Associates in Exercise Science


Associates in Fine Arts - Dance


Prenatal and Postnatal Corrective Exercsie Specialist


 


With my work and educational experience and over 10 years of dance training, I am always inspired by the amazing capabilities of the human body and have a strong desire to help my clients reach their true potential. I’m a firm believer that regardless of circumstances, the human body is meant to move and continuously be challenged to grow and build new strengths.


My education began at Chandler-Gilbert Community College where I completed the dance program and received my Associate's in Fine Arts- Dance in 2015, and I am currently continuing my dance experience with two dance companies in the Phoenix area. In 2016, I decided to pursue an education in exercise science, so I joined Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s exercise program to gain hands-on experience from highly experienced fitness professors. After completing the courses, I earned my Associates in Exercise Science as well as the American College of Sports Medicine Personal Trainer Certification. In November 2016, I started to gain hands on experience with an internship at a local corporate wellness clinic called Modfit. I provided training and corrective exercises for sedentary, desk-bound individuals with the use of the Power Plate.


My training focuses on resistance training with the use of free weights, resistance bands, and other fun equipment like tires and sandbags. I also focus on cardio training with the use of HIIT and cardio circuits. I don't believe cardio is only improved by running on the treadmill for 45 minutes. I have a wide range of clientele that I provide training services for ranging from sedentary to highly active individuals. I do specialize in sport-specific training for the unique population of dance athletes. With my experiece as a mother of two boys, I also specialize in on-site training for prenatal and postpartum women!
