Hi! My name is Shannon… I am a lifetime fitness fan and recent breast cancer survivor who rediscovered my inner and outer strength through properly taking care of my body & strength training. Nothing gives me more joy than to kickstart other women (& men) down this same path!
I love to help people reach their goals, whether it be losing weight, gaining strength or improving their overall health. I see my role as empowering people to do things they never thought they could and having a great time doing them!
Shannon has helped me kick my sugar habit and has motivated me to work out. She is energetic and caring. But, tough!
I signed up to train with Shannon when I finally came to the realization that I needed some help with creating a healthier lifestyle. I have a lot of exercise videos and equipment at home, but we all know that means nothing without committed motivation. That is definitely where Shannon fits in. She oozes positivity, inspiration, and health and fitness knowledge. I have had 7 session with Shannon so far, and this is what I can say for sure: Shannon makes sure that I am doing each exercise correctly, and explains the proper technique to make sure that I do not hurt myself! With each new exercise she introduces, she explains what parts of the body it works, and watches to make sure that I am doing them correctly. I have seen improvements in my physical strength and have pushed myself harder than what I thought I could be capable of. My sessions are always challenging, yet Shannon respects my limitations. She also really listens, which means that my workouts are customized specially for me with exactly what I want to work on. Shannon never allows me to get down on myself when I miss a workout or have a cheat day (or two). She is teaching me to live without guilt and that is a big one. Shannon’s enthusiasm is infectious!! And don't let her big biceps intimidate you! She is super down to earth, with a giant, kind heart and to top it off, she is totally hilarious! Plus, she is super accommodating with scheduling appointments. I have zero hesitation in recommending Shannon to any of my friends.
She is super easy to connect with right off the bat, hilarious, and a super caring and comprehensive trainer. I always look forward to working out with her and I’d recommend her to pretty much anyone.
Shannon's programs are well planned out and thoughtful. The descriptions of the exercises are really great. Shannon is very thorough and really helpful when I had questions or concerns. I definitely recommend Shannon.
I offer 3 month in person, private training plans. When a client hires me for a program, we typically have an initial phone consult followed by the client filling out an intake form. The first time we meet, we will do a "before" assessement, which entails: going over the intake form, performing a short fitness test (about 20 min), taking 'before' pictures, measurements, weight & body fat. These are all tools we will use to measure progress later!
I have been a health & fitness coach for 3 years but have been lifting weights for the last 25 years. I have also been a soccer player my whole life & am now a soccer coach for local AYSO teams. Coaching in all forms is a passion of mine as I really enjoy helping people learn new skills, sharpen old ones & have a blast doing it!
