  • Starting September the YMCA is offering something brand new. ZONE TRAINING – Stronger with Every Beat.
    • World-class athletes have long known zone training is a must to train effectively for optimal performance. Optimize your Y exercise experience by applying this training in the group exercise realm! Train like the athletes and get the most out of every minute invested in your workout. By participating in this voluntary interval-style program, learn how intensely you should work during class to see the greatest results. By seeing zones on a large TV screen and wearing a heart rate monitor (ANT+Bluetooth capability required – use your own or purchase at the Y), you’ll be able to hold yourself accountable to the recommended zones by pushing harder or knowing when to back off. Even better, afterwards you’ll receive an email summarizing your workout.

Eighteen years ago, I moved to Knoxville after graduating college and fell in love with the city that has now truly become my home. Shortly after moving here, I married my college sweetheart, and when not working we set out to travel as much as we could. After working as a financial manager for six years, I welcomed my first son Nolan in 2010 and began a journey as a stay-at-home mom. Two years later we added another baby boy, Conley, to make us a family of four. In June 2016, we welcomed our third boy, Foster. I founded Knoxville Moms in November 2013 which began my career as a work-from-home mom, and it grew to the expansion of Chattanooga Moms in March 2016. We welcomed our first girl, Lilah, in November 2017 making us a family of six and adding a little pink in our house. In June of 2021, I became co-owner of Atlanta Mom and in March 2022 the new owner of Nashville Moms. When I'm not chasing the kids or stepping on Legos you can find me enjoying a cup of coffee, reading a good book, and dreaming about my toes in the sand. I enjoy meeting new people and love to connect the moms of Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta, and Nashville.
