My passion for life is lived through boat racing!

I grew up around boats and being on the water. About seven years ago my father picked up this barn-find boat and restored it. Ever since I got behind the wheel I have been hooked.

I am part of a Father-Daughter vintage race team that we call The Dutchman Duo. Through this journey I have met many amazing people. Every summer I travel the country to participate in these events. I am fortunate enough that my Dad has passed this boat (007) onto me. Since then I have purchased several other vintage hulls to restore and make part of our “fleet”. With the constant abuse that 007 takes this means a lot of repair and maintenance.

This is where the fitness journey begins believe it or not. I have always had weak noodle arms. When working on engines you need to be the one in control, not the engine. In my case I was unable to do so; I became very frustrated. With a simple Google search of gyms near me, I found several gyms that offered what I was looking for. I tried these intro classes and I either left intimidated or feeling like I wouldn’t fit in there.

My sister recommended giving Torque a try. I am so glad I did. Right after my intro class with Coach Jake I couldn’t wait to sign up. Since being part of Torque I am so much stronger and am able to rebuild an engine and actually recently started rebuilding a boat. It’s so much easier now.

With success comes challenges and for a little while now my biggest challenge has been my personal life. It has hindered my progress for the lack of “me” time. I have had tremendous support from the Torque staff through the process, and within a short time will be regularly back at it in the group class.

My favorite part of Torque is that it doesn’t seem like you are working out; it feels like an adult version of a playground except everything is heavy.

My new goal is to become a better runner. I am currently in school furthering education to pursue a career in law enforcement. So now it is time to train my body. I am fully confident that I will reach my goals through Torque!
