WHERE SHE GREW UP: Northeast Philadelphia; together with her husband they are now known as the “snowbirds” – splitting their time between their home in Bucks county in the summer and Florida in the winter.
ABOUT BEVERLY: Beverly was first introduced to fitness by her mom, when she was 14 years old and they started working out together. She would pick Beverly up everyday after work at 4:30 pm and take her to to one of the very first all-women’s workout facilities in Northeast Philly. Beverly is lucky to be married to her best friend whom she also met at age 14 (her lucky number!) Together they have 3 beautiful children and 3 grandchildren. Her family is her passion, and fitness is a close second. She’s been a fitness instructor for 28 years with a long list of certifications in many different formats. Beverly loves to motivate people, as well as educate them to live a healthier life – and it shows in every class she teaches!
TRAINING PHILOSOPHY: Enabling all body types to develop a healthy, long, and lean muscular body. Working hard to get that feel-good feeling and adrenaline rush at the end! You would hear members who love her class describe her as “a ball of energy”, “very animated”, and a “firecracker”. Time flies when she leads you through a hard workout, leaving your brain flooded with endorphins afterwards for the entire day to come. Her music selection is also a reflection of her high energy style – latest hits, classic rock, alternative, higher octave, inspirational, anything that makes you want to move.
THINGS SHE LOVES TO DO: Bev is always up for a good challenge, and there has never been one that she at least didn’t try to conquer, She prides herself in always learning and trying new things, even when she is afraid or somebody tells her she can’t do it (which always makes it an even more interesting challenge). She recently taught herself to roller blade, and now is really enjoying the fun that comes with it.
FAVORITE QUOTE: “Work smarter, not harder”.
THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE HER: warm, energetic, disciplined.
