About Valerie

My passion is helping women over 40 discover their best self! My sessions are focused on total body training with a little HIIT thrown in! I understand the changes your body is going through and I can help you push past the obstacles and achieve the goals you most want. I’ve spent the past 15 years perfecting my craft and I’m excited to share my knowledge with you.

My favorite exercise

Soooo many. Almost any compound exercise is a favorite of mine. But... if I had to pick one... It would be a squat to an overhead press... This exercise is the holy grail for total body strength and building explosive power.

My favorite quote

Discipline is choosing between what you want NOW and what you want MOST.

My training philosophy

Strength + cardio. There is no way around it. Both strength training and cardio are important in achieving the results you want. Specific programming based on your goals will determine the right mix... but, both are essential.

My training experience

I've trained clients in big box gyms and boutique fitness centers. I've coached clients in classes such as OrangeTheory Fitness, Les Mills Body Pump and CycleBar. My personal training experience includes lots of long-distance running, including qualifying for and running in the Boston Marathon and quick but effective strength training.

My daughters and I worked with Val for a year. Her attention to detail, ability to motivate, and vast knowledge of health and well being made her uniquely special to work with. Val not only taught and led us through exercises, but really worked with us to make sure we understood what we were doing and why. I am grateful for the foundation Val created and the lessons she taught me. I cannot recommend her enough!
