Alyssa has been working for HealthFit Gym Since January 2017. Her passion for health and fitness started after her daughter was born when she worked on her own to lose 80 pounds! Ever since, she has been dedicated to living and leading a healthy life while helping others to do the same. Her passions led her to The University of Colorado where she got her Bachelor degree in Biomedical Science in 2015, and her Master degree in Biology with an emphasis on Human Biology in 2017. Originally from Mississippi, Alyssa grew up in a military family and has lived in places around the world. She ended up in Colorado and fell in love with the mountains, so she settled down and grew roots here in 2010. She grew up swimming competitively from a young age and really discovered her love of fitness and health when she started coaching the sport. Having coached youth to adult swimmers, she has experience working with a wide variety of populations with varying levels of expertise and limitations and is well equipped to work with others, regardless of their health status. Alyssa lives in Castle Rock with her husband, daughter and son.
