Message from Ruthie:
It is my passion and calling to inspire those I meet. My client testimonials describe how precisely I can push you and open you up to feel your very best, finding the results you seek. With me in your inbox, on your phone, on your screen or in person you will develop the tools to have the sleekest strongest figure you picture.
I have not always been in peak shape myself. Like you, I have a unique body and an up and down past. I have struggled back from very low lows and injuries centralizing how good I feel when I eat great and am at my healthiest weight. I started practicing yoga in 2004 to begin challenging my strength and flexibility. In 2009, I was asked to teach a Saturday Yoga class at Curt’s Ultimate Fitness and Fighting gym where the professional and amateur competitors improved flexibility and practiced meditation and visualization. When I was 16, I began teaching in team sports camps community centers in Portland, OR. From these small beginnings of coaching kids to improve their physical performances and teaching myself yoga at home with no mat and no instructor, I have been developing the art of Figure for Exercise.
In 2013, I moved to Oahu, Hawaii where I fell in love with and married my amazing husband. On Oahu, I have delighted in training activity duty service members and greater warrior class community members. These folks pick up, move, and reestablish their home wherever their branch of service orders their families too. I have had the honor of helping them keep the figures they want through this process.
In 2015, my husband and I decided to start a family. Pregnancy is a unique stage for women. Through my child-bearing experience, I have exercised with more attuned intuition for what my body needs, which I can pass on to moms-to-be through their pregnancies and recovery seasons.
