Personal Trainer Overview

My basic style of training varies from the level of individuals needs and concerns. I prefer, strengthening with bands, dumbbells and utilization of weights if training in a gym. I always incorporate cardio whether its jump roping, running or riding bikes. My clients onl need to show up with a desire to see CHANGE taking place, and THEY are the ones that will make that change. A little encouragement, motivation and a person can truly become healthier. I tell my clients, that if "you connect with your trainer," "you will get results. Therefore, getting the mind ready for change. I won't give up on my client as long as my client wont give up.

Training Philosophy

My style of training is a lot of circuit type. I believe a person will not get their desired goals unless they change the way they eat. Nutrition is more than 80% in my book. A client has to be consistent. My way of motivating my clientele, is that I "encourage them, by bringing out their best." I don't demean them. I also, use myself as an inspiration. I am turning 49 years young in December 2013. It doesn't matter what age a person starts, just start. I advise my clients, that "you are worth it." You have been given one body, make it the healthiest it can be.

I started working out as a young woman working as a Legal Secretary for a large law firm in California. I was very stressed. I also noticed, that I was getting a little thick!!! I am not very tall and I knew that I really would be stressed if I became overweight. I more importantly, saw how Corporate America treats individuals who become overweight in the job place, and its not really fair. Some people have serious health issues. As I worked out in the gym, people would often ask me questions pertaining to my workouts and I decided that I really -really like how I am feeling by working out, and if I can inspire just "one" person to not give up, but to give into "making the best change" of their life. "The healthier you are the happier your are."As I mentioned earlier, I will be turning 49 in December 2013, and I am grateful that I have and am keeping me a priority.
