About Donna

When I coach clients for health and fitness, I help them to understand how their thoughts and feelings effect their perceptions. I believe a persons health is dependent on what is going on the inside, not just physically, but emotionally as well. I simply call it the art of personal training from the inside out. My mission is to bring out the best in peoples talents and abilities. No matter what physical challenges there may be. Where there is a will there is a way. The following quote by unknown is a strong metaphor for this. "When life throws you a curve ball, hit it out of the park.”

My favorite client story

I have too many to pick a favorite and would only share if I have the consent of my client. I respect the confidentiality of my clients. What I can share is that my favorite words from a client is about how wonderful they feel and that they had so much fun training with me.

My favorite exercise

:o Another tuff one to choose since there are so many... I do love to put a creative spin on exercises that would traditionally be quite boring. Intergrating multple exercises is always fun and I love to be creative and match the workout to mood and music.

My favorite quote

Train smarter not harder.

My training philosophy

You are what you think and so shall you be. My philosophy and tag line for Be Fit By Design is personal training from the inside out.

My training experience

Over a decade of experience training clients with all kinds of different physical challenges has tought me one fact that stands out above the rest. That no matter what the challenge is, that it truly is, all about what is going on the inside that will make or break our success in achieving our goals.
