Coaching Philosophy

Our approach to coaching is simple and honest. We design our programs based on your current level of fitness, your goals and your needs.
 
Using a variety of assessment tools we gain an accurate measure to determine your starting point, health challenges, preferred activities and personal goals. Then we design a personalized plan for your success.
 
And finally we offer training and support to help keep you motivated and on track.
 

Focus Areas

  • Health: No matter where you start, your health is most important. If you are starting an exercise program your goals may include reduced blood pressure, improved mobility or healthier body composition.
  • Fitness: Here is where you take it to the next level. Increased frequency and duration of exercise will significantly improve your quality of life. Goals might include walking in your first 5k, hike a local trail, or begin competing in a sport.
  • Sport: Ready to set a PR? By committing to regular, periodized training, based on your goals, anything is possible. With proper coaching you will learn what to do when, and how to fit it all into your busy life.
