Holly was born and raised in Indianapolis, In. Always a bit of a tomboy, her father took her under his wing ( an athlete and division AAA baseball player himself) and introduced her to sports and being active. After many errors on the baseball/softball field, she figured out that Soccer was her sport of choice, playing throughout her whole life and into college. She graduated from Indiana University – Bloomington with a degree in Sports Management in 1998. There she worked heavily in the intramural division as well as the Student Recreation Sports Center Fitness center and HPER fitness center. Soon after graduation, Holly worked at several fitness center, including, Arthur Jordan YMCA, Ballys total fitness and Lifetime Fitness. However, just like most 20 somethings, she was bored and realized that her dream job of being a sports reporter may not happen. So, she followed her other passion – all things animals and became a Veterinary Technician in Broad Ripple and was there for ten years- up until the birth of her second child. Soon after that, she realized that her life had come full circle, and she needed to get back to where it all began – sports and fitness. She signed up for a KettleBell class at the Fishers YMCA – with her trainer – Matt Newmann – and never looked back. She then became a level cf1 coach in January 2014 and couldn’t be happier. She currently lives in Fishers, with her husband, Ryan and her two kids- Will(7) and Caroline(2) and their two labs, Aggie and Blue.
