Hi, I am Sandra. I live in Birmingham Alabama and have two children, Ellie and Ben. I have been in the fitness industry for over 25 years. Health and fitness has always been my passion. I started teaching group exercise classes in college and have continued to do so ever since. I have always been interested in preventive medicine and how to keep people healthy. After about two years of college and changing majors each semester, I finally figured out which direction I needed to go ...I followed my passion. Fitness and nutrition have always gone together in my mind, so I got a degree in fitness and continued my education with a masters in nutrition. I hoped that one day I would be able to use them together.
My first job was as a clinical nutritionist at a local hospital. I worked there for 10 years, and although it was a great job and I learned so much, it was not what I wanted to do. When I had my daughter, I quit work to stay at home with her. I kept teaching classes, but did not go back to work until my son went to school. At this point, the time was right to do what I had always wanted to do. People seemed to be starting to realize the importance of nutrition. They were beginning to understand that the two go hand in hand for good health. It was the perfect time to start Fuel + Fitness.
Fuel + Fitness is my way of sharing my experience and expertise with the world. I have realized as we get older, eating and exercise habits have to change. So many of us just do not know what to change. Through this program I am able to educate people and help them make better choices. I am also a big believer in core training. It is the quickest way to getting muscles to pop. My Horizontal Conditioning dvd series is my answer to toning the body from head to toe from the inside out. Horizontal training combined with clean eating leads to amazing results and health. My wish is for all of us to learn how to take care of our bodies and to have energy and health throughout our lives.
