I've had a passion for fitness, health, wellness, and sports all my life. I believe its in my genes. My father has been an avid walker for more than 40 years ( with my help, he's doing Yoga, weights, balance movements, functional movements) and my mom has done water aerobics for 40+ years (now has added Tai Chi / mild weights / functional movements as well) -- both have turned 84 this year and are in very good health (knock-on-wood)

I decided years ago to become a Personal Trainer so I could share my passion with others. Early in my career I have followed different paths in health and fitness. I found that path that has lead me on my journey to where I am today. The pathway consists of senior clientele, and individuals with conditions that affect balance, function, mental clarity. My specialities include Certifications for: Senior Functional Fitness, Parkinson's, MS, Stroke Rehabilitation, Fall Prevention, Dementia, and TRX Suspension Training. I do however, work with all ages from 14 to my oldest client of 98. I focus on exercises and movements centered on training the body functionally for the activities performed in daily life.

I encourage support of family and caregivers. Upon request, I provide resources for families and caregivers for emotional assistance and understanding while offering a kind ear. I encourage having an involved,
educated support system to help with adherence in all aspects of health and fitness. My approach to health and fitness will build self-awareness, self-reflection, and self-compassion so you will be motivated in your fitness program. I provide a safe, effective, goal-oriented fitness program that is both fun and challenging. I constantly monitor and assess you and your program to achieve your personalized goals through hard work and adherence. I reassure you and your support system so your goals are met with compassion, understanding, and safety.

I am also a Certified Massage Therapist. I use Massage Therapy to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduces pain, assist in promoting overall health and wellness. Massage rejuvenates body, mind, and soul. I use Massage Therapy in accordance with my overall wellness support when needed.

I hold discussions and lectures with different support groups: Stroke Surviver, Parkinson's, MS, Dementia. I speak with Neurologists, Health Professionals, Care-givers, and physical and occupational therapists when needed. I work with a diverse cliental (ages -- 14 - 96) Most of my senior clients seem to teach me as much as I teach them. Life is wonderful that way. Learning from our experiences, being open and honest. I am a people person, who enjoys the communication and relationships created. I believe my personality is a great attribute of my business.

A little about me. I share custody with my kids, ages 14, 13. This is, by far; the most challenging and rewarding experience, raising my son and daughter, I will ever have. I hike with my kids (and alone), exercise very intensely - pushing my body and mind to the extreme! I play baseball, tennis, and swim. I create as much balance in my life as possible. I keep moving

Keep Moving every day!. Life is movement, movement is life!
