Business: MKBootcamp (personal trainer)
Facebook: MKBootcamp and personal training
I was born and raised in Minnesota and spent my younger days trying out many sports including softball, gymnastics and soccer. Eventually I landed in the pool and swam competitively from 7th grade into college until a nagging injury kept me from competing further and I endured my first reconstructive knee surgery. My swimming career was over but I was not finished as an athlete. I spent time working out and lifting weights with friends the rest of my college years.
In 2003, I met my husband who sparked my lifting career. Many nights were spent in the gym lifting weights, playing racquetball and tossing any challenge we could at each other. We got married in 2005, bought a house in 2007 and had our first son in 2008. Despite the craziness, I kept with the gym and began training for my first triathlon in 2009. I loved it so much I kept training intensely even after our second son was born in 2010.
In 2012, I shifted my focus to bodybuilding and competed in 2 figure competitions in 2013. I continued my love of fitness and nutrition and expanded my skillset in April 2014 by getting certified as a personal trainer. I began assisting others and launched MK bootcamp while having a full time job, being a wife and Mom to my boys. My passion for this part of my life grew so much that I resigned my full time post as an international logistic coordinator and became a full time personal trainer!
I currently spend my free time with my husband, 2 sons, and black lab puppy. I like to fish, hunt, garden and be active outside walking and biking.
