As a personal trainer certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), I have combined the mechanics of training with a holistic approach to fitness that I developed from my Amish roots. That’s right, I grew up in Pennsylvania’s Amish country. And if you think that means I just know how to make furniture and bale hay, you’ve never seen me work out. Many of the exercises in my regimen are derived from motions and movements quite familiar to Amish men and women at work.
My philosophy is simple. I believe that a fun, challenging workout will result in weight loss, more muscle, and a stable core. I believe that incorporating yoga, breathing, and stretching techniques can help clear your mind and focus your positive energy on your workouts and on your relationships with others. And, finally, I believe that eating the right foods at the right time is essential in helping you stay active and burn calories throughout the day. It’s really quite easy: If you put bad stuff into your body, you will get bad stuff out.
More about me… I went to the University of Pittsburgh for Education and earned a Master’s degree in Organizational Development from Trinity University. Not only am I certified by the NASM, but I am also a Corrective Exercise Specialist. I balance my workouts with salsa dancing, hiking, cooking, reading and theater. I’m inspired by many people, famous and familiar.
