After spending years in sedentary high tech jobs, I went back to school to earn a Master’s in Exercise Physiology. I remained at UT and ran an exercise physiology and metabolism research lab where we studied the effects of sports drinks, supplements, and regular foods such as Wheaties and chocolate milk on exercise performance, body composition, and metabolism. The best part of my job was talking to a wide range of participants, from sedentary people to super-stud athletes, about the relationship of their diet and exercise habits to their body composition.
I use my research and personal experiences to encourage my clients to explore different types of training, embrace their body type, and have fun. I know what it’s like to be sitting at a desk all day and how it can negatively affect your body alignment, mobility and overall health. Depending upon your goals, we can combine cardio, weight training, core and mobility exercises. Whether you are a first-time exerciser who wants to get started, or a long-time athlete who needs some new ideas, I’m ready to help you!
