Samantha Garvin

Healthy Living Director & Personal Trainer
Briargate YMCA

Degrees and Certifications:

  • MS degree in Health Promotion from University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. BS degree in Sports and Exercise Science from University of Northern Colorado.
  • Certifications: ACSM CEP (Clinical Exercise Physiologist). NCHEC CHES (Certified Health Education Specialist). AFAA Primary Group Ex. American Safety & Health Institute CPR/AED, First Aid and Oxygen certified.

Areas I specialize In:

  • Specialties: Cardio health, interval training, and flexibility. I specialize in working with the person that is new to exercise, or maybe somewhat intimidated by being in a fitness center.

My Training Philosophy:

  • Make exercise fun for the client, because that is what will keep them on the right track to living a healthy lifestyle! Don’t just tell the client what to do, instruct why they are doing it with the goal that they will walk away from that session with a little bit more knowledge.

Interests and Achievements:

  • My interests include spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy participating in local 5K races, trying the latest trends in group exercise, and going to outdoor concerts!
