As a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Senior Fitness Specialist, with a strong background in exercise science and sports medicine, I am driven to teach and inspire clients to reach fitness goals through a combination of proper training, nutrition, and rest. Having been involved with health, fitness and bodybuilding for over 40 years, my mission is to bring the fitness lifestyle to older adults, helping them stay healthy, active, flexible, and balanced. My personal training experience is enhanced by a twenty year career as a clinical psychologist, providing an added perspective about the mind-body connection, and the psychological and emotional issues facing clients today. Additionally, I am a proven sales generator, and management professional.
