I am pretty down to earth, really. I drive a mini-van and transport my kids to and from soccer, lacrosse, theater, track, wrestling, church, scouts, you name it... I have arthritis in my knees, so you won’t see me running, but I try to do some TRX, balance, strengthening sessions each week while walking as much as I can. But, I am very human, and don’t always do everything I want fitness-wise. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree with concentrations in Adult Fitness and Athletic Training in 1995, I have done everything from managing fitness centers and pools to basic one on one personal training. Although I haven’t worked with many athletes recently, I love injury management, and try to help my clients who have physical limitations to figure out their new normal, build strength, flexibility, endurance, but mostly knowledge of the what and why to do certain exercises. I trained and taught mostly middle to upper aged adults with real life bodies before I moved in July of 2016. Many of us have complications from old injuries that would cause past generations to say, "I must be getting old." My belief is that old activities may be able to be continued, with modification if injuries are involved, or a new version of that activity may need to be learned and adopted to still meet the mental, social and physical needs we have, and continue to feel and be young. I help many clients focus on core strength, balance, stability, flexibility, and overall strength... But, I love a great cardio circuit or HIIT class/session too. I would love to meet with you and see if we could set some fitness goals and begin sessions to find your new fit normal.

    Christine is superb! She fully supports you and challenges you with her suggested workouts. I've never known a trainer to work so hard to create workouts so fine-tuned to individual schedules and abilities. Fabulous!

    Great instructor! She walks you through steps if you're a beginner, challenges you if you're more advanced. She makes sure you get a great workout.
