Hey friend! I’m Clare! Here are some fun things about me …
I love people. I have as long as I can remember. I’ll sit and drill a million questions to you in a mere 5 minutes and chances are you’ll tell me everything I want to know. I’m fascinated as to what makes people tick. What makes them happy. What makes them sad. What keeps them moving and what stops them.
I love to move. I’ve been told I have a ton of energy. (understatement?) There’s no question that God has wired me to be a fitness instructor! (I’m been certified in General Aerobics and Pilates since 2004) Who else can move a hundred miles a minute with their body while keeping their mouth going just as fast? I love it. It gives me more energy than anyone will ever know.
I love my friends. I’m blessed with an incredible support group. The beauty of them is that their lives don’t necessarily look like mine. We share different visions, different faiths, different desires. I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
I love my family. I married my handy, funny, Godly & extremely tall man, Kory in 2003. His integrity blows me away. We have 2 children Sam (2006) and Lila (2009). To say that they are blessings is a bit of an understatement. I thought that my marriage refined me, but being a mother took that refinement to a whole new level. I quit my job in corporate America to make my house a home. To invest all my focus and energy into these little humans and into my marriage and ministries.
I love Jesus. My extra pep in my step is because of a life of freedom that I live. My chains are gone. I’ve been set free. It’s not just cliché…it’s the truth. I’m as real as real can be.
This space is a reflection of my life. It’s been a journey just as anything else meaningful, hard, glorious, & faith-building has been. It has changed me and challenged me all at the same time. I am blessed to share my heart with people who come from around the world seeking the very same community I look for.

HOW I WENT FROM A FITNESS MOM BLOGGER TO A SPEAKER, COACH AND MOTIVATOR
In 2011, I stepped into a chapter of life that had no title nor outline. I (begrudgingly!) opened a blog called Peak313 during a time when I was up to my eyeballs in parenting, teaching fitness classes, and trying to figure out what it was like to live life honoring God. That blog started out with exercise and nutrition tips, online community challenges and faith and “real life” encouragement. God was clarifying my voice and passion as I poured out my heart online to thousands of women who I’d never met in person but who God gave me the blessing to encourage and love.
I’ve spent 10 years online here growing up right in front of everyone as I stepped into speaking, training and coaching. I realized that I came alive when I was in front of a group of people teaching, preaching and motivating. I also loved the deep 1 on 1 conversations that I got “unofficially” with someone in the hallway of church or after teaching pilates, or “officially” coaching an online client. New opportunities crossed my path which ignited a new passion within and I see with more clarity every day, that God has lead me to a fuller vision of my purpose here on earth. As I focus more intentionally in life and leadership coaching and speaking, my heart is to free up those whose lives feel tangled and confused so that they may know and serve God better. I’ll do it for anyone, at anytime, and in any place possible and so my prayer is that if you are someone who could use this encouragement, that I would be able to step in, in whatever way possible to get you to that next step of free and full living!
