Training Philosophies

Using the recommendations of the American College of Sports Medicine, I offer clients a comprehensive approach to training which incorporates flexibility, balance, strength and cardiac-respiratory fitness. I pull from my education, certifications, continuing education classes, and 4 years experience of training a variety of clients to:

(1) Establish clear GOALS.

(2) Develop WORKOUT PLANS that include training methods which are challenging, appropriate for my clients and effective at helping them reaching their goals.

(3) MOTIVATE my clients to reach their goals.

(4) Hold my clients ACCOUNTABLE to show up to the gym and follow their plan to reach their goals.
