I specialize in customizing programs for clients with various health related goals. Postural assessment, functional strength training, weight loss, corrective exercise and post rehabilitation, as well as sport specific training are among my personal strengths and I enjoy the challenge of finding creative ways to help my clients succeed.

Progression is key! It is extremely important to progress clients in a safe and effective manner by starting with basic movements and over time implementing more complexity and skill. This is a defining factor of training at Four Gates. 

Everyone is unique and should be treated as such. There is no one size fits all or cookie cutter approach to training, so I will listen, observe, and give/take feedback to create a unique program for you!

If you are interested in personal training I offer a free 20-30 minute consultation to go over goals, injuries/illnesses, and any other questions you may have.
