A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.

I love my work as a TRYBE coach. For years I have studied biomechanics, anatomy, and exercise science… attended certifications and workshops for Pilates, Yoga, TRX, and Barre… and my passion for understanding the inner-workings of meditation, writing, and breath work also influence my training method. I often laugh when I hear clients describe me as a body whisperer, a psychic, or the “I-don’t-know-how-she-knows-it” personal trainer.
But honestly, I simply listen.
Your day-to-day life tells me exactly how to design a simple, healthy system that gives you support, respect, and results. If you are like most of my clients, your day is overwhelmed with family, work, school, activities, and friends… and all you want is to find the energy and sanity to make it through the next hour without completely losing your mind! You are my priority and my job is to give you the perfect combination of living healthy and happy within your daily routine.
Over the past 35 years, I have personally trained thousands of women seeking harmony in their life. At first I hear the “tell me what-to-eat diet plan and how-many-days-do-I-have-to- workout program”, but as we talk, I guide the conversation to hear your desire to experience joy, to be confident, and to live a vibrant life again. I believe the equation… the magic… the secret to living a vibrant life is to feel happiness in your heart, to express yourself creatively, to respect and honor who you are today, and to surround yourself with a community of like-minded people.
To all my incredibly strong, fit, confident, intelligent, family-first guys… thank you for being the anchors in the studio and supporting the beautiful women in your life!

When I stepped into Mary Kay’s studio more than eight years ago, the first thing she noticed about me was my posture, and the way I walk. I do kind of walk like a duck, but that has been handed down from my mom’s side of the family—I cant fix that! Ha! But my posture I CAN and DID! Mary Kay noticed that I had a tendency to slump my shoulders. I think it was my way of hiding and making myself smaller in this big world we live in! She immediately was concerned and then modeled what I looked like, but did it in a very kind and caring way. Whoa, I look like that? Mary Kay then physically and gently put her hands on my shoulders and spine to correct my posture. Wow! Who Knew? What a difference a little correction made in my life—both physically and mentally!
I went home that day and her encouraging words and touch haunted me. I no longer wanted to be that person who is not seen and heard! From that day on, a 3-minute discussion with Mary Kay changed my life! I now have body awareness and walk with my shoulders back and spine straight. I have the confidence and strength I need to be the best that I can be.
Trybe and Mary Kay go beyond just “working out”! It is a home where I feel comforted, accepted, and cared for—far beyond a physical workout. Mary Kay takes care of ALL of me—my body and soul.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Mary Kay… you make me better with your presence, knowledge, kindness, thoughtfulness and friendship. I’m thankful to Mary Kay for keeping me healthy—on the inside and out.
Strength. Support. Love.
I am strong. My body does what I ask of it in nearly every situation as a result of my work at the studio, whether it be cycling, golfing, skiing or running. In my eight years at the studio my endurance in all my recreational sports has continually improved and my strength allows me to jump into the recreation I enjoy without fear of injury, muscle soreness or fatigue.
I am supported. The studio makes me whole. It is my sanctuary where I am not judged. I am supported by my peers, and accepted for who I am. We all encourage one another and hold each other accountable for our exercise, nutrition and personal goals. I can cry, laugh, sweat and laugh some more because I am free and happy in the moment. We are not swim suit models—we are strong, capable men and women who ask much of our bodies in daily life and we love seeing it in each other. My gratitude for this community that embraces me when I walk through the door is immeasurable.
I am loved. My closest friendships have developed from people I have met at the studio as a result of a shared outlook that embraces what is positive, powerful and forward looking. I am proud to call this my tribe and invite others to our open arms.
Before my love for TRX I was a gym rat, lifting weights and walking on a boring old treadmill with little results. I did it because I had to but, I wasn’t passionate about it. Then I discovered Trybe and my life changed dramatically—it was exactly what I always longed for in so many ways. Not only did I lose weight and inches and find my “core” (yes, we all have one), I increased my stamina and self confidence.
This has been a long journey and I have a lot to be thankful for—the support and lasting friendships I’ve made along the way has made every “tabatas” and “metabolic” workout worth it. Now I can truly say I found my passion!
