The human body is an incredible thing, and keeping it healthy is a passion of Tate's. Tate's been dancing since she was three years old, and if she has learned one thing it would be that balance is a necessity. Diversity and balance are the keys to a healthy mind, body, and soul; and Group Fitness is an awesome way to incorporate them into exercise. Tate feels very lucky to be able to share her passion with others, and she hopes that his class will provide individuals with the perspective that exercise can be a source of joy and motivation.

Education:
BABA Accounting, Business Analytics, Anticipated June 2019
Certifications:
American Council on Exercise, Group Fitness Instructor, 2017
Yogafit Level 1 & 2

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