My Training Philosophy:

  • “A body in motion stays in motion.” I enjoy helping people of all ages and abilities reach their fitness goals. Everyone can benefit from some form of exercise. My specialty is helping you find what works for you, with empathy and encouragement. I view exercise as both a necessity and a privilege, and I am happy to share my passion for health with you. My approach to training is to explore all areas of wellness to find what motivates and interests you. Together we will tailor an exercise program specifically for you that is fun, safe and gets results.

Interests and Achievements:

  • My interests are all related to health and wellness, starting with the individual and extending to society. This starts with practicing what I preach. I love to exercise and live a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy hiking and playing with my kids, watching them play sports, musical instruments, and literally grow. Working out and listening to good music are my favorite passtimes. I am a bit of an information junkie. I am fascinated by science, from micro to macro. quarks to quasars. My children are my inspiration and I am highly motivated to set a good example for them and to show others that healthy living is a choice we all can make. Seniors also inspire me. I very much enjoy learning from elders, and I care about their well-being and quality of life. I feel honored to share in their pursuit and maintenance of health and fitness.
