Hi! I’m Shannon and I’m the founder of Savage Wellness:

I am a personal trainer, a weight management specialist, a retired circus acrobat, and mom of two young and energetic boys

I have been using my body my whole life. I grew up as a high level gymnast and competed for the US National Vaulting Team in my teens. In my 20s, after sitting at a computer through college and as I began working as a photographer, I started experiencing horrible back pains. I needed to get fit but I didn't know where to start so I went with what I knew. Having recently seen Cirque Du Soleil for the first time, I joined some adult gymnastics classes to challenge myself not to just get fit, but have fun doing it. This ultimately lead to a late career in the circus (Yes, you do not have to be born into a family of clowns and raised in a handstand to be in the circus). I moved to Montreal and trained and worked as a internationally acclaimed circus artist for years (yes, it was as awesome as it sounds). After a slew of injuries and a soul full of incredible memories and experiences, I decided to retire, settle down with my high school sweetheart and start a family. I became a personal trainer to help show people that you can do anything at any age. You can feel better at 40 (50, 60, 70, even!) than you ever did at 20! I  want to tell the world: Follow your passions, find things you love and that motivate you, and you can do amazing things. I can help you discover a new and healthier you! Join me to make a change and ENJOY the process!
