Personal Training

How are you different from a regular trainer at a gym?

With my background in anatomy, biomechanics, and physics, I create a plan that is not based on fads or trends. Instead, I keep your health history in mind, address any acute or chronic injuries, and develop an exercise program that belongs to no one else but you. Because every body is unique.

Muscle Health Care

How is this different from Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy approaches injury rehab from a protocol-based model. As a Muscle Health & Exercise Specialist, I use a variety of screening and assessment tools to find where any limits in your joint mobility may be. Once I identify where your joints can and can’t move, I’ll focus on improving your muscles' ability to move your bones evenly on each side of each joint in your body.

How long does it take to get results?

This depends on your health history, what the assessment I conduct tells me about your individual needs, and your health and fitness goals.

Do you take insurance?

No, I am not approved by most providers for insurance.

Yoga Class

Small Group Sessions

What should I wear to a class?

Wear clothing you feel comfortable moving in. For virtual classes, wear tops and bottoms that are a different color from your mat.

How do I access a virtual class?

Once payment is received, an email will be sent to you with login information. Follow the instructions and allot 5 minutes before class for tech setup.

What do I need to attend a class?

Check the class description for details about what you'll need. Have water nearby so you can stay hydrated.
