Background: As both a Registered Dietitian and an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist I am uniquely positioned to help you get the most out of your workouts. You can’t outwork a poor diet! Whether you work with me, or one of our highly skilled trainers, I’ll help you develop a customized nutrition plan that gets to your goals faster. Nutrition is the key to living a fit, strong, and healthy life.
As a trainer my philosophy is to make you better at what you do every day, whether that means putting away the groceries, doing yard work, chasing your grandkids, or playing a sport at a high level. Together, we’ll build lean muscle in a way that translates to real-life ability. I’ll keep you moving at a brisk pace to keep the heart rate up, burn fat, and give you as much value as possible for your training session. A typical workout with me includes a warm-up with dynamic mobility drills, a total-body weight training circuit with cardio and mobility drills mixed in, and finally a cool down to keep your muscles loose and leave you feeling relaxed, yet energized.
If you're a golfer of any age, I can use TPI's level 1 golf screen to identify specific deficiencies in mobility and stability that are keeping you from performing your most efficient golf swing. I will then build and take you through a customized program to help you swing easier. Level 1 clients also tend to report moving better and having fewer aches and pains, whether golfing or just going through their everyday activities.
When you're ready, you will progress to TPI level 2. Level 2 is all about assessing your strength and power as it relates to the golf swing and taking you through a targeted program to increase both. It's not uncommon to gain 10-20 yards of driver distance while improving your overall fitness level.
