Holding a license in Massage Therapy as well as my personal trainer certification, I have gained a working knowledge of the human body and how it’s supposed to function. My passion for fitness developed from being a multi-sport athlete in baseball, soccer, basketball, track, cross country and swimming. After my college running career, I became a high school cross country, swimming and track coach which led to my decision to dive deeper into the field of fitness. My approach to fitness emphasizes the mind & body connection and a client based program to ensure each individual reaches their goals and continues their journey beyond what they initially thought possible. I have established long-term client interactions with the goal of integrating exercise and optimal wellness into the demands of daily life. I am known for my joking attitude and making people laugh, which is a great life tool.


Exercise is one of the most beneficial activities you can engage in. Not only does it promote muscle growth, heart health, and bone density, but it has benefits that reach beyond physical. I believe exercise is essential to discipline, confidence, and overall mental and emotional health. I started lifting when I was 14. Over years of training, I found the importance of building a foundation, slowing down, and building back up. Balance and stability are just as important as explosive movements and heavy lifts. I like to start slow with my clients and set goals for them, focusing on form, stability, and balance. Then gradually upping the intensity to whatever their needs be. Whatever your goals are I will work with you and lead you on your way to achieving them. 


I began running competitively at the age of twelve. I became certified as a Personal Trainer eager to help others live a clean and healthy lifestyle. Whatever the goals, no matter the restrictions, there is always a way to reach an optimal state of physical fitness for all levels and ages.


I started my fitness journey in 2017. After a few months of maintaining a consistent exercise schedule, I hired a personal trainer at the City Center YMCA. He introduced me to the barbell, and I immediately fell in love. Weight training has since become an essential and rewarding part of my life. I enjoy training for strength, health, physique, and longevity—and I plan to be strong, healthy, and active in the weight room long into old age!

I have degrees in education, business, and social work, and I have long been involved in the helping professions. Between my professional background and my personal commitment to physical activity, working as a personal trainer was a natural next step. I love working with others to help them set and achieve goals and enjoy themselves along the way.

I believe:

  • Exercise is essential to our physical and mental wellbeing.
  • Fitness and wellness are a lifestyle that involves a balance of mindful goal-setting, hard work, discipline, commitment, consistency, and rest.
  • This lifestyle is a lifelong journey with no finish line, so it’s important to enjoy the process just as much as the progress and the achievements.
  • Everyone starts somewhere, and it’s never too late to begin your journey.
  • Everyone’s wellness journey is unique; our approach to fitness, exercise, and nutrition should reflect our individual preferences and needs


I am an educator, athlete, and forever student. After running track at the collegiate level and holding long term university records, Beth proceeded to receive her bachelor’s and master’s degree in the field of Education. She has been teaching in the Special Education field for 30 years. Her love and extensive knowledge about running led her to become a track coach at Millersville University, Lancaster Catholic High School, and more. Passionate about conditioning, health and nutrition, Beth earned certifications as a Spin instructor and Personal trainer. Beth has been instructing indoor cycling for 10+ years. Some of her personal achievements include- completing 30 + triathlons and being a mom of 3. In her down time, you can find her cycling through Lancaster and Cumberland Counties, taking a hike, kayaking or relaxing at her cabin home.


I am so happy to be a part of the City Y training team. I entered the fitness world about 10 years ago as a group fitness instructor. In 2017, I decided to get my personal training certification by AAAI/ISMA in hopes to learn more about form, benefits of strength training and the “why” behind different exercises.

My goal as a personal trainer is to help people gain skills to have good form, balance , and challenge themselves to come out of their comfort zones for full body workouts.
Since I am a full-time educator, my strengths are to individualize workouts and make attainable goals for each participant.

In all honesty, I hope to work myself out of a job because they will feel so safe and confident with their knowledge that they can start to lead their own exercises on the wellness floor.
