So your body isn’t perfect?

I’ll let you in on a secret… neither is mine. Neither is anybody’s. Fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. And it’s everybody’s birthright. But I don’t believe in a cookie cutter approach. That’s why we always start with a fitness evaluation. Everybody has a pre-existing condition, whether inherited or developed. It could be injury, recent surgery, extra weight, high blood pressure, creaky joints, arthritis, or a lifestyle that puts an extra stress on your shoulders. Together, we’ll see what can be improved, work on problem areas, and design the fitness program that fits you — without risk. It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. In terms of human architecture, form follows function. So, I take a strong stand on posture, balance, and educating you on the proper form. Your training will start with making your weak points stronger, improving your posture, and getting you in the groove of fitness without strain or injury. That way, you won’t burn out or get weak in the knees, but you will realize maximum results and a boost in energy and self-esteem.
