It's all about goal-setting: what is it you'd like to change or improve about your body? Your overall health? Your life? How much time are you willing to invest in the process--and it IS a process, just like any other.
I work primarily but not exclusively with older adults, and specialize in movement disorders such as Parkinson's. I've taught chair-based exercise, done gait and balance training, coached boxing for PD, and have helped clients improve their cardio capacity. Life is motion, and I enjoy helping clients improve and maintain their functionality. The emphasis is on activities of daily living for the average person, but workouts can be made more demanding for those seeking a more challenging workout. I also teach swimming and cycling, and coach running.
When working with a new client, I start with an exercise readiness form that helps me establish if you can safely start an exercise routine. If needed, we ask for a medical release. After that, we go through a series of assessments that help me determine your strengths and weaknesses. Any exercise regimen designed for you would take into consideration medical history, medications, past injuries, current lifestyle, and enjoyment. It should be FUN, something you look forward to doing.
The best part of training is getting to know clients and seeing them achieve their goals.
