About Holly

Hi, I’m Holly! I’m a certified personal trainer, yoga teacher, and mobility specialist who believes that quality movement leads to better quality of life. My interest in wellness began with a work-study job at Lehigh University’s Fitness Center. Beyond experiencing its positive impact on my own health and wellbeing, I realized how much I enjoyed sharing that passion with others.

 

Following graduation, I earned my CPT and pursued personal training alongside a corporate finance career until taking on wellness full-time in 2018, launching my own personal training and yoga instruction business. Along the way, I expanded my education to reflect an increased focus on mobility and alignment by becoming a yoga teacher and FRC mobility specialist.

 

Today, I combine my expertise in building not only strength but also healthy movement patterns to guide my clients toward safely accomplishing their goals. I typically work with clients in their homes, virtually, and outdoors but also have gym and studio spaces available.

 

Whether you’re seeking a physical transformation (increasing strength, losing weight, improving posture, balance, etc.) or an emotional one (building confidence, changing habits, reducing stress and anxiety) I’m committed to working with you to achieve lasting change.

Holly is a true professional. She makes it a point to understand your goals and designs highly effective personalized workouts, always building on your previous milestones so that you can see and feel your progress. She's highly educated in all areas of physical fitness and I've learned more from her about joint alignment, posture and how to properly engage different muscle groups to ensure you get the most from each exercise without injury than I have from any other trainer I've worked with. She's also cool and fun, the hour goes by very fast! I highly recommend her, she is excellent.

Holly is amazing! I cannot imagine working out with anyone else. She's extremely knowledgeable, always explaining what muscles I'm using and why my form is important. She's patient and encouraging so I never feel bad when I struggle. She's also sneaky in the best way possible because I never used to exercise, but before I knew it, she had me working out five times a week! I notice the differences on a daily basis, unable to believe how far I've come. I am so grateful for her and the smile she always has on her face - she's the best and I will be a lifelong client.

Holly truly customized our workouts to fit my needs and took me out of the bubble I thought I had to fit into in order to have a “ good workout “! Holly is truly teaching me to have a better relationship with health and I could be any happier to have her guidance! Align wellness is the best kept secret!

Karina L.

Holly is an extremely motivating and passionate trainer. You can tell she practices what she preaches - she’s a great role model! She’s always on time and prepared with a personalized workout plan, which makes her stand out from many trainers I’ve worked with in the past. Her focus on proper form, flexibility/lengthening the muscles, and employing the perfect mix of the exercises for optimal results are only some of the many reasons that she’s a great trainer! After only a few weeks of training with Holly, I felt so much stronger, confident, and leaner! I always look forward to our sessions because I know she will have a new challenge awaiting me. If you like to be constantly challenged then you’ll love working with her!

From start to finish, our yoga experience with Holly was outstanding. Aside from being in touch via the app, Holly reached out by phone ahead of time to make sure that she understood our purpose and customized the class based on the needs of our group that included a wide range of ages and fitness levels. With her guidance and expertise, she held the attention and interest of our group, giving all a sense of accomplishment and calm by the class end. I highly recommend Holly for her personal touch, prowess, and preparedness.

I started working with Holly after double bunion surgery on both feet. I’d been active before - mostly yoga - but the surgery and recuperation affected my strength and balance pretty significantly. Training with Holly has made me stronger than I have ever been, which is crazy for a woman my age! She’ll make you work hard, but oh is it worth it. She is amazing!

Lizzie E.

Holly is an incredible trainer! Working with her for the past nine months on a regular basis has improved my overall health and wellbeing. She has been able to help me work through injuries and improve mobility. Bonus: Integrates her extensive knowledge of yoga into my training.

Holly has truly changed my life with an holistic fundamental and yoga-based personalized program that is EXACTLY what I wanted.

Roy R.

Holly is an exceptionally knowledgeable and highly skilled trainer. She meets you where you are and brings you to where you want to be. Training with Holly has been a transformative experience and working with her is an absolute joy and privilege. She is so passionate about what she does and that passion is contagious!

Marissa F.

Working with Holly has been a pleasure! She is extremely knowledgeable, and takes the time to understand your needs and then applies them to the training. I have seen improvements in just a few weeks. She has great energy and makes what can at times feel challenging an enjoyable experience! Highly recommend!

Holly is amazing. Admittedly I was reluctant to hire a personal trainer. I'd not exercised in years, had just moved into a new apartment complex with a gym, and I thought all I needed was a little push to get me through the door and show me around the equipment to get me started. What I came away with under Holly's highly-personalized and attentive coaching was a new appreciation and respect for my body, for what is possible, and the confidence and competence to overcome the "little things" that stand in my way. What she brings along with her deep professional knowledge and expertise is an intuitive ability to work with anybody at any level - she is an exceptional listener and observer of what others need. She asks all the right questions to elicit the information she needs to make nuanced changes that will make exercises more productive and more motivating. It's almost like she's a mind reader, able to know what I'm experiencing and then tailor what she does to what I need. She's also flexible (literally or course, but figuratively too!) - she comes with a well-thought out plan, but will make changes in the moment based on my responses, and what will motivate. It's hard to capture all that I've gained from working with Holly. She's given me a recipe for success, a better understanding of how to exercise in a safe and confident way, and she's instilled in me what I thought was impossible - the joy of exercise! On top of all that, she's fun, funny, positive and just the person you want beside you on a work out!

I first hired Holly to do a virtual yoga class for my clients over the pandemic. I was impressed by Holly's teaching and how much I enjoyed the class that I ended up hiring her as a personal trainer to work with me 1:1. Holly's approach is tailored to help you hit your goals, while also increasing your mobility which I really appreciated as some one that was looking to work on flexibility and strength. Not only have I been so happy with my results, I genuinely enjoy the hour I get with Holly every week. Her sunny disposition and positivity kept me motivated and focused. She even will check in on me in between appointments sharing exercises and routines I could be doing + healthy food recommendations to keep me nourished. Holly is truly the best. Could not recommend her enough!!

Kaitlin D.

I cannot say enough good things about working with Holly on my fitness and mobility goals. I have trained with a handful of personal trainers over the years and have never experienced anyone more thorough and attentive as Holly. She truly cares about her clients and takes time to ensure you feel comfortable at every stage so that you can best achieve your goals. Holly's knowledge of fitness, mobility training and yoga is extensive making her an expert in her field. I highly recommend!

Holly led a yoga class at my bachelorette for about 12 girls. Everyone loved it and it was such a wonderful addition to the weekend. She somehow was able to tailor a class to all levels, while also making it effective and challenging for more experienced yogis. I have also practiced under Holly’s guidance on many other occasions and can’t recommend her enough for personal training or events!

Grace H.

Working with Holly has been an incredible experience! I had practiced yoga for a few years, but always had questions about my alignment and form, and lacked confidence overall. Working 1:1 with Holly has been transformative. She helped me refine my practice, and I made more progress with her in just a few short months than I had in many years taking classes prior. Holly is so knowledgeable about not just yoga, but also incorporates mobility training into our sessions. I walk away from each session feeling strong, energized, and confident. She's also just a blast to spend an hour with each week, making it easy to stay motivated. I can't recommend her enough!

Jackie H.

An easy five stars. I have a history with hamstring + knee injuries. Holly worked with me on a weekly basis developing a great combination of strength and mobility exercises to integrate with my existing yoga regimen. Using resistance bands, TRX, and FRC mobility training, we really got to the root of my movement issues and I can happily say I feel stronger, painless, and more mobile. Aside from being very punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and communicative, Holly is a joy to work with and I would recommend to all. My dog loves her, too :)

Steve W.

Holly has been fantastic to work with. She really takes the time to listen to your goals and help you achieve them. She's very responsive when you have questions and clear in her explanations of what muscles the exercises are targeting. I highly recommend her as a trainer who will help you achieve your aesthetic goals while still helping you build healthy movement habits.

Hilary G.

I can’t say enough good things about working with Holly! In addition to her sunny and upbeat personality, she has a real knowledge of the body and how to increase mobility and strength. I have had pain and various mobility issues for the past two years, resulting from 2 abdominal surgeries. Holly has been able to help me build strength and gain mobility. Everything no longer hurts! She understands how connected everything in the body is and always finds ways to address all my “issues.” My training sessions with her are highly personalized and I am grateful for her knowledge, positive attitude, and support. She has helped me immensely.

Holly is absolutely amazing! I couldn’t say better things about her. Her work ethic, commitment to finding the right workout to push you to your personal goals while adapting to any injuries or needs is extremely helpful! Holly is very motivating, personable and makes the workout challenging but also enjoyable so the time flies by!

Casey S.

Working out with Holly’s detailed instruction, thoughtful attention to my areas of weakness, and focus on total-body strengthening has had a major impact on both my physical and mental well being. I have noticed increased joint mobility, better posture, overall strength, and I am motivated to work harder with every session. I look forward to getting my butt kicked, safely! She has the most calming and positive presence, and I can’t recommended a better trainer or yoga instructor.

Erin K.

HOLLY IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her as a person and as a trainer. I used to never work out and had never trained with a professional before. From the very beginning, Holly was professional, patient, and kind in showing me all the fundamentals. She has honestly changed my entire outlook on physical health and the importance of mind and body connection and balance. Hiring Holly would be an excellent choice.
