After achieving my black belt, competing and performing on an international level, I realized the impact I could potentially make. I had a very deep desire to inspire, and motivate others in living a “positive, healthy, fit, confident and strong” life. In the early 1990’s I pursued my passion opened USA Karate and Fitness Center in Naples, FL.
Later I was a key player in bringing martial arts mainstream, as coordinator for the Arnold Schwarzenegger Martial Arts Festival (ASF). After that I won the North American Kickboxing Championship, and started developing several training programs including the sdi7 HIIT, Self Defense Workout for Women, Street Kombat, Karatics - The Knockout Workout. These programs combine the elements of self-defense, fighting skills, boxing, kickboxing, MMA workouts, strength plus conditioning, core and abdominal exercises. Designed to be physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually; Building the will win from the inside out.
One of my top priorities has always been working with the youth, and inspiring them to believe in themselves. The most rewarding accomplishment for me was creating “My Start Strong Stay Strong Program” - addressing Obesity and Bullying through:
- Youth Fitness
I’ve learned so much from great leaders and past experiences, I am taking that knowledge and paving the way for a more confident, healthier, and stronger future. Fitness is not just a passion it’s an obsession, it’s a movement we all need to embrace. The health of our nation has gone down the drain, and street crimes are on the rise. You have the power to change that, I have the desire to show you how. It is not going to be easy, but it will be the best gift you can give yourself.
