In 2015, Shyla broke her elbow and was looking for a training facility in town that would not only help her get movement & function back, but also help her get in shape. Over the last 2 years, working out at Performance EDU has ignited a passion in Shyla for health & fitness and you can find her at the facility on the daily; sharing our message through the EDU social media channels, website, and working on other marketing initiatives and events! Currently, Shyla is pursuing her personal training certification, and in her spare time enjoys the outdoors (particularly riding horses), working out, cooking, and reading.
