Why is it dynamic?
It involves a variety of fitness training modalities i.e. core, balance, function, mobility, and strength. Intensity is based on your level of fitness and intention for the day. This is a great workout for anyone looking to lose some weight, build strength, move with ease, and feel better.

Body Renew 2015 Member of the Year!
I understand all too well the struggles of overcoming some of life’s greatest obstacles. In my mid 30’s, I was diagnosed with Leukemia, spending the next ten years fighting my illness and all the of the treatment’s fallout. This included having two full shoulder joint replacement surgeries and two full hip joint replacement surgeries. In 2012, after all I had conquered; I was ready to lose the 70 plus pounds I had gained throughout my years of treatment and immobility. I then made the choice for lifestyle changes, necessary to improve my health, relationships and quality of life. I’m proud of not only meeting, but exceeding my initial life and fitness goals.
I have made Health, Wellness, and Fitness my new normal.
