About Coach

I spent the entirety of my 8 year Army career battling the stereotype that women "can't." I refused to believe that we were a weaker gender, or that we were given things and not earned. I was tired of the narrative "Girl Pushups" or "Throw like a Girl. (I have played softball all my life)" They should be the hardest kinds of pushups and the fastest kinds of throws. I have dedicated my life to empowering women through physical fitness and showing them how to become strong not only physically, but mentally as well.

Turning Point

When I exited the Army my enemy was self-loathing and self-doubt. I knew what I wanted to do, but I was told by my former leadership that I would never survive without the Army. Thankfully I had my family and a few mentors who _literally_ stayed on me about pursuing my dreams, I did it. I opened up Dub Fitness. Dub represents the 'W' from my last name. Something that no one could take away from me.

Motivation & Passion

Dub gave, and still gives, my purpose to wake up each day, something for which to live. There are some days when I would wonder if I would still be here, had I not started this gym and always had a group of women counting on me to be their leader. I began to have purpose again and started living the life I knew I deserved. The transformations I have seen over the last decade are what fuel my soul and the women around the gym. It's inspiring to see weakness become a strength, and fear becomes tenacity. My motivation is to touch the lives of women who DESERVE to be in control, to hold the power, and to live the life they dream.
