Shortly after graduating from UTEP, she moved to the little apple, Manhattan, KS to attend Kansas State University. There she was quickly hired as a personal trainer in campus recreation while pursuing another degree in Dietetics. She later expanded into instructing group exercise classes and has continued to teach ever since. With 8+ years’ experience as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor, she has taught a variety of classes to include:
HIIT, Boot Camps, Zumba, Cycling, and Yoga. She comes with five years of city recreation experience where she helped build a fitness program. Mitzie has always loved campus recreation and is happy to go from being a K-State wildcat to a Texas State Bobcat!
Mitzie’s first taste in the gym started with the desire to compete in a pageant and prepared by exercising regularly, and eating a vegetable or two when she could. She loved it so much she switched her major and is happy to have made a career in fitness because of it.
Her favorite hobbies include dancing Bachata, and experimenting with new music genre’s in her group exercise classes, as she has previously worked as a DJ before, but for now only plans to be the DJ in her exercise classes. Her favorite class to instruct-Zumba! She also now eats more than two vegetables most days. #workinprogress
