As your NEW personal ISSA Elite Trainer, yoga, or kickboxing instructor, it is extremely important to fitness success that you Get Up, Be Raised Up, Grow FIT! Regardless of your ability to remain motivated by internal or external factors, as a personal trainer I can take your workouts to another level.

Psychologically, human beings react and push themselves in different ways when it is known that someone is watching them.  As a mental health psychotherapist and clinician, exercise is vital for maintaining mental fitness, and reduces stress. Studies validate it is effective at reducing fatigue, improving alertness and concentration, and enhancing overall cognitive function. This can be helpful when stress has depleted your energy or ability to concentrate.  We assess and target your MIND AND BODY connection (the right way) not the band-aid approach to fad diets or workouts.
