Brooke

Brooke’s love of health & fitness, along with an overpowering entrepreneur drive has led her on a journey to educate and coach other on health and lifestyle choices that encourage a more satisfying and fulfilling life. She firmly believes that a truly “satisfying” life occurs when there’s a harmony between the way we treat our body both physically and mentally, from the food we eat to the amount of physical activity we get and the personal journey we chose to follow, in order to have total wellness.

She coaches people to live a healthy and fit life with the motto of, “I don’t make excuses, I make results!”

Brooke is a Pilates and Barre instructor who loves to make each class challenging and fun!
