About JoAnn


I specialize in Women's Weight Loss, Pre/Post Rehabilitation, Corrective Exercise, Pre/Post natal Care, Strength Training, and Nutrition Counseling. I am also a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant which is where I stand out from the rest. I am skilled in corrective exercise and injury recovery. My training techniques incorporate both strength and cardio based exercises for maximum results. Each session is fun and fresh, never duplicated! I will start you with the fundamentals of basic exercises, to get you prepared for bigger movements. I don't believe wroking you until you can't move the next day, but rather gradually progress your exercises, yet still make you sweat! I feel that communication with me is crucial, whether if you're feeling tired, pain, nauseous, etc.

If looking for an in-home trainer, don't stress if you don't have the equipment. I am fully equipped to bring the gym to you! I can to provide TRX, boxing, dummbells/kettlebells, yoga mat, BOSU, medicine/slam balls, and battle ropes! I am also knowledgeable in Yoga and flexibilty to incorporate into workouts. Looking to workout outdoors? No problem! We can find a park, track, or backyard to swtich things up during days of nicer weather.

A great personal trainer must have the ability to analyze each client's individual situation and harmonize their training to match their lifestyle and goals. Each session must be unique and challenging in order for a client to achieve their ultimate fitness goal. I believe by using a series of endurance, strengthening, and flexibility techniques modified to each client's ability, it will help achieve maximum benefits. Let me help you achieve your goals on your fitness journey!

JoAnn loves to keep her sessions fun yet can really kick your butt! After having two kids, she helped me lose the weight to even less than I had before having kids! I've never felt so confident and loving my new body!


Joann has been training me for the last two years, starting shortly after the birth of my second child.  At that time, I had never felt more weak and out of shape in my life.  Knowing that I would never get to a gym with two small children, her in-home training option was perfect.  The workouts were very challenging for me, and still are!  But what has changed is how I look and feel.  I am back to my pre-baby weight, but am not done.  We continue to set goals so that I can get more and more toned.  I have never been in such great cardio shape and have a ton of energy.  Joann has a "no excuses" mentality that motivates.  She also walks the walk...you can tell from looking at her that she eats right and trains hard herself.  She has no shortage of food tips and tricks, and her workouts are always fresh.  She has definitely had a positive impact in my life and I still look forward to each workout.  Thanks, Joann!!


I have been working out with JoAnn for a year and I can see the change in myself with improved strength and toning. Workout sessions with her are challenging that she changes the exercises frequently to break the routine. JoAnn is a good motivator and very comfortable to work with. I look forward to continue working out with her!
