I offer personalized one on one sessions and group training. For those clients who prefer to workout on their own but need a little direction on how to meet their goal, I create custom workout programs.
Here's what you can expect when working with me:
Along with being able to communicate tons of great fitness knowledge, having a friendly and positive personality is a must to be a great trainer. Whether you want to know the specifics of your program or just be told how to accomplish your goals, both require communication in a personal way. For some, sensitive issues come into play, so high respect and confidentiality is a must. I believe exercising creates a natural balance for your life. My goal is to bring a level of understanding, enthusiasm, and accountability at whatever level you are at.
Managing weight is an essential aspect to exercising. Once you are at a weight that is healthy and you're happy with, you are then able to start making choices that will not dramatically affect your body. My goal will be to teach you how your body works, so you will be able to take responsibility for it and have those choices fit into your lifestyle. Because of our current obesity epidemic, weight can be tricky to balance in today's world; so remember, managing weight should always be a lifestyle.
Posture affects so many variables within our daily lives including when we exercise, which is why I strive to address it consistently during our workouts. Your body has an amazing ability to remember movements you do correctly...and incorrectly; therefore, when we train we want to counteract what your body will already do, as well as, what it needs to improve on. It is imperative that I keep this concept active as we train because the ramifications of improper movement can affect your goals and lead to further help from healthcare providers; costing you additional energy and resources long-term.
I always welcome the chance to talk about food and nutrition. I teach my clients how different foods affect the body and how many calories to intake daily. I do this by taking clients to the grocery store, going through their choices, and teaching them how to make any necessary changes along the way. Alternative nutritional changes such as fasts or fad diets are becoming more popular everyday. However, I believe making balanced food choices promotes an optimal lifestyle.
My life has been filled with sports, which has helped make me an exceptional trainer and student of the body. Due to my experiences I am able to adjust myself accordingly to my client's ability levels, high or low. I believe, and have seen many times, that if clients strive to maximize their athletic potential in areas of interest (i.e. snowboarding, biking, swimming, hiking etc.), the confidence and freedom they can obtain will change their life.
