Shellie and the other instructors (Cris!) have great energy! It’s a great group of people to work out with...the positive atmosphere keeps you motivated!
My fitness journey started about 5 years ago when I decided to
make some positive changes in my life! It began with losing 48lbs,
and spiraled from there! Fitness has ALWAYS been a part of my life
and began, truly, when I was just 5yrs old with my very first dance
class. I attended the Milwaukee HS of the Arts and began teaching
dance classes at just 14yrs old. I studied Ballet, Tap, Jazz and
Modern. So when I was given the opportunity to sub in the dance
fitness program a few years ago, I jumped on it!!! I obtained my
AFAA Primary Group Fitness Certification which enabled me to teach
aerobic and weight training in the Group Fitness setting, and
shortly thereafter became Piloxing certified, receiving my first
regular spot on the Group Fit schedule! My Ujam Dance Fitness
Certification came next and opened up a whole new world of dance
for me in the fitness world!
My very first experience with Tae Bo Fitness was opening week here, November 2012, at Team Tae Bo Fitness in Franklin (now called Shell Shock Fitness)…and needless to say, it was LOVE at first punch! I currently hold Tae Bo-Basic, Tae Bo-Advanced and Tae Bo-Extreme certifications and was blessed beyond measure when Shellie & Mark Cimarosti asked me to become part of the greatest T.E.A.M in the world!!!
My husband, Chris House (also a T.E.A.M enthusiast!!) and I have been married for 15yrs and have 2 beautiful children, Ben 13yrs old and Emma 10yrs old. I am a Registered Nurse by profession and currently work at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in the CVICU.
My greatest blessings have come from this wonderful path that
God is leading me down, and not a day goes by where I don’t look
up, look in, look out…and give my thanks to Him!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
