I've always had a passion for fitness. I believe exercise should be "fun" and not just a daily requirement in one's life. I like to help my clients take the "guesswork" out of designing an exercise program. I always make it a priority for clients to get to their goal in a safe and effective manner. I have always been a big believer that exercise programs should be multi-dimensional and consist of flexibility training, core training, balance training, speed, agility, and reactive training, and of course strength training!!!! Not only will these very important component of exercises help an individual get to their exercise goals much quicker, but it will also make performing daily activities much easier and perhaps even more enjoyable. Overall, exercise nowadays to me is much more about movement (or functional movement), and how to get the human body to manage these movements in a safe, systematic way. Working on a machine chest press or bicep curl machine simply wont just get it done anymore. In a nutshell, exercise is about keeping the body guessing, and never keep using the same old routine. Lastly, I enjoy working with clients and developing professional working relationships, clients who are not afraid to try someting new, to commit to change, to mentally and physically be able to overcome "setbacks", and keep focused on their exercise goals.
