Palm Beach Gardena, FL 33418
I have been interested in fitness since my teens. In the late 70's I got a job at a gym as a fitness instructor. After that time, I changed careers, I stayed committed to working out at gyms doing strength training, etc. Several years ago I decided that I wanted to work at something that I had a passion. At that time, I started studying and became a certified personal trainer.
I worked at LA Fitness for 2 1/2 years and now train clients privately. I have trained many people who have had previous injuries from working out or have had hip or knee replacements. I've also helped people avoid having to have rotator cuff surgery. I love what I do and hope that I help my clients find an enthusiasm toward exercise. After I created a studio in my new home, I purchased a vibration platform machine. My clients get benefits from using it as a warm up before their sessions and/or a cool down afterwards. Many of my clients enjoy our training sessions being in their pool since you can do so much more in the water and it's like play time!
I am certified for teaching many Silver Sneakers type classes. I have a Senior Fitness Specialist certification with ACE, and I have recently been certified as a Functional Aging Specialist with the Functional Aging Institute.
I continue to take weekend workshops and self study courses to learn new areas of study and to sharpen my skills and to specialize in training baby boomers and seniors. I just got back from the 2019 FAI Summit in Albuquerque, NM. I'm just getting ready to study to become a certified wellness coach!
