 “You reap what you sow”. Many of us dream of a “beach body” that is muscled, sculpted and symmetrical, low body fat, and the strength/mobility/agility of a professional athlete. At A1A Fitness, I will work with you to give you the physique that you have always wanted, the strength levels you have always aspired for and the functionality you deserve.

Time spent in the gym is a poor indicator of productivity!! Like you, I value your time and appreciate your commitment so the programs I write and the training systems I implement will maximize your time and results. Let’s transform your body shape, achieve that core strength, develop optimal functionality, and enhance your self- esteem and emotional wellbeing in an environment which nurtures positivity and efficiency.

Special Populations

 My philosophy is grounded in helping others!! The National Council on Aging (2019) has found that 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 will fall each year. Stabilization and balance training can prevent falls and fractures!! A bold statement but …. “if you don’t fall you don’t break a bone”. Let me assist you with a “fall prevention” program that is constructed and implemented specifically for you.

To counteract the loss of bone mineral density (BMD) that accompanies the aging process and to prevent the development of osteopenia and osteoporosis (brittle bone disease), I utilize the Osteoblast Training® concepts. This type of strength training focuses on increasing bone strength at the primary sites of osteoporotic fracture (hips, spine and wrist).

Cognitive wellbeing is of vital importance as we age. Neuro-degenerative disorders such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease take away the quality of life that we are accustomed to. The “new age” approach of NEUROGENESIS training will activate new brain cells and stimulate the density of the hippocampus which slows down the rate of memory loss. Thought provoking and problem-solving training programs conducted in a fun-loving way will help you get the results you want.


My Methods

With an initial assessment such as a shoulder mobility test, I will help you determine your starting point and will work with you to establish your short and long-term goals. These assessments will include but are not limited to: Functional Movement Screening (FMS), evaluating your previous and current health history, training status and sports experiences and metabolic calculations to determine caloric intake and expenditure.
