National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM):

As a certified personal trainer, I have comprehensive knowledge of human movement science, functional anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, as well as functional assessment and program design.

Pilates Sports Center – Teacher Training Program:

This 450 hour program is a Cutting Edge Approach to Pilates Teacher Training – PSC teaches a contemporary approach to the method developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s; one that preserves the essence of the original technique but incorporates today’s knowledge and principles.

I often incorporate the following in my private sessions:

  • Pilates Mat
  • Reformer
  • Cadillac
  • Wunda Chair

Primal Health Coach:

One of the world’s leading Primal/Paleo/Ancestral Health, Fitness, & Lifestyle Experts. I can help you achieve optimal body composition, health, and performance with my nutritional consulting services. This is a great addition to personal training with me.

Pilates and Pregnancy Workshop (by Pilates Sports Center):

Pilates is the best workout for pregnancy!! After taking this workshop, and combine it with my experience in teaching pre and post natal women, I am able to understand the needs, limitations and risks associated with the pre and post natal client and will help you to have a smooth, enjoyable pregnancy and recovery!
