitness Academy a provider of continuing education for fitness professionals. As the Director of Program Development, I have the opportunity to conduct research on exercise science, nutrition, equipment, trends and formats of group fitness and personal training. For 10 years, I served as the Director of Education for FiTOUR and for 15 years worked as a ProTrainer for FiTOUR. My experience as a presenter, educator and author of programming has been beneficial in the development and design of my own brand of programming for my clients based on the principles and philosophies of BFitLifestyles. Stokes Fitness Academy provides educational opportunities for trainers who wish to incorporate the BFitLifestyles business model.
I am an example of "Love What you Do & Do What You Love" to reach success. I never wake up and dread going to work. My work is my life and my life is my work.
