Fitness Coaching

Fitness is never static and as we age, our exercise and movement needs change. You can’t just “set it & forget it!” The functional training programs I create for my clients are ones that meet them where they are in terms of their goals, lifestyle, and availability to commit to our work together. Together, we’ll build strength & muscle by utilizing weight lifting & body weight exercises which prepare you for real life movements and increase athletic performance.

I place a heavy emphasis on unilateral exercises, technique & form while attaining a balance between pushing & pulling strength and between knee-dominant hip extension and dominant hip extension.



I am able to work with clients in person or remotely, and offer tailored fitness plans which can be performed at home, at a gym, on the road, or wherever you may find yourself. These plans don’t have to rely on access to specific equipment and focus on resistance training and mobility work.

Weight Training

Why should you weight train? Lifting weights does not burn as many calories during the workout as an equivalent amount of cardio.  But the benefits of weight training continue long after your workout is over. While lifting, you burn some calories. In the hours after lifting, you burn more calories to recover from the workout. The day after that, you will burn more calories as you repair the muscle damage the workout has created.  The day after that, even more energy is used to adapt by creating stronger ligaments, tendons and muscle.

Benefits of Weightlifting:
  • Relieve stress
  • Build muscle
  • Improve heart health
  • Fortify bones
  • Improve balance
  • Boost brain power
  • Help regulate hormones
  • Improve mobility
  • Boost your confidence

Because accessibility is so important to me, the resistance training I do with clients requires minimal equipment such as dumbbells, kettlebells, weighted vests, slam balls, and bands. I also craft plans focused on body weight training and are not tied to the use of any specific equipment.
