More importantly, I teach them ways to make their fitness goals sustainable so that they can continue to make progress on their own and in the future. I look at my clients as a whole not just as parts. Many clients come to me with vague goals like to lose weight, gain strength and feel better. But I try to look at things like their posture, balance, flexibility and mental attitude to determine how to get them to reach their goals in a sustainable way. This way I give them the tools to continue to improve now and in the future.

Before any personal trainer loads you up with weights to strength train, your body must be prepared to work towards functional performance that allows correct form using only body weight. Putting an extra load on without an awareness of your muscle imbalances will only cement the dysfunctional movement.

an exercise by the end of the session that they could not do at the beginning. It is more than getting a client to focus. It is actually training the body to override default patterns that occur automatically and are embedded in tight muscles. I am very effective at coaching people to move with the correct form, and this is possible after the proper warm-up and inclusion of a conditioning phase to prepare the body to move its own weight, and then add on loads. Understanding how your body moves is essential to your progress. I focus on correct form. I will regularly assess your movement, strength, and flexibility.My work with you will help you to get the results. I will provide you with both the knowledge and the physical experience necessary in order to reach your strength, fitness, and weight loss goals.I have helped many people transition from physical therapy back to strength training workouts in the gym. Also, I have helped many clients before and after pregnancy and surgery. When a person comes from physical therapy, I build on the foundational work of the physical therapist, and their assessment, diagnosis of the problem and the specific prescription of exercises.For my clients to be able to adhere to the strength training plan, there is a lot more work that needs to be done to integrate the problem area into whole body movement. The underlying history of circumstances and imbalances that produced the overuse injury are still there, and I work with people to be consistent about performing the conditioning and stretching necessary for long term recovery. By the end of our first session, you will immediately begin to notice improvement.
