Mama to 2 awesome kids, Founder of Hot Mama Health & Fitness, Promoter of all things family fitness

My earliest memories are of going with my own Mama as she taught aerobics in leotards and legwarmers. I grew up with it. I started teaching when I was 17 and have taught from that point on. I love the way the body moves and adapts to exercise. I love it so much I thoroughly educated myself: I received a Bachelor of Physical Education, a Master’s of Science and ultimately a PhD in Exercise/Occupational Physiology. I founded Hot Mama in 2012, originally to bring joy to my life but it quickly exploded. My mission is to educate women, show them how to eat healthier, workout harder (safely and effectively) and find that balance of family-life and work. I dream of creating a movement of family fitness through parental role modeling. I am a very firm believer in monkey-see monkey-do.

Don't Just Ditch The Scale, Bash It

Quitting Is The Secret To My Success

The past few months have been filled with hard work. I have quit every day. And yet here I am, writing in the hopes that someone else will get it. Someone else out there quits every day right along with me, only to wake up the next day and start all over again.

As a continuation in my pursuit to help you remain sane over the four-day long weekend filled with candy chicks, chocolate eggs and Easter brunches smothered in hollandaise sauce, I figured the need for some nutrition tips was warranted.

Combat Mom Bum In 20 Minutes

You know the bum I'm talking about, right? A little saggy, a little flat, a little wider than what it used to be. Mom bum. The fact is the body changes, often permanently, during pregnancy. With each subsequent pregnancy, it can change more and more.

Get a Cardio Workout While You Clean

Cleaning. It's a necessary evil. It's also one of the top excuses given when people are asked why they didn't fit a workout in. Too many chores. Vacuuming to be done. Dishes to wash. Loads of laundry to fold. The list goes on. Certainly those chores do indeed need to be done, but the incredible thing about fitness is that you can fit it in while you complete your household chores.
