“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”

-Neale Donald Walsch

The body is capable of amazing things. Admire it. Challenge it.

Consistent strength and resistance training is the pathway to strength development, and the development of body awareness will aid you in performing everyday activities with ease along with tools and techniques for injury prevention.

I create specific routines based upon specific needs and goals. Each 60-minute session is geared toward developing functional movement patterns while encouraging clients to work outside their comfort zone. All routines are individualized, and are implemented to improve range of motion and mobility. By focusing on body alignment and development of muscular strength and endurance, as well as cardiovascular strength and endurance, I tailor each program to each client as an individual with individual goals. This approach creates a firm foundation for advancing the frequency and intensity of each program at each client’s own rate.

Cardiovascular health plays a key role in maintaining a healthy body and mind and is critical as we age. Specified routines are designed to not just increase lean muscle strength, but to elevate respiration for heart and lung strengthening and endurance training.

There is endless research on the overall health improvements that come with exercise of any kind. Research from the AHA shows that strength and resistance training not only helps to build strong muscles and bones, but also strengthens the heart and lungs. The College of Health and Sciences’ Department of Health, Leisure, and Exercise Science at Appalachian State University states that “Resistance exercise increases blood flow which reduces blood pressure.”

“What you do today can improve your tomorrows” – Ralph Martson.

Being able to decipher truth and fact from propaganda is exhausting. Food consumption is the greatest factor in a client’s success rate when it comes to weight loss. With regards to nutrition, Michael Pollan said it best, “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” Pair this with the practice of staying as active throughout the day as possible, and you have a recipe for success.

As a certified Weigh Loss Specialist, I work with clients to help them better understand their own behaviors and perceptions regarding food and nutrition. If you can change your behavior, you can change your outcome. Awareness is the key. Successful weight management comes with a healthy relationship with food.

If your goal is to reach or maintain a healthy, ideal weight, you must learn to maintain a healthy life. “Your diet is not only what you eat. It is what you watch, what you listen to, what you read, and the people you surround yourself with… be mindful of the things you put into your body emotionally, spiritually, and physically. -Unknown

“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from over overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.” - Rikki Rogers

We live in a world of the unknown. Be prepared. Be confident.

Krav Maga is an effective, real world self-defense system, better known as self-defense training. Krav Maga training combines the fundamentals of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Conditioning with specific training in techniques used for self defense in real world scenarios. This reality-based system builds upon instinctive reaction-based movement patterns to help you react quickly and effectively in the face of a sudden threatening encounter. Having even the most basic techniques can help you become safer by becoming more aware and more confident in your ability to defend yourself in an unfortunate situation.
