More than skin deep...

In our appearance obsessed culture, weight training is inevitably marketed on the basis of vanity & aesthetics. It’s all about getting a beach ready bod or looking better naked. And that’s a shame, because while I'm all for better butts, the benefits of strength training extend far beyond the mirror: a revved up, fat burning metabolism, better posture, less back pain, greater ability to ward off osteoporosis, and functional strength. That's the kind of strength that lets you do what you do better -- whether that's lugging groceries, golf clubs, grand kids or Grover.

I am a certified personal trainer with over two decades of experience specializing in working with women of all ages and walks of life. We can train in my Emmaus, PA home studio or at your nearby home. Together we'll discover all the ways strength training can transform your body inside and out. Please explore my site to learn more.
