About Barbara

I have always been interested in fitness and feeling good. I decided in my mid-fifties that I had enough of the corporate world set out to become a personal trainer. I certified with ACE Fitness in 2007 and set out to find a position any local studio or gym that would hire me. I found that most businesses were interested in young, lean athletic trainers and I was turned down everywhere.

That initial rejection turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I formed my own little company, and began encouraging people who were not comfortable in a gym or studio to come work out with me at their homes, and community gyms. My clients were fighting back pain, arthritis, hypertension, diabetes, overweight and general discomfort and discouragement. Together we fought to regain strength, mobility and endurance. We motivated each other and cheered results.

I kept learning specialties and kept educating myself so I could pass new techniques, research and knowledge to share. It is my pleasure to welcome you, if you choose to train with me for general fitness, mat Pilates or yoga.
