I believe strongly in education, and have completed both university/college level course-work and certifications through accredited, well-recognized, national/international associations in the fitness & health industry. I continue to further my education by pursuing additional certifications in fitness, health, and nutrition, and strive to stay on top of this constantly evolving industry, ensuring my clients receive the best training for their needs.
This isn't a hobby for me - I am dedicated to staying abreast of industry trends and changes, committed to ongoing education so I can provide the best service possible.

Past Experiences & Successes
Throughout my career as a Personal Trainer, I've had the pleasure and opportunity to work with a variety of clientele, all broadening and enriching my range of experience. I enjoy the challenge that each new client brings, as each new client is unique, requiring careful attention to his or her individual and specific needs. The following is a list of my past experiences/successes, and I continue to add to this list, always willing and happy to work with whomever I have the good fortune to train.
I always strive to remain current and up-to-date with all conditions that I work with. However, should a situation arise that is beyond my scope of practice, I will always refer a client to an appropriate professional.
