“Do I really need a trainer? Can’t I just use this free app?” If you’ve ever asked yourself this question, you’re not alone. Plenty of people wonder whether personal training will be worth it.

Don’t let those big, tatted muscles intimidate you… Chris is one of the sweetest guys you’ll ever meet! Huge THANKS to him for letting me bring “the paparazzi” into the gym with us. I think the photos turned out amazing, even if he’s stealing the show in every pic!

Last month I experimented with walking/running an average of 10k per day. It felt wonderful to keep moving during my work breaks and on my commute!

There’s something magical about being outdoors. It’s so grounding. The smell of wet grass, the sound of rusting leaves, the touch of chilly wind… It always boosts my mood for days! Maybe it’s because our lives today are spent in front of glowing screens; in stuffy, enclosed spaces; with recirculated air; and little natural sunlight…

Commencement Bay

Throwback to my brief Tacoma visit. (Is Commencement Bay not breathtaking??)  I was in town for an excellent YMCA seminar! I’m so grateful the Y supports my continuing education. As a trainer, I never want to stop learning, improving, or finding new ways to help my clients. P.S. Tacoma, your scooter rentals are bomb.com.

Feeling the wind on their face as they bike. Finding an inner calm as they hike. Or fully immersing themselves in an engaging sport. When you were a kid, what…

Beautiful day for a workout with man’s best friend! (How lucky am I?) I got to throw the ball for this sweet doggo, Annabelle, while her human, Scott, kicked butt on the TRX! Scott impresses me every week with his steady gains and determination. This tough guy — with a heart of gold — trains…
