Personal Training

Exercise programs are written just for you!

Each program is based on your fitness and health assessment, along with your goals and abilities.  Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, or just need motivation and coaching, I can develop a program to help you meet your goals.

Programs may include: resistance exercises (dumbells, bands, medicine balls, kettle bells, body-weight, bars, sliders, and more.) 


HIIT

HIIT is High Intensity Interval Training.

HIIT is for those that want an intense exercise regimen in a short amount of time. HIIT programs are generally 30 minutes long, but are intense from beginning to end. Research has shown that HIIT is an excellent way to burn fat and get the heart pumping for a full throttle cardio workout.


Senior Fitness and Parksinson's Disease Fitness

Senior Fitness and Parkinson's Disease Fitness are two areas that are near and dear to my heart. 

My father has had Parkinson's Disease for over 25 years, and can attest that a life-time of exercise has helped him to slow the progression of the disease. Resistance and weight-bearing exercises help to maintain muscle, while balance and flexibility exercises help to avoid falling. Exercise also helps the body to produce those "good-feeling" chemicals that are so important in those with Parkinson's. 

Exercise programs are based on abilities, and generally 30 minutes long. 

A Client’s Health Journey

 Joe came to me a few months ago looking to drop some weight and build muscle. In just a short time, he started to develop muscle and learn proper weight-training techniques, so he could work out at home, and while on the road for his busy job. He is still on his health journey, but as you can see, he has made great gains!

Exercise, the stress-reducer

Several years ago, I realized that exercise is a "must-do" for me to help eliminate stress. We all have stress, but too much is just too much! When I feel like I am stressed, overwhelmed, or have too much on my plate, and it is affecting my mental health and sense of peace, I soon realize that, hey, I haven't exercised in a couple days! For me, exercise is stress-reducer. After exercising, I feel like the stress has truly melted away. It is an amazing feeling. Do you have stress? I'd love to help you reduce it.
