Yvette moved to Columbus in 1989 from Illinois and started working out a bit, but work and school kept her busy and she stopped working out for a while. Yvette took a BodyPump class in 2008 and got hooked and decided to become an instructor a few short months after taking classes. When she first started teaching, she only wanted to sub classes and shortly thereafter started teaching a few days a week. Because she runs and teaches, she says on her run days, she's going to take it easy, but that never happens because the music, the moves and the energy, you don’t want to take it easy! Whether it’s your first time or 100th time taking Yvette's class, her goal is to make it fun and never make it dull. Yvette loves teaching but she does it for the members.
