Welcome! Are you looking for proper instruction, motivation and amazing results but never felt comfortable with the gym atmosphere? Have you heard about the benefits of weight training but don’t know where to begin? Seniors, are you looking to build muscle to protect your mobility? The time has come to invest in your health and well-being! I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Exercise Physiologist, with over 30 years experience and I am ready to bring my experience and expertise to your doorstep! No travel or home gym required. My virtual and in-home sessions have endless possibilities!
I will meet you where you are on your fitness journey, no matter what your challenge may be. I am committed to providing my clients with safe, effective, functional workouts that they can sustain for life! YOU are unique-lets work together to create a program that helps you accomplish YOUR fitness goals.
My education, experience and passion is strength training. Using equipment such as dumbells, kettlebells, TRX and stability equipment, as well as body weight exercises, we can build muscle, which will increase strength, raise metabolism, increase bone density and help you to acquire a leaner, more youthful body.
Muscle mass is the greatest indicator of healthy aging!
You don’t need to run everyday or do extreme, dangerous workouts to get a healthy, strong body. Exercise can be safe and effective without wearing your joints down.
Ladies, have you gained weight after menopause, and find it much more difficult to lose weight and keep it off? I’m with you! As a women’s fitness specialist I know how these changes affect us and the most effective ways to combat loss of muscle, lowered bone density and a lowered metabolism that comes with our change in hormones. Strength training is the most effective way to get there!
Seniors, I am a Certified Senior Fitness specialist through ACE.
Exercise can restore functional independence and prevent fragility in older adults. This is why I have taken time to extend my education in senior fitness. I take a conservative approach with my older adults, depending on their level of functioning, they will be working on strength training, flexibility, balance work and cardiovascular components.
I love seeing my older adults get stronger, it is my mission to help them live a more vibrant and independent life.
Are you recently injured, post-surgery or facing a different, unique or challenging circumstance? I understand, weight training allowed me to recover from a serious car accident and manage a congenital hip issue, all while instilling in me compassion and understanding for my clients that may be faced with similar challenges. I have worked with many clients that have been wheelchair bound, disorders such as MS and Parkinsons, as well as cardiovascular challenges and obesity.
