My passion is fitness, period.
I do one-on-one or duo in-home sessions ranging from traditional strength training and cardio, continuation of physical therapy rehabilitation programs, mat Pilates, yoga, stretching, HIIT (interval training) and every combination of them all! I customize a program that works for you and your goals. I will provide a great workout for you when we are together, and give you activities to do on the days we are not training together. I want you to enjoy your workouts enough in order for them to become a sustainable part of your lifestyle. I am passionate about performing functional movements, meaning movements that you do in your everyday life. This allows your daily activities to be effortless and prevents potential injury.

The most recent addition to my fitness repetoire is an in-home Allegro 2 Reformer. A Reformer is a large piece of Pilates equipment. Used for strength, flexibility, cardiovascular, core work, and more recently physical therapy - it is an innovative and fun way to work in all of your fitness needs in a safe and effective manner. Everybody from elite athletes to beginning fitness folks can benefit from these workouts! Sessions take place in my home in the Knox-Henderson area and are 45-minutes in length.
I will not yell a you. I will not make you cry. But I will support you and push you work hard in order to see results! We will talk about nutrition and other healthy lifestyle habits and how we can incorporate them into your life.
Don't have a space to work out? We can meet at my home using a Pilates Reformer, White Rock Lake or Katy Trail! I do 30, 45-minute or 1 hour sessions. Rates vary based on location and situation. My experience runs deep and I am a very compassionate and personable professional.
I have been a personal trainer since 1995. I have trained people of all sizes, ages, genders, and ability level. My undergraduate degree is in Exercise and Health Science from Alma College in Alma, MI and I completed 2 years of coursework for my Master's degree in Exercise and Nutritional Science at San Diego State University. I studied athletic training for 6 years and was certified with the NATA (national athletic trainer association) which is rehabilitation for sports injuries, so I have a rehab and therapy background as well.
I taught Pilates inspired workouts at Bodybar in Dallas for 6 years, and got my first Pilates Mat certification in 2014. I completed my 200-hour yoga training with Jayme Bushmaier and Amy Johnson in 2015.
