There is nothing more important than health and wellness. When we feel good, we enjoy life, contribute more and take better care of ourselves and our families. The secret? Slowing down and getting back to basics. We all get caught up in the fast paced culture we live in and in the end, we become victims of it. By taking ownership of our lives, modeling others and staying consistent, positive change can happen.
Lets face it; life presents many challenges and obstacles as we try to stay fit and take care of all other areas of our lives. My mission is to motivate, educate and create a sense of independence toward all aspects of fitness so that physical and emotional success is achieved. Fitness is a lifestyle and it is important to incorporate it into your schedule just as you take a bath and brush your teeth.
My Philosophy on Fitness Training & Nutrition
If you know or have met me, you may have observed that my body frame is respectable for my height. I know how to change my body composition because I have succeeded several times for Figure competitions. When someone asks me how can I help them change their body composition, I always refer to my competition days where it took great discipline to change my body so I understand the journey.
No matter where you are, it all starts in the mind by making the decision to change and sticking with a plan. Regardless of how little or how extreme you want that change to be, no one else can do that for you. Once a commitment has been made, that is where I step in to assist my clients.
I also evaluate your eating patterns and dietary habits to make suggestions of what you should incorporate into your daily intake. I encourage eating multiple times a day at specific intervals to increase the metabolic rate and burn more calories.
Flexibility increases the range of motion around a joint to help increase mobility, reducing the chance of injury, muscle discomfort and stress. When I help a client build strength, eat better, improve their flexibility and change their mindset to be committed, they achieve remarkable results. These results include weight management, improved eating habits and an overall healthier lifestyle.
