Beth has been a personal trainer and massage therapist for the past three years. Being able to see the human body from both angles has greatly increased her ability to understand and train it. Since being involved in sports at such a young age, both as a player and a coach, jumping into the group x world feels like home for beth. She has recently become...let's just say...slightly obsessed with mud and obstacle races. Moving to Colorado has opened up a lot more fitness doors for her as well, including snowboarding, stand-up paddle-boarding, rock climbing, and longboarding. Needless to say, she knows the value of true cross-training!

Libby does not believe in the perfect size or perfect weight, but rather that the “perfect body” is one that you are taking care of and are comfortable in. She originally came to yoga as a way to increase her flexibility to complement her strength and cardio routines. Upon discovering that yoga had much more to offer, she enrolled in a teacher training program. She received her 300- and 500-hour certifications from the Yoga Shala in Portland, OR. Libby believes that yoga is for everyone and has strong therapeutic benefits ~ physically of course, but also mentally and spiritually. Practicing yoga increases mindfulness — in the gym, in the kitchen, driving…in fact, everywhere! She loves teaching classes with fun music and a playful element, and, believing in the power of cross training, always tries to mix it up and keep it fresh.
When Libby is not teaching, she enjoys snowboarding, traveling, cooking, reading, and hiking.
