Her philosophy is: “In order to achieve any goal, especially fitntness goals, the first step is to help the client define specific and realistic goals and set a specific timeframe in which to achieve those goals. Then, an exercise plan is developed including a nutrition program to achieve their goals. Significant fitness goals can be reached within three to six months. A critical element to reaching goals, however, is a positive mental attitude and a willingness to accept challenges and overcome obstacles. As a dedicated professional, my job is to help my clients keep their attitude positive and provide creative and simple solutions for overcoming obstacles.”
