Gina has always been physically active, but her intentional pursuit of health and wellness truly started for her after the loss of a close friend. An overwhelming and consuming depression followed this loss for a period of several months until a friend reached out with an invitation to join a group fitness program. The community, encouragement of the other women in the program made it possible for Gina to stay engaged with a program of physical fitness and healthy eating choices. Ultimately the depression broke. She stayed engaged in exercise and healthy eating, and continues to reap the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits today. Gina is driven to share her story with others and offer them the same avenue of relief, joy, peace and health that she found through exercise, healthy eating and a like-minded community. In 2015 Gina became certified with Beachbody and obtained her PiYo Instructor certificate in January of 2018. She obtained her group fitness instructor certification in August of 2018. She is excited to work with the Young At Heart community and serve those who are in pursuit of their own personal health and fitness goals.
