I am a fitness and gym junkie, with a small ice cream problem. I am here to help others, and hope to one day help you reach your fitness goals and potential, which in turn can help lead to your overall happiness and quality of life. Everyone has it in them to succeed and I am here to help you learn how.
Who says you can’t plank in heels?
Beyond fitness, I am a mom and a wife. My family is my world! They drive my motivation for everything in life. I want to live an active and healthy lifestyle to help instill those values in my son.
My love for health and fitness started before I can remember. I was always active, running around playing as a kid. I grew up doing gymnastics, playing softball, running cross-country and track, and was on the rowing team at the University of Rhode Island for one year. Currently, I enjoy playing tennis and my true passion is running. I also love a good butt kicking workout at the gym, which always includes strength training.

How can I be Toppa Tough?
This should not sound intimidating, and the best part is… everyone is, or has the potential to be “Toppa Tough.” Toppa Tough is a motto that was instilled in me at a very young age, and has helped me through many obstacles in my life. I hope to be able to instill the motto in others, to help them realize the potential they have within themselves, and that with a little determination and motivation they can achieve anything.
My father, Terry Toppa, the man behind the motto, has lived his life by it. He gives his all, never backs down, and never gives up… no matter what. “Toppa Tough” has taken him a long way through many different aspects of his life, including sports, careers, and family. It has helped him persevere through life. Hopefully it will help to do the same for you!
