Meet The Team
I am a certified personally trainer with the National Council on Strength and Fitness. I've competed in bodybuilding shows as a natural athlete and have over twenty-five years of training experience. I've helped athletes with training, posing, creating routines and selecting music that matches their body styles and personalities.
In 1999 I was certified with the National Council on Strength and Fitness and have been training since. I also held the position of Police Athletic League Coordinator for five years with the Newport News Police Department's P.A.L. unit where I created and ran the Fit Kids program. This program allowed high school students to train at a local gym for free.
Everything I've done in my life, from playing sports, being a former bodybuilder, joining the United States Marine Corps, to working as a Police Athletic League Coordinator, has prepared me to be my very best at this point and time. As a result of these life experiences, I can better serve the clients of MackaBella Fitness.
As a NPC women's physique division athlete, I have the utmost respect for what it takes to obtain the conditioning required to be worthy of such a title. My first competition was in 2012 at the Virginia Grand Prix, but I originally fell in love with the sport long before ever stepping foot on stage. I became hooked on the sport while attending the Arnold Classic and Mr. & Ms. Olympia year after year with my husband. It's amazing to see the best physiques in the world up close and personal!
I began spray tanning in 2013 and decided it would be rewarding to work behind the stage assisting other athletes when I wasn’t competing. In 2015 I joined the wonderful family at Liquid Sun Rayz. The training I received at LSR elevated my spray tanning skills to a completely different level. At MBF Spray Tanning, we pay special attention to the small details and provide services that others will find hard to match! And for our clients that we train, this allows us to offer our support backstage during competition. It feels amazing knowing that you are a part of the competitor's journey.
In 2014 I received my Massage Therapy License from the American Spirit Institute in Williamsburg, Virginia.
In 2006, we gave birth to a concept. We felt there was a need for an affordable and innovative fitness company in our area, one that cared about the clients they served and one that was family oriented. In 2007, MackaBella Fitness was born! We started with personal training and have since added Spray Tanning and Massage Therapy to our services.
In 2015, we certified with Liquid Sun Rayz to provide our competitive fitness clients and our everyday tanning clients with the very best tanning products and services on the market. Our clients deserve the very best and we take great pride in providing exceptional services.
At MBF, we want to teach you to respect and develop your mind and body. If your goal is to compete, we would like to spray on your battle armor before you step on stage. Or perhaps you are attending a special event or just enjoy a healthy looking tan, without the damaging effects of the sun. And when your mind, body and spirit needs to be rejuvenated, MBF Massage will be there as well to assure that your machine is functioning at its highest performance level.
