Body Image Support
I enjoy working with clients across all ages, genders, and goals. However, the natural progression of my career and studies has led me to develop a few niches in the industry:
Adults entering or returning to a commitment to fitness
Individuals with a history of injury or limitation in movement
Pregnant and postpartum women
Executives and business owners balancing work and personal life…and adding a fitness regimen to the mix!
Every body is worthy, and I believe every body benefits from movement. As your personal coach, I will create a thoughtful training program designed with your unique body and goals at its core. I enjoy the challenge of assessing each client’s health and training history – including current injuries or limitations – and helping each one find the joy and results in pain-free yet effective exercise. My intention is to reduce the frustrations and anxieties many feel when embarking on a fitness program, and provide the mental and emotional support to stay consistent in the pursuit of your goals. I have been lucky enough to work with some of the most trusting clients, and felt their triumph as they experienced their goals being realized.
My credentials include being a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Sports and Conditioning Association and a qualified TRX instructor, and holding a certification as a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist and Coach. As a first-time mom to a 4-year old, I have also experienced the unexpected physical challenges of a postpartum body, and it drove me to seek out the best education in order to provide excellent and safe coaching to other moms, whether you are 6 weeks or 6 years postpartum.
A few other fun facts about me:
I am a leopard print fanatic.
I worked in fashion product development prior to turning my hobby into a career in health and fitness seven years ago.
I have lived on both coasts and, despite the weather, prefer East coast life.
I am a sucker for Etsy graphic print sweatshirts, especially any with a reference to 90s television.
