Having a lifelong involvement in sports and athletics, becoming certified to teach group fitness in 2003 was a natural progression for Valerie. She received her AFAA Group Fitness certification in college, after declaring an exercise physiology major. Following college, she decided to broaden my clientele to one-on-one instruction with a Personal Training certification through ACE. Valerie feels truly passionate about fitness and finds it extremely rewarding to educate and motivate others to lead a healthier, more fit lifestyle. She is currently training full-time and teaching Hardcore, Work-out Challenge and Pre-Post Natal Exercise (Healthy Moms cert) at LVAC.
