“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” - Maya Angelou 


April is a Shoals area native, a proud mom of three, and married to the love of her life. She’s a Navy veteran and holds a master’s degree in social work. Her fitness career began over a decade ago as a personal trainer, specializing in strength conditioning and CrossFit, having experience training people from all walks of life. 

After being out of the fitness industry for several years,  her passion for training was rekindled because of the environment at Grit. “The best thing about Grit is that everyone is loved, accepted and important. It’s not about the way you look or who’s the fittest. It’s truly about connection and support. I’m so proud to be a part of this team.”
