Personal Trainer Overview

I am an ACE-Certified Personal Trainer with additional certifications in Orthopedic Exercise and Weight Management. I train clients at a private personal training studio in Irvine, California. I train clients of all ages and genders, but most of my clients are women in their 40s-70s. My approach to personal training is client-centric, meaning that each workout is specifically tailored to each client's individual needs. These needs are determined through discussions with clients about their goals, exercise history, injury history and lifestyle factors (such as how much time they have available to exercise), as well as through written and physical assessments. My training strategy varies from client to client, but some examples of training include: resistance training; cardiovascular training; core stability exercises; balance and agility training; postural exercises; low impact workouts; and HIIT training.

Training Philosophy

I strive to make exercise a positive experience that builds a client's confidence in their physical abilities. In order to maximize adherence to a fitness program, I help clients set realistic goals that are achievable through regular exercise while maintaining time for other important aspects of life. Safety is paramount and at the forefront of every training decision I make in designing my clients' programming.


I hold Personal Training Certification and Weight Management Specialty Certification through the American Council of Exercise (ACE). I'm CPR/AED certified. I hold a Bachelor Degree from the University of Victoria in Canada. I'm a BCRPA- and CFES-Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor and have completed additional training in prenatal and postnatal exercise.


Prior to working as a Personal Trainer, I was a real estate marketing executive, so I understand challenges facing busy professionals in sedentary (desk) professions. At the age of 40 I embarked on a new career path because my true passion in life is helping people achieve better health and fitness. I hope to serve as an example of how it is possible to create new habits and the life you want, at any age.
