Meet the Clif Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors, and Staff!
Staying home for the past 23 years and raising my 3 children has been a dream job. But, they are all grown now and I am fortunate enough to be able to pursue my long time dream of opening a fitness facility. I started working out with a personal trainer 20 years ago to get into shape and lose the baby fat and have never looked back.
Health and fitness are my passion and I am very excited about the opportunity to bring a unique gym that has been two years in the making to the OKC community. Our goal is to appeal to fitness minded people of every level and to offer an upscale gym with competitive pricing.
I am lucky to have surrounded myself with my team of core trainers who have been very committed and instrumental in helping me to achieve my goal and bring The Clif Fitness to reality.
We hope to see you soon!

I’m a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM (National Academy Sports Medicine). I was the Head Trainer at Gaillardia for the last 18 years. I am the owner and director of Dynamite Volleyball Club.

My passion for fitness began through my love of sports and my time spent as an athlete. I specialize in corrective exercise. I have a background in health, nutrition, group training, functional movement, and athletic performance training. My approach to fitness emphasizes age-appropriate programming for athletes as well as helping individuals achieve their fitness goals, no matter their age.
