PHILOSOPHY:
I believe that there is a perfect type of exercise for everyone. Whether it is taking a walk, going for a run or swimming in a pool, these activities can positively influence someone's health, even if they have been sedentary for most of their life. Two things that I believe are key to reaching an adequate amount of exercise are persistence and hard work. I want to help clients figure out what type of activities they like and show them how to motivate themselves to be healthier. Instead of being on the sidelines, I want to inspire people to take control of their lives by making positive changes and experience all the good that activity can bring.
