My name is Margaret Rowan and I am from Palatine IL a suburb of Chicago. I recently graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a B.S. in Kinesiology. and that is where my love of health & fitness began. I am a certified Group Exercise Instructor teaching in various formats and am also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. When I graduated from school in May of 2013 and moved back home I discovered an Endurance Cross Training program and instantly became addicted! We use anything from kettlebells to ropes to suspension training and my personal favorite the Ultimate Sandbag. Through the usage of all of this equipment I soon developed a passion for functional fitness cross training. ! Eventually I see myself with a career in Occupational Therapy while still pursuing my passion of helping others reach & exceed their fitness goals! I am now proud to say that I am a Level 1 DVRT Certified Instructor!
