Feeling lost, stuck or overwhelmed? Does the idea of lasting change seem impossible? Stopping the cycle of slipping up, giving up and beating ourselves up starts with recognizing our value. There is never a perfect time to change, and change does not have to be overwhelming. Making little changes over time, results in big changes that last.
Before becoming a Personal Trainer, I was a Physical Therapist Assistant for 13 years. This was extremely rewarding work, but the physical demands of the job resulted in back and shoulder injuries. I learned to manage these injuries with a thoughtfully planned restorative exercise program. This has enabled me to continue an active lifestyle and prompted a change of careers to personal training.
My mission is to empower people to discover how exercise can change your life for the better. “PREHAB” to prevent “REHAB“ is my training style. It incorporates movement patterns that support and enhance everyday activities, strengthening and stretching of injury-prone areas, and emphasizing correct form. We cannot stop the aging process, but we can keep from losing the ability to do the things that matter most. People can be strong and active at any age. Together we will discover ways to be physically active and have fun at the same time. Let's do this.

Cindy is wonderful. I’ve been taking her classes for over 4 years (live, prior to COVID) and she is a dedicated professional. She worked with me prior to and after my bilateral knee replacement surgery and I give her credit with how well and quickly I recovered. Her workout routines are structured and organized for maximum benefit. She cares about her clients physical abilities, stamina and attitude. She is aware of strengths and weaknesses and adapts accordingly. She is definitely worth working with and I highly recommend her.
Cindy is the real deal! Her background in physical therapy and years of experience in personal training shows in her innate ability to understand how to design a personalized program that is challenging, fun, and attainable. Her authentic kindness and caring is evident in her genuine motivational messages that are encouraging and supportive. Meeting up with Cindy for personal training is a highlight of my week, and keeps me on track for good health, fitness, fun, well-being, and self-care. I highly recommend Cindy! She is the greatest personal trainer of all time!
I first began working with Cindy two years ago when I was postpartum from my first child. Cindy is warm and encouraging and really focused on getting to know me and my needs. She has a holistic approach to her training, considering all aspects of a person's health and wellness. She has a kind and gentle presence while also being motivating. When I took one of her group training classes with other women of different ages and abilities, she did a great job of giving us individual attention while attending to the group as a whole. I really love and appreciate her focus on women and she creates an environment that is inviting and empowering. Cindy always asks for feedback about what is going well during training and what I wanted to do differently and she is responsive to my needs. I will definitely continue to work with Cindy and I give her the strongest of recommendations.
Personalized attention. Cindy worked with my elderly mother to increase her fitness and strength. She gave her effective and manageable exercises while also taking time to get to know her as a person.
Cindy is a fantastic trainer. I’ve been sedentary during the pandemic. I made a great choice with Cindy. She has the experience and great attitude to support seniors, like me.
Cindy is an excellent and knowledgeable trainer. If you’re looking for someone to help you get your body moving in a calm and healthy manner, she’s the one. Her focus is on technique and form over speed and reps. She helps you with exercises that focus on all the core muscle groups, but also focuses on the supporting muscles that we don’t often think about. My balance and stability have greatly improved, which make exercising in general a lot easier.
