Studio Owner / Personal Trainer / Health Coach
I have trained over 7,000 sessions, and have enjoyed each & every one. My clients are all unique and so is each workout we share. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE helping people realize their full potential.
I get to work with some amazing people and help them achieve things they never imagined they could do, or forgot that they once could. They gain confidence and become empowered by their new healthy choices and body movement. I get to help people relieve and STOP PAIN! We all know that AMAZING things can happen when we are feeling great!
I moved to Seattle in 2000 to pursue the outdoors and the arts. I enjoy hiking, back-country skiing, trail running, yoga and making ceramic art. I enjoy helping people become stronger and more confident through achieving their fitness goals. I believe that with a little structure, accountability and encouragement everyone can enjoy a healthy balanced lifestyle.
While I have been able to incorporate exercise throughout most of my life, I did have a period where I struggled with nutrition and being overweight. I have since lost that 40+ lbs through healthy eating and exercise. Having overcome these challenges personally, I can relate when helping clients with weight management and health coaching.
• TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I approach each training session with the individual in mind. By having an understanding of his/her exercise history, injuries, mobility and lifestyle I help clients realize their physical potential. I base exercise choices on improving functional movement, core stability and balance, to work the body the way that we use it in our daily lives. I combine that with the proper balance of strength training, endurance, and flexibility/mobility work -- specific to the clients wants and needs. So every workout is customized to your overall individual needs; and to that specific day. I use my creativity to keep clients motivated and excited to exercise by making every workout fun, challenging and unique.
