I’m Shannon, a desert-dwelling native who is loving all the outdoor activities Oregon has to offer! Fitness is very important to me and I find it extremely therapeutic. You will see me at the front desk and instructing some of our amazing group fitness classes!
There’s nothing a nice, hard trail run, or a challenging CrossFit WOD can’t help with. Fitness and proper nutrition is helping me to elevate my life plus my mentality, and I am grateful to be able to participate. On a day away from the facility you can find me out hiking (if it’s not too rainy!), hanging out with my boyfriend and our two fantastic dogs, reading as many books as possible, watching movies, doing anything involving being out in the sun, and chasing down my dreams.
My love of fitness began with competitive sports in high school and college. I have been involved in athletics and fitness for over 18 years as an athlete, coach, and trainer. I am always continuing my education in Sports Management, Wellness and Fitness. I am a NASM certified personal trainer as well as a USAW L1 coach.
You will see me at the front desk and instructing some of our excellent group fitness classes.
I strive to constantly increase my knowledge base in order to provide the best service, qualified instruction, and most effective methods of training for our members. You can always expect a fun, engaging, yet challenging experience when training with me.
You will find me working in our Kids Club or on the floor working out next to the greatest gym members around!
I enjoy powerlifting, eating sushi, and spending my free time with my husband and children. On a day off, you could find me down at the Bayfront eating clam chowder with my family.
I love working in the Kids Club, and when not working, it allows me to have a stress free workout knowing my kiddos are provided a safe and fun environment.
