FAQs


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

Each client will get to meet with me one on one for a Interview and Evaluation. I will learn all about your medical history, lifestyle habits, current goals and current fitness levels.  Each client will be weighed and body fat taken, put a treadmill walk test, various flexibilty tests to determine areas of restriction, strength trests to determine weaknesses and a postural assessment to paint the whole picture. Next, will I determine if your goals are SMART and help you prioritize areas of improvement and help you put a plan in place.  Finally, I will design the appropiate cardiovascular, strength, flexibility and mobility work to help you become the best version of  You!

How did you get started teaching?

I never really enjoyed your average gym class in high school. So, when given the opportunity to switch that over to fitness training I  did.  It was my sophmore year in high school i got involved with fitness and it has been part of my lift since then. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with clients of all ages. From being involved in a Cleveland Clinic program for children and their parents to live a healthier lifestyle through exercise, diet and behavior modification to working with the older adult with chronic disease in cardiac rehab program to regain their functional capacity, beginners just starting thier fitness journey to those who have fallen off the wagon and needing to find thier way again. 

Whether you are just beginning your journey to a healthier you, are already on your way and looking to push past a plateau, want to get rid of the aches and pains that hinder daily life or reverse the symptoms of a chronic illness I can motivate and educate you on what YOU need.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

1.Research and make yourself familiar with different certifying bodies. 2. Know your needs and goals. 3. Know your limitations and define special conditions 4. Know what motivates you 5. Watch the trainer with other clients


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. Can you commit to this? 2. Are you physically capable of doing the things you want or will it take you time to get there? If there are 10 steps in a process and you have never done any of them you can not expect to start at 5 or reach 10 tomorrow. 3. Do you want to do this? 4. Why are you considering this? 5. Who are you doing this for? 6. Are you willing to change the behaviors you need to in order to achieve your goals? 7. What obstacles will stand in your way? 8. How will you overcome them?
