My mission is to transfer essential knowledge about diet, nutrition, anatomy and strength training through my services as a Personal Trainer. I will accomplish this by teaching, on a one to one basis, about muscle development and retention in order to accomplish each person’s individual goals.
One of my goals is providing strength training and training specific education to the those 50 and over. This demographics is the largest segment of the growing population. The medical industry has strongly suggested the health and wellness benefits associated with strength training. Strength training/weight lifting may not increase your life span, however, training will dramatically increase the quality of our lives as we age. We provide both one on one strength training and class for senior level training.
