"James and I grew up in Walnut, Illinois. Our families, neighbors, teachers, and friends had a profound effect on us. We always knew we would settle here in Walnut so our children could have the same opportunities we had to develop character, a great work ethic, and a sense of community. Today, we live on a farm just outside of town with our four children; Tanner, Tucker, Hunter, and Callie. James farms and I teach at Bureau Valley North. Our faith, family, friends, and community remain as the cornerstone of our lives in Walnut and we are extremely proud to live here.
For a while, James and I have been interested in the possibility of opening a local fitness center. When the opportunity presented itself, we jumped on it. Both of us are excited to contribute to a revitalized downtown. It is our mission to enhance the fitness and wellness of our community."
