I became a personal trainer 10 years ago after competing in track and field for Temple University. I learned so much about functional training and the importance of the right diet while at Temple, which I attribute to my massive improvement and success in claiming the collegiate record in the 1000 meters. I saw personal training as an opportunity to use the knowledge I gained to help better educate people about proper exercise and nutrition.
My approach is unique in that I look to improve the functions of the body on many levels with each of my clients. We work not only on strength and/or weight loss, but also on agility, power, speed, flexibility, coordination and endurance through varies means. I approach each session a bit differently so that the body is constantly being challenged dynamically, which not only keeps the workouts interesting, but also ensures that the body never plateaus. My workouts incorporate various elements of pilates, kettle bells, TRX, free weights, body weight exercises, and ballistics to name a few.
I have a very solid reputation with my clients. Most of them have been training with me for years because we are constantly heightening their abilities and we have developed a relationship and understanding of each other. We are constantly setting new short and long-term goals that are realistically attainable so that we are always working towards something! It's important to have a vision, a goal in mind to keep yourself focused and on track and most importantly to work towards creating a lifestyle change. I am not about the "quick fix" mentality promising dramatic changes overnight. I am concerned with nourishing the mind and body to be one cohesive unit so that we can develop healthy habits that are going to promote life-long healthy changes.

My first session with Noelle was great. She was very attentive to my needs, weaknesses, and took note of the things I really wanted to work on. She's flexible with the scheduling, provided options for gyms to train at since she isn't affiliated with a particular gym, and just overall very nice and easy to communicate with. I am looking forward to having more sessions with her.
Such an amazing attitude and inspiring presence! Excited to work with Noelle!
I have been working out with, and supported by, Noelle for over 2 years. She has not only made me stronger, but also reshaped my body to a place where I feel more comfortable and confident in myself. Noelle’s positive energy and creative (ever changing!) workouts keep me motivated and engaged - even on the days I’d rather skip the gym!
I’ve been training with Noelle for almost 2 years now. When we first met, I was terrified of having a stalky body shape from working out. Noelle knew exactly what to do so that wouldn’t be the case and helped me achieve a lean toned body. Things that I thought were impossible, were happening to my body. She is a dedicated, knowledgeable, and passionate person to guide you in the right direction for your personal growth and health goals. Every time we meet, the workouts change and they’re always fun yet challenging. I always feel like my muscles are being introduced to something new. Since I’ve been pregnant, she’s personalized my workouts once again to match my needs and also has provided a lot of guidance about the changes in my body right now. Moms-to-be worry about everything and Noelle has made me feel so comfortable and confident. I can’t stress enough what a positive change I’ve undergone mentally and physically thanks to Noelle.
I came to Noelle hoping to get in better shape; thanks to Noelle’s training I am physically stronger than I have ever been. Noelle helps you break through psychological barriers to find an inner strength you didn’t necessarily know you have.
I started training with Noelle a couple of years ago because I was an out of shape running fanatic and I knew she excelled at track at Temple University. She and Kern push me in ways that I would never have expected especially in terms of core (so necessary) and upper body strength. Always challenging and definitely a well spent hour.
Noelle is the type of trainer who can motivate you throughout every workout. Each workout she gave me was always different and challenging. As a client of Noelle, it always felt good to know I was working with a trainer who is passionate and positive with helping me to get my results.
I’ve been training with Noelle for almost 2 years now, and she is by far one of the best trainers in the business. Our sessions are constantly changing, incorporating a mix of calisthenics, free weights, machines, and cardio, all of which keeps my body guessing and looking its best. More than outward physical appearance, she is a great motivator for a balanced lifestyle and nutritional wellness. I leave each session exhausted but looking forward to the next.
I was diagnosed several years ago with fibromyalgia and suffered from chronic pain in my legs, upper back and neck. Since training with Noelle, I have lost 18 pounds and for the first time in years I’m now injury and pain free, which I never thought would be possible. I feel stronger and healthier than ever before. It feels fantastic having my friends take notice to the positive changes and to finally achieve the results I’ve wanted after 7 years of failing at various diets and exercise regimens. I know that with Noelle’s coaching I will be able to attain all of my fitness goals!
Noelle is the best. My situation is complex and Noelle has taken the time to understand and customize my workout. She is very talented and has a wide range of options to help with general cardio and strength conditioning. I see improvements already!!
