STRENGTH IN BODY & MIND
I first qualified as a Personal Trainer in 2003 when I obtained my ETA certification at the Sports Science Institute in Cape Town. As a pug loving, professional Personal Trainer in Connecticut, my main passion is guiding people towards a healthier lifestyle. With the added benefit of doing so in the comfort of your own home, at your workplace, or at a private facility located in Shelton, because not everyone has either the time, or the desire to join a franchise gym.
Every person’s body is unique; each with its own strengths and limitations. My method is to build a custom plan based on your shape, size, and physical goals. My aim is not only to transform your body, but to influence you in making more mindful decisions when it comes to your health.
Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. And I can show you how. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can achieve. I believe in finding the pleasurable side of fitness, and while there may be a sore muscle or two along the way, the amount of fun and levels of energy you will experience will far exceed the discomfort.
Whatever shape you’re in, we could all use a bit of professional guidance and encouragement from time to time. If you feel like losing a pound or two, or even bulking up an inch or so, whether you pregnant, post-operative or suffering from a disability, I can assist — get in touch with me today and let’s get moving.
