Personal Fitness Training

Get Into the Best Shape
of Your Life

My mission is to empower you to reach new heights—for mind and body. If you’re ready to look and feel great, I'll design a fitness plan to achieve your goals. I'll be your partner and motivate you to excel and get results.

Mental and Physical Benefits of Personal Training

Getting fit has many rewards, and can literally transform your life at any age. I want you to be in shape for anything you want to achieve in life and find happiness!

In training sessions, you'll make progress toward your goals and accomplish things you never thought possible. You’ll discover self-confidence and a new sense of vitality. Exercise is a powerful way to improve your mood by relieving stress and depression.

Losing weight and getting in shape with exercise lowers your risk for many diseases. If you’re overweight, you’re at risk for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and cancer. Let’s lower your health risks together.

Personal training sessions include a combination of cardiovascular conditioning, weight training, flexibility exercises, nutrition counseling, and monitoring your progress. With these tools, I'll work one-on-one with you to create a program that gets results.

Cardiovascular Conditioning

The heart is the most important muscle in your body. We'll work together to increase your cardiovascular health and endurance. Plus, I'll help you train so your heart reaches its optimal rate for burning fat.

A few activities that increase cardiovascular health are walking, running, biking, and swimming. If possible, I like to spend part of a training session outside.

Cardiovascular training should be performed 3 to 5 times per week, lasting 30 to 45 minutes per session. I can help you make this time as fun and enjoyable as possible.

Weight Training

I'll teach you proper form for each weight-training exercise. Plus, I'll help you progressively increase your level of strength and get the maximum benefit from your hard work.

Weight training includes working with free weights (barbells and dumbbells), weight machines, cables, tubes, and body-weight resistance.

Weight training has many rewards:

  • Stimulate muscle growth up to your genetic potential
  • Strengthen muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Increase bone mass
  • Improve posture
  • Increase metabolism (to burn more calories even at rest)
  • Improve sports performance
  • Decrease risk of injury

Flexibility

Flexibility is an integral part of any fitness plan. That's why I incorporate stretching into every workout. I'll demonstrate safe, effective exercises that increase your flexibility.

Flexibility exercises can:

  • Decrease risk of injury
  • Increase range of motion in joints
  • Improve posture
  • Relieve muscle soreness
  • Promote mental relaxation and stress relief

Nutrition

Good nutrition, when combined with exercise, has an important role in getting lean and fit. My goal is to help you lose fat, increase your energy, and improve your overall health.

I'll ask you to keep a diary of your diet. Then, I'll analyze problem areas and recommend changes you can make immediately to maximize the results of your exercise program.

If you want to lose weight, I'll coach you to cut calories through smart food choices and timing of meals. If you want to gain muscle, I'll advise you on how you can supply your growing muscles with the nutrients they need.

Monitoring Your Progress

Charting your progress is essential to stay focused on your goals. As you see your progress, your self-esteem and confidence can soar.

I’ll monitor your progress by:

  • Performing initial fitness testing to establish a benchmark and help create an exercise program tailored exclusively for you
  • Measuring your body mass index (BMI) and fat percentage
  • Monitoring your heart rate to target its optimal training zone for burning fat
  • Ensuring that the difficulty level of exercises increases progressively toward achieving your goals
  • Providing constant feedback and coaching during your workouts
