Personal Training

My Philosophy

Everyone deserves a chance to look and feel their best.  The only thing keeping you from achieving your health and fitness goals are the excuses you keep telling yourself.  So, what is it that's keeping you from getting there?  Is it motivation?  Accountability?  Knowledge?  Nutrition?  Time?  Whatever it is, I can help.  

Let me be your coach, encourager, accountability partner, nutrition counselor, and fitness guru.  It is my job to identify your personal goals, design a customized workout plan, lead you through it safely and effectively, and offer nutrition guidance along the way so that you get the most out of your program.  I would love nothing more than to help you create your most beautiful life.

My Personal Training Process

Everyone is unique; different people need different things. Each training experience is tailor made to you and your needs.


Our first session will be a chance for me to learn more about you...your goals, health concerns, and obstacles.  We will set some initial goals and I will gather some starting data to show your progress.


After I know more about you, I'll construct a personalized training schedule so we can work together on meeting your goals.

See The Difference

While it takes time to meet your goals, we'll be working together every step of the way. I get the greatest satisfaction from you being happy with your transformation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many days a week do I need to work out?

This depends on the type of exercise you are doing.  Generally speaking, you want to dedicate a minimum of 2-3 days per week.  Any fewer than that and you will feel like you are starting completely over each session.  NASM recommends that healthy adults complete 150 minutes of moderate intensity cardio, 75 minutes of vigorous intensity, or a combination of the two.  And, for strength or flexibility, you should get at least 2 days per week.

What should I eat before a workout?

That depends on the person, time, and type of the workout.  Ideally, you should eat some form of easily digested carbohydrate about an hour before toast and peanut butter or fruit and yogurt.  But, if you are working out first thing in the morning, that may not be an option.  Some people can tolerate an early morning cardio workout without food, but need something before a strength training session.  So, experiment a little to find out what works best for you. 

What should I eat after a workout?

How quickly will I see results?

You should eat a snack consisting of protein and an easily digestible carbohydrate within 60 minutes of your workout in order to replenish your glycogen stores and nourish the muscles that you just trained.  Then, eat a meal 2-3 hours after your snack.

People who are consistent in their workouts generally report enhanced sleep, mood, and energy levels within 2-3 weeks.  Changes in body composition can take longer to appear.  But, the closer you stick to your exercise and nutrition plan, the sooner you, and others, will recognize the changes.
