Training Expertise

 With over 10 years of success and experience, we are capable of helping you create a fitness program that will help you reach your goals for continued independence. We will show you the best exercises to use to continue your journey for healthy living. 

Your Success is Our Goal

 I  understand that adapting new fitness habits is difficult and often fails. My goal is to change your view on fitness, so that it becomes part of who you are and your lifestyle. I strongly believe that if you practice healthy habits, you will be able to continue living an independent healthy lifestyle.

  • Loose fitting, comfortable clothing made of breathable material to allow air to flow.
  • Athletic shoes that provide adequate support and good traction to avoid slipping.
  • Avoid perfumes and loose jewelry.
  • Water & towel are recommended.
  • Arrive a little early so the instructor can give you some pointers.
  • Alert your instructor of any injuries so I can provide modification options.
  • Maintain good upright posture and make full foot connection with the step.
