medical exercise + personal training

As a Medical Exercise Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer, I work with individuals who are looking to improve their body composition and fitness level, as well as clients with a wide range of medical conditions. 

I'm trained to develop safe and effective conditioning programs for clients with musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological or metabolic disorders, and understand the related anatomy, pathology and biomechanics of common medical conditions, and how common medical conditions respond to exercise.

I also perform assessments, document sessions, and communicate with medical professionals and insurance carriers. I'm trained to identify red flags and warning signs that indicate the client is in need of evaluation or treatment from a licensed medical professional.
