Founder

Denise is a veteran of more than thirty years in the fitness industry and as Past President of the Utah Fitness Instructors Association, felt it very important to continue to bring the finest fitness education to the Intermountain area for a reasonable cost to fitness professionals.  Thus, fitness.edu™ was launched to fulfill  that mission.

She has taught at Salt Lake Community College in the Health and Lifetime Activities department for 20 years, the University of Utah from 1991-2012, and she has been teaching group fitness since the very beginning - the Jazzercise, Jane Fonda days!

She was a professional ballroom dancer for 8 years and continues her passion for dance, teaching at Salt Lake Community College, Murray Art Center (The MAC) and the Salt Lake County Employee Fitness Center, as well as group and private ballroom dance classes.

She also teaches Dance Fitness for OSHER at the University of Utah.
