EXPERIENCE

My first experience in a gym wasn’t the best. I started working out by lifting weights with my high school football team. I was one of the skinniest and weakest kids on the team and felt too embarrassed to work out in front of other people. I started working out at home to get stronger and gain more confidence in myself. Seeing progress mentally and physically made me fall in love with exercising and the process that went into achieving fitness goals. Since then, I’ve trained for marathons, Spartan races, and spent time studying and trying many different exercise plans and training styles in order to feel my best both physically and mentally.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Feeling good inside and out. Working out is awesome! You can get stronger and faster, change the way you look, become more flexible, gain or lose weight, and manipulate and challenge your body in so many ways. On top of the physical benefits, I love working out because of how it makes me feel. I love the feeling of accomplishment after a workout when I know I’m done with the most physically exhausting hour of my day and I did something to make myself better. No matter how you exercise, or what your goals are, finishing a workout is a small victory that gets you one step closer to feeling your best both inside and out.

EXPERIENCE
As a trainer I work to educate my clients about what they are doing and why - how what we do will help with meeting goals, but also how these movement patterns and strength will make everyday life that much more enjoyable on many levels. Learning correct form and movement before adding a challenging weight will always be the beginning of anything you do.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Nobody’s goals are exactly the same. Two of us may have the same number of pounds we would love to say goodbye to, or have the same 1 rep max lift in mind, or want to wear the same size pants - but it is the reason why we want to achieve our goals that make them unique. What I love about my job is helping women create, achieve, and build on the goals that drive them - which so often translates into energy and passion outside of the gym as well!

EXPERIENCE
Health and fitness has changed my life. Being someone who has been dealing with Crohn’s disease since I was 7, gaining weight and muscle was always a challenge for me. My sophomore year of college I decided to take fitness seriously. Unlike Crohn’s disease, fitness is somethingI can control. I can make sure I am eating healthy and getting good workouts in. This mindset has changed my life by not only changing the way I look, but also the way I feel. The satisfaction of setting and reaching goals, completely changing my body, and the confidence I’ve gained thanks to working out is something that I am passionate about helping others experience.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I believe in bettering yourself everyday. As long as you are trying to be better than you were yesterday you are on the right track. I believe this is the case in life and in the gym. Every time you’re in the gym you should be trying to be better than last time. Whether you are lifting 10 pounds more or 2 pounds more you are still making progress towards your goals. It’s a series of small wins that ultimately lead to the big win of reaching your goal. I am passionate about helping people better themselves everyday.

Functional Movement Screen- Level 1
Corrective Exercise Specialist

EXPERIENCE
I have been working as an athletic trainer for the past 5 years. During this time, I have worked with a variety of ages, training levels, and sports. A major focus area of mine has been in developing and implementing prevention programs to help reduce the number of injuries. My personal fitness journey is the driving force behind me wanting to branch out and help more people reach their goals. I have struggled with weight loss my entire adult life. I know the hard work required to reach those fitness goals and want to help all my clients achieve theirs.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Prevention is the key to success! Reaching your fitness goals can be hard, so you never want to have to stop a workout routine because of pain or injury. Correcting dysfunctional movement is the foundation to help clients excel in a program. The better you move, the stronger base you have to build upon.

EXPERIENCE
I’ve worked in the fitness industry for 30 years and for 25 of those years as a Personal Trainer here at Healthworks. I have a soft spot for expecting and new moms and enjoy working with fitness newbies and women interested in overall health and fitness who are trying to incorporate exercise and activity into their busy lives. I especially love the challenge of teaching them navigate the gym and make decisions about their workouts independently.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I believe that a health and fitness program should be fun, effective and time efficient and should fit into a woman’s life and not the other way around. Even as a fitness professional as the mother of three children I struggled to find the balance between raising a family, my career and maintaining and improving my fitness. I understand how overwhelming that can feel and the good news is that with the right program and a little encouragement and guidance, it can be done.

EXPERIENCE
Over the past 10 years I have worked with a variety of clients. My background as a college lacrosse player and coach has helped me provide student athletes with the tools they need to take their game and fitness to the next level. As someone who has done the Boston Marathon as well as Triathlons I have the knowledge to assist anyone looking to challenge themselves and push past their fitness limits, whether it is your first 5k or your 10th Ironman, I’ll work with you to achieve results you are striving for. And while not all of us are competitive athletes I find that it is important to build a program that works for you and keeps you consistent. My most recent experience working with my senior clients has proven to me that our limitations are often in our mind and a body in motion is a healthy body.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Health and Fitness is a lifetime pursuit achieved by setting and accomplishing small monthly, weekly and daily goals. Getting started can be intimidating, for many of us it’s a struggle to find, (make) the time, to put ourselves first. We are all our worst critics. Too often we listen to the negative voices in our head which break us down and have us believing we can’t ever reach the fitness level we desire. I believe that a healthy fitness program begins with the mind and the language we use within ourselves. Replacing the I “NEED or HAVE” to work out with “WANT” to work out, or “WANT” to be healthier. As your personal trainer I am here to support you and strengthen your inner voice, to motivate and guide you through this journey. I will provide you with the tools, knowledge and confidence to reach your full potential. It’s my goal every day to make sure you walk away from our session feeling better than you did when you arrived, physically, emotionally or spiritually.

EXPERIENCE
After battling childhood obesity for myself, and losing a significant amount of weight, I was inspired to help individuals reach their fitness goals. Since attaining my Personal Training certification, I have had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of clients, from weight loss to strength training and everywhere in between. There is nothing more rewarding than the day someone reaches their goal weight, or their personal best in a lift. Then to see each client further inspired to raise the bar, set another goal and to better themselves each time is what drives me as a personal trainer.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Personal wellness and fitness is one of the most beneficial parts of your life, but is also sometimes the hardest to try and improve. There will always be things standing in your way of building a better lifestyle. However, it is crucial to push through those barriers and to make sure you don’t quit on yourself. You can overcome every barrier and keep pushing forward.

EXPERIENCE
During my many years at Healthworks, I have worked with women of all ages and of every fitness level. I love introducing clients to exercise and helping them enjoy it as much as possible! I love the challenge of the experienced exerciser and taking their fitness to new levels. Through developing our relationships, I have helped countless women gain strength, prepare for a race or event, lose weight, prepare for birth, come back after giving birth, improve their posture, gain confidence, and most importantly, find what works best for them- for their body and their mind.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I know that not everyone is not going to love exercise as much as I do- and that is ok! But what is so important to me is that a client isn’t torturing themselves (mentally or physically!) by doing things that they hate because they think it is the only way to get the results they want. There are many ways to train and to be happy. I want everyone to look forward to their workouts and to the feeling they get during and after- and the reward that comes from doing what they thought was impossible!

EXPERIENCE
In my nearly ten years at Healthworks, I’ve enjoyed working with women who are both brand new to fitness, or looking to expand on their current routine. My favorite clients are motivated, and excited to learn more about exercise, regardless of their experience. I’m passionate about helping people move more safely through their workouts, as well as their day, and to feel stronger both in and outside of the gym. In my personal workouts, I love lifting heavy, and just completed my first powerlifting competition.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Training is so important, because it helps us to realize what we’re capable of, both in the gym, and our everyday lives. You’re stronger than you think, I guarantee it. Whether the goal is to do the pull up you've always wanted to, to feel healthier through a pregnancy, or more energetic while playing with your grandchildren, strength training helps with all of it. Above all, exercise shouldn’t be a punishment, it should be a way to celebrate, and enhance what you’re capable of.

I have been a personal trainer at Healthworks for over seven years. I work with a wide variety of clients of different fitness levels. I am passionate about providing my clients with challenging programs while also being flexible based on new goals, injuries, etc. My fitness journey has taken many twists and turns, the latest being a new role as a mom, which has helped me to identify with many challenges’ women face in the gym.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I am a big believer in the mental benefits of exercise. Sometimes a challenging workout is just as important for stress relief as it is for physical goals. My goal is to have you leave our sessions feeling better (both physically and mentally) than when you arrived. Whether that involves pushing you a little harder than you thought you could go or taking the time to reevaluate your fitness plan, I am committed to helping you get the most out of your training sessions. Having fun is important too!

EXPERIENCE
I have been in the fitness industry for ten years. I gained an interest in corrective exercise and pre/post rehab because I worked closely with a physical therapy office my first four years of training. I train individuals who are recovering from injury or pre and post surgery as well as seniors interested in injury prevention. I have always enjoyed playing sports and mountain biking, but my primary focus since 2012 has been with Boston Roller Derby.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Strength progressions can only be safely achieved if muscle imbalances and postural distortions are corrected first. In the years that I have been training I have yet to meet anyone who is 100% free from imbalances; therefore, it is imperative that one is aware of their posture and learns how everyday life contributes to the stress placed on the body. Through a structured core and posture improvement program, one can be sure that they will not only prevent injury and get stronger, but will learn more about their body than they have ever been aware of.
