I’m good at what I do because I genuinely care for my clients. Some may say I become a little too involved in my clients’ lives, but I believe to be most effective, I need more than just the physical body.
Many of my clients come to me for overall health and not just weight loss. Since the focus in many cases is activities of daily living, having a regimented workout plan is not as necessary and we can “play” a bit more. It’s not unusual for me to create a workout as the session progresses. As long as we do things in a balanced manner and ultimately meet my clients’ goals, we keep things mixed up. It helps maintain interest and reduces boredom.
Fitness has been a passion of mine for longer than I had realized. I initially went to college for business and never found a job that truly suited my personality and interests. Finally, seven years ago, I had enough support to take a leap and give up the “9 to 5” job to pursue my fitness career. I love my “job” and I love my clients. It’s a rewarding experience I never anticipated.
