About Whitney

Hi, I’m Whitney, the owner of GirlPower Fitness. 

I founded GirlPower in 2015 because I care a lot about empowering women. I believe that when women are okay — because they are taking care of themselves, feeling loved, and recognizing their own worth — that ultimately, society will be okay. I think it starts and ends with women. 

Fitness is not the magic key to unlocking happiness in your life. But investing in the improvement of your health puts you in a better mindset and helps you make other healthy changes in your life.

What to expect when working with me:

--Tailored online personal training workouts. *These are NOT live zoom workouts. You do them on your own time and I check-in multiple times per week to keep you motivated and accountable.*

--Initial consultation call to get to know you and gather information to create the perfect plan.

--Health and fitness goal setting and accountability from a trainer who gets it and cares.

--Unlimited text messaging with me to answer any questions.

--Easy-to-use and robust mobile app where you can access all of your workouts, track progress, and more. The app even syncs with your Apple Watch or Fitbit to track progress!

--You’re working out on your own but I’m with you every step of the way!

So, please, reach out! I’d love to hear from you and find out more about your journey.



My favorite client story

Anytime a client has an "a-ha" moment when they realize they're stronger than they knew is so uplifting for me. I like helping clients discover strength they didn't know they had!

My favorite exercise

I really like a full Turkish Get-Up but I rarely include it in sessions with clients because it's so complex.

My favorite quote

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.

My training philosophy

Connect with people from the heart and show them they care. That's the best motivator.

My training experience

I've been in the fitness industry since 1994. I taught group fitness from 1994-2015. In 2015, I also began doing personal training.

Whitney has been my trainer for over a year now. I have been going 5 mornings a week. I can't imagine starting my day any other way. She is so smart and intuitive. She listens to your goals and helps you work steadily towards achieving them. She changes up routines everyday so I am never bored. When I started, I was not into working out, but I was active because of my hectic and stressful schedule. Hiring her was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I look forward to my work outs, and the benefits I am experiencing are beyond my expectations. I am strong. I am fit. I am healthy. I feel much less stressed. I have more energy. I am a happier person all around. She is an absolutely amazing trainer!

I cannot say enough good things about GirlPower Fitness. Whitney is an AWESOME trainer and makes every single workout unique and fun. She pushes you in a way that you don't even know it's happening. I recommend this trainer without a doubt. You will not regret joining GirlPower Fitness.

Whitney is my current trainer and wow, she's amazing! I couldn't recommend her enough. Not only do clients get to work out in the privacy of her home gym, but her equipment is clean and always prepared, she always has a custom workout planned, and her rates are extremely reasonable! She is flexible with scheduling, easy to communicate with but still pushes clients accordingly, and just a great person to work with. She goes above and beyond - she's not just a trainer, but also a great resource for healthy food information, cooking, and more. Highly recommend!!!

I have worked out with many trainers throughout my lifetime and Whitney is by far one of the best. She has a customized plan that takes into account your strengths and weaknesses. The plan is different every time so the workout is never dull or repetitive. Whitney is extremely encouraging and makes you feel like you can doing anything. Highly recommend Whitney with Girl Power Fitness.

Having Girl Power Fitness in the neighbor hood is only the icing on the cake! Whitney is hands down top of the top, in personal training! She has the most beautiful, in home studio, all the equipment she uses is new, innovative and fun, fun, fun! I Love how every week she keeps it new and different, not the same rut over and over like other trainers. The best is her weekly newsletters with recipes and tips for a healthy lifestyle, She is way over compensating with my schedule and I always appreciate it that she knows life happens! Thank you Whit for our weekly session, It truly gets my days off to a positive start!

I am a 73 year old grandmother, and I cannot say enough good things about Whitney and GirlPower Fitness! I had back surgery 4 years ago and was cautioned over and over about not bending, twisting or lifting while recovering. I was so careful for so many months that even after I was fully healed I continued to be very cautious in my movements..I realized recently that I had become too sedentary and was feeling stiff and unbalanced. I was fearful that if I didn't start moving my body the day might come when I wouldn't be able to without the use of a cane or walker - I certainly didn't want that to ever become my reality! I wanted to work with Whitney because my daughter was so pleased with her workouts and progress. Whitney made a very customized plan for me. Each session was different and never boring! I feel so much stronger and much less wobbly! Whitney has given me a plan so that I can continue working on my balance and strengthening my core at home.I would recommend Whitney and GirlPower to anyone of any age! She has such a wonderful personality and is so encouraging. She is an expert in her field and has a beautiful, well-equiped studio in her home. I feel so much stronger and more confident now! Thank You, Whitney!

Whitney is awesome, very supportive and encouraging. I could not believe how quickly our session went by, Great work out, I felt so much better. Her home studio makes you feel comfortable and she also provides great nutritional information and helpful tips.
