ACE certified personal trainer

About Teresa

I am a retired Sergeant from a large police department in North Carolina. After retiring, I found interest in wellness. I obtained a degree in Health in Fitness Science. While completing my degree, I became an ACE certified Personal Trainer. The more I was able to work with and help others reach their personal goals, I obtained my ACE Health Coach certification. I continue to take classes and further my education in order to be more proficient in guiding and encouraging others to reach their fitness and wellness goals. I am committed to working with anyone, no matter the age or fitness level, that wants to become a better version of themselves. We all have room to improve. With proper instruction, motivation, willingness, and time, everyone can create a better quality of life for themselves. Every person in unique. Every individual has a set of goals that is exclusive to them. After completing an initial free assessment, I will create a fitness and wellness plan that is customized to your needs and wants. When a person feels good about themselves, they feel better about everyone and the world around them. Good health and fitness opens doors to a brighter you. Come and join me in my daily journey; Adjusting Sails for Wellness.
