Personal Trainer Overview
My training style emphasizes proper movement form and efficient technique accompanied by constructive, immediate feedback. A comprehensive fitness assessment to include health history, medications taken, aerobic capacity, posture, and strength is gathered in order to generate the most appropriate training program based on training goals. Periodic reassessment of your health and fitness progress will be obtained to ensure training progress is achieved.
My objective as a personal trainer is to help better your health by reducing the onset of chronic illness and enhance your general well-being and daily functional abilities throughout your life. Emphasis will be on multi-joint movements that mimic the activities of daily living such as learning how to squat properly when bending down to pick up something or how to press overhead in order to put something on a high shelf. Services include senior fitness training, flexibility training, strength training, weight loss, toning, cardio, muscle mass training, core training, bodybuilding, balance training, rehab, yoga, sports massage, and nutritional counseling. Whether your desire is to be able to dance, golf or play with the grandchildren, it is my goal to share a long-term commitment toward enhancing your regular physical activity and quality of life and to make you feel good about yourself.
