Our Mission & Vision

Health and fitness has turned into this puzzle that most of us can’t crack, especially with the daily demands that we face. We work to help you overcome the limiting factors you face and build on your strengths.

Our Story

I graduated from Central Michigan University in 2015 with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I was able to work with people that lacked the basic strength to be able to go home safely. My patients had dealt with car accidents, stroke, cardiovascular disease, degenerative joint disease and many other issues. Some of these patients had no control over their circumstance while others had not taken care of their body properly. Although it felt great to help people return home I wanted to do more in terms of prevention.

In 2016 I found the opportunity to work with patients in outpatient physical therapy. I love meeting new patients, pinpointing issues, and creating specific plans for patients based on their specific goals. There’s nothing better than patients telling me that they have started to feel better.

But there is still something missing. I want to help someone before a knee replacement is needed. I want to educate someone about the small muscles, the rotator cuff for example, and strengthen those muscles before an issue arises when weight lifting. I want to boost someone to the next level of strength training past basic strength exercises and pain relief. I want to dig deeper into the whole picture. What are your goals? What’s stopping you? I want to work with you to bring you to your highest possible potential.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a gym membership?

No, you do not need a gym membership. But, if you do have a gym or are interested in joining a gym that is a great idea. If you do have a gym membership that allows guests and would like me to meet you there for training I would love to do that. I would also love to put together workouts for you to complete on days that you do not see me so that we can work hard to reach your goals.

Can we train on the weekend?

Absolutely! I encourage you to reach out to me so that we can find a time that works best during your busy schedule.

Can I prepay online?

You are able to pay for 2-3 sessions in advance. Three sessions a week will help you meet your fitness goals faster. In buying 3 sessions ahead of time you will save $20 on your 3rd session.

Can you guarantee my success?

We will take a look at your current exercise and nutrition habits on your first day with me. I will make a plan to meet your fitness goals. We will assess your progress every two weeks to make sure that you are making progress. You should see improvement after 3-4 weeks of personal training and nutrition modification. It can be very difficult to change eating and exercise habits so I encourage all of my clients to reach out to me if they are having a difficult day or have any questions. Work and family schedule can be a huge limiting factor. I am available outside of normal operating business hours in person and online. I guarantee that with both of our efforts combined you will notice a positive difference on your health.

How many days per week should I train for?

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends physical activity 3-5 days a week. Benefits from specific exercise prescription can be seen with 2-3 training sessions per week. Intense exercise done more than 5 days a week can increase your risk of injury.

Can you come to a location of my choice?

There are many gyms that offer clients to bring guests for free.  I would be happy to meet you at one of these locations.

Should I see my doctor before seeing you?

It is always a good idea to get cleared from a physician before starting a new exercise and nutrition program. Examples of conditions that you should talk about with your doctor include but are not limited to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, and musculoskeletal injuries. Luckily many of these issues benefit from exercise. I will screen all clients for pre-existing conditions prior to beginning a program so that we can develop a program that’s best for you.
