For my clients I firmly believe in the benefit of regular exercise and well-balanced nutrition for their best body, mind and soul. My mission is to inspire clients to be the best versions of themselves that they can be. I'm committed to their journey every step of the way. With correct resistance training and cardio respiratory exercise you can increase strength and lean muscle mass, helping to maintain a youthful level of energy, an efficient metabolism, and a positive attitude. Time invested in yourself yields returns.

    I worked with Desiree over a 3 month period and made great strides towards my fitness goals. She was focused, prepared and had a varied routine for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Desiree and highly recommend her.

    Despite my hesitations, Desiree's positive reinforcement and knowledge of healthy exercise has gotten me off the couch! She has given me some great tips on basic healthy food habits that weren't drastic changes, but small changes that will help me reach my life changing goals. Desiree is fantastic at helping me customize my own workout plan and helping me tweak my old diet. After just the short time of following her advice so far, I can already feel a difference. I sleep better, I feel better through the day and I actually look forward to doing some sort of exercise. I'd say she did pretty well with this couch potato! These are things I didn't expect myself to ever say, but Desiree's personalized help is awesome!
