Sharon is Wellness Director of the Hammond/Griffith Family YMCAs. She is a graduate of the the National Personal Training Institute in Chicago, earning an impressive average in a comprehensive, hands-on program featuring 100 hours each in exercise theory & practice, basic nutrition, and anatomy & physiology. She is experienced in all facets of personal training, including performing fitness assessments, conducting corrective exercise & postural analysis, designing effective exercise programs tailored to client’s goals, providing nutritional analysis, and motivating clients in a positive, supportive environment.

"I believe that health and fitness is a lifelong journey. I meet clients where they are on this path, assessing their capabilities, listening to their goals and designing an individualized, research-based program that will help them realize their unique potential," she explains. A certified personal trainer through National Academy of Sport Medicine (NASM), Sharon also holds certificates in kettlebell training and boot camp instruction.

In addition to personal training, the ACE-certified group exercise instructor also shares her passion for fitness by teaching boot camp and other classes. Good health has not always come easy for Sharon. "I've had my battles with the scale and at one time was diagnosed with prediabetes and high cholesterol. That was the wake-up call I needed. I had seen the toll these conditions had taken on family members. I slowly worked my way back to a healthy weight and reversed these conditions through sensible diet and exercise. Now, I am truly healthy, in the best shape of my life and full of energy. I love it when people think I am 10 years younger than I am."

Sharon has the experience and tools necessary to help you succeed in your journey. Please give her a call to find out how she can guide and inspire you.

    Sharon is awesome! I attend her High Intensity Interval Training class at the Hammond YMCA, and I have lost weight and gained muscle and confidence. Sharon encourages you to work to your fullest and makes modifications to exercises as necessary.

    Also, Sharon never ever asks us to do anything that she does not do herself. I highly recommend any class that she teaches! Also, because the High Intensity Interval Training class is so small (less than 10 people), I am able to get personal pointers and assistance tailored to me and my fitness level. From my perspective (admittedly from classes only), Sharon would be a great personal trainer as she's able to motivate, listen and instruct.
