Personal Trainer Overview

I am an ACE-Certified Personal Trainer with a specialty in Weight Management. I train clients at The Fitness Connection, a private personal training studio in Irvine, California. My approach to personal training is client-centric, meaning that each workout is specifically tailored to a client's individual needs. Expanding on general fitness, areas in which I help clients include resistance training, cardiovascular training, weight management, core stability exercises, lean muscle gain, strength training for postural improvements, low impact workouts, and HIIT training. I am also a BCRPA- and CFES-Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor (Canada).

Training Philosophy

It is important to me that every client knows they are welcomed and respected, regardless of their fitness background. 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.


I hold Personal Training Certification and Weight Management Specialty Certification through the American Council of Exercise (ACE). I'm CPR/AED certified. I also hold a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts and I'm a BCRPA- and CFES-Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor (Canada).


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.
