What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First we meet for a consultation to evaluate fitness level, ask questions about current and past fitness experiences and diet. I also take body fat using the Poliquin Biosignature Modulation technique which allows me to figure out which hormone is currently out of balance. A plan is created that fits the clients lifestyle, time commitment and fitness level.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
have a MS in Exercise Physiology, Nutritionist Certified as well as working on my doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh. I am also ACSM Personal Trainer and Health Fitness Specialist certified, Poliquin BioSignature Modulation certified, Precision Nutrition Certified, Titliest Precision Institute Golf Fitness Instructor Certified.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I use to be 280lbs and lost over 100lbs. I am a cancer survivor and athlete with multiple injuries. After transforming my life, feeling good emotionally and physically I decided I wanted to do the same for others. I was in med school at the time and decided I wanted to prevent rather than to treat, so I applied to the Masters program at Pitt in Exercise Physiology and got certified as a Personal trainer. Transforming and making an impact on people life brings enjoyment and fulfillment.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with celebrities, stay at home moms, cancer survivors, obese clients looking to lose weight and clients looking to get ready for competitions as well as CEO's and the elderly.
