Strength training is more complicated than lifting weights up and down. Learning proper form and technique is important to prevent injury. Injuries in the gym are so often caused by improper form. Unless you have the education and proper training it is important to incorporate a personal trainer. As a professional in the field I will help you learn how to exercise properly and progress safely. I will help you get stronger and learn how to exercise on your own. I will help you achieve your goals faster by pushing you harder and keeping you accountable.
ARE INJURIES AN ISSUE?
I am trained and have years of experience working with injuries. I worked as an athletic therapist for the Varsity Football and Volleyball teams. In this time I learned a significant amount on injury rehab and management. If there is ever an exercise that you cannot do I have an alternative exercise. I will help you work around your injuries and use targeted exercises to help you heal and rehabilitate. I will help you get stronger, healthier, and make everyday activities easier.
Diet is extremely important in losing weight and staying lean. Nutrition can be complicated. It is easy to read about the next fad diet and try it out for a month or two. You may see results, you may not, I want to change your view on dieting and how to learn to love the foods you eat. This does not mean cutting everything out, it means fine tuning your habits and learning how to eat to fuel your body with nutrient dense food. I am a strong believer in the 80-20 rule and flexible dieting. This means “clean” eating roughly 80% of the time and not 20% of the time.
A diet does not mean a serious caloric deficit, going into severe caloric deficits can be detrimental to your metabolism and actually slow it down.
We want to be in control of your metabolism and train it to be faster and more efficient. I am here to guide you to fueling your body with the right foods and the correct time to eat them.
Together we will learn what foods are best for you and what your body responds best to. Food allergies are always taken into consideration and need to be addressed. The more you learn about your body and how it responds to food the better you will be at intuitively eating and discovering what not to eat. Join me in falling in love with food and your body. Learn how to fuel your body to achieve the most out of it. Through eating properly you will have better skin, gut health, metabolism, body composition, and overall mindset.
SPORTS SPECIFIC TRAINING
Training programs for athletic performance enhancement could include such areas as strength, speed, power, endurance, flexibility, mobility, agility, mental preparedness (including goal setting), sleep, recovery/regeneration techniques and strategies, nutrition, rehabilitation, pre-habilitation, and injury risk reduction. For competitive athletes, a primary focus in the gym will be to get stronger and more powerful, regardless of sport. I am here to help guide you as an athlete and push you to reach your maximum potential.
