Fitness To You
I have over 20 years of training experience, working in each level of fitness from the novice to the Ironman athlete. Health, wellness and fitness mean different things to every client I've had the benefit of training. With this in mind, I can structure a program for you based on goals we set and on your basic level of fitness. Whether your goal is to keep up with grandkids, lose weight and feel better about your health, or run a marathon, I have experience developing programs that produce results.
I offer a variety of packages including one on one and small group training to help meet your needs. Your success will be founded upon consistency and accountability and I will utilize nutrition journaling and structured, goal based programing to get you to achieve results.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First is a phone or a sit down consult to find out what your wants and needs are. We both need to be clear on what you want to accomplish and what is realistic in your life.
We will discuss goals, wants and needs. I also want to find out what your expectations are of me and your training.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a B.S. in Sport Science from the University of Idaho and am certified by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) as an Exercise Physiologist and American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Personal Trainer. I have 20 years of experience in the fitness industry and a trainer, coach and business owener.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I train in 30, 45 or 60 minute blocks depending on client needs and ability. 45 minute sessions are $55.
I also work with small groups. Pricing for those sessions depends on the number of participants in the group.
How did you get started teaching?
I started working with the employee wellness program in college. After graduation, I worked in a private gym and then moved on to own 3 small fitness studios. I now travel to clients homes.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with clients of all ages and fitness abilities. Those with chronic disease and the very healthy. I have been in the industry for many years and have come into contact with many different types of people with varying injuries and fitness levels. They are all challenging since everyone has different goals, wants, needs and ways of being motivated.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I recently started working with a client who's daughter contacted me to work with her mom. She wasn't excited about the prospect of working out, with or without me. But after the first month at renewal time, she said that she was actually enjoying it, feeling stronger and was plesantly suprised! We have continued on with her training!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Look for National Certifications and Liability Insurance. We are an unregulated industry, so anyone can call themselves a personal trainer. Do some research about experience and let them know what your expectations are.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Ask about experience, certifications and education. Why do they personal train? What types of clients do they work with? How will they design your workouts? Don't be afraid to ask questions about what your sessions will look like. Don't be afraid to ask questions period!
