Les Mills Certified Instructor RPM, CXWorx, BodyPump, BodyAttack
Desiree joined Trillium as a member in 2010 because she wanted to start taking better care of herself; totally unaware that there was a silent killer lurking in her bones. While training for her first triathlon in 2011 she sustained a stress fracture in her hip, preventing her from competing and revealing she had advanced osteopenia, border line osteoporosis. SCARY!!! She has been able to increase her bone density without pharmaceuticals by strength training with Les Mills Body Pump and Les Mills CXWorx.
She has since competed in four sprint triathlons, two Ironman 70.3 relay teams, the Seneca 77.7 relay, several 5 and 10k’s, half marathons and has plans to complete a 70.3 Ironman. She has been an active race volunteer for Syracuse 70.3, Syracuse Half Marathon and The Good Samaritan Run.
She worked for MKS Industries Inc. for 25 years and volunteered many years at Living Word Academy, Christian Health Services of Syracuse, and at Living Word Church camp as a life guard. Her family has always been her first priority and she wants to be a good role model of strong spiritual and physical fitness.
Favorite past time: Riding bikes (road and mountain) , playing at the gym, reading, and fishing
