My fitness philosophy
The foundational values in my programming are:
1. Make peace with your body, and move with joy
2. Prioritize long-term health and safety
3. Focus on function, not numbers
Fitness isn't about having a low body-fat percentage, tight six-pack, muscular butt or hulking arms. It shouldn't be judged by the shape of your body, a number on a scale, spectacular feats of athleticism, muscle mass or any of the other metrics we are taught to observe by pop culture and the fitness industry. Fitness isn't a state of being or a necessarily a hobby, either, it's a fundamental part of living a healthy life.
I think fitness is truly about you feeling your best. Every body is unique and every person enjoys different things, so the true test of fitness is whether or not you are able to feel good in your body every day and live the vibrant, functional life that YOU desire. The biggest barrier to attaining this state of fitness is often our schedules, but sometimes it's our beliefs about ourselves. For most people, myself included, movement is easy once you get going, but often it's difficult to start and difficult to stay engaged. That's where I come in as a trainer ––to help people follow-through with what they already know they want to do. The goal is to be your best self every day!
