I LOVE FITNESS! I can’t remember a time in my life that exercise was not part of it. I started with dance at 5 years old, progressed to competitive gymnastics, high school sports and then to health club group fitness workouts. I began teaching Pilates and Yoga classes 23 years ago (wow, I’m aging myself). Then 11+ years ago, I got licensed in Zumba as a “fun activity” with my sister. Since then I am also a Strong Nation and Barre Above instructor, as well as obtaining my personal training certification. I cannot wait to share my passion for fitness with everyone who walks through One Spark Fitness’s door!

I am a certified Group Exercise instructor and Nutrition Coach, a licensed Strong Nation (HIIT) instructor, as well as, a licensed Zumba instructor. I have always enjoyed group fitness, from organized sports to attending an aerobic, step, bootcamp or weight lifting class. However, about 9 years ago, I got licensed to teach Zumba and it truly ignited my passion to lead others in their fitness journeys. There’s nothing better than watching a class smile and laugh while sweating their butts off! Being at One Spark is my happy place. In 2019, four months before we opened, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and staying active helped alleviate the negative effects of surgery and chemotherapy. OSF is truly medicine for the soul. When you come into a group fitness class, you are not only attending class for your physical health, but your emotional health as well. My closest relationships were started at the gym and that’s why I love the group exercise atmosphere.
I'm a licensed Zumba instructor whose main goal is to make dance fitness fun and accessible for everyone. I combine new rhythms and fresh music with easy to follow cueing to create a class that's great for beginners and still challenging for experts. My favorite rhythms are Hip-Hop, Cumbia, and Dembow. I am always learning and improving my Zumab skills by attending Zumba Jammer choreography sessions and master classes with experienced instructors.
My fitness journey started with gymnastics, which I began as a toddler and didn't stop until I was 16. After leaving competitive gymnastics, I joined the college diving team at West Chester University and competed in D2 1 meter and 3 meter springboard diving. Once my time in college ended, I felt lost trying to find what exercise and wellbeing looked like for me post competitive sports. Zumba quickly became the only thing that would get me active because it was so fun! Since then, I became an instructor in 2022, teaching at local YMCA's and now teaching at One Spark which has allowed me to let loose, have fun, and express myself more authentically as a dancer and an instructor.
I am a licensed Zumba instructor who loves all things fitness, dancing and running. I have been playing sports since I could walk and have always been an active person. I am so glad that One Spark has become such an important part of my fitness journey. Having maintained around an 80 pound weight loss for the last 10 years, I know how important it is to feel supported and motivated on your journey and One Spark is where you can find that. When not at One Spark or out on the trail, you can find me acting, singing or dancing at the theater. I have just begun to scratch the surface of my journey with Zumba, fitness, and choreography and cannot wait to dance with you all soon!
My name is Alex and group fitness is my thing! If you had asked me years ago what my fitness routine was, I would have laughed. However, after graduating college, I felt beyond uncomfortable in my skin. It pushed me to make a change and I haven’t looked back. Over the past five years, I have fallen in love with fitness through weight training, and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and have never felt more free.
The energy in the room after a workout class is infectious! It moved me so much I was inspired to take the leap and get my personal training certification. My heart is helping people. Being a certified personal trainer is an incredible opportunity to merge my love for helping people and fitness.
As a newer Phoenixville local, I discovered One Spark Fitness last winter by participating in the six-week challenge. It has been wonderful to experience One Spark Fitness as a member, and now as an instructor. Outside of class, you can catch me working on my Spotify playlist(s), walking my dog Boone, or groovin’ to Zumba tunes during the week!
I’m ready to help inspire you to find the movements that you love to welcome fitness into your life and feel free together!
