My training experience
Corina began a career in the health sciences in 2006 working as an ACE certified personal trainer with a passion in post-rehab exercise, injury prevention training, and corrective exercise. Her passions motivated her to seek specialization as an ACE Orthopedic Exercise Specialist, Senior Fitness Specialist, and NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist. In 2009, she graduated from the Swedish Institute of Massage Therapy and has been integrating aspects of therapeutic massage into her sessions. Her goal for every client is to reduce chronic pain/tension and train for optimum function by addressing faulty movement patterns and muscle imbalances. She integrates various modalities to create a unique session including neuromuscular therapy, PNF stretching techniques, HIIT, pilates, core strength, and breath work. She believes empathy, trust, and continuing education are paramount and looks forward to each client interaction.

I've been working out with Corina for nearly three years. When we first met, I had persistent trouble with my lower back and hip flexors. My ankles were weak, and my shoulder blades were terribly tight. Corina had all the answers for my problems. She is extremely well versed on all matters of the body. In a short period of time, I was able to work with light weights. Together we worked to strengthen my core and maintain better posture. I consider myself very lucky to have her as my trainer.
Corina has worked with both my parents for almost 2 months now and she has been really helpful in getting them to commit to doing exercises and doing them the right way. Before, my Mom, who has chronic low back pain, went to an outpatient PT once a week and would do the exercises at home but sometimes incorrectly and she would incur more pain after doing them. After having Corina work with my Mom and now my Dad, they both do the exercises frequently during the week and correctly and are actually taking interest in doing them. They have noted that it has helped them get back into getting in shape as they both have never really been ones to go to the gym. Especially with this COVID pandemic, my parents don't leave the house, so she has been helpful in coming once a week to do sessions with them and then also make videos for them to follow. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress both my parents will make and hope Corina can continue to work with them as long as she is able to.
