I am currently a marathon runner and a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified personal trainer. My interest in health and fitness began eight years ago when after years of being obese I decided to make the change to a healthy lifestyle. I lost 60 pounds in five months and have kept the weight off since then. I am a current student in the Physical Therapist Assistant program at SUNY Broome and am excited to join the team at Chenago fitness providing services designed to assist individuals in lifestyle changes that will positively affect their health and wellbeing. The NASM Optimal Performance Training (OPT) model simultaneously improves flexibility, core stabilization, balance, strength, power, and cardiorespiratory endurance. By incorporating multiple types of training into every program, the OPT method improves all biomotor abilities and builds high levels of functional strength, neuromuscular efficiency, and dynamic flexibility.
I have certificates in Balanced Body Mat 1 + 2 along with Reformer 1. I have been teaching group fitness classes since leg warmers were in style! I specialize in Pilates ,since I believe it is a form of exercise that everyone can do at any age and with no prior fitness experience ! I am certified through AFAA as a Group Exercise instructor and I am also a Certified Personal Trainer. One of my most motivating and inspiring experiences was to work with Pilates Elder, Mary Bowen.
When I am not teaching Pilates, I am an assistant teacher for a Head Start Program. My sport is Marathon Canoe Racing. I have two grown children and a grand daughter who already knows that I love exercise and paddling my canoe!
