Ferndale, WA 98248-9502

At the age of 63, after several careers in journalism, theatre, and the tourism industry, I realized that i was growing overweight, and losing muscle. My solution was to enroll in the nearest martial arts school. Four years later I had earned a black belt. Three more years, and I made second degree. I had transformed my physical condition, and moved on to Bellingham Technical College to become a personal trainer in training. Now, I help others like myself to achieve a new level of health and fitness as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. And I have developed the "Still Kickin' " senior fitness program utilizing the movements of Asian martial arts to build strength, flexibility, range of motion and balance, for people from age 50 to 89. I am currently conducting six classes a week at three different locations in Bellingham WA.
