About Val

I am a certified personal trainer, prior gym owner and program designer with 34 years experience in the fitness industry. I have a strong background in HIIT, Functional Training and Core Training, as well as corrective exercise. I am passionate about delivering state of the art training to my clients based on their needs and goals. I feel it is my job to ensure a safe, effective and suitable workout designed to challenge, motivate, encourage and bring out the best in each client. I am a stickler for form and technique and designing well balanced workouts that deliver. I am consistently attending workshops and summits to keep myself educated and on the cutting edge of fitness. I would be honored to help you reach your goals and improve the quality of your life through fitness.

My favorite quote

Mental Toughness

My training philosophy

Get strong from the inside out....strong mind, strong body. A proper foundation must be established to training safely and get the results one seeks, injury free. I meet each individual client where they are and challenge them based on their abilities. Exercise is not one size fits all and I am very well versed in making training challenging yet safe, fun and effective.

I'm so glad I connected with Val. My husband and I have been working out with her for the last 12 weeks. We have seen amazing changes in our strength, body shape and energy levels. Val is great at customizing a workout based on your individual needs and building up your confidence. I highly recommend Val if you are serious about your fitness goals.
