Teal is an accredited StrongFirst instructor with both kettlebell certifications. Teal has not always maintained a healthy lifestyle. In high school she was well-rounded in athletics and played volleyball, basketball, golf, and racquetball until doctors discovered a rare abnormality in both her ankles. Twelve surgeries later and in her early twenties, she had gained 80lbs and was told by doctors to only exercise in the pool…until she was introduced to kettlebells. She learned the endurance and strength training that came with just a simple kettlebell swing, and movements that would actually end up relieving some of her chronic pain and helping her lose much of her excess weight. Teal uses low impact ideology with her students. She believes strength training can be used to help chronic pain as well as to aid and prevent injuries. Most importantly, Teal is mother to a rambunctious daughter, she is a fiancé, and is a Portland, Oregon native.
