I have a group who wants to train with you, what do I do?
Check out my Training Programs section under group training. There is a book now button for the package you want. I would recommend paying on one card together. If this is an issue, I will be happy to set up individual payments for groups.

Yes, speaking is a passion I have and will create a lecture that is fun, interactive, informative and helpful for teaching and educating on fitness and nutrition.

Do you train athletes as well?
Yes! I have and area of specialization in gymnastics, but also know the fundamentals of sport and sport-specific training for most athletes.

Do you train men?
Yes! I prefer to train women because I am a woman and have had so much success with my own physique and countless others. I know a woman’s body and I feel a woman trains a woman better than a man. Call me sexist, but I believe its true. I feel my strengths and passion are with women, but am happy to train men and boys.

I have a home gym, can you come to me?
Absolutely! See my Training Programs page for details.


I am not a real fan of working out, and I’ve realized the only way I consistently work out is when I have a personal trainer: someone to hold me accountable to work out on a regular basis, to hold me accountable during the workout, and to challenge me more than I would if I were working out on my own. Specifically, my lower back had really started bothering me quite a bit over the previous 6-12 months. I had been to the doctor and had been to physical therapy, but nothing seemed to be helping. My daughter just seemed amused that mom was getting older and starting to have back problems. For me, it wasn’t as amusing. I felt too young to be having these types of issues already. A few years ago, Betsy held a summer boot camp, which I attended one day a week for about 45 minutes. She asked those of us in the group what we wanted to work on or what we needed to work on. As expected, we all said something different; my comment was to work on reducing stress and pain I fel t in my lower back when I would bend over. Betsy said I had a weak core and incorporated core exercises into our total workout. It was a tough workout, but I felt really good at the end of each session. After the 2 or 3 month boot camp ended, my core was MUCH stronger. Each workout was a mixture of cardio and strength training for the whole body, so my overall fitness was much better as well. I play softball, so the overall strength and improved cardio only helped me in softball as well. To this day, several years later, my lower back no longer bothers me, and I have Betsy to thank for that. I continue to try to make sure I’m keeping my core strong so I won’t have back issues again. I have had good workouts from other trainers, but no one has been as great of a trainer as Betsy. I wish I still lived somewhere near her. If I did, she would definitely be my personal trainer for life! Miss you, Betsy!
