Health knowledge made personal
I've been a personal trainer for over 14 years. A decade ago, I began working with clients in their homes. For the past four years, I've made this the focus of my personal training business. There have been numerous obstacles along the way, but I can honestly say that I was always meant to be a fitness professional. I had a few departures from this path. For a few years I believed I was meant to become a doctor. For another year or two, I believed Physical Therapy was my future. I couldn't have been further from the truth. Every time I strayed from my true passion, personal training, I lost that spark. I became more of a "human doing" versus a human being. I must extend a big apology to the medical profession, for my heart has always stayed true to the fitness industry. ;D
I simply love helping people discover that being healthy isn't as difficult as they once thought. I have also always loved the human body and its amazing systems. It's quite simply the most amazing machine known to man. The human body is meant to move. Being able to promote (and at times, even restore) health in those I train is extremely rewarding for me. To me, personal training isn't a "job," it's my life. I was once said to me "if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life." This is completely true for me. I love what I do!
Furthermore, I have come to love working with clients in their homes and outdoors. I don't subscribe to one style of training, as I feel no method by itself can be considered comprehensive. I prefer to fuse the methods I feel are most effective into workouts appropriate for each and every one of my clients, based on their goals, fitness level, surroundings, and unique style of learning. The foundation for each of my clients' programs is bodyweight training. Once a client has demonstrated the proper levels of stabilization, body control, and overall strength, I kick things up a notch by adding tools such as kettlebells, resistance bands, and medicine balls to their workouts.
My clients want to feel and look their best, so they can get the most out of life each and every day. Fitness is a journey, not a destination - train for LIFE! Are you ready?
