Your Personal Trainers

A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction. They motivate clients by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability to clients. Trainers also measure their client’s strengths and weaknesses with fitness assessments. These fitness assessments may also be performed before and after an exercise program to measure their client’s improvements in physical fitness. They may also educate their clients in many other aspects of wellness besides exercise, including general health and nutrition guidelines. Qualified personal trainers recognize their own areas of expertise. If a trainer suspects that one of his or her clients has a medical condition that could prevent the client from safe participation in an exercise program, they must refer the client to the proper health professional for prior clearance.

I will always be a teacher at heart, but now I’ve chosen to focus my energy on teaching others how to be fit and healthy. I’m honored and blessed to work with people of all ages, shapes, and sizes gain confidence, to lose weight, get off medications, prevent cancer/promote life longevity with cancer, prepare for races/fitness competitions, train sport specific, help mothers get back to their “pre-baby” state, or just become over all more fit and healthier.

Health and fitness has always been a big part of my life growing up. Now that I have my own family it is important that I implement both health and fitness in my kids daily lives. My kids are my life and they help to push and motivate me day after day. It is important to me that I am able to teach my kids the importance of eating healthy and staying active. This mantra carries over into my training for each and every one of my clients.
