BABA Accounting, Business Analytics, 2019
American Council on Exercise, Group Fitness Instructor, 2017
Yogafit Level 1 & 2

Abby is all about leading an active lifestyle, which means bringing a little movement into each and every day in whatever way makes one feel happy. She is a firm believer that exercise is one of the keys to finding contentment in one’s life, and she does her best to weave that moral through the group fitness classes that she teaches. She currently teaches Redhawk Fit and Yoga Flow, and although these are very different formats energy-wise, they both feel authentic to her and the themes of tailoring one’s workout to their body and finding moments for introspection fit in both contexts. She loves to see people working toward their own goals in her classes and seeing their progression from week to week brings her a lot of joy. If you are looking for a way to get active or bring a little more intention to your exercise, she would be happy to see you in her classes!
