Personal Training Approach
Turning Fitness Into A LifeStyle
For me it is about combining exercise and nutrition into every day making it your life’s routine.
Lifestyle Fitness works!
As a trainer, the most important outcome in all of my client relationships is their success in attaining the goals that they/we set. Our initial meeting is an essential, in-depth consultation that highlights a client’s past (family, medical, and exercise history), current exercise/fitness levels and eating habits, and future goals, desires, and needs. In accomplishing those goals, it’s important to combine resistance, cardiovascular exercise, and nutrition.
In addition to being a Personal Trainer, I am also an educator. I want my clients to understand the whys and hows of my philosophies and instructions. For instance, I am less concerned with how much weight someone moves rather than how they move it. FORM, FORM, FORM! You have to feel the muscle being worked specifically for a particular exercise.
When it comes to cardio, hi-intensity is the most efficient way to lose weight, body fat and keep your metabolism at its highest. Most people like to hear that low-intensity exercise is better — because it is easier! However, you need to burn more calories to lose body fat.
Of course weight loss requires smart nutrition to truly be effective! Exercise in and of itself has little effect on fat loss. When coupled with nutrition, the pieces to the puzzle start to come together.
I am a Manual Stretch Therapist certified through the Flexibility First Academy. The key to unlocking the body’s potential and developing top elite performance is optimal flexibility. By isolating and reactivating tight or tense muscle through stretching, you restore the flexibility and function of the muscle and the joint to which the muscle is attached.
