Training Philosophy:
Each person is a unique individual and deserves an exercise program specifically tailored to meet their needs. Health and fitness is truly important for everyone from the dedicated stay-at-home parent to the elite athlete. It’s just a matter of finding what you enjoy and peaks your enthusiasm.

My approach is centered on the holistic philosophy and is geared towards expanding the client’s appreciation of the necessary attentiveness to mind and body issues. I emphasize positive self-talk, believing that the body goes where the mind leads. I enjoy partnering with my clients to achieve their fitness goals and helping them reach their potential, both physically and mentally. With the right plan, motivation, and consistency – all is possible.

    Shirmel's Cycle-n-Sculpt class at Ravenswood Fitness Center is a great workout. She works the class hard but makes variations to allow for different fitness levels.
    Shirmel has a deep understanding of musculature, making her exercises target all those "problem" areas!

    Shirmel is a really thoughtful and effective instructor.

    She spends a great deal of timing attempting to understand your objectives and tailoring the session to your needs.

    Sessions are varied (she is always trying new things), fun and effective.

    Highly recommended.
