Meet the Trainers
I have been certified as a Fitness Trainer through ACE for 10 years.
I have enjoyed working with individuals and groups of varied ages.
My experience has included training clients with past injuries and ailments such as herniated disks, rheumatoid arthritis, and past shoulder injuries.
I have obtained a certification in limited range of motion exercises (LROME) for the 50 and over age group. The most gratifying aspect of my career has been assisting my clients towards happier and healthier lifestyles.
It would be my pleasure to assist you in obtaining the same results.
