A Michigan native, Angela attended the College for Creative Studies in Detroit where she studied Art Direction. During that time, she started teaching in the health and fitness space and eventually opened a small studio offering personal training and small group classes. Always striving to push herself, she finished Ironman 140.6 triathlons in Louisville and Madison and recently placed top 5 in four NPC Western Michigan figure competition categories. She brings to her clients the same SMART goal setting and strategies for exercise programs and nutritious meal preparation that she includes in her daily routine and feels that the combination of both can help improve energy, body composition, and achievement of personal health and performance goals.
