FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Tumbling-I like to first assess strength and flexibility, then go over any skills he/she knows or wants to learn, then discuss goals and time frame. I really work on tecnique and aim to prevent injuries by gaining strenthg and flexibility while learning new skills.  

With swimming lessons, I go over whether you have a pool or access to one, then discuss goals to determine what class, group or pirvate lessons etc. 

Also, my husband is an OT who works with special needs children in the pool or tumbling, balance, core and more.

Personal training or fitness classes I want to know your current exercise status, goals, time committment etc.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been teaching swimming lessons since 1991, got my degree in 1999 in Exercise Science, been a pertsonal trainer with numerous certifications since then, taught tumbling/gymnastics since 1997 and stay current on my ceritifcations, always learning and gaining more knowledge so I can share what I know with all my clients.  Recently MUTU Pro certified to help women with postpartum pelvic floor and diastasis recti issues.
