About this pro

My niche is an emphasis on endurance, fat loss, strength and conditioning, and conditioning the body to become metabolically strong. I have fun with my clients and develop strong relationships. I care a lot about all my clients and their well being. I work with seniors, athletes, weight gain, weight loss, and maintenance clients. I also include nutrition coaching which is an integral part of healthy habit building.

It’s personable and very rewarding, especially if the person you train and coach becomes fully invested in their health.

    Just started working with Liz on my nutrition. She was honest, informative, and helped me understand my relationship with food and results in a simple way! I’ll leave a review in about 90 days to check up on my progress! Thanks Liz!

    We hired Liz for private swimming lessons for our 6-year-old daughter during late summer (3X a week in August, total 13 sessions). We found Liz to be very personable, and an extremely skilled and knowledgeable coach. Liz is very accommodating with scheduling and drove down to our community pool for the lessons, which made it convenient for us. She communicates especially well with little ones and was super- patient with my daughter (who is no easy pupil, LOL). My daughter’s comfort level in the pool increased tremendously, and she mastered numerous skills including front and back float, streamline, back stroke, etc. in a relatively short time. I wish we had started her earlier in the summer, so she would have had more time with Coach Liz. We highly recommend Liz!




FAQs


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

For personal training: I start with an assessment; in person we continue with goal setting, define a workout program most likely the program suitable for the needs of the client, and we scan the nutrition/lifestyle as well as review current habits. 

For swim lessons: I meet with the swimmer/parent and discuss and have a assessment swim to determine the swim level of the potential swimmer.

I have several certifications: NASM cpt, ces. USA swimming, ASCA. I also have NFPT.

I have a degree in exercise science and nutritional wellness from TWU.

You get what you pay for 😊


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