It is my philosophy that fitness be a lifestyle, not just an activity. To get fit and stay healthy requires a personal effort, a personal program, proper eating habits and a positive mind. What you believe about yourself is a vital part in achieving your fitness goals! I want to consider all the obstacles that may keep you from healthy living, including your state of mind. Sometimes the hardest weight to lose is the emotional and mental kind.
I have spent many years as a clinical therapist, and although my aim is not to provide personal counselling to my fitness clients, I do think that my expertise in the psychological arena will only serve to aid my clients in reaching their full potential. I have a Master of Arts in Counselling, and an undergrad in Religious Studies from Ambrose University. I started my journey towards becoming a Certified Personal Trainer in January 2008.
