Not seeing the results you are seeking from your current exercise program?

Can you relate?

You have constant lower back/ neck pain

You workout 6 days a week but can barely lose weight

You workout regularly and still have low energy the rest of the day

You experience pain or injury from your workout routine

You workout all the time but your muscles aren’t getting bigger or more defined

I get it!

Before I became a personal trainer, I thought I had all of the answers to keep myself in tip-top shape. I always had trouble keeping muscle tone and didn’t feel like my performance was improving with as much time as I spent in the gym.

But then things changed.

I dedicated my life to learning the ins and outs of fitness. First by getting certified by the top fitness accreditation program in the industry and then spending years in a top gym facility with hundreds of clients. What I found out was that the majority of people never develop a proper foundation for their fitness program.

That’s why they weren’t getting previous results!

So I developed a tried-and-true system that is customized to each individual’s specific needs and level of fitness. NO MATTER WHAT YOUR CURRENT FITNESS LEVEL, THE CHALLENGE CAN BE ALTERED TO MEET YOUR NEEDS!

In my time as a personal trainer at the 2nd busiest gym in the United States, I learned how to consistently produce dramatic results for clients that were previously unable to break themselves from their own personal fitness plateaus.

These principles are the basis of every move you do in my classes!

Imagine if…

You could actually lose those 15 lbs that you’ve been struggling to shed.

You could wake up in the morning and have sustained energy the entire day.

Your recreational activities like surfing, hiking and tennis were suddenly much easier to do.

You no longer experienced pain as a result of your exercise.

You finally had the muscle definition you’ve been longing for.

What will you learn in my Group Fitness  Class?

  • Proper core and glute and core engagement – The foundation of all exercise movements.
  • The 7 key human movement patterns – Fundamental to pain-free movement.
  • Kinetic chain alignment and applying it to exercise motions.
  • How to properly warm up and cool down before and after exercise or any physical activity.
  • Proper use of functional fitness tools such a TRX, Resistance Bands, Kettle Bells, Balls, Sliders and more!
