My name is Patty and I am the owner of Fitness Xone. I have been in the fitness industry for over 20 years. I have a personal trainer & group fitness certification by the American Fitness Aerobic Association. I am a licensed Zumba ® Instructor, Zin member, certified MixxedFit Instructor and certified in additional formats. I have a A.A.S. degree, which gives me knowledge of mobility, fitness & wellness.
I am a wife, mother & worker, whose passion to help others enjoy fitness as much as I do, led me to the career choice of opening a fitness studio. Fitness Xone is an extension of my lifelong mission to share the benefits and joy of exercise and healthy living with others.
My favorite things to do are: snow skiing, snorkeling, biking, reading, spending time with my family and of course teaching fitness classes.
Things I don’t like: green beans, pickles, snakes, turtleneck sweaters and driving in the rain.
My past fitness employment history includes: 24 Hour Fitness, The Greenhouse Spa, LifeTime Fitness, Stretch-n-Grow, The University of Texas at Arlington and the YMCA.
Living a healthy active lifestyle is for everyone. I hope to see you soon at Fitness Xone!
I’ve always loved to dance so when I found out about Zumba, I knew I wanted to try it. I started taking classes about 3 years ago & absolutely fell in love with it. So much so I found myself taking classes 4-6 times a week. Not only has it helped me lose almost 100 lbs (still going) to date, it has allowed me to meet many wonderful people whom I now call friends.
While I enjoy teaching, attending classes & events, I also love being a wife, a mother of one beautiful daughter & working full-time for the City of Arlington at the Convention Center.
My favorite things to do are: cooking, camping, going on vacation (usually to the beach), spending time with family, friends and my dogs, doing craft projects and of course dancing.
Some things I don’t like: Food that is too spicy (I’m a wimp), cucumbers (but love pickles), being outside when it’s crazy hot, waiting in long lines & not being able to visit family & friends in other states more often.
I hope to dance with you soon at Fitness Xone. Let’s get in shape together & have a blast doing it!
